I see that the listing for my home at 4836 Hargett Lane Frederick MD shows only 2 acres of land and that seems to be impacting the estimate numbers. We have a total of 14.3 acres, across…

Is your home listed in the MLS by an agent? That's where Trulia picks up the info. It can sometimes take up to 72 hrs for it to update.

Your agent may need to log into their account to claim the listing and update it. ... more

Hi there,

As an agent, I've had to ask the same question of Trulia and below is what I found:

The MRIS (our local MLS service) no longer uploads directly to Trulia. They stopped their relationship about 2 years ago. Zillow also no longer has a relationship with MRIS as of January this year. (Zillow is typically 2 months to 2 years out of date on most of their information anyway, so don't believe most of what you find there)

If your brokerage does not have an automatic feed to Trulia (a few of the larger nat'l companies do through their franchise) then your agent has two choices. Upload directly (with this option they can actually put more photos in than the MLS allows) or, if they have a Trulia account, then they can call customer service and have them add it from on request.

The market has changed since this question was posted. Many of my recent buyers understand that when they take a loss on there sale, they will get a better savings in there move up. Hopefully that is the case for you.

These companies will not offer you close to comps, and the reason for this is so they can make a profit when they go to re-sell the property. Typically you can expect 33% below the value of what the market really is. ... more

Hi Jim
As others have said, in order to help you determine market value of your home, we would need an address.
Some areas in Frederick seem to have plateaued for the moment. Probably because the short sales and foreclosures are least for now. You may be in such a neighborhood.
As with everyone else, I am happy to help you determine the current value. Just let me know if you would like our help

You need a good buyer's agent. He/she should be able to clear that right up for you. And you don't pay anything for their service. We work for you, but we get paid by the seller. I'd be happy to discuss it with you. Call me at (443) 789-6712. ... more

They probabily used a lease back. Where they sell the house and the buyer and seller agree on an amount of time they can lease the house, at what price they will pay and what condition the house will be left. There really isnt any other way to get paid and stay in a house without the new buyer booting you out. Most people wont close on a house unless it is vacant at closing unless prior arrangements are made. This is probabily what they have used. hope this helps... ... more
