Your agent can easily log on and add listing manually or edit an existing listing from their account. You do not have to wait for it to auto adjust from MLS

Go under contract on the home you are wanting first. Especially if it is a new build it will take some time to be completed and to get to closing. The market right now is very competitive so you should have no problem getting your home sold, the problem most people are having is finding a new home with all the competition. ... more

All listings on Trulia are generated by the listing Real estate agent; Trulia scans the MLS data base and posts that information to their web site. If you have your home listed through a licensed Realtor then your listing and corrections or changes should appear on Trulia within 72 hours after going live in the MLS system ... more

Is your home listed for sale with a REALTOR? If so, you need to contact him/her. This site pulls listings from different local MLSs, so whatever is in the MLS will appear here. Your agent may also manually edit the listing here on Trulia. ... more

We track feedback on all builders at feel free to check it out. Personally, I owned a Richmond Home and the walk through stickers fell off the wall before customer service came out to fix anything. I don't recommend them to my buyers. ... more

Keep in mind that these so-called real estate website are really just marketing sites. It's a big database that pulls data from different sources, such as local MLSs and public records. It's not perfect and I wouldn't rely on this site for accurate info. Most buyers are going to find your home through their Realtor. ... more

It sounds like your carpet needs to be cleaned, not replaced. If it's only four years old, it should have a lot of life left in it. I'd talk to a professional cleaner to see what they can do before you assume you need to replace it all. ... more

Now is an excellent time! As others have said, a good agent can give you some advice on what you should do, what you don't need to do, etc. They can also advise you on what types of upgrades to do. Sometimes people want to skimp on things to save money, but it might be better to invest a little more for a better quality product. (or not do it all and give the buyer a credit....i.e. carpet allowance).

As you probably know, we're in a super crazy Seller's market. Not sure what condition your home is in...but could probably list it today and get multiple offers.

Good question for your agent. It could be that their MLS doesn't have listing syndication services to this site? He/she may have to manually add it to the Trulia website.

Selling a home really requires hard work. If you want people to get interested in your property, find ways on how to market them. You can post photos and videos in Facebook. Invite your neighbors and friends to share it. Make sure you use good photos to attract buyers. Also, get real with your price and use powerful key words to market your property. Powerful keywords like "Your dream Home" and phrases like "beautiful and spacious" can help you attract buyers. ... more

I sold my unit in Victoria Village at the end of March this year. Having the right agent and marketing makes all the difference. I originally listed in late August 2013 with the WRONG agent and nothing happened for over 120 days. A few showings, but no bites. After 6 weeks of the agent not even contacting me over the holidays, we decided to let him go and delist for 30 days.

Came back on the market on in the second week of February 2014 with the RIGHT agent with a competent marketing plan. We got showings over the first weekend and had two full-price offers to consider in 10 days. We closed on the first contract 30 days later.

Price has to match condition and a seasoned professional real estate agent are the key.

Great advice by my colleagues, but don't forget the things that make a home appealing, some of which were mentioned, but worth mentioning again.

Fresh paint, granite counters, new carpet, staging, landscaped yard, working lights, and.....let the natural light in!! ... more

Wanda Jo Plott answered:
When looking at square footage of a home the main level or above grade square footage is given more value than your basement. Many Foreclosures and REO properties are held by out of state institutions which do not understand our market and place very little value to basement finishes or homes with unfinished basements. I'll be happy to discuss the value of a finished or unfinished basement as well as the different types of basements in the Colorado Springs area. Have a great week. ... more
