Neither! White is hard to cover over darker colors. First you need to prime the walls with Kiltz or 123primer. Depending on how old the paint is, it may be oil based paint. You can check for oil based paint (latex paint will not stick to oil it bubbles and peels of) if the walls are stained or oil base use oil based Kiltz. If you selling paint with Behr Pro in the back isle of the Home Depot paint section. This paint was made by Kiltz and relabled Behr. The paint for contractors and is value priced and usually covers in 1-2 coats. Go with a Sherwin Williams color code like gobe desert. The is a good netural color which is appealing to most people, covers good and will sell your house quickly. ... more

Zillow has purchased Trulia and will automatically post on both. I would suggest posting your phone number in the comments not just the side. Good luck if you are still selling.

You need to call your attorney and discuss the MATERIAL loss you have suffered. Your attorney can then recover such loss from the responsible parties. The only option you really have is to make sure you advise everyone you know to not use Zillow or Trulia for real estate purposes. They are suitable for entertainment purposes only. Friends won't let their friends be deceived. There exist more significant issues regarding your homes data that could prove more persuasive for your attorney's use. Look into the hazard and peril issue. ... more

If you are quoting heated square footage, but other "savvy" sellers are using "public record" square footage, then they are getting a HUGE advantage in the "cost per square foot" and thus much higher rankings in the various real estate websites out there! It is just not fair! And since there doesn't appear to be a correct answer to the question, why not use the public record figures from the Tax Digest and boost your odds of selling at a better price! ... more

Save yourself some money. Try this first:
Get a CERTIFIED copy of the Court Order which releases the Bond, send a copy of it and whatever other documents with a letter to the Bonding Company requesting that they release the lien.
Hope this helps and of course don't hesitate to call or text me at 770-377-5924. Best Wishes, Angela

Hello Ann,
Most likely it is because when it pulled from the MLS's it did not have a photo at the time they listed it. So, that's how it went it Trulia. I don't believe Trulia goes back to pull newer pics or info. The agent must enter new info or pics manually on Trulia after the initial listing. I hear and see that problem alot.
Also, be sure that if/when you reduce your price that your agent comes here to enter it manually otherwise I don't believe it will update to the new price. I specialize in the 30115 area and see that all the time especially in that zip code.
