Diane Christner answered:
Homes sell at a price a buyer is willing to pay and a seller is willing to accept. If you haven't received an offer in 3 months on the market, buyers are telling you the list price is too high. An overpriced listing discourages prospective buyers from making offers, if the difference between the asking price and the today's market value is substantial. Many buyers choose not to waste their time on overpriced homes. Listing prices should be based on the most recent sales in your neighborhood of comparable (emphasis on comparable) homes, not on what you paid for the property or what you need in profit to reach other goals. You as a seller must decide if you are willing to price your home at a more competitive market price or wait months (or longer) for the market to catch up with your expectations. ... more

hard to say - without knowing more details...

What I can tell you is that it takes more than just a sign in the front yard and placing your property on the MLS (& internet ) to sell .....

Real Estate is a Marketing & Sales career, and too many people get into the business with zero experience in either. The days of putting a sign in the front yard and sitting back and waiting for the offers to roll in are over and those types of agents are slowly being removed from the industry..

This is roll up your sleeves and market, market, market, sell, sell, sell time..

FYI -- you're posting a question on a national website that is basically a database of listings from different sources. This is not a real estate company and it is not the MLS. If you're interested in buying a home, you should NOT be relying on a site like Trulia (or Zillow or The data isn't necessarily up to date, nor accurate. You need to be working with a REALTOR as a Buyer's Agent. He/she can search your local MLS which will specify lot rent (and other data that doesn't show up on this site).

Good luck!

Sally Grenier answered:
The "foreclosure" listings you see here aren't very accurate. It's possible the seller has missed a few payments and the lender has filed an NED (notice of election & demand with the county). The listings you find here on Trulia and other sites like Zillow get pulled from different sources -- like county records. It doesn't mean they are for sale.

If you're interested in buying a home, you need to be working with a Realtor as your buyer's agent. He/she can search the MLS which is the ONLY source of accurate listing info. Any foreclosure available will be listed in the MLS.

Just because this property is listed here under "foreclosures" doesn't mean it has been foreclosed on, nor is it necessarily available for purchase. Not all properties go to foreclosure. It's quite possible the seller will get current on their payments and stop the foreclosure process. Good luck!

Hi Andy,

Trulia doesn't allow FSBO homes listed manually. You would have to pay a premium for a flat fee listing service.

The NAR states that FSBO homes typically sell for an average of $184,000 compared to agent assisted homes at $230,000. That's a big difference! So selling with an agent will usually get you more money in the end, and it will sell faster with less hassle on you.

We created our service for home sellers looking for the best deal possible. Agents will compete against each other to earn your listing, so you're more likely to receive a great commission rate. You'll also be able to compare agents so you can select the best agent possible! There's no risk to try us out, and it's completely free for you!

Good luck!

If you are looking for a website that offers up to date foreclosure listings, I would like to recommend It is a leading website database that contains over two million foreclosure homes, including bank foreclosures, government foreclosures like VA homes and HUD homes, distressed properties and commercial properties that are for sale all across the nation. All of the listings have had any outstanding liens eliminated and the title is free and clear. We also update our extensive collection of listings every day. ... more

The amount of earnest money is negotiable but the more you put down the more serious your offer will be taken.

Lauren Gilbert answered:
Now is a great time to build! The reality is that home inventory in Flagler County is dwindling and prices are continuing to rise. We are in the midst of a seller's market and it is becoming increasingly difficult for buyer's to find exactly what they are looking for (at the right price), so they are resorting to building.

I would be happy to conduct a market analysis for you within the area you are searching to help you weigh the cost of building vs. buying pre-owned. And to answer your other question, I have 15 years of architectural design experience, so I would love to work with you from start to finish.

Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss further.

Warm regards,
Lauren Gilbert

First the home has to be in good condition and can not need repair. Other than that is depends on the offer. SOme can ask you to pay 3 to 6 percent of the closing costs. As a seller you can build it into your price or counter offer. It is standard and nothing to be afraid of. your listing agent should guide you with how FHA works ... more

The Flagler area offers a wide variety of beaches and golf courses. The area is 60/40 retirees to young families. We're in the top 15 for school district. The area offers tons of walking paths and outdoor activities. Flagler Beach also has a lot of nice mom and pop restaurants and beach fare. The beaches have coquina sand, and the Flagler pier is available for fishing or walking. We're right in the middle of St. Augustine and Daytona Beach. A real prime location with Orlando is just a 2 hour drive away. ... more

Just some advice - since you will not be working with an agent - make VERY sure the person you are dealing with through those sites is the genuine owner!

There are rental scams out there - on Craigslist and on your due diligence before sending money to anyone. ... more

C.Pat Denvir answered:
Greg, you are correct. The land does not belong to the manufactured home .It is rented from the community's owner.The rental amount varies with the size and location of the lot. In some areas of this community there is a cap on the amount the lot rent can increase. Various parts of this community have different caps. Lot rent usually includes water and trash pick up. TV, lawn maintenance and pest control are the responsibility of the home owner.
There is an oceanside community of manufactured homes that have a land co op. If you have an interest, please contact me and I shall check to see what is available there.
