If it's listed in the MLS, it will show up here through listing syndication services. If you're an agent, you can also manually add it yourself. If you're the owner, and want to sell FSBO, then you can post it on Zillow as a FSBO. But remember...you get what you pay for! ;) ... more

You need to contact your agent and have him manually edit it. The reason why this happens is because sites like Zillow & Trulia don't necessarily recognize 3/4 baths as a bathroom. So it's really saying there's only 1 FULL bath. Which is why people shouldn't use sites like Trulia, Zillow or Realtor.com. ;-) ... more

Hi Jennifer and Greg,

Trulia pulls its homes for sale information through Colorado's MLS, and licensed real estate agents are also able to be list properties for sale on this website. If you are working with a Realtor, he or she should be able to accomplish this for you. If you are not, feel free to contact me and I can talk to you about some other advantages of listing your home with a Realtor, including maximum exposure on the market.

I've left my contact information below for you to contact me if you please.

Hi Amanda,

Have you considered renting your home instead of selling? The rental market in Aurora is very tight and good for owners.

If you're not already working with an agent who does property management, feel free to contact me and I can give you some more information on potential rental rates for your home and what keeping your property as an income producing investment might be like, My contact information is below.

FYI -- I'm not seeing it in the MLS yet. If you've listed it with a Realtor, you might want to follow up with him/her and see when it will "go live".

Darrick Gilliard answered:
Hello,
Zillow "Zestimates" are not very accurate. The Data that is used can sometimes be several years out date. Also if I am a FSBO and I put onto Zillow my home for sale 25k over what it is truly worth Zillow does capture this info and considers it a "listing" for value in the area, giving a false indicator.

Always consult a professional for ANYTHING that you do.

Thanks!

Belinda Spillman answered:
Of course you don't have to use a Realtor but remember, there are some serious legal issues with selling your home. You don't want to be alone in this venture. Why expose yourself to the legal liabilities of selling your own home unless you are an expert in real estate. You wouldn't treat yourself for a medical condition so why go this alone when there is so much at risk. You need someone representing and working for you. ... more

There can be so many reasons for the delay. Many times, buyers select out of state lenders who don't understand the rules of closing in a "Wet" state where we fund at the table. Hope this works out for you. ... more

JtAkenhorst,

You will need a unique Realtor to work with you on both of these areas. One is a condo in one area and it sounds like a home in rural Brighton. I would do some intensive interviews with 2 or 3 realtors to see who has that kind of expertise and who you gel with in the process. Best of success.

inna0223,

My understanding is that you will need to live there 2 out of the last five years when you sell to avoid capital gains taxes. But with your own personal situation it will be good to consult with your accountant for the best advice on how to move forward.

Sean Dougherty answered:
Although I agree with Sally, as we do not have all of the facts, the Buyer should not be holding the escrow money, the Title Company should be. If the work is done as per the contract, the Title Company should be releasing the money, so either the work is not completely done or the Title Company does not know it's done.

Ask the Title Company to explain why the money is not being released.

Hello Prides Crossing Home Owner,

Did you end up selling your home in Prides Crossing? In case you didn't, now may be a good time to put it on the market. There is only one home currently available for sale in Prides Crossing...supply and demand. For years there's consistently been between 24,000 and 32,000 homes available on the market in the Denver metro area. Right now there's just over 14,000 homes available and many of them are short sales, foreclosures or HUD homes. If your home is in good condition you might want to get it on the market now instead of waiting until spring when most people like to put their homes on the market. The lack of inventory is making it a bit difficult for Buyers to find a nice home right now. Currently I have an offer in on a home for one of my Buyers that wasn't even listed for sale. We're having to door knock to find homes for our buyers. We are running around asking other Realtors and Real Estate Agents if they have homes coming available that fit our Buyers needs. The nice homes that are priced fairly are getting multiple offers and selling a little over list price. Why wait till spring when you most likely will have lots of competition. Let me know if you want me to give you an idea of what it would sell for right now.

Flood insurance will be required if you are located in a flood plain. Home owners insurance won't cover flooding from an outside source and only covers inside plumbing issues if you have a rider or it's specifically called for in your policy. Is there more to your question that we should know? ... more

Hi Bill,

You want to see if your loan is a recourse loan or a non-recourse loan. If your lender has the legal right to pursue you they will. Is your loan recourse or non-recourse, then you will get a proper answer. Good luck!

Darrell Larson answered:
Radon gas is widely present in the soils of the front range. A properly installed radon mitigation system will keep the radon level at or below 4 pci/l. Not disclosing the awarenenss of radon or that it had been mitigated is a serious oversight by the seller and his agent. If you really liked the home you could have requested the seller to retest the radon level and have the existing system checked over by a reputable radon mitigation company as part of the inspection resolution.
