You can change the pictures on any home that you've claimed. Go to Account --> Listings and select "Add More Photos" under the one that you'd like to edit. Then you can remove and change photos that you'd like to edit.

If you have more trouble, I'd suggest using the Trulia Help Desk -- They have great customer service!

Best of luck!

In my area rentals are moving well. Your challenge will be finding a good tenant. Working with an agent will add a vetting process and support in setting price, exposing the listing, evaluating prospective tenants and negotiating a fair deal. It is not uncommon for homes that are not selling to add a rental listing to see if you can get success on that front. I'd suggest you discuss with your current listing agent.

Good luck to you,

I also agree with the others but in this market, unless the home is truly unique or an obviously under priced home, my experience is 2 to 3 showings. I will add that the 2nd showing may not occur right away and could happen a few weeks later. What's important for any Seller to remember is that they should have their home priced better than the competition. If you haven't looked at your competition then you are at a disadvantage since the BUYERS HAVE. Successful Sellers were smart when it came to price and they achieved the goal of a closing. ... more

I hope your question gets answered by Trulia. It looks like they have listed the sale date as the recorded date as well. However, your public tax record indicate the sale date of 12/28/2005 correctly. Hope this helps. ... more

Hi Galabell,
When you meet with Realtors in your area, they will let you know what percentage commission they will charge and yes commissions are not set in stone, they are negotiable....
More important than the exact commission amount is how your rapport is with the agent, your trust, how straightforward he/she is with you about the value of your current home in today's market, based on recent similar home sales (adjusted to the upgrades or lack thereof of your home) and letting you know about those homes that are currently on the market, representing your competion.

When talking with your agent, you should feel that he/she is experienced, offers you good insight into the Hendersonville market and let's you know ahead of time, what kind of advertising and marketing they will do in order to promote showings of your home, and consequently leading to offers!

And just a little insight for you.... When you sign the listing agreement with your listing agent/Brokerage for a certain fixed % of sale price as commission, you must understand that this percentage is split several ways, and your listing agent does NOT get the entire amount!
At least in most cases the commission gets split between the brokerage of the listing agent and the brokerage of the buyers agent (the agent who brings the buyer who signs the contract), and after that
each agent with his/her own brokerage company has another split of commission... I thought this may just explain it a little, although since you are a home buyer you may know about that already.

I suggest you have a Realtor or two come to your property, give you a market evaluation and at that occasion you can ask all your questions, including the commission...

Good luck to you!
