Trulia scrapes some of it's information from other sites, did you list it somewhere else? Did someone else list it without your permission? Trulia should, but I don't know if they do, list the sources for their data. Try a google search of the address and see what sites it is listed on and contact them for help. ... more

I would be shocked if that was legal. That seems like a major invasion of personal space. I wouldn't trust anybody with such intimate access to my security system. Did you resolve this yet? ... more

In the last 3 months there has been 106 sales for a total of 1956 days or an average of 18 3/4 days per listing. One was sold before it was put on the MLS. The longest ones were 428 dayis-sold $150,000 below original list price, 154 days-sold $100,000 below original list price, 141 days-sold sold $1,100,000 (yes one million one hundred dollars) below list price, 130 days-property had unpermitted additions/alternations, was landlock, and had no parking.

When looking at days on the market on the mls, there are two counters-one DOM and the other is COM. If a seller relist a property within a given period of time, the MLS continues to count the day and that counter is COM. The DOM counter is just for the current listing.

If I can help you, further please call me 310-714-0200 "The Old Pro"

Greg Geilman answered:
I you are asking if an appraiser can informally comment, the answer would be yes provided that you had that type of relationship, and did not wish to actually hire an additionally appraiser for a second opinion. Normally, however, that would only occur in the instance of a review appraiser, hired by the lender to specifically review the work of another appraiser, either with a field review, where they actually go out to the property or a desk review where they just review the numbers. ... more

I would advise your seller not to make the fatal mistake of overpricing their condo and to read the article I have linked below.

Kaye: Prices haven't plunged--and in fact, are up 1.7 percent year over year. But much of that increase is due to a higher rise in the $1+million homes--which kind of skews the percentages for all. Average days on market for North Coastal San Diego County is 77, with homes selling at an average 94.4 percent of list price. In short, we have a stable buyer's market. If I can be of any assistance to your clients, please give me a call at 760-402-9101 or 877-818-8197. ... more
