There are scammers on every site. If it's too good to be true, it usually is. If you are answering an ad that says they are the "owner" and live out of state etc. Do not ever do anything with out meeting someone face to face at the actual property. If they are asking for $$ with out inquiring about your credentials and asking you to fill out an application etc, it's a scam. Another good option is to check the county website to see who the owner actually is. ... more

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hello Judi.arneson,

The only way to get your FSBO home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, but you could also pay for what's called a flat fee listing service if you want to sell by owner (generally not a good idea).

We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you.

Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

Hello Katheryn:

The best way to find a home is to hire a full time professional agent. They can help you navigate through the entire process, including locating your future home.

For instance, Champions Circle are single family homes. There are patio homes in that area, infact, Champions Circle is right across from the patio homes. Patio homes can be found on Peachtree, Sugarplum, Apricot and some of Mount Royal.

I am happy to assist you in looking for that home and providing you with more information on that home and others. If it is just patio homes you are looking for, I can assist you in finding those. If you want more information, feel free to call or email me. As a resident and agent in Castle Rock, I am familiar with this area and happy to assist you!

Rob Meissner answered:
Hello. This would increase the Finished Price Per Sq. Foot. I am of the opinion that you never get back out of the sale the money that you put into finishing the basement. Is the basement a garden level, walk out or cellar? If the basement is garden level or walk-out I think you should then include the basement as finished sq. feet when calculating out list price. The quality of work should make it feel like it is above ground, meaning no short-cuts especially on finishes and fixtures! ... more

David Nelson answered:
To receive the highest price for your home, it needs to be in "like new" condition. It can be useful to tour a local home builders' show homes to get a feel for the type of condition and staging necessary to garner top dollar for your home. Of course, it goes without saying, the added value in sales price should be more than the cost of the repair or upgrade. ... more

The Meridian Group LLC answered:
As Michael mentioned below... yes, we can help you find a new home as well which would provide more space for your dog and you wouldn't have the higher HOA dues of a townhouse.

Of course it is up to you!

We are here to help.

Robert McGuire answered:

You can't do it here or on the MLS or other major search engines. But then again, why would you? There are too many variables that only a professional would know how to work with. Statistics show that you get more for your home by using a Realtor who knows how to valuate your home and market it properly to get the most exposure. all the best.
