Trulia receive feeds from regional MLS/boards of Realtors, and they display only what is input by the listing agent. If you're serious about buying a home, hire an exclusive buyer agent to represent you.

I have found that well price condos move fast. Also my
first time home buyers seem to gravitate towards condos because they are the only options in town in their lower price range. Hope this helps! ... more

As for your second question, "how do we know which properties accepts pets"...
If you work with an Agent, they can send you the full detailed listing including the pet preference. Most landlords will either mark no pets allowed (which is usually non-negotiable) or pets are okay. Some landlords ask for only cats or small dogs. Having, I 'm assuming, a small Shitzu dog should help you with landlords that are on the fence about pets. Hope this helps!

Is your home listed for SALE with a Realtor? If so, you need to contact him/her. If you're just looking at the public records info, then my question is...why do you need this changed? Sometimes the public records data is incorrect for various reasons. For example, maybe the owner finished a basement or added bedrooms or baths without permits. If that's the case you're opening up a can of worms. Or maybe it's a typographical error. In any case, you can contact your county assessor and bring the errors to their attention. BUT...guess what?! You may get a nice tax increase! (i.e. if you're now reporting more SF, or more BR/BA than they previously had on record). Again...I'd ask yourself why you want to do this, and figure out what the ramifications will be.

FYI -- You're posting a question on a public website that pulls data from different sources. It is notoriously inaccurate. Nobody at Trulia is going to care if your information is incorrect. You should try and figure out where the inaccurate data is coming from address it at the source. Good luck!

Shelly,

Rental scams are common here and on any site that allows the general public to post. Please be very cautious with deals that seem too good to be true. NEVER send money expecting keys back by mail. You can search the address in any search engine to see how the homes are advertised elsewhere. If one listing is much cheaper than other places, it's likely a scam.

Read the scam warning Trulia posts. I've attached a link to it below.

When you find a questionable listing please go to the More button on the listing and then hit the FLAG button on the listing page to warn Trulia and others or email it to Rentalfraud@Trulia.com.

Hi Draak

What has been not explained is how much are you putting down?

If 20%, then Deb right on.

Juan, since you're new to Trulia, you might want to read the Community guidelines located at the bottom of the page,

This is the Q&A section meant for real questions seeking real answers.

Adding a question mark at the end of a sentence doesn't make it a question, but, in any event, your topic about renting vs buying is better served by writing a blog about it.

Blogging would be a more appropriate place for this.....not the Q&A section.

Were you able to find a suitable agent to work with at a flat fee or hourly rate? I have never heard of that being done (since buyer's agents are paid % by the seller), but am very curious if it is being done. ... more

Kim,

do you have an address for a specific home you are concerned about? As you can see by many of the answers here, there are several cases where a home is physically in Port Chester (one town) while it has an address in Greenwich (another town). That SHOULD be clearly disclosed by the listing agent.

Best,

Scott

Stevens Kencel Group answered:
This is a loaded question that has been technically answered by David, though there are many houses that have been on much much longer and have been in and out of the MLS system so they do not show as long of a "days on market" number. If you are looking for a general number, David's "154" is spot on. If you are more interested because you have a house in a specific price point, then I would ask for that price point. I'd be confident in stating that certain price points (especially under $3m) can move much faster than higher price points.

my 2 cents

Best,

Scott

Mrs. Krock,

Just checking in. Were you able to track down the information you needed on Morgan Avenue? While it looks like Laura has the right info, I'm still not sure of the address. I'm in town hall every couple days and would be happy to do a little more digging if you need.

Best,

Scott

The federal reserve stated they will keep all their rates the same through the end of the year. So barring any additional issues rates should remain flat.

It depends on what price range you are looking in. Different price ranges and different area within Greenwich show different trends.
