Hi Bridget,

There could be a number of reasons.

1) The number of baths is listed incorrectly on your property card at North Castle
2) The number of baths is not populating into Zillow/Trulia's system from their tax service
3) Zillow/Trulia data made an error

If your house is for sale then it is your agent's responsibility to make sure the information remains updated as this is a third party site and information is not always transferred properly from the MLS.

You are getting some good answers here and should take it all into consideration. However I would also tell you to look at where some of your responses are from and keep location of agents in mind. Yes oil tank issues are the same no matter where you live but what is considered "acceptable" for a buyer may be different based on location.

In Westchester County I would say most buyers I have dealt with would prefer either gas or an above ground oil tank. This is based on several things but the largest factor is people are generally worried about the impact that an oil leak may have to enviroment as well as there pocket. That being said it also the reason that people have an oil tank inspected. I have found that if tank passes inspection of a pro, that most buyers will continue going forward with the purchase. However keep in mind if a tank is inspected and it fails, the tank inspector must report this and you will not be able to sell your home with clean title till that oil related issue is resolved.

Finally you mentioned that it would be "insured aganist leak damage" Do you have insurance on the tank that is transferrable to the buyer? It is very hard today to get tank insurance so if you do have it and the new buyer can keep it, that would be a major plus. Good luck with your sale.

Social media should not be seem as a tool to blast properties but rather a tool to keep in touch with your friends/sphere.

its like a cocktail party. you dont show up and walk up to a group of people and just say:
"Hi my name is Sean, interested in buying or selling a house? Here is my card, and give me a call"
"Hi everyone, I have an amazing 2 bed blah blah blah"

They would not only walk away from you but probably not want to talk to you again.

Same thing applies online. If you want some suggestions or go over what you do etc, you can drop me an email and we can chat on the phone/skype or just put some stuff in the email and I would be happy to give my two cents
