Trulia does not support For Sale By Owner listings. All listings on Trulia are generated by the listing Real estate agent; Trulia scans the MLS data base and posts that information to their web site. If you have your home listed through a licensed Realtor then your listing should appear on Trulia within 72 hours after going live in the MLS system ... more

Averages can be manipulated to tell anyone what they want to hear. No home is average to me. Some are overpriced, some are underprices. Some are nice and some are not. Some sellers are desperate and some don't care. Each is unique, so I tend to ignore all stats. ... more

The best way to find out the going real estate commission rate is to put the Realtor fees on the open market and let the Agents bid your commission rate. Commission fees are negotiable and can vary by zip code. We find the best way to compare commission fees is to reverse-auction them. That is why we created; a free service for Sellers who can invite agents to submit their marketing plan and commission structure. It is a patent pending process that is saving Sellers thousands.

It is completely free to the Seller and there is no obligation for the Seller to pick the lowest bid or any bid. The whole time the Seller remains anonymous as we never publish your street address or contact information. Sellers can sit back and review marketing plans, commission bids, ratings and reviews. A big win for the Seller. After all, Agents are not charged to register or bid and they have no obligation to bid. Give it a try:

Hello Ray,

If you have not yet placed your home on the market, I would suggest it would be wise to list it for sale, initially. You can always lease it later. Most importantly, finding a real estate professional you trust is vital. Then, strong marketing skills designed to leverage all marketing avenues with each other places many more advantages in your favor. There are buyers looking for good examples in each price point. The end of your question, ' this market', is important. That would depend on your community comps and other questions. Contact me if you would like a complimentary CMA, and pop over for some feedback. Take a look at the article below, then scroll for subsequent posts in the series, MarketWatch: Real Estate Indiana - Get It Sold! Marketing Your Home In the 21st Century. ... more

Eric Karrfalt answered:
No is the short answer. In general, lets say evey sale in your community has finished basements. Lets say they sell for $250k, You paid $250k for your home, finished your basement, and want $275k. All things being equal, you are at a big disadvantage if price is the only object. What I'm trying to demonstrate is that improvements such as your basement remodel derive value from the market, not a standard return on what was spent. You need to look at the a bigger picture of your project such as sq/ft finished , quality of work, quality of materials used, custom ammenities, etc. Then compare it to the general real estate pricing for homes like yours in Carmel, then to sales of similar homes in your community. Generally speaking, I can demonstrate an increased value, as additional finished sq/ft almost always raises your price. I have clients who have lost 50% and others who have gained 20% over their cost, all depending on the cost of their project and how it compaired the competition. So there is no hard and fast rule. I would say 70% ROI is fair but I would watch how you use that figure. Hope this helps gain perspective. -Eric ... more
