When was it listed with a realtor?
Also does that realtor have a feed setup to go to trulia or did they manually enter it?
It might just take a little bit as it can take up to 72hrs to appear if Im not mistaken.
I used to live there - born and raised in Albany but I live in Buffalo now. My father is actually selling his house in Center Square - It will be listing within the next two weeks. Its a great area with quite a bit to do. Parking is always an adventure!

I wouldn't get too hung up on the list to sale price ratios for a specific neighborhood. Agents often site this number and while it provides some information, it is often misleading because agents don't price homes perfectly. In addition, homes with stories such as divorce, jobloss, etc. will skew the results. Therefore, you really need a fairly large sample size and even then this ratio provides limited info. The following link will show you the market trends report for the four county area for 2009. This includes the average list to sale price ratios. Here is the link http://alturl.com/znf2 To see specific neighborhood sales and listings check out http://www.Albanynymarkettrends.com Just type in an address and you will get an automated report.

The property will most likely be assigned to there REO dept. If you know who the Lender is, call there customer service line and ask for there REO dept. Once the home gets assigned (1-2 Months) they will most likely tell you who the listing agent is going to be.
There are truly several ways to answer your question, depending upon what your goals are. I would want to know if you are looking for a place to live for yourself, if this is purely an investment, non owner occupied home, etc - I would really want to know those kinds of things. Taxes are highest in Schenectady ( the city ), but also run quite high in most of the towns around here, just a fact of life in NY. School distrcits have an impact on home values, and the higher rated ones in the area ( guilderland, bethlehem, niskayuna, north colonie and voorheesville) are all well known, and all those area have had fairly good levels of appreciation over the years. i know you are just looking around, asking some questions, if you want to chat a bit more about these things, please feel free to e mail me directly at Brian@TheCapitalTeam.com - I would be happy to speak with you about towns, investment areas, etc that may help you in your search.... more

Albany and the greater "Tech Valley" region is a smart place to be investing in real estate. With the strong local focus and growth in the semiconductor technology and energy industries we expect very nice appreciation here in the coming years. In terms of investing my question would be are you looking for short-term or long-term return on your money. When a client comes to our team we discuss your goals, timeframe, and financial situation (I also worked many years as a Financial Planner / Stockbroker so we discuss how real estate fits into your overall portfolio). Are you looking for immediate cash flow, long-term growth, tax write-offs, or all three? When I know those answers then we can give you advice that makes sense for you. Taxes, insurance, utilities and other expenses are all part of the APOD (Annual Property Operating Data) analysis we go through for our clients on each property. Please feel free to contact my office, or any competent Realtor who specializes in investment real estate.... more
There is a rehab loan through FHA called a 301K which would allow you to puchase the home and finance improvements. It is detail intense but certainly worth it if you find the right deal. I think they loan up to the finished (rehabbed) value, plus 7%. For a total amount of 107% LTV.... more
That really depends on the condition of the home and what the finished potential is. It was most recently listed at $36,000 (way below market value). It is now pending. There must be some sturctural issues that need to be corrected. Typically a 2 family in that location in Albany with 3 BR's in each unit would range from $135,000 to $215,000 (estimated).... more
