Is your home listed in the MLS by an agent? That's where Trulia picks up the info. It can sometimes take up to 72 hrs for it to update.

Your agent may need to log into their account to claim the listing and update it. ... more

Hi Michelle,

As far as I know, it is not the entire state of Maryland, but definitely Frederick County which allows pit bulls and mixes. Other counties in Maryland, such as Prince Georges, don't allow pit bulls at all and even make tenants agree in their leases that they will not have pit bulls.

It's a good idea to consult with the county/city gov't offices to determine whether pit bulls are allowed in the area you are planning to relocate to.

You will need to discuss the issue first with your lender. Depending, on the situation there are instances that the banks have allowed short sales in similar scenarios. Hard to say without knowing more. ... more

As several agents have suggested below,

http://www.oag.state.md.us/Consumer/landlordTenantPDF.pdf

Has most of the information you need. You do NOT need a permit to rent out your house in Frederick, MD.

I would also call the local courthouse and/or local association of Realtors. This would be the Frederick City Courthouse off of West Patrick St and FCAR (Frederick County Association of Realtors) of off route 85. Doesn't hurt to call a local brokerage or agent too for more information.

All the best,

Brock

You should definitely check the Landlord/Tenant Laws for your area because if you don't have a signed lease, your landlord may not be required to do a formal eviction. While you may feel not being required to sign a lease is a good thing because you aren't bound to anything, leases are used to protect the rights of both the landlord and the tenant. ... more

Jessica Hood & Laura Roskelly answered:
The repair clause is pretty common in our area but usually comes with a cap/deductible which is normally $100. If anything needs replacement that should be the Landlord's cost (per our standard lease agreement), but anything the two parties mutually agree to just needs to be put in writing. ... more

The market has changed since this question was posted. Many of my recent buyers understand that when they take a loss on there sale, they will get a better savings in there move up. Hopefully that is the case for you.

Hello Jim,

Determining the value of your home is very specific. Is this for Refinance, for Listing for Sale or to justify the Tax Rate? Often Home Owners want a different number based on which reason this is used. You can use sites such as Zillow and Trulia for ranges although until an agent sees it in person, it would be a estimate. Call a Licensed REALTOR® to get a Competitive Market Analysis which would help you price your home vs the market. Although what you would really need to "Value" your home is an appraisal. I strongly recommend Wayne Six of Six and Associates. Some agents are offering to pay for an Appraisal for there Sellers at Closing when a Seller does a formal Appraisal to price the property correctly.

My heart breaks for you and I wish I had a solution. However, I would think that you could start with a housing assistance program. Or perhaps there is some fabulous Landlord that will read this and bless you with a better place to live. Best of luck. ... more

Hi Jim
As others have said, in order to help you determine market value of your home, we would need an address.
Some areas in Frederick seem to have plateaued for the moment. Probably because the short sales and foreclosures are gone...at least for now. You may be in such a neighborhood.
As with everyone else, I am happy to help you determine the current value. Just let me know if you would like our help
Maureen
