Hi there,

This would be a better question for the agent of a particular property, as there is no standard process of taking photos for listings on Trulia.

If you find a property photo which you deem to be misleading, I recommend that you contact the agent directly or flag the property as fraudulent on Trulia.

Thanks for the question,

The prices that come from Trulia, Zillow, or any of the real estate sites are computer generated. These estimates are not usually very accurate at all, since they do not take into account the features and uniqueness of your home compared to similar homes in your area. For a good estimate you should contact a realtor and they can provide you with a CMA (comparable market analysis). They will look at local similar homes that have sold and take into account of the features that your home offers and make adjustments accordingly to come up with a recommended price range for your home. I am a local realtor, and I would be happy to provide you with a free market analysis. You may reach me on my cell (717-599-0076) with any additional questions or to schedule a meeting. I would be happy to assist you!

Paul B. Lorenzetti answered:
Hello Rich,
As a Realtor and Broker for quite a few years, I would not show homes to anyone without some type of pre approval for a loan. In almost all circumstances in Lebanon, if someone is interested in bringing a contract they must have approval letter to go with the offer. If you don't then an offer is not going to be accepted until you get approval which leaves the door open for another offer to come in in the meantime. That just wastes a lot of time for all concerned. I realize that you have your home on the market, but until it is under contract, it does not make you any more qualified than anyone else. You could write a contingency offer showing your home on the market but you should still have a pre qualification letter from a lender.
I highly recommend that you contact a lender and get this done. It does not take very long and most lenders can get a letter out that would be conditional upon you selling your home.
