Hello,

To start, I would like to note that the Trulia estimate is an estimate derived from our proprietary algorithm. Our estimates use a ton of info, including recent sales of similar homes and home facts like number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage, and more to provide insight into what a home is worth. This data is compiled from public records and other sources for counties across the US. Please know that we do not intend for the estimate to replace a comparative market analysis as they can take into account market intricacies that the Trulia Estimate cannot. The Trulia Estimate is really meant to be a starting point in determining a home’s value and is not an official appraisal. To learn more about the Trulia estimate, we encourage our users to follow this link: http://www.trulia.com/trulia_estimates//.

Please also note that we do not directly edit or remove Trulia estimates. While we monitor customer feedback for systematic issues with the algorithm, we do not change individual estimates in response to customer feedback. We understand however, that some homes may be unique in ways that are not well captured by existing data. To provide more information on your estimate, we encourage you to claim your home and update its facts if you notice any information is outdated.

Updates to your home facts will be factored into your home's Trulia estimate, however, if the updates are not significant enough to impact the home's value, your estimate may not change.

If you're looking for a precise value for your home, we recommend you talk to a real estate professional.

One thing to consider is that when you do put your home on the market, the Trulia estimate will disappear as it is a feature only available for off market properties.

Regards,

It costs money for any organization to perform administrative tasks. This is quite common, it should not be a surprise. These rules are spelled out in your HOA documents and any experienced agent should be aware of these fees as well.

Most HOAs also have an inspection that should be performed before the closing and there is also usually a fee for this. The buyers should ask for the inspection - no one wants to purchase a home that has HOA violations, so they should get a report that confirms your property is in good standing w/the HOA and you don't have any violations.

If the inspection does indicate any violations, you are probably required to remedy them before closing - this is usually covered in your purchase contract. You should carefully read that section of your contract and possibly have an attorney review it if there are any aspects that you don't understand.

Tina, That would depend on the price range you are searching in. The price per sq ft of a large older home in town needing updates at a lower sale price will be significantly less than the same sf ft home in a historic district and well maintained. Same as a newer house with basic builder grade amenities vs the same sf in a newer house with hardwood and corian tops will be significantly different. Location, maintenance and upgrades are significant factors in price per sq ft. Are you shopping for more space or quality and location per sq ft? ... more

Julie Timmons answered:
Dale, are you a cash investor? Many people who look at foreclosures as a great deal at the max of their price range, do not realize many will not pass home inspections. Typically the seller (bank or FNMA) will not make repairs and banks will not loan if repairs are not made. Please contact me for additional information. ... more

The issues at hand are quality of work and work to code... which is basically any plumbing, electrical, structural framing work, and any hidden issues with the basement foundation walls. Some sellers avoid the county because they will assess a higher tax value on their home, the code enforcement office is there to help protect current and future owners from shoddy workmanship. ... more

This question was posted Sep 10, 2012, ten months ago.
As Jeff Finks CORRECTLY stated. real estate agents have NO control over what appears on aggregate real estate websites like Trulia. Did I mention , NO CONTROL?
-
When a seller indicates they want the home advertised on the 'internet', contol over where and how it appears is LOST>>>>>FOREVER!
-
According to Trulia, data appearing on this site comes from LISTHUB, a third party data aggregator.
LISTHUB obtains 'homes for sale' data from sources not identifed by Trulia. LISTHUB, at their sole descretion, replaces, substitutes and delets data that suites their purpose. This data is passed to Trulia, who suppresss, masks, replaces, deletes data at their descretion for their pupposes.

-Their purpose is to sell the agents listing back to the agent(i.e. restore the correct/original data) and to sell advertising to real estate professiionals.
-
Trulia will assign some of these listing, using an exsiting algorithm to participateing agents. Agents do not give consent for any listings to appear on Trulia. Many agents may be unaware their listings are appearing on Trulia. To be fair, I must add there are hundreds of similar websites showing real estate data, and the agent has no knowledge or grants consent for the data to appear.
-
It is UNREASONALBE to expect any agent to troll these hundreds of websites to spot inaccuracies and spend the time to find someone within these organization to FIX the problem. (Note: even when fixed, the issue repeats on the next refresh.)
-
Caps are used to make the point.
REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONALS ARE NOT REPONSIBLE FOR INFORMATION APPEARING ON AGGREGATE REAL ESTATE WEBSITES.! HOME SELLERS SHOULD CHOOSE TO NOT ADVERTISE THEIR HOME ON THE INTERNET(AGGREGATE WEBSITES). THIS WILL PROTECT ALL PARTIES, INCLUDING THE BUYER!
-
If you have suffered material loss, have your attorney contact the appropriate organization.
