Some sellers may need to sell for various reasons. However, as a buyer, current home prices provide more choices. When spring rolls around, you may see a change in home values.

I doubt there is a site that compiles this data. The electric company would not be looking at the phone company's bills or the cable tv bill to keep track of such things. The amount of water will vary if there are 2 of you in the house or 42 of you, same with the amount of electricity you use.

You can ask your Realtor to ask the seller for their costs.

NONE of them 'work' unless you have defined the purpose they are to fill AND you are supporting the infrastructue to make that website visiable.
How will you know if that website is successful?
1. impressions
2. visits
3. interaction
4. distrubtion
5. Friends
6. Cleint management
7. Providing home search/resources
8. Community news/support
9. Validation
10. Your mother likes it
Evently you will realize the only measure is the number of appointments generated from the website.
Who do you want to have an appointment with? The answer to this question dictates what you should do and the care and feeding involved.
You will realize you need three websites.
1. Brown and Foster
2. All about Cathy
3. Social
And a whole bunch of "Squeeze" pages.
The first three are essential to the latter.

Summary: If you don't know what needs to be done you will be looking for a website. If you have defined your busienss and strategy, you will be seeking ways to feed and nurture your squeeze pages.

Best of success to you,

I really like Trulia and not so much with Zillow. You just have to really figure out what will work in your area. Trulia may be great in New York but is it great in Virginia? Do some market research of your own and come to a conclusion. If you ask this question on Zillow, everyone on Zillow will tell you Zillow is better than Trulia... ... more

Contact me and i will look the home up and see what the bank is doing with the home. I can look at the mortgage history and see what a good offer would be. I can look at the auction company that is selling the home and advise you of their normal procedures.

A few updates to this post 2 years later. I live in this neighborhood and every neighbor who is trying to sell is in an extremely tough spot as of this writing. The Gulls Quay example below is an extreme case of how this whole neighborhood is doing. However, if you are not trying to sell, this is one of the nicest places in Virginia Beach.

4903 never sold

4840 sold on 12-18-09 for $411 sq/ft $1,150,000 vs $500 $1,400,000

4832 is still for sale 2 years later for $1,290,000 $370 sq/ft vs $531 $1,850,000

4715 sold on 10-08-09 for $216 sq/ft $417,350 vs $356 $689,216

4484 not sure

4450 Gulls Quay sold for $1,330,000.00 on 6/18/2007. It's current property tax value is $925,700 and the one sitting next to it is for sale for $750,000.

Lots of different stuff going on in the market, all bad for sellers or bubble buyers. One given is that beach front property will always be high cost.
