These are averages across all price ranges for 12 months ending September 2017, the latest summary available in FMLS.

• Cumming Single Family Homes for Sale: 35
• Cumming Townhouses and Condos for Sale: 22

Please be cautioned against making any decisions based solely on these numbers. The average days on market for your home may be much different depending upon the property, situation, etc.

If you're not involved with a broker, I'd welcome the opportunity to speak with about your specific property.

Hello,

Your home is priced right, looks great in both MLS systems and is already accessible to investors. But cash investors typically pay no more than the low 200s. Also, your neighborhood may have rent restrictions that limit investor activity and that is a good thing IMHO. I think a sale will soon come along.

Full disclosure. I am an agent with the brokerage that is handling the sale, but I don't know your agent.

Good luck

Hi svetatil,

It sounds like you've had better days.....

I would suggest speaking with your real estate agent or broker to start with. They will be more aware of the details related to your specific case.

There may be multiple factors at play here, and the resolution could be anything from someone saying oops... we made a mistake & writing a check to asking a court to decide how to resolve the issue.

There isn't a managing authority for these industries that oversees civil disagreements or determines responsibility in a case like this.

Give your agent a call, and they should be able to assist you in determining which direction follow.

Good Luck,
Kirsten Wellborn

I realize that this is a 5 month old question, but for future reference, anyone can post a FSBO on zillow, which will automatically place the listing on Trulia as well (since Trulia is owned by Zillow). Use the following link.

http://www.zillow.com/for-sale-by-owner/

Do not listen to any realtor who may claim otherwise.

Regards.

Sorry, but this isn't a Trulia help desk or tech support. The Q & A section is for consumers to ask us pros questions about buying and selling real estate. You need to talk to your Realtor and see if their MLS syndicates to this site. Or, he/she can manually add it. ... more

Short sale is absolutely better because on a Foreclosure the Bank will come back to you to pay the difference for what it sold for if under the owed amount + taxes and the cost to sell. The short sale will not the bank will absorb it, but you have to get it approved for a short sale. I currently have short sale credentials and Attorneys to assist on the short sale paperwork, let me know if I can help. ... more

I would have a local real estate agent to come over and speak with you. The agent can recommend what to do in the home to sell it for the price you want. Best of Luck.

Buyers may place value on a finished basement, especially if it suits their personal needs for more space (playroom, office area, storage, etc), but......appraisers don't add value (or only add minimal value) to below grade level rooms..........and "bedrooms" located in a basement aren't counted, either

however...........is this a walk-out basement?

You really should be looking at your particular community for average days on the market. Each community is different. In 30041 we have communities priced in the low 100's all the way up to multimillion dollar communities. Your Realtor should be able to provide this data for you. I will tell you right now, our inventory is very low across the board. Most homes priced well are able to procure a buyer within 20-30 days max. ... more

Melanie Gurley answered:
I'm confused. Why would the buyer want to increase the sales price? Do you mean the buyer wants to increase the sales price and increase your contribution to his closing costs accordingly? If this is the case, you agent is correct. It will make no difference to you as the net will be the same. However, the Broker fees will also increase a little as the commission is based off the purchase price. The buyer will also be taking on more debt (he's financing his closing costs in other words), but that is of no concern to you. ... more

I very much agree with YOU the homeowner..... sometimes it is frustrating to the listing agent working for the home owner to give them feedback, when the buyers agents do not respond to their requestfor feedback. I am at heart a buyers agent, just love to work with buyers, investors, but of course with sellers, and I always always give the listing agents feedback.

But I have to mention something, sometimes, unless the buyers agent has been working with buyers for a while and they are very open in their impression of the home, and on the other hand the buyers agent is fully aware of the fact that honest feedback will help not only the listing agent to sell the home, but also the home owners to potentially make some changes (simple as painting a front door, or getting some pretty plantings by the front door, just some examples) ---- but then there are buyers who are not very vocal about what they like and do not like, and then it becomes hard for the Agent to give buyers feedback, then the agent just can give his or her own thoughts which may be very different from their particular client. Also each buyer looks at different items in a home.....

Hi Danish_zia

I have now confirmed what the problem is. Your home's listing is listed on our site as "off market" because we are not being provided with any information regarding this listing.

Listings must first be submitted to Trulia with the active information before they can appear on our site as "active".

The best course of action is for you to contact you listing agent, and refer them to this page: http://www.trulia.com/submit_listings/ . Please be sure to ask your agent why your home was not posted on Trulia initially as you had expected.

Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with,

Hi Tyler,

All information is usually provided with the disclaimer that the buyer should do their own due diligence and independently verify the information. That being sad, I think buyers love to see a floorplan it helps them remember the spaces, place furniture, plan removation etc. Great tool for my listings. ... more

Edith Karoline Jasser answered:
New Agen? My answer is probably not, because the new agent is not going to be a magician, he or she will have similar means available to market and advertise your home, as long as you have a good relationship with the agent, trust him or her, and have great communications, then sit down and discuss the market surrounding you, if your price is competitive and your home has been well prepared for showings, staging, painting, repairs etc. or ask your agent if he or she can suggest some inexpensive additional changes, and then let the agent inform you about the surrounding market, what has sold and what price as far as homes are concerned that are in your price range and in your
type and size of home, that will tell you two things is mine priced competitively enough, is mine updated enough, then you can discuss with your Realtor what you can do about it....

There is some advantage to selling a home that is not a short sale and not a foreclosure, ask your agent to
explain, but updates, curb appeal, and price will make the difference....

Good luck to you!

C,

If the buyer is still in their due dilligence period they can back out for any reason and retain their earnest money.
