Many buyer do not know what the market is like. I like to educate all my new buyers that there is a shortage of homes for sale and that most new listings can sell in days. Some in hours. Often a buyer who has not chosen a good listing agent, learns this the hard way when they lose a home they loved. ... more

I apologize we have false foreclosure information listed on our home details page. This data is provided to us from Zillow foreclosures and we currently do not have the ability to edit or remove the information that they are sending us.

Please be advised that I have created a ticket to Zillow Consumer Care to request the removal of the foreclosure status from your property. Once the status is removed from Zillow, it will automatically update to Trulia after 24-48 hours.

The image you are seeing on your property page is provided to us from Google images of which we do not have the ability to edit or remove. My recommendation would be to contact Google to request they blur out your photo and home photo. Please feel free to use these steps:

How to get your property blurred:
1. On your Trulia Property Page, click 'View Map'.
2. Click 'Street View'.
3. Click 'Report a problem' found on the bottom right of the photo.
4. Fill out the form.
5. Click Submit.

Thank you for using Trulia!

there are many places that will buy your place, but probably not for what you want to sell it for, they are in the business of reselling, so skip the middle man and sell it yourself. Talk to at least 3 different agencies and get a market analysis. And then go to look at which homes would be closest to yours in competition. Look at what they are actually selling at not asking to get a realistic picture. no home is perfect. not all basements finished. again how it looks is primary, clean, neutral, uncluttered and loved, never underestimate a fresh coat of white paint. Just like selling a used car, you would wash and wax first and clean out the trunk, but you don't have to replace everything, leave the upgrades or projects to your buyer, most of all have an attorney or agent that represents your interest ... more

Diane Christner answered:
A good real estate agent is very familiar with the neighborhoods where he or she shows properties. But because of the Fair Housing Act, the agent can't legally share all of that information with you. Many customers ask about "safe" neighborhoods but the definition of safe is subjective, your definition of safe may not be the same as another person's, and answering questions about "safe" neighborhoods may actually put us agents in violation of the Fair Housing laws as it may pinpoint a certain class of people. That's why we real estate agents should not be commenting on safe neighborhood questions other than to point you towards local police/sheriff offices for statistics or demographic web sites that track crime statistics such as ... more

Churches and schools are trying to help, but it would help equally I believe to have counseling programs for the parents/families to better understand how to survive and cope with the stress of changing communities.38115 is so far above the national average with violent and non-violent crime that more needs to be done in many areas. The family unit needs to be stronger so it can sustain during the tough times.

The stress around unemployment, keeping up with your bills, keeping your kids safe and getting them on the right track for their future is overwhelming for many - also living in fear not knowing if it is safe to go outside like in the past. As a community, the churches could do more to help in this regard which may have a positive effect on the crime rate over time.

I didn't see your comment about the roof. Roofs are typically the one item visually that will scare the stuffing out of a buyer. They expect the roof to have life in it...the FHA appraiser might even make it an item of interest in any appraisal. New roofs don't sell houses...but bad roofs can sure keep them from selling. Do it and take your deduction, even if you have to depreciate it. Also...Memphis can be a tricky it's tough to do that from Hawaii. ... more

You have to register with all the banks & asset management company's. It is very time consuming & some do charge. I did get one referral(not an REO) from one of the web sites that I was registered on. Now that I look back I think my time would have been better spent on anything else. That is a very difficult field to break into. You really have to have some good contacts. Good luck to you ... more
