Scott Godzyk answered:
Trulia does not list or sell homes. It is simply a site that accepts ads for homes for sale. If you are selling it on your own, it should not even be posted as only homes listed with a licensed agent can be posted on Trulia. If you had an agent place the home for sale, they need to simply edit it ... more

Apparently you are an agent. Why aren't you asking people at your firm for help?

To hopefully give you an idea by zip code in Visalia, I did the same research for each zip code. I looked at all homes sold from February 1, 2012, up to $300,000, not including new construction. This is what I found. For zip 93277, 62 homes sold, the average days on the market (DOM) was 49, the average price per square foot was $76.16, and the average price was $120,305. For 93292, there were 56 homes sold, average 43 DOM, average price per s.f. was $77.05 and the average price was $128,108. For area code 93291, 64 homes sold, average 34 DOM, average price per s.f. was $77.78 and the average price home sale was $149,822. However, within each zip code, you have different criteria to consider and this is just using the zip code and all sales, regardless of size, neighborhood, condition. If you would like more information or specific details, you can always email me directly and I would be happy to give you the information you need. Good Luck ... more

Karen Dean answered:
When interviewing agents to assist you with short sales you want to make sure you find an agent that has experience handling short sale transactions. Short sales are in many ways different than traditional and foreclosure sales. The agent must be willing to contact the bank on a weekly basis and have exceptional negotiating skills and know how to work with the banks and know what the banks are looking for before getting started with the process. A successful Short sale agent will be have first hand knowledge the guidelines acceptable depending on the different types of loans and different banks involved.

First and foremost the Realtor should should know the short sale market and be able to price the home correctly.
Many times an inexperienced agent, new to the short sale process will price the home too low, the seller will accept the offer, it will get sent to the bank and after 3 months time has passed by the bank rejects the offer because it was not at market value and the buyer walks, not being able to qualify for the actual value the home should have sold for originally.

I am a licensed Realtor in Visalia since 1999. I have been successfully listing and closing short sale properties since 2007. I would be happy to discuss the process with you further and explain in more detail the pros and cons and give you all the information you need to make an informed decision. My number is 559-804-1963 or you can email me at You can also find me on facebook under Karen Dean-Realtor

I am here to assist you in anyway that I can.

Hi Rebecca,
Did you use a REALTOR?
Did you use an agent that believes in marketing your property all over the place online?
