Since you are the listing agent, you should be able to do this yourself! FYI -- nobody here on this Q & A forum can help you. Nor can Trulia. They just pull listings from the MLS through IDX feeds. You need to figure out where the incorrect photo was placed originally (probably your MLS?) and fix it there. ... more

No. It may not cause it to sell anyway.
A multi-faceted marketing campaign is the key to getting a fair price for your property.

It would not count as a bedroom the way the Plainfield area MLS counts. It has to be closed off from the other area. It may be worth putting a door on to count it and to sell for more.

Many times the biggest issue can be price. If you're getting no showings in todays market, you're probably too high. If you're getting showings and no offers you're probably a little too high.
Location and condition effect the property price and a detailed market analysis of previous sales in the area should be able to help you and your broker set the price accordingly.
Buyers are educated with all of the resources online and very fickle. Now is a great time to be selling your home as in our area, as there is a shortage of inventory.
Hope this helps.

I have found that CONSUMER ACTION is an excellent resource for objective advice on all things credit related. You'll find free and sincere advice on everything from settling collection accounts to rebuilding credit to building credit from scratch on their website. http://www.consumer-action.org/

The best way to buy a home is to have a decent credit history combined with sufficient Income and Assets for a home purchase.

The best way to have a decent credit history is to settle negative outstanding obligations and pay all your bills on time for at least two years.

I agree with Alan from Evanston.

First impressions are the most important when trying to catch a buyers attention. As you know, Trulia can find many homes in a general area in one fast search. If you do not have photos, or in your case have very limited, unappealing photos, then the buyer will make one simple click onto the next result and you have lost any chance of following on to a showing. Pictures should be the best of what you have to offer. ... more

Dear Denise,
Why can't you get out? Almost every contract to buy has a mortgage contingency which allows you out of the contract if you are unable to obtain financing. If the home does not appraise for the contract price, you will likely not be able to get financing and any earnest money should be returned to you. However, keep in mind each case is different and builders often write contracts that are favorable to them. If you are buying in Plainfield you should have a real estate attorney to help you through the legal issues. This may not be common where you currently live, but is the rule for our real estate market.
As far as believing the appraisal, I have found that they usually come back very close to the contract price.

I am familiar with prices in Plainfield and may be able to assist you further. Feel free to contact me.
