Thank you for contacting us regarding your For Sale by Owner listing. It appears that your listing isn’t active on Zillow yet which is why you are not seeing it on Trulia. Zillow recently implemented a new verification process for manually posted listings on their site.

I have created a ticket on your behalf for the Zillow Consumer Care team. Once they are able to verify your listing they’ll reach out to you to confirm.

Once your listing is active on Zillow it will syndicate to Trulia within 24 hours. We apologize for the delay and we thank you for your patience.

Thank you for using Trulia!

This depends on the market in the region. In some areas a 3 bedroom ranch with attached 2 car garage will sell for $69,000. In another market the same house would sell for over $300,000. What should the commission be? Is it back in the woods or is is waterfront? Is it in Tornado alley or in a busy growing market? What's the crime rate? Take an average of all those situations and what you have is an average. It has no bearing on the value to a real estate agency of your property listing. ... more

Yes, there are several agents that do this. Do you have any other questions that deal with flipping properties? I am not an agent that does this, but have two agents at my office that do. Hope this helps. Lisa ... more

When your agent listed your home, the agent probably not only considered that appraisal in coming up with a listing price, but also checked what similar homes have sold for recently and what competition you have. When you receive an offer, it's best to sit down with your agent and review the offer closely, not just for price but for terms. Then you have to consider whether you want to make a counter offer. Your agent is there to explain your options so that you will understand clearly what your choices are. ... more

Murphy Team answered:
I believe that some agents or sellers may just want the phone to ring and have a conversation with folks who may be interested in the property. They may be forgetting that we are living in 2014 where consumers "need" instant information and will pass up possible opportunities is critical details are eliminated. Take a second and call to find out where the place is. It could be just the place for you. ... more

Bill Eckler answered:

These are issues best responded to by legal representation and/or an accountant. It would be fair to assume that all issues would need to be spelled out and agreed to in your contract. Taxes, maintenance, HOA fees, etc would need to be addressed.

Good luck,

Real estate sells or does not for two basic reasons. Pricing in line, realistic with the market which your agent, broker, REALTOR sits down at listing time and explains. If you decide as the seller let's bump it up $50,000 thinking someone will show up with a wheel barrel of money, that hit the lottery, that is part of the delay. Your over priced property helps sell someone elses right in line. Makes that other fairly priced real estate look like an even better deal.

Second reason is marketing. Aggressive, passionate, all out marketing. Not just "being" on the Internet, but being everywhere on the Internet. Google your agent, other agents and scan, eyeball, scroll down the screen and see what shows up? Do a search for your market on Bing, Google, etc. Is your broker, agent, REALTOR on that first page...and more than once? Is he or she doing real videos of your place, the area knowing the buyer is not just local? Are the images, copy skimpy, or one size fits all because written by the lady with the bun hairdoo out front that doubles as ther office receptionist. You know the one, with the 1950's glasses that did the best she could but never has been there to your place. So the "nice home, nice neighborhood, nice layout"...(gag) mls description is safe but bland, diet. fat free. That's no fun.

Sell the sizzle not the steak. Hope this helps. Get more images, better wide, crisper, video, more copy, blog posts, social media insertions. Your agent, broker, REALTOR will work with you. If they don't, relist when the contract runs out with someone who does.
