You can't rely on Trulia for accurate information. Trulia is an advertising website. Agents know the facts! To get the facts, contact a local agent - by using the tab at the top of the page.

Good luck!

Stage and fix up the house so it is perfect, take great photographs, make a great brochure, get a 1 year home warranty, hold open houses, find out what buyers do not like about it so you can correct it, tell thousands of people about it, negotiate so you do not lose your buyer and price it right at the start. ... more

My very brief tutorial:

In a short sale, the owner still owns the property. They are selling it for less than they owe their lender, and cannot come up with the difference.
(for example, they're selling for $100,000, and they still owe the bank $140,000).

so once they get a buyer, the bank has to decide if they're willing to take the loss, and release the borrower from the debt. That process is anything but short, and can take anywhere from 30 days to 6 months to get an answer from the bank. And at the end of that time, the answer could be "no".

A 620 score or higher would be an average score, but keep in mind there are exception for lower scores. For example, some people may have lost a home because of lay off and need to lease a home until they reestablish themselves and save money. Landlords have different qualifications. ... more

Suzanne Hamilton answered:
All signs are that yes - it will be similar to last year. The banks are putting properties out at a small quantity at a time to avoid crashing the market and artificially increases prices. If more sellers get in the market, that could change.

Buyers in multiple offers all the time is not the best way. I agree. We need more inventory.

Homewood traditionally is a very stable community with a good mix of demographics. As mentioned, the home sale percentage is not high when you compare it to other nearby areas. A great source for neighborhood information is I have also included a link to my website which has a video of information about Homewood. Hope it helps! I would love to share more insight about the area with you.
