Go to my profile, listings and view my listings. If they don't show up- do a search by MLS number. If they still don't show up, then they were never added. You can add them yourself or use a service like postlets that is free and will post them on Trulia for you. Hope this helps!... more
Your agent should be able to show you average showings for similarly priced homes in your area - that's a report that I run for my Sellers every week. I'd also suggest that you ask to see the feedback from previous showings - my Sellers see exactly what I do but I know some agents like to 'screen' the feedback. Houses are moving in our area - I had a listing go under contract in just 14 days last month - but it *is* a tougher market. . .... more
It depends... I have to upload mine individually and create the listing myself. They aren't automatically downloaded from Realtor.com or the MLS system. It also can take up to 48 hrs or so for them to approve the listing before it "appears" on Trulia so that they have time to verify the info/content.
Hope that helps!... more
There are areas around Raleigh where pricing has not dropped and in some cases have even appreciated. In most all areas of Raleigh the number of sales have dropped but not always the pricing. If you are interested in the statistics and/or information about any area in particular feel free to contact me.... more
That's something you'll have to discuss with your listing agent. as per your listing agreement.. if you have a listing agreement w/ a firm, then other Realtors can't legally provide you with advice about what to do... ask your agent about current market conditions, competitive pricing, and then make an educated decision from there while keeping your bottom line in mind... price is ultimately what sells houses. Good luck w/ the sale of your house and w/ the new job! Have a great day!... more
Oh gosh a complex and tough question. My first concern is how well these homes are marketed, especially in a very competitive buyers market. Are you just marketing them on your own or did you pay to list them in the MLS and places like realtor.com and other common sites for broader exposure? Are you willing to pay a % to the buyers realtor for bringing the deal to you? It should be worth your while - you need as many people "selling" for you as possible.
Any decent real estate lawyer should be able to write up the contracts for you - this is just standard contract law after all. The best part of seller financing of course is that if they default that you get your house back - but gosh only knows in what condition. In theory, their down payment to you off-sets some of this risk.
This is cheating a bit but you may wish to ensure that they are listed as single family homes, rather than townhouses - to help ensure a broader audience for people looking. Townhomes are often just as good to many people as single families - provided the association fees are reasonable - especially if they are a low quarterly #. A LOT of agents list townhomes and even condos in this way. Should they as professionals in the field - well ... no - but it happens quite a lot.... more
There are buyers shopping everywhere but honestly, the higher valued homes are selling slower then homes under $417,000. The Jumbo mortgage market is really hurting the larger homes with larger price tags!
I'd suggest that you interview several agents. My team offers a virtual listing presentation to make the choice simple. Honestly, an "outside the box" marketing plan is need now more than ever to sell homes. You cannot just stick a home in the Multiple Listing System and cross your fingers and wait. A Realtor has to pound the pavement and find buyers!
I'm more than happy to get you some information about sales that are comparable with your home. ITB can be tricky!... more

If the room is heated and cooled by the wall unit, it may count as living area if other criteria are met.

I work the North Hills area extensively and would like to take a look at the home. My office is in the Landmark building if you prefer to meet there first. Please give me a call when you get a chance. Steve

The 31 day trick will not work. Any agent with access to MLS will be able to get a complete history of the home. Did you do an honest comparision of your home to the one that sold? What were the more desirable traits of that home versus your home? Sometimes some relatively minor and easy changes can make a difference. You might want to consider hiring a stager to review your home and make suggestions for you.... more
Good Morning Richard:
Pull up your listing where you want to enter in an OPEN HOUSE. Once the listing is up, look at your listing contact info box located to the right of the screen you will see a place to tell Trulia about an Open House. Click on that area and it will be sent to them by email and they will add it in to the remarks.
I find the best way to announce OPEN HOUSES is to put it in the remarks section when you add the listing in to Trulia.
Hope this helps. Have a fantastic day!

Depending on where it is, you are probably going to lose money selling so soon, depending on the job opportunity, you have to decide if it is worth it. If you email me the address, I will be happy to do a CMA and give you an idea of the value based on recent sales.
It'll have no effect. The future value of the property will depend on future market conditions when you go to sell. What the previous owner paid has no bearing on the current value of the property.
The Triangle MLS has over 8,000 Realtors. Not all of them are "producing" agents. According to Trend Graphix, there are 7198 producing agents Triangle-wide. Of these producing agents, Many are part time, or minimally-producing.
I train new agents, and would be happy to set up a time to speak with you in person about the business in general. Shoot me an email if you'd like to chat.
Hope that helped,
