Ask your realtor to remove all marketing from the internet. Just removing it from the MLS is not enough. Realtors have the tools to delete photos from websites. If your realtor refuses, talk to the Office Manager or Broker in Charge. ... more

Did you get you situation resolved with your realtor? This sounds like a communication issue. His job is to sell your home and if a buyer without an agent is interested to view the home then he should be showing the buyer your home. What probably needs to be done here is for him to discuss with you that the buyer requested a contractor to look over the upgrades and cost. Then it's up to you to let the contractor in now or after an offer. Regardless of your choice, buyer may walk away and decide not to make an offer or terminate the offer (contract). ... more

This is the q and a sections, it is unlikely Trulia customer service will see your post. You can edit your own listings as Trulia does not edit listings.

I would suggest that you hire a local realtor to assist you and give you comps for your condo.

I hope that makes sense!

I own a home and have been trying to edit details. However, I never got the email to confirm. The Google map photo of my house, shown on your site, is NOT my house--it's the house…

I agree with Amelia below. I would suggest looking into old paper document. Also it is probably best that your friend is the one making the phone call.

First of all, I'm sorry you had such a poor experience with another agent. A lot of builders partner with agents to get your house sold. Unfortunately, with that comes not much of an experience at times and an agent who is rushing to get your home sold without spending the time and effort to actually get it sold!

To answer your questions. 1) Having your home on the market last fall will definitely not hurt your chances of putting your house on the market now. After 90 days off the market the days on market counter resets. Not to mention if I was your agent, I'd be able to stand behind my pricing of your home. Every agent knows there are unfortunately bad agents out there. 2) No! Regardless of what it was listed for then, it will not hurt it now. I've actually worked with several clients who had the same situation. They were buying a home through a builder and the agent the builder set them with under priced there home the first go round, and didn't market it. All I have done is explain the situation to the agent who calls to inquire about the home (with your permission) and that clears it up. It's as simple as that.

I am a real estate agent who works the Taylor area and would love the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your home further. I always include professional photos, as well as open houses. It is my job to ensure that your real estate goals become a reality. Call me! 5128451084

Agree with Dan. Do have a title company involved and a realtor help for the contract.

Price is based on location, condition and amenities. it's very difficult to answer your question with out actuality seeing your house. The bigger question is what you will meet with a sale. In the years you have been there you are paying the interest on your mortgage with out touching much of the principle. What you gain in sales
price will most likely be erased by fees you have and will pay.

Please let me show you what I know are facts that answer your question honestly per your request from a market report released 8-8-13 from WCAOR "This July, for the first time in real estate history, more than 1,000 homes were sold in Williamson County in a single month. This represents a 30% increase over the number of homes sold in July of 2012, according to a market report released today by the Williamson County Association of REALTORS." I wanted to make sure the information I gave you was supported by the market source in our area to lay a foundation for the truth. I hope this helps cfalconc41! ... more

Laura Rosales answered:
Hi Jennifer - I just came across your question and wanted to take a moment to respond.
Trulia (as well as all other home search sites) pulls data from the area MLS that Real Estate professionals subscribe to through their local board of Realtors. Realtors gather data from sources for the property features, descriptions, school information, neighborhood info as well as details regarding upgrades. They also add photo's that are taken of the property. All of these items have guidelines that agents must meet. I am not answering your question to ask for your business (but would welcome you contacting me if you would like) - I am responding to give advise and a few things to think about when you are wanting to sell your home:
1- How much will you ask for your home? (do you know what your home will appraise for and howthe sales price can effect someone getting a loan to buy your home)
2-How will people get in to see your home?
3-Will you know if a prospective buyer is qualified for a loan and has the ability to purchase your home?
4-Will a Realtor bring buyers to see your home - not knowing if you will pay a commission for the service they are providing to their buyer?
5-Who will write up the purchase contract? Collect the Earnest Money?
All items in a Real Estate Listing agreement are negotiable. There have been times when I have adjusted my commission agreement when I help a client sell a home because I am also helping them purchase one. Talk with a few Realtors before you spend countless hours trying to save money - You will find that most Realtors feel so passionately about helping their clients that they are willing to do what it takes make your dream a reality. Best wishes! Laura Rosales-Realtor

It could vary $2000, plus or minus, depending upon which Month the Escrow Closes.
It could vary $1000, plus or minus, depending upon the Title Company's fees.
It could vary $5000, depending upon what you negotiated with the Buyers.
Look at your HUD1.

Edith Karoline Jasser answered:
Well, this would really not the first time this happens.

First of all our advice or suggestions here cannot be very exact and detailed simply because
we do not know the home and we do not know the sales contract, nor the disclosures connect to such contract.

A few questions though for you,
a) did you have an inspection and if so did the inspector see any problem?
what exactly does the inspection report say
b) what does it say in the disclosure by the seller, did they have problems, did they live themselves
in the home etc. etc.

c) Did you buy the home in as is condition?

So since we do not know any of the answers hard to tell what your situation may be.

d) Does you home insurance cover water damage?

And YES you do need to talk to a local real estate attorney, I think it will be simple if you go to
google and you google for real estate attorneys in your area, I am sure several will turn up.
or use this link to find a real estate attorney near you this way

Most Sincerely yours,

Carla Pennington answered:
As others have commented, the real estate agents only charge a commission. It typically runs in the neighborhood of 6% although that can vary. I use a rule of thumb of about 8% of the sales price to cover the Realtor's commission plus the other fees and expenses typically paid by the sellers such as the title policy, prorated taxes, survey, a home warranty, home owners association transfer fee, as well as some other small miscellaneous fees charged by the title company. It's only a ball park estimate. You or your Realtor can get more accurate estimate from a title company.

(I just noticed the date on this question, but someone might still find the answer valuable. Since I've typed it out, I'll post it anyway!)
