I'm sure you can. If you have a real estate agent in Idaho they probably know a good local loan originator. I would go that route over someone you find on the Internet.

Even though they have common ownership, I don't think Trulia does FSBO listings.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
Did you have a realtor assist you in buying your home? If yes, contact your realtor and have him/her contact the listing agent to remove the interior pictures. The listing agent is the one who posted the pictures and is the only person to remove it.

Trulia is just a media platform that allows realtors, landlords to advertise their listings. Trulia has no control over the content.

The problem is the sellers bank who needs to approve the short sale, is not trhe one that sets asking price. The sales price will need to be near market value. Short sales dont take 6 months any more. Most of our short sales we can get done in 6 weeks from start to close. You need to find out what the hold up is, who is handling the negotiation with the seller bank and what the bank wants or needs to make this work. Yes you can demand it and if they wont give it to you, you should have walked months ago as it should not be taking this long ... more

Trulia does not allow FSBO listings to be marketed on this site. In order for your home to be marketed here you will need to list it with a licensed real estate professional which is what I highly recommend you do anyway. ... more

There is NO REQUIREMENT for a brokers open. In the past, aka before the internet, and the ability to post pictures and do virtual tours, it was far more important to do a BROKERS OPEN, in the first week, as one of the PRIMARY means of getting eyeballs on the property.

This is no longer the case. the availability of pictures allows us to search for homes for our buyers using the (backside) of the realtors data. What you see publicly is only part of the information we have available to us, for matching criteria.

This isnt to say a brokers open isnt valuable. However, anytime in the first 30-45 days is acceptable.

Most of us have a "marketing plan", with something new happening each of the first 6 weeks, to different resources and venues.. most of it happens in the first 3 weeks, then week 4, 5, and 6, then repeat and refresh, evaluate , number of showings feed back, consider photograph changes, price changes, staging change ups, etc. then wash rinse and repeat.

If you particularly want a brokers open, Talk to your realtor and request one. If you are in a particularly remote area, your broker may fear she will go to the effort and expense, and still not get anyone to come. YOU can incentivize the brokers to make the trip with a drawing for a gas card or any other thing, ask your broker if she thinks an incentive will bring them out...

best of luck.. when in doubt? ASK your realtor.

Debbie Nelson & Cole Blackburn answered:
In my experience the down would need to be a minimum of 5-10% as the seller has fees to pay at closing to selling you the home, even with an owners contract there are title and escrow fees, excise taxes and if the home is listed with a Realtor the seller is responsible for the marketing fee. BUT, the down payment is what ever the buyer and seller agree upon. Good luck! ... more
