You can't rely on Trulia for accurate information. Trulia is an advertising website. Agents know the facts! To get the facts, contact a local agent - by using the tab at the top of the page.

Good luck!

Stage and fix up the house so it is perfect, take great photographs, make a great brochure, get a 1 year home warranty, hold open houses, find out what buyers do not like about it so you can correct it, tell thousands of people about it, negotiate so you do not lose your buyer and price it right at the start. ... more

All signs are that yes - it will be similar to last year. The banks are putting properties out at a small quantity at a time to avoid crashing the market and artificially increases prices. If more sellers get in the market, that could change.

Buyers in multiple offers all the time is not the best way. I agree. We need more inventory.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your possibilities of renting a home. There are options and you make the final decision. I would also like to know what your plans are since your lender increased your payment? Have you considered getting the property on the market? Good luck what ever you decide but contacting me to discuss it more may prove to be very helpful.

Sorry to hear about that. This market is making things difficult for people.

2 years is minimum from when the house closed and bank released your note. In the meantime, you need to get your credit and everything else in place to get back on track.

I sell in that area and I help my clients get back on track at no cost, so they are ready to go. Please feel free to call me for some free advice on how to get back to start.

It is a GREAT time to be a buyer! Definitely talk to a lender to determine your options. Ask them about programs that might be available that can help with down payment.
I can recommend First Mortgage, Tim Trauscht is great to work with and if your score needs to go up a bit he can direct you on how to get up to where you want to be. 708-359-5169.

I would also suggest you find a real estate agent. It can take months to find just the right house. then at least 30 days to close after you are under contract. if you happen to put in an offer on a Short Sale, it can take many months to get to the closing table.

check out my website if you would like to start browsing current listings in your areas of interest, no cost, no obligation just current information.

when you are ready to talk to realtors, talk to 2 or 3. Ask questions - how long have they been in the business, are they full time, are they primarily a buyer's or seller's agent, where are they located, etc. Treat finding a realtor like a job interview, you want to find someone that you feel comfortable with because you will be spending a lot of time with your agent :)

contact me if you have questions

Hi Karen,

Thank you for your follow-up post. I'm not sure exactly how iHouse's system works but I believe they should be able to update the information they include in the data feed they send to us. If they are grabbing the listing information from an MLS feed then it doesn't seem that they should be sending us an old photo and out-dated information - unless your listing agent needs to update that information.

If I were in your situation I might contact iHouse directly for assistance. They should be able to let you know how their feed works and what needs to be done to make sure your listing information is current. You can find their contact information via the link below.

I hope this helps you. Best of luck, and please feel free to contact me directly if you need further assistance.

Have a good weekend!
