I sold my co-op privately after listing it via Postlets.com and would like to remove it from Trulia or at least mark it as sold. I tried going into Postlets.com, but it's still showing up…

That is because Trulia is an agent only site at this time. They block for sale by owner listings even if it says it will syndicate from sites like Postlets.com. You will have to refresh directly from Postlets.

The rules appear to be different in each neighborhood. It would be best to check with your local authorities to be sure. Good Luck

I live in Jackson also, and I can tell you that most homes here with at least 2 full baths do sell faster. Since you already have a half bath up there , it shouldn't be that great an expense and you should be able to reap the rewards of a higher selling price than a home with just 1.5 baths. When you are finished with your improvements please feel free to contact me. I would welcome the opportunity to see your home and discuss my sales strategy to assure you sell it at the highest price in today's market.

If it is you are the seller of the home and you are aware of a leak that caused damage even after you are in contract you are still responsible to repair the damage before the closing so just have it repaired. ... more

If you call the Jackson Twp Municipal Utilities Authority and give them the address, they will be able to tell you how far the nearest hydrant is.

Separate value is 50/50 - In my area a M/D property can only regain that status if new owner applies for it. Also, in some areas that may decrease the value of the home as many potential owners would rather have the garage. ... more

Before thinking of letting go of the home, try the first alternative of having a short sale. Check first the value of your home in the neighborhood. And if you think the value is much less than what you owe, call your lender and check if they have a Loan Modification Program you can work out with them. For sure someone from your lender can guide you through it if ever they have one. Normally they have a website that you can visit and make you more confident in your decisions. If you can not be approved of the Loan Modification if ever they offer it, that's the time you have to consider Short Sale.

At this point, you have to recognize at what stage you are in if ever you already defaulted in your payments. Ask for professional advice about your tax and credit ramifications when doing a short sale. For sure a professional can point you on the right direction if you decide on doing a Short Sale.

There are other options, you can visit government websites like www.makinghomeaffordable.gov and decide for yourself if Short Sale is the right thing to do.

Jeanne Feenick answered:
Hi Kim, assuming that your agents did a good job in positioning your property among the agent and buyer community - and most of that exposure comes online today - then as hard as it is to accept, price is likely still the issue. Perhaps the timing of your reductions were off - sometimes pricing is not hugely off, just enough to not get the buyer at various points along the sales spectrum. I had a seller I was helping that would agree to pricing recommendation but would delay that decision so that the price was no longer correct. Ultimately this pattern of delaying pricing moves resulted in a further deterioration of value and a loss of interest in the market, and as a result, no sale.

If you decide to try again, my advice is this - price it right from the start. The greatest interest for any listed property comes early on - in fact, interest falls dramatically after the 60 day mark - even after 45 days.

Good luck to you!

Hi Joan.

Good question but also a very subjective one, in my opinion. I would advise that you go with an agent that you can trust (or at least one that appears trustworthy). Interview several agents and ask each of them what they can offer you in terms of selling your home. Find out their marketing strategies, level of communication with the homeowner and ability to "play ball". And please, beware of those who are willing to sell you the moon.

Best of Luck!
And please, let us know how it works out for you!

Maggie Quinn answered:
Call your listing agent ask for a meeting in your home have your agent bring their marketing plan so that you can be shown what has been done in the last 30 days to market your home to buyers.
Have your agent bring all stats for similar properties for the last 30 days such as new listings, price reductions, under contract,closed, expired, etc:
If your listing does not have professional looking photos ask why and get them done.

Now all that being said... If your home is not showroom ready meaning clean, clutter free, odor free,all repairs done and animal & family free (for showings) and price according to "closed" properties that have as close as possible stats as your proptery, then no amount of marketing will get the masses (buyers) to show up at your door for a walk thru. Why would any buyer take the time to look at a house that is cluttered, dirty, smelly, needing repairs and over priced... in todays buyers market... would you? Don't get me wrong I'm not saying that's your house I'm just giving you an example.

P.S.
did you know in buyers lingo the definition of small repairs means big money and major repairs mean total remodel. Did you also know that when a buyer doesn't see interior pictures they automatically assume the house must be a dump.

My guess is if you address these issues everything else will fall into place.

Good Luck
