The buyer before me backed out as well for the same reason. The seller has not signed the release but the home is on the market. Is this legal?

hi
how can you search the map for house rentals. I like how you can see the crime in the different areas. But it only seems to works if you were looking to buy a home.

thanks

Hello Mom,
If you are selling your home and you are using a realtor, they need to request an Approval letter and Proof of Funds from them. If you are not using a realtor, then you as the seller have the right to request that from them. Make sure it is not a Pre-qualification letter. Ask for a DU approval which is a Desktop Underwriting approval meaning is has gone through the underwriter. Also the Proof of Funds is important because to make sure they have enough money for the down payment and for the closing cost. Hope this helped.

The buyers and sellers attorney will still handle the process as if there was a bank. The only difference will be time, a few less steps (because you don't need to worry about appraisals and mortgage commitments) and you will most likely close at the sellers attorneys office instead of the bank. ... more

Keep in mind that scams do exist and perhaps you may have stumbled upon one. According to MLS the property is available for sale only, not rent. For available area rentals, check www.mlsli.com If you choose not to work with an agent, always verify ownership before exchanging any money/personal information.... ... more

I live and work in Huntington, so please disregard the well meaning but inacurate advice below. Huntington allows what are called "Accessory Apartments". These are legal apartments within owner occupied homes. You do need to apply for a permit and there are regulations that apply. Please let me know if you need further information.

Huntington Beach and Centerport are in Harborfields School District. School district, proximity to the water as well as two vibrant villages (Northport and Huntington) make this area's staying power steady...very. Sales have been consistent in this area, and like all areas, if the price is right in its reflection of a property's condition and location, then the property will sell. Centerport and Huntington Beach is a lifestyle; it is a hidden gem and offers homes in all price points. Re Snow removal...bottom line the kids need to get to school and taxpayers to work, so the respective transportation authorities that run the schools are out very early, on the roads, on days of storms to assess the roads' viability and safety. The buses run more days than not. Homes in this area should appreciate for those reasons I stated earlier; that is as long as we don't repeat the debacle of 6 years ago. I'd gladly help you in your search as I have a firm grasp on this area. Risa ... more

Terry McCarley answered:
My question is regarding the pricing. Does the asking price reflect market value or is it overpriced? If the comps provided by your Realtor® show it is priced right look at everything else including curb appeal, condition etc...If it is overpriced and you aren't willing to reduce the price you might as well not put it back on the market as nobody is going to pay more than the home is worth. ... more

Jerry Cibulski answered:
There are many options to help create buyer interest. The successful sale of a home is based on price, home, location and marketing. Make the home approachable. The real estate agents in your market are some of the best network resources. They will be able to bring in the buyers they are working with in this segment of the market. You also have the home buyers looking on the internet. The photos are the most important piece to the home shopping. They are making decisions based on the pictures so you want to be sure the house is showing your best features. The price of the home will also attract the buyers and they will compare the features of your home to others with similar features. Make sure you are priced in the right segment. It is not just neighborhoods that the home buyers are comparing. ... more

Looking for a rental property can be much easier than you may think.

I would be happy to provide you with a FREE account on Listing Book so that you can easily control your own search with very little time invested.

LIsting Book connects to the Multiple Listing Service and will tell you, based on your search criteria, what is on the market; will notify you immediately when something new comes on the market and will also let you know if a property out of your $ zone has a price reduction into your search criteria.

Not only is it free, Listing Book does not obligate you to any one Realtor; work with whom you choose.
I will need very little information; first & last name, email address, price range. You can enter the rest of the information yourself when you log into your account.

Lisa Collet answered:
It looks like you may have already been successful with getting the photos down (as at the time of my reply there were no pictures except for a google map of the home). The images may have dropped off automatically since your posting, or you may have worked out the details since you posted.

If not I usually suggest the following options:
1. contact your listing agent, they may be able to log in and remove extra images.
2. I would suggest to contact Trulia. There are a couple of ways to do this, you can click "More" on the listings submenu and then "report an error". Or if needed, contact Trulia via their Customer Service team either by email at customerservice@trulia.com, by phone at 888-466-3501 Monday - Friday 7am to 4pm PST, or via the link http://www.trulia.com/help/ask .
3. Last but not least, edit the home fact. To do this log into your Trulia account then go to your home's listing and under "edit the home" choose "claim this home" "select your name from the list and then try to edit the details for the home.

Best of Luck to you!
