This may be something you want to contact Trulia with directly, as I am not sure if there is even an option to remove your home from the website.

To advertise a listing on Trulia, you must be a licensed Realtor. Anyone can browse to see what is selling, but you would need a realtor to advertise it for you. Hope this helps

Yes and no, which area and what lot? You have 4 questions in the one question. Crawl or basement would depend on what lot and which area. For example on a rolling lot you can have a walkout basement. Love to help you work thru it and list your current home if any. You'll need an agent for the documents and to negotiate with the builder- I can write in many extras and know the builders hot button for getting you those extras.
Give me a call on my "sell" phone: 586-246-3421

After a Short Sale consider buying in India, so otherwise Rent it.

Hi Barnes, you do not tell us if you are working with an agent. If you are, good for you. You now have access to some of the greatest information in the world. Also, if you are working with an agent, more than likely, they want to advise you correctly. If you were working with me, I would have you do the following: Look at at least ten to 15 homes in the near vicinity of the one you want to buy. Look 50-100k higher and 50k lower. You will be able to rate your homes approximate ASKING price value in just a trip or two. Once you have that, look at the sales in the last month, two months, three months or even six months ago. You want to look at enough to figure out what the current market is. If none have sold in the last month, then extend the search back until you get a decent data base. Compare plums to plums. If you are still nervous, then check out some of the contingent and pending homes because these will be sales in progress you can bounce against your home. Keep in mind, the list agents on these homes will not likely tell you what the offer was for, but, it will give you an idea of what asking price is selling and how those compare to the one you want to buy.

If you are working without an agent, you have a lot of work in front of you. If you are buying a FSBO, I suggest you hook up with an agent as most FSBO's will pay a commission and you will be in a much better situation.

If all else fails, go to a title company and pay them to do a quic search for the neighborhood you are looking at. Dave Atherton, Deer Park (Spokane area) Washington.

Hi Barnes, If you do not have an agent working as your "buyers agent" on your behalf; you need one. Keep in mind that the seller pays the buyers agent and you get representation. The buyers agent does there research on the homes that have sold in the same sub and the 1 mile radius in the past 6 months and is simular in square footage, style and updates. Then you are advised of a good price for the offer.
I work as a buyers agent. If you ment that you have seen the home with another agent, then you must follow thru with that agent as another agent can not help you with that home once you have seen it. You would enter into a buyers agency with an agent to represent you before you look at the homes. If you have an agent, then let this professional quide you. Thank you, Dianne Mitchell
