As others have stated the best course of action is to hire a Licensed Electrician and a Licensed Plumber to inspect the systems prior to listing. This will give you the opportunity to address any deficiencies or code issues before your buyer's home inspector checks the home.

Many sales fall through when the buyer feels that there are too many problems with a home. You can avoid the hassle and ensure a quick closing by fixing problems with the mechanical systems before the home is listed. I would also recommend having a Licensed HVAC Contractor inspect the HVAC system too.

Appraiser seldom change their valuation after they submit.

Here are your options:

1) Sell to the buyer at the appraisal amount.

2) Ask the buyer to bring cash to the table (in addition to their loan amount) that way you still sell for $293 or agree to some number in the middle.

3) Tell the buyer they need to change lenders/brokers .... that way the new company would order a fresh appraisal. (If you think a new appraisal would have value to qualify)

4) List home for cash buyers only

Plus, I would negotiate with the Realtor for a discount on his/her rate to close the deal at any amount with this buyer, since the agent will be picking up both sides of the commission split. (Suggesting an original sales price so far off from market price per this appraisal - has cost you delays.)

The platform on Trulia is for real estate agents. Trulia does get information from other sources but you will need to list your home with a realtor for it to be available on Trulia.
