Amelia Robinette answered:
why do you care what Trulia says about the property?

trulia isn't a real estate agent or agency - it's an advertising site that aggregates data from multiple sources. it's probably pulling from tax records.

you'll need to go to the source in order for this public advertising site to publish correct info. go to your local jurisdictions tax record office to get it corrected if it's important to you. most jurisdictions base annual taxes on sq footage, so when you get that changed/corrected, you may be looking at a higher tax bill.

This is the q and a section so unlikely trulia service will see your post. First it takes 48-72 hours for a listing to go live or public once you post. To reach service, scroll to the bottom right of page and click on help center ... more

Yes, you can. FHA allow this type of setup as long as you are qualified to do the repairs and can follow the timeline. For more details about 203k loan, visit

Bill Eckler answered:
A buyer's level of motivation knows no's all about their immediate needs. Granted, there are periods during which there is greater buyer interest. For example, in the northeast it's during the warmer months while in the deep south it's during the winter.

With the anticipated increase in interest rates, the number of motivated buyers is likely going to decrease, creating a slower overall selling period. If this is indeed the case, taking advantage of the present market may be your best avenue.

Good luck,

What does your contract say? If it is not clear to you, you need to consult an attorney. In TN if the buyer defaults, the seller gets the earnest money. There is no percentage limit on the amount that is refunded. ... more

If you have a specific local area you are looking at, then take the advice given. However, if you're looking to get an idea of a market or several markets/neighborhoods, the paid lists might be the way to go, only to save you hours of time gathering info from multiple banks, county clerks, courthouses, agent lists, etc etc. Just a timesaver to start off.

Hope that's a helpful way of looking at it, time is money!

Becky Cope English answered:
Certainly! If you have an agent, your agent can make inquiry on what the contingencies are in place. It could be financing, home inspection or many other things. For example, the buyer may have a house to sell. In that case, the owner may want to accept back-up offers. If the first offer goes away, the back-up offer moves to first position. It's always worth a try. Also consider that buying a foreclosure takes a lot of patience. Good luck! ... more

Linda Anderson answered:
I think I would to because most people do that. I have lost properties for clients by not telling them to bid above asking price. This sounds like a HUD property and if they are decent properties they go fast. Even the worst properties sell but takes awhile. I think it is wise to bid higher if the property is worth it. ... more
