Most people have the common decency to not park directly in front of a house. Most renters of homes, do not realize that they rent the inside of the home and the outside is not theirs to direct orders. They are tax payers, however, they are not property tax payers. The homeowners are the ones who pay for the up keep of the city, and the renters are only paying money to rent a space. Their pay-check taxes do not pay for the right to dictate who parks in front of your home. Any home owner would respect a neighbors space and privacy. After shelling out property tax payments every year to live on a well kept property, "that is expected from the city to be kept well"; The last thing a homeowner wants is a free-loader parking in front of their house. In your case, is it legal for them to park there? Yes, it is. Should they have the common decency to not park there? Yes! they should. ... more

Definitely no laminates! When I look at a house with laminate flooring I immediately start calculating how much it's going to cost to rip it out and replace with hardwood (tile in kitchen and bath). Hardwood is not only more durable and attractive, but also not as likely to be toxic. ... more

You need some landscaping around the house for it to show well. Don't go to much expense though, 2/3 of my buyers replaced the landscaping to their own taste. They painted the house as well. ... more

Did you know you can manually edit your listing and upload your own photos? Also, keep in mind that MLS feeds can sometimes take a day or two to populate these websites.

James Booth asked:
I submitted new pictures with that listing on zillow 4 days ago. The picture you have is years old, inaccurate, unflattering and could turn off people who would otherwise be interested…

Hi,

I apologize if the image associated with your property page caused you any inconvenience and I am happy to help in any way I can. Please be advised the image you are seeing is provided to us from Google images of which we do not have the ability to edit or remove. My recommendation would be to contact Google to request they blur out your photo and home photo. Please feel free to use these steps:

How to get your property blurred:
1. On your Trulia Property Page, click 'View Map'.
2. Click 'Street View'.
3. Click 'Report a problem' found on the bottom right of the photo.
4. Fill out the form.
5. Click Submit.

Hopefully this information is helpful.


Thank you for using Trulia!

Please be assured if you are intending to sell your home in the future, you (or your agent if you choose to use one), will have the ability to create a new listing with new photos, and submit the listing to Trulia.

The new listing will override the off market property page with the Google image photo.

I hope this information is helpful

follow up:

also you can't just "do whatever" you want with your property. You still have to follow city laws that keep everyone safe.

You can't just let your property turn into a garbage dump, causing smells, rats, visual eye sores, and not expect someone to complain.

Basic manners and just personal hygiene should also be part of your daily lifestyle.
