Please tell me how I can list my condo for sale on Trulia, if possible? My email address is asg1jd@yahoo.com. Thank you, Avery Gerstein
You can pay to post it.

You may want to interview a few Realtors. They can help tell you what your place is worth. I would love to assist in anyway.

I'm trying to find an condo building address, that has sold 1 and recently has another condo on the market. How do I find them both?
You can ask your Realtor to send them. You can google it. You can look in the tax records. Lots of options out there.

Micah Riley-Local Expert answered:
Can a basement that isn't a walk out increase the value of a home if it is finished and contains a 3/4 bathroom, dreesing room, gym and laundry area?
I would absolutely say say. HOWEVER, it depends on how much you are going to invest into the basement. Usually a basement finished will add about 5-10% to a homes value.

Is there anywhere in Chicago, IL that I can go rent an apartment or an house without getting a credit check performed. Can someone please help me out?
No they do credit checks at most of them. However, you can write a letter to explain why your credit is bad. This will help explain the bad credit.
