Hi Michael - Normally as a Keller Williams real estate agent, when we enter our listings into the MLS, we syndicate it to several websites including Trulia.com. We normally see it post no later than 48 hours.
Are you listing your home with an agent or are you trying to market it yourself?

I would love to take a look at your home and give you some pointers. Keep in mind that kitchens and bathrooms make a huge difference however in our current market be careful of what you do and how much you spend on the upgrades as you are not doing them for you.

Check your Contract to see if you both cecked/signed the ARBITRATION/MEDIATION clause:
You have two choices at this point:
Give in, do the work and keep the sale, or,
Let him walk and keep the Deposit if you can.
It is as simple as that:
How badly do you want to keep this deal?
Good luck and may God bless... more
Depends on the house and how well it is priced........I just listed one, on Wednesday, for 799,000, and it has already had 3 showings .......and someone is coming back for the 2nd time this evening.
I have one listed over 1.4 million, and it has been shown twice in the 2 weeks since it was listed..........
It's hard to generalize....but, truthfully, in my area, 700,000 is not considered that high of a list price, so there are a good number of buyers out there looking in that range... more
Yes and no. You have a contract with a real estate company (it's not with an agent you know) and unless it says in there that either party can cancel then it must be mutually agreed to be terminated or it has to expire. But, you do not have to sign any offers no matter if they are full price or above full price. No one can make you sell your house. There is a possibility the company could sue if they got a full price no contingency offer on the house, but how often does that happen in this market with a house that is not a short sale or bank owned. You could request a price increase up 50%, which they would have to honor if your agreements are written like ours are, and i bet they will let you out of the agreement to list.... more
It is a bit stiff in general, mainly because banks are shying away from doing Jumbo Loans, which right now are at $417,000. So in the 700k range, you would need a buyer who is putting down almost 50% downpayment to get below that limit.
Nonetheless, homes priced correctly, in great condition, in great neighborhoods will always sell quickly, no matter what the price range...assuming you have an experienced Realtor who is devout with follow up on ALL leads.
If it is TRULY priced well - it will sell.
You should not have to update the kitchen -OR offer a credit.
Why not reduce the price further and forgo the credit?

Listings are purchased by buyers represented by Realtors about 90% of the time. That means that if Realtors are not showing your property, they are probably showing other properties. Usually pricing is the issue, not exposure.
However, if you are getting showings and no offers, then pricing again is probably the answer. The rule of thumb is 10-12 showings or one offer in two weeks, or a price adjustment is in order.
One test I use when evaluating how well a listing is being marketed is to put in the address on Google.
I am still amazed how many Realtors fail to syndicate their listings.
Try it.... more
The listing agent must be an aggressive marketer. The days are over when you can sit back with a listing and do nothing to market it and just put it on the MLS. We have been extremely disappointed in our Realtor. Won't use him again, won't recommend. You must have brochures available for the house. Don't just put your sign in the ground. Follow up on every showing. I'm disgusted at this point. Off the market.... more
I'm not a Realtor, so I'm unable to help you with vaule, but have you given thought to keeping the property and renting it out?
