When your house isn't actively for sale, Trulia just pulls random data from different sources. It's not always going to be wright. When you actually list your house for sale with an agent, the listing data feeds over here and writes over the public information Trulia currently has posted.

Also, right or wrong, not one buyer cares what you paid for your house. That number means nothing to a buyer.

You need to look at the other sales in your complex and neighborhood. 100 days may be 'normal'.

If other similar units are selling more quickly, try to figure out what about them was more attractive than your listing. Price is an obvious factor, but there are others to look at.

View? Colors not neutral? Unprofessional photos? Not enough photos? Is your agent actively marketing the property, or just letting it sit on the MLS waiting for a buyer? Are you having open houses at the same time the other units are open? I personally love doing Mega Open houses for condos and I make sure I'm the agent with the most signs and balloons to generate more traffic.

Video tours are great tools to market and post on social media. Are you posting on your social media? is your agent also posting the listing in every possible outlet?

Have your agent call the other agents who have sold units and ask them what they're doing and who they marketed to to get the buyers.

No need to give up, just make some tweaks and changes. I've attached a link to a booklet about assessing market value that may give you a bit more helpful info.

Best of luck!

If your home is listed for sale, you need to contact your REALTOR to make the necessary changes. It's possible that this site is pulling data from public records, or an older listing. How are people getting your phone number? ... more

I agree that 24 hours is usually sufficient time for an offer...after it has been communicated.

I would say sleep on it, get back within 24 hours but don't rush either. Generally the day after you were presented the offer make your decision and have it back to the buyer.

Most lenders can work with a credit score of 620 and higher and there are a few that say they can work with lower scores.

We just sold our home in a very upscale neighborhood in Broken Arrow. We did it for sale by owner and saved ourselves over $18,000 in realtor fees. It was easy to do the marketing, open houses, negotiating and contract by ourselves. There are many many websites and tips that can help you do the same thing a realtor does without paying all the commission.

My name is Brooke.....I was a mortgage broker for numerous years so I did have a lot more knowledge than the average Joe. If you have any questions if you decide to do it yourself, you are welcome to give shoot me a text @ 918-955-6180

A better question. To post your home on the Trulia you first need to list it with a real estate agent. After doing so, they will handle the marketing details for you.
