Trulia does not support For Sale By Owner listings. 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 should appear on Trulia within 72 hours after going live in the MLS system ... more

The information you have provided is good for a "starter" but there are many more important factors the enter into consideration here. Age of the home, garage size, the extent of updates, portion of land usable, overall condition, etc.

You best bet for accurate information is to request a market analysis from a local agent(s)....not someone from Brooklyn or have a professional appraisal done. Kim, Jim, Dave, and Tammie would be great choices.

Good luck,

Hi Karen,

The seller signs the offer they want to accept first then the agent forwards on to the lender and then they either approve it or counter back with terms/price they want.

Short sales take a bit longer than a regular purchase but if your willing to wait it out you may be able to get a good deal.

Happy house hunting to you.

In the short sale process the lender holds all the cards and are under no obligation to extend any contract regardless of the reason.

There are no set fees when it comes to commissions for realtors and brokerages. The commission is agreed to by both the seller of the property and the listing agent with the permission of the listing broker.6% is a good place to start, but the commission can go up or down from there and there can also be flat fees set or selling bonuses as well. ... more

Hi Cathy,

Did your agent search the public records and determine if this actually went to a foreclosure auction or did the borrower do a Deed In Lieu of foreclosure? It sounds like the latter if they don't have the quit claim deed in their hands. Or it may be that the lender foreclosed or fannie mae and that foreclosing lender needed to sign a quit claim over to fannie mae.

So, unfortunately you have little to no control over the situation but hopefully it will eventually close.

One other problem is if the law firm that did the foreclosure is one of the known fraudulent filers.

Your agent can contact the title company to get a better explanation of why they need a Quit Claim Deed and who they need it from.

Hope this helps.

One more thing... make sure with your Seller that you are approved to list their property on-line. Frequently if they do not want to be listed in the MLS, they will not want to be advertised on-line either. I have mine sign a one-page "Modification to Listing Agreement" that spells out clearly that I am authorized to advertise online in different portals.
