When a listing is "under contract" someone has placed an offer on that property and the seller has accepted that offer. The Seller can still accept back up offers in the event that the current buyer cancels their contract.... more
Can you explain further what you mean by incorrect information? The agent that represents you should be able to adjust the information. If the agent adjusts it on Trulia it will only last short term.... more

Your question is a legal one so is best answered by a real estate attorney. I suggest that you speak with your listing agent on how to proceed.

There is not a clear, easy answer to your question. If “bigger” was the answer then why not just have one big room? If more rooms was the answer then why not have lots of small rooms?
A house has to have balance. If you have a large house it may provide space for more rooms – and you seem to be focusing on bedrooms – or decent size. If you want to combine two bedrooms which are small in order to have a larger bedroom suite and you still have four other bedrooms – assuming they are not small – you should not suffer too much in value. But, now you have eliminated buyers who must have one more bedroom than you will have.
Will you house suffer in value compared to a similar house that has one more bedroom? I think there are other aspects of the house that also have to be considered. Is it a large house or simply a house with a lot of smallish bedrooms? Will the resulting change make the house substantially different from other comparable neighborhood houses?
On the other hand, if the change you envision is provide for the great living enjoyment of you and your family in a house in which you expect to spend many years to come, I say “Do what makes you happy”.... more
All real estate contracts must be in writing in the State of Oregon. Your acquaintance would not be able to get loan docs drawn up without a fully executed contract to present to the bank or mortgage company.

It depends on what kind of friends you have, actually.
If you're like me, and your friends are people that you admire, that you feel honored to have in your life - then you';d only hope that they'd deign to serve you in a professional relationship.
Some people have friends whose bonds are somewhat less flattering. If your real estate friend likes you because you're the designated driver and bail bondswoman, then, well, yeah - I might look elsewhere, too!
It really comes down to what you think of that professional and your relationship. We can't advise you. Although I'll tell you - it bites to have a friend decide to pay another person thousands of dollars to do your job because "it's uncomfortable." As if losing on out several thousand dollars in professional fees isn't uncomfortable.
All the best,... more
You are correct about Trulia.com having incorrect property values, because Trulia.com is neither an appraiser or a real estate agent. The only way you'll know the true market value of a property is to have a real estate agent do a cma for you & show you other similar properties that are currently for sale, have the property appraised & have a ready willing & able buyer for the property.
Please, whatever you do, do not ever trust any website to give you an accurate value of real estate. However, it is true that every now & then a blind squirrel does find a nut.

The better question is, is it worth it to you to stay 6 months and maybe not rent the other 6?
Usually if the rent is right, somebody can use a short term rental. A good candidate is someone looking for a property to buy or having a home built.
All these questions are so open ended. May I suggest you have a one on one conversation with a property manager or another real estate agent. GreatLakesRentalProperties.com or Jasmine McMorris (313) 585-8972... more
