To start, I would like to note that the Trulia estimate is an estimate derived from our proprietary algorithm. Our estimates use a ton of info, including recent sales of similar homes and home facts like number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage, and more to provide insight into what a home is worth. This data is compiled from public records and other sources for counties across the US. Please know that we do not intend for the estimate to replace a comparative market analysis as they can take into account market intricacies that the Trulia Estimate cannot. The Trulia Estimate is really meant to be a starting point in determining a home’s value and is not an official appraisal. To learn more about the Trulia estimate, we encourage our users to follow this link:

Please also note that we do not directly edit or remove Trulia estimates. While we monitor customer feedback for systematic issues with the algorithm, we do not change individual estimates in response to customer feedback. We understand however, that some homes may be unique in ways that are not well captured by existing data. To provide more information on your estimate, we encourage you to claim your home and update its facts if you notice any information is outdated.

Updates to your home facts will be factored into your home's Trulia estimate, however, if the updates are not significant enough to impact the home's value, your estimate may not change.

If you're looking for a precise value for your home, we recommend you talk to a real estate professional.

One thing to consider is that when you do put your home on the market, the Trulia estimate will disappear as it is a feature only available for off market properties.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Hi tfrack_ops,
The cost of building homes with vary depending on the finish work and upgrades. But the following link maybe helpful to get a ball park. The best way to find this out would be to talk with local builders. I am a Realtor who is married to a builder so I have some inside information. We have built a home in Easton and the know the ins and outs of the process. I have been a Realtor in Easton for over 20 years. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Be mindful that third party sites such as this acquire information from various sources, therefore if the feeding source doesn't update, inaccuracies can and do exit; so relying on any online valuations is really not a good idea. If you would like the information changed you can try contacting customer service directly As you may have already know, realistic valuations occur when performed by any local agent(s) or licensed appraisers..... ... more

Minna Reid answered:
It will go on your credit whether you do a quit-claim or not. If you quit claim you will only lose any control you had on the property.
You may try to short sell the property or perhaps seek some alternative workout to avoid the foreclosure and a possible deficiency judgement. Call an attorney for your legal options. ... more

it's correct in public records, wrong on trulia. There were two sales on the same day for $130,000, due to it being two owners. Trulia shows the house sold for $130,000 - not the $260,000 sale. ... more
