If you or a prior owner listed the house, and that listing was somehow fed to Trulia, then someone did effectively give permission to use the photos. Trulia apparently has a way to remove those. Also, as to the photos, I wouldn't assume they are yours. Ownership is more likely that of a real estate agentor the photos of a professional photographer.

The rest of the information comes from public records and I don't believe there is a way to remove that.

Hi Kelly,

I highly recommend that you seek out and plug into your local "Landlord Association" which most states and large cities offer. The annual fees are quite reasonable and you glean the most useful information by attending the meetings. Questions get answered by other people who are members and have more experience and new landlord tenant laws are reviewed to keep you educated and informed. Google should be able to find the Landlord Association for your state and city.
That said... my best advice is don't rent to anyone that does not pass your criteria. A bad renter is worse than no renter in the whole scheme of things.
Best Regards, Cindy Humphrey - Realtor, Licensed Property Manager, Helena, MT

There are many variables on building, however $100 sq ft is a good starting point

In general, unless tenants are very cooperative and allow the home to be shown with a minimum of 24 hours notice and keep the home in "show" condition, it is better to have the home vacant while on the market. With that said, in the current market, marketing times are taking longer, you need to think about how long you would be willing to carry the property without a tenant.
Another option, would be to offer the tenant a reduction in rent during the time the home is on the market as an incentive for the tenant to cooperate with showings.
Without seeing the property and doing a walkthrough, it is difficult to provide you with a price for your home. When you are ready, I would welcome the opportunity to provide you with a market consultation.
