Usually listings can take up to 48 hours to post as they are reviewed. I would alos only load a few photos at a time and save frequently or they may not save do to size.

Hello Heather,

Well, putting a flyer in your yard showing your home is a good thing and offering a mortgage group to get the buyer pre qualified for financing is as well ...
But, I would not allow any other homes to be shown anywhere on that flyer ... that is just unacceptable.

I hope you can negotiate this with your agent.

Dear Trulia Jacksonville:

Unfortunately from a landlords point of view, you are still locked into the lease. What I would suggest in this case, is speak with the landlord and see if he would allow you to do a tenant replacement. What this would do is have a new tenant move into the property and they will start their own new lease. This will absolve you from your current lease once they move in. Only catch with this is you are typically reponsible until a new tenant is found and most landlords are not too inclined to do the search for you as you will be continuing to pay your rent until this new tenant is found; so in these cases, you are going to most likely be reponsible to find this new tenant. Good luck with your situation. ... more

Most people like to attend for the purpose of simply being present for the inspection process and the opportunity to get to know the property themselves. It's fairly common for the seller to not be present but buyers are almost always on site during this process.

From a buyer's perspective, I can't imagine any advantage a customer would gain by not being present......

Good luxdk,

Gary, I actually drove the neighborhoods in that area last night, as we are looking to buy in Jacksonville. There are many nice older homes that are well maintained, and a few that need to be take care of. The streets seemed quiet to me. We would not hesitate to move to the area. ... more

Unfortunately, this site does not allow for sale by owner posts, you can however try blogging about your property; if and when you do list with an agent, he/she can post it for you, just ask; or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into the site. ... more

That is a very interesting question and if I answered it, I could lose my license. We are not allowed by the Texas Real Estate Commission to "steer" people. We can take the criteria you give us and match that up as
best we can with the open MLS listings. You choose those you wish to preview and we can set up appointments to preview. If there is something about the area or neighborhood that you do not like, then we go on to the next listing until you find the ideal home in the best possible area that suits you and your family.
I would be very happy to assist you with your search for "just the right property" for you. Please call or email me and we can take it from there.
I look forward to meeting you and assisting you in your search. I have 10 years of experience and also have over 30 listings personally on the MLS.
