Hi Harriet: There are so many variables to your question. It is hard to answer it here without an exact address. You could contact one of the Realtors on Trulia to get a more concise answer to your question.

A ballpark figure for all 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom homes sold in the past two months, they sold for an average of $65 per square foot, 1,077 square feet, average sale price of $72,868 in 77 days.

The variables for you are, how soon do you need to sell (or buy). Do you have or need a loan to purchase? Etc., etc., etc. Your answers to these questions will determine your strategy whether buying or selling.

Hello Connie. This property is currently not listed in the MLS, but it was listed several times before (most recently a year ago). I could not find it among the properties that are currently in foreclosure. Unfortunately, many of the properties you'll find on Trulia may not be for sale. You may wonder why they are on Trulia at all if they are not for sale. Well, Trulia receives information from many sources and Trulia is only as current as the source from which it gets its information.

If you are looking for current listings, I'd recommend you either search on or use the MLS search tool of a real estate agent. If you are working with an agent, ask him or her to set you up for automatic e-mail notification for properties that come on the market with features that match your search criteria. That way you'll be instantly notified of properties that might be of interest to you.

Please note that most of the properties in this neighborhood have less square footage. Out of the 29 active listings within a 1/2-mile radius from 5308 Sampson Blvd, only 2 are in the 2,000 sqft range. Most of the properties have less than 1,000 sqft. Many are listed for under $100,000.

Hello Hector. The notice of default was recorded on 9/2/08, which means that the home will not become a bank-owned property any time soon. It appears that the property is currently tenant occupied. If the tenants don't move out before the trustee sale, the bank will have to give the tenants 60-day notice and the bank will not put the property on the market until the tenants are out. Unless the property will be relisted as a short sale, it won't come on the market as a bank owned property until some time in spring of 2009. There are lots of other properties available. ... more
