Thank you for contacting us regarding the erroneous foreclosure status on this property page. I apologize we have false foreclosure information listed on our home details page. This data is provided to us from Zillow foreclosures and we currently do not have the ability to edit or remove the information that they are sending us.

Please be advised that I have created a ticket request to remove the Foreclosure status of your property from their site. Once the status is removed from Zillow, it will automatically update to Trulia after 24-48 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

This is very old question but I'll add my thoughts. I've been exclusive buyer's agent for 21 years....the vast, vast, majority of real estate agents are ethical people. But brokerages keep their lights on by hiring agents and charging big desk fees and commission splits. Most don't care who they hire as long as they can pay the monthly fee. And since it's not that hard to get a real estate license, a lot of unqualified people become agents.

When you want to BUY without getting ripped off, hire an Exclusive Buyer Agent to represent you. EBAs represent homebuyers only so there is no conflict of interest to jeopardize your negotiating position. Visit for a referral.

We are a real estate search engine so we don't represent the homes found on our site. Please follow these steps to begin your home search:

1. Click the 'Rent' tab at the top of our homepage.
2. Enter your desired city and state in the search bar and hit Enter.
3. Click 'Max Price' to select what your highest price would be to pay for a home. Click 'Min Price' to set the lowest price you would pay.
4. Select your preferred property type, square footage, allowed pets, etc.
5. Click the orange 'Done' button.

This will begin to pull up listings that are more tailored to what you are looking for.

In the Sacramento area most agents don't handle rentals as they are not a part of our mls so there isn't a centralized place to search for rentals and the agents would just be searching through multiple sites like you would. I know of a few property management companies you can contact if you'd like. ... more

Have your agent correct it. Trulia isn't a brokerage and doesn't have access to our MLS. Your agent would either need to manually post/edit the information posted on Trulia/Zillow or they would need to use a 3rd party service to syndicate the listing to Trulia/Zillow. If you agent has trouble they can reach out to their broker or office admin for assistance. ... more

It depends on what your definition of cosmetic repair is and how big your standard home is. Some area's your standard home is 2000 sq-ft while others the standard home is 1000 sq-ft. Some investors calculate rehab cost as anywhere from $20-$40 per sq-ft of the home. ... more

It depends the best thing to do is to consult a local real estate agent.

In some cases making some minor repairs will help increase the value of your home or just make it more appealing and thus make it easier to sell however in other cases the return on investment simply won't be there especially when hiring professionals so you may just be better giving the buyer a small discount or credit IF needed and saving yourself the trouble. Again this is where a local real estate agent can come in helpful as they can provide comparables and show the statistics of similar homes and what they are selling for based on condition.

Paint is almost always a good idea but rather than changing carpet maybe just have it cleaned, there are numerous other ways you can spruce up the place a realtor can usually provide a checklist or even a quick google search can give you some ideas even if you are not DIY type.

NOTE: In some cases certain repairs may be required by the lender depending on the loan program so you might even want to speak to a local lender that is either recommended by your realtor, your past loan office or if you would like a recommendation I know several good loan officers in your area.

Currently I only offer loans in Florida.

Hi Nicole,

Our local area has these from time to time. There are also seller financed properties in our MLS as well sometimes.

Kind regards,
