One would understandably need to know in advance if the condition is poor but reasonable, and would require some updating but not extensive or major.

Unfortunately, there is nothing short about a short sale. I've had them approved in just a few weeks, but 60, 90 or more days is more common. The seller's lender must approve the hardship, financial circumstances and they will also determine market value of the house. ... more

Hi Victoria,

Trulia doesn't allow FSBO homes listed manually. You would have to pay a premium for a flat fee listing service. The NAR states that FSBO homes typically sell for an average of $184,000 compared to agent assisted homes at $230,000. That's a big difference! So selling with an agent will usually get you more money in the end, and it will sell faster with less hassle on you.

We created our service for home sellers looking for the best deal possible. Agents will compete against each other to earn your listing, so you're more likely to receive a great commission rate. You'll also be able to compare agents so you can select the best agent possible! There's no risk to try us out, and it's completely free for you!

Good luck!

Lisa Palermo answered:
good evening kimberly..
at this time we have reached a 'soft' bottom to the market..
there are still additional foreclosures that will soon be trickling into the mix of available
inventory.. this will keep prices low for awhile before you will see an increase in value..

ti be clear on your question.. you are trying to sell your condo and want to know if
your buyer can purchase with an fha loan..?
it will depend on your board's requirements.. and loan to value stats..
also, your board has a debt to income ratio that must be met..
call me..
you are local to my area.

Ronald & Agnes Maginniss answered:
Time on the Market is depending upon price & location. It is difficult to pinpoint a time. Remember the market is still a buyers market and if a home is priced correctly and the marketing is geared to the type of buyer your home has then there will be a shorter time.
Looking for a home should be done thru a Realtor who can get pertainent information for your criteria. It is not easy to just say a $ amount.

Wow Ralph did a lot of work there.

I have a question for you Tut - why do you want to know?

Are you thinking of selling your home and want this information to price your home right?

Price is ONE element of selling a home. Just keep that in mind.

Jerry Cibulski answered:
There are many ways to find out the experience level and production volume an agent has with a little bit of internet searching. You can go to the website of the firm the agent is working with. Review the profile page of that agent and see how many listings they have for sale, what the agents profile shows, review how many sales the agent has represented for the listing side of the transaction.
This should review how many years they have been in the business and look for company awards. The experienced agents should have a history of production and service awards. You can also google the agents name and review what websites they link with.
Interview the agent and ask them questions and have them show you what they have accomplished in the buisiness.
