If you are selling For Sale By Owner you won't be able to edit your listing on Trulia. While Zillow allows FSBO's, the end result is they end up here without users having control over their listing. If you have an agent, they can create an agent profile and make revisions.

Good luck!

You are working with a Realtor are you not, because you have asked other contract related questions. Your Realtor should be able to connect with the lender, or the loan officer and find out, or find out from the Buyers Agent why the extension is needed.

Remember if you have a buyer, and it is only a question of time, paper work or just bank delays,
you want to keep your buyer, it is easier to work with an existing buyer/contract than finding a new one and go through similar obstacles down the road.

You should discuss your options with either your real estate attorney if you involved one, which would have been a very recommendable decision, or at least with your listing agent, your Realtor, he or she should be able to give you some information and/ or advice on this ..... as they know the circumstances, the contract terms etc.
Hope this helps

They can ask, its called negotiating....
You do not have to accept it, but you could lose the sale, you can also offer a revised amount,
and depending on the sale price and whether it will appraise out, you may add it to the sale price
and then return it to the buyer for payment of closing costs at the closing table, but careful.

You should get some input and suggestions from your Realtor, you are working with one are you not?

Good luck to you.

Hope this helps...

I agree with Lana, below - the appraisal is likely to be lower at this time. I am a member of the RMLS which serves the Eugene area as well as the WVMLS serving the Willamette Valley if you would like a free market analysis to give you an idea what's been going on in the market. Keep in mind, however a market analysis is not and cannot be intended as an appraisal. ... more

Edith Karoline Jasser answered:
I am wondering if a real estate was involved in the entire real estate contract? If so then they the attorneys on both sides would have to have to sign off on the agreements of what is and is not included in the offer. If a property is sold as is....... and remember we do not see the actual agreement, so there could be other clauses involved that we do not know anything about..... it is the
buyers and the buyers Realtor's obligation to have all inspections done during a specific time period after having agreed on a purchase price, then if the inspections indicate larger problems than the
buyer expected the buyer can get out of the contract. Some buyers do ask to have inspections done
before they offer a price on an as is property, and sometimes after having paid for the inspections
decide that they are not interested anymore, or that they feel ok with the few items found during inspection and offer a reasonable purchase price taking the necessary repairs into consideration.

So since we do not know how it all went down with your sales contract and the negotiations YOU
MUST discuss all the terms and hopefully all written and signed off on by both parties agreements,
you can talk to the managing broker of your listing agent's office, or you can go straight to a real
estate attorney....

Good Luck to you

Hi Dayna,

As many have mentioned already, Trulia doesn't accept listings that are For Sale By Home Owner. If you happen to be a Real Estate Pro and just don't identify yourself correctly on your Trulia profile, follow these instructions.

Your listings may already be live on Trulia via a feed from your broker, MLS or another listing web site. Click the My Listings section of your account and follow the prompt to find your listings on Trulia.

If your listings are not found, you will be directed to to submit them to us manually. The process is quick and easy and your listings will appear live on Trulia within one hour.

Hope that helps!
