I've done so many campaigns and they always work, the reason is how you set up the subject line and who your targeted audience is.

The home last sold in 2012 for $14,000,000. There is a significance difference in square footage between the information in the MLS and the tax records. Without knowing the size of the home it is difficult to answer your question.
Good luck,

California the property tax is usually 1%. Call the county recorders office and get the exact number or the lender will try to collect 1.25%. It could be the taxes are higher too, then the lender will not be collecting enough and it is actually worse. Because a few years later you end up with a big shortage.

I call the county and get the correct tax rate for all my real estate and mortgage customers so the do not pay too much nor too little.

If you are going to buy a house, I would love to compete for your mortgage.My rates are among the lowest around most of the time.

The estimated value on these sites are based upon transferred titles on public records.
If there is a property in your comparable area that has recently transferred as a result of a foreclosure or a short sale (lower value), then these sites are going to put those values into the calculation for a straight average price.

An appraiser and a professional real estate agent are going to take those properties and put them 'aside' from the valuation process.

You have an un-enforceable contract.

A contract should have a start date and an end date.

Good luck and give us a call when you are ready.

Sally Grenier answered:
Ah ha! There's more to the story. I agree with Cindy. Yes, you could owe the Realtor a commission. Sounds like he wants it, and it sounds like he has a very good case for procuring cause. Especially now that you're posting details on a public website, acknowledging that you DID go around him! If you really want the house, you might talk to the seller and see if you and seller can both come up with $$ to pay his commission. Or terminate the contract and move on.

This is a great example of why buyers and sellers really need to be fully informed about ALL ramifications when entering into a legally binding contract.

Good luck!

Nessa, trulia is not a real estate brokerage - it's just a website. Focus on finding the right real estate brokerage first. Once you are able to practice real estate you can sign up for an account on Trulia. ... more

Cindy Davis answered:
I agree with Larry. Trulia is not a good place to look for purchases or rentals because nothing is up to date. I still like Craigslist for rentals.

Good luck,

homebuyer answered:
Sorry to hijack this thread but we have a similar situation --

We saw a house in Open House and asked our Buyer Agent (no contract only representation) to write an offer. Offer was not accepted. We made offer for another house (again we saw in OH). This was a Owner Sale and Owner offered 1% commission. Our Agent insisted for 2% and the deal fell off ( we learnt about all these from the Owner after the deal fell off).

This made us upset. I think she should have told us that seller is offering 1% and she would not work for that. We told her we will not be buying anything.

Few days later, we went back to the first house directly through the Sellers Agent, negotiated further and offer is accepted. The Selling Agent has now added the following in the P&S -- "Buyer represents and warrants there are no other broker with whom Buyer has dealt in connection with purchase of the premises ". I am suspecting this will be a lie and our earlier Agent might come after us for commission . Please advise

Remember, our agent did not show us any of the property , just wrote offer.

OMG - nothing like dredging up an old - 4 year old - question for the sheer purpose of denigrating agents.

this is a real estate site .......someone asks a question about selling a home......why shouldn't agents.

And.....perhaps he was looking for that kind of help as fsbo's can't post their homes on trulia.
