I received permission from the selling agent to protect the home as the owner is in a nursing home and being represented by some one over a 1000 miles away. I installed cameras and new locks on the house. The farm has current renters, they dont live in the house but farm the surrounding area. The renters keep adding things to the list of their property like Fencing that was listed in the property add and fuel tanks that have been on the property for 30 years. As well as old equipment and tin that some one obviously removed from the barn and list goes on and on. Do I have any legal standing here or will I be robed blind? ... more

The seller should pay. However, in NYC, if you are looking at a listing that's real cheap, odds are the reason it's cheap is because either there are liens, taxes or some other payment that's due or it's a foreclosure and needs major renovations and repairs.

In NYC, if there are taxes, liens, etc. due, you will need to pay for it. Obviously the seller doesn't have the money and is looking for a buyer who can afford to pay the bill. What you can do is negotiate the price down low enough so you can pay the tax bill.

I am Mary from Trulia Consumer Care. I apologize if you experienced any inconvenience or frustration with editing your for sale by owner listing and I am happy to help take care of your concern.

As a general reference, Trulia does not have a central platform to post/edit listings. Instead, listings are sent to us through a variety of feed sources such as partners, brokers, agents, third-party feed providers, or directly from an MLS.

Your listing, specifically, is being sent to us from Zillow, which is our partner site that sends us listings.

Any changes you are requesting to your listing on Trulia will need to be updated at the source, Zillow. Here is a helpful link on how to edit your Zillow listing:

Your changes will automatically update to Trulia within 24 hours. I have also sent you an email regarding this concern.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Thank you for using Trulia!

Marketing 101. It's probably not the best luxury rental in Brooklyn, however, developers, builders and realtors will claim in their advertising anything to get buyers to purchase one of the units. It's called "puffery" - little white lies that get units sold. Remember NY is a buyer beware state. It's up to the buyer to do their homework and research everything before closing on a sale. ... more

depends if the new home owner accepts this at the price they offer to purchase the home for.

You're simply trying to sell your home, every short coming can typically be solved by price. But you have to find someone willing to accept that short coming.

Some people buy a home because there is little to no work that needs to be done. The more you fix yourself, the higher the offer you may get and the quicker the home may sell.

It's a sales transaction, some people are motivated by money, others by what they are getting for the money they are spending.
