UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi Linda,

If you're viewing your home on Trulia, you're most likely viewing an archived listing of your home from the MLS.

The only way to get your FSBO home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, but you could also pay for what's called a flat fee listing service if you want to sell by owner (generally not a good idea).

We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you.

Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

Deborah Conti-Pinnacle Realty answered:
Brank Lake, Lake Luzerne & Schroon Lake are not at all what Lake George is, a major resort town. Thousands flock to the Lake George community each year for the beautiful lake and mountains. Yes, Brank Lake has that, but the pubic beach area is very small in Brant Lake and there is no comparison to Lake George's beaches. In saying that, the average listing price in Lake George is over $700,000.00 on the lake! It takes a local resident and agent to really know the values of Lake George properties. So, if you are thinking about selling in Lake George, call a local resident/agent! Deb Conti, at (518) 495-0021, Pinnacle Realty! ... more

Dear Elle

I live in the Bronx and love it here. I feel that NYC is one of the best place to live regardless of which of the five boros you live in. You have access to great people, public transportation, good food and all the quiet that you are looking. I do understand your concern about living in a big city. But areas such as Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Westchester County offer just that access to the City and the ability to live in small neighborhoods. This just my opinion, I am sure you are going to get opinions for other areas as well.

Good luck.

Angie Mead answered:
Hi Karen,
When you say split, I presume you're referring to subdividing? First, you will need to contact the town zoning office in which the property is located (have your tax map # handy). They will be able to tell you what the minimum requirements are for subdividing/and if it is even possible. If it is indeed possible, you will want a survey done showing your proposed new lot lines. After that, you will need to attend the towns planning board or zoning board meeting in order for your subdivision to be approved. These meetings are often times only once a month, and you will need to get your name on the agenda.
I am located in the Southern Adirondacks (Chestertown/Brant Lake area). If I can be of any further help, please let me know.

Paul McIntyre answered:
In my market sellers generally price their homes about 5% above market value, so any bid coming in at 95% of asking price is very acceptable.

Beyond that, it is truly an individual decision. When I'm representing my buyers I research the property to get a rough idea of how much is likely owed on the property, and then see what other information the listing agent is willing to provide (what is the seller's motivation, are they able to provide financing, etc.). This leads me to a likely sale price.

I can also tell you that in my market an offer 20% below asking price is likely to be totally ignored. What's happening in your area may be entirely different.

Gail Gladstone answered:
I am a commercial Realtor. An Associate Broker is a Broker who does not own their own agency, but works under another broker. What they share is the extra experience and extra education.

SRES is Senior Real Estate Specialist. The only ASR I have ever heard of is text to voice recognition called automatic speech recognition.

CCIM is the highest commercial designation possible at this is like a Master's Degree. They should be a member of the National Association of Realtors (they answer to a higher power).

They should be advertising your property on the local Multiple Listing Service,,, Landnet, co-star, and any other commercial sites they can find. Newspapers are no longer a good source; however, if your property is a specialty property that would be appropriate, for instance, to a restaurant...they should be looking at trade industry rags and contacting reps from national chains.

You might ask for reference letters, names and numbers of past clients you can call...A WRITTEN MARKETING PLAN...and trust your gut.
