If you sign it ... it would be legal.

Your Realtor has no business in your lease. Your Realtor helps you buy/sell houses .... not rent them. (Unless your Realtor is also affiliated with your Property Management company ... which is a really bad idea.)

Regardless of what you have in your lease ... if you have an exclusive agent agreement in place, your agent may get a piece of any deals you do while under contract.

You'll have to ask your Realtor that question. It's possible his/her MLS doesn't syndicate to Trulia. If it's a brand new listing (in MLS within the last 24-48 hours) it can sometimes take a little while for it to show up on all these different websites. ... more

A buyer's perception of value should be considered, when looking at the potential of buying or selling a home. As an Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR), when I am helping clients to purchase a new home, I try to establish their needs today. Everyone has a different lifestyle to consider. Perhaps you require a quiet office space or your parents visit for months at a time. What you might consider is the perfect house will be different than someone else. If you have school age children we will explore towns with schools that suit thier needs. The location is extremely important, if you are looking forward to resale. Some feel Colonials and Ranches are more valuable than other style homes but, I would be doing an injustice to my clients if I did not show them every property within thier price range. It is human nature to change our minds. Please contact me, if you would like to discuss your options. It would be my pleasure to help you find the home of your dreams.

PUD = Diet Condo. Just kidding.

Planned Unit Developments exhibit many of the characteristics explained in the excellent answers below. What you typically find is that a PUD will be single family (usually detached) dwelling, and will have some manner of HOA dues (home owner's association). Many PUD developments share a common area such as a clubhouse, pool, etc., and often the dwellings are similar in size, type and style.

Hi Yi- I have seen this home and it's bonus is that it has a flipped floor plan and the living spaces are upstairs giving a nice view of the country club lakes. This home is in good condition, but needs cosmetic attention. It was withdrwawn from the market but I will call the owner to see if they are still seeling. thanks for your interest!

Hi Bambi-

To the best of my knowledge, a very successful consumer (owner, buyer and agent) facing site, does not have a For Sale By Owner capability yet. A good question to send to customer service. There are companies that help you list for a fee:, and just added a section for owners wanting to sell on their own.

While the up-front, on paper view shows a savings to the onwer marketing this way; the odds are far greater that you'll will sell in a shorter period of time and for a greater sale price with the services of a Full Time realtor who studies their market day in and day out.

One of the main reasons is that a vast majority of the buyers who tour and purchase properties sold by the owner are "Ebay" buyers who want rock-bottom deals, not the "Ethan Allen" buyers that use realtors to find their home.

If you would like to discuss this in person, feel free to call me or let's set-up a time to chat.

Question was asked 4 years ago! With the answer still being the same.

Details people... details. 4 years ago.

Answering 4 year old questions make the agent appear to be out of touch and does not pay attention to details! Who wants to work with an agent that answers a question from 4 years ago like it was yesterday, when the question has been answered numerous times correctly.

I’m reading, Does not pay attention to details and is a little redundant,

just say'in...
