Diane Christner answered:
Most likely the local MLS service does not syndicate listings to sites such as trulia
your agent failed to checkmark the correct box to share your listing with these syndicated sites when the listing was put into the MLS.

Either way, your listing can still be manually inputted to trulia by your listing agent, ask him or her to do so.

Your best bet is to go to the local police department and ask them for a print out of an area.
This will be the most accurate. I have found many of these 3rd party sites to be inaccurate.
Police department may charge a nominal fee, but its worth it

Good Luck

You need to contact the old agent to remove from MLS. As far as the listing showing up on Trulia or similar sites, you need to set up an auto feed or add it manually. Your profile does have to be a licensed agent or broker to list homes here though ... more

It depends on the kind of homeowners insurance that you have. I think that it is a great idea for all homeowners to have homeowners insurance. You can never know what will happen in life and it is best to be prepared. You can talk with your insurance provider to learn more about what your insurance will be like. Best of luck! ... more

Henry L Kaplan answered:
In my many years in Real Estate, one of the top 10 best advise I could give is use a local lender. In particular, a person you can "physically" get in front of, or if necessary, camp outside their office and wait for them, for as long as it takes! There's nothing worse than using a "phone person" who can simply ignore your call or pass you on virtually. Belly to Belly with your loan officer is definitely a TOP 10!!

I don't know anyplace that has information that detailed. If you contact a Realtor they can tell you home many days a rental is on the market and this will tell you the demand.

Dear Eric

It is always best to check with the public authorities on crime stats etc.

Check with the local police and county to get more details.

Scott Godzyk answered:
With a short sale NEVER base an offer on the asking price. You need to assess what the home is worth and base your offer on that less any needed repairs. the bank will have an appraisal completed and most likely will not be approving any offers much below market value as values increase across the country ... more

Tom Priester answered:

There are a number of market conditions that are affecting prices throughout the Palm Beach County area. First, keep in mind that the valuation placed on a property by the county assessor for tax purposes is not the same as market value and those two valuations can vary quite a bit. For instance we have had two sales in the Courtyards over the past 6 months; one sold for $135,000 which is about 123% of the county valuation and the other sold for $169,000 or about 154% of its county valuation. As with any development condition, location, features and seller motivation will also be important factors when determining what the property can be purchased for.

Today's market has been red hot but the recent meteoric rise in interest rates will certainly have an effect moving forward if they do not pull back or at least stop rising. In today's market we see many overpriced listings as sellers hear that the good old days are back and price are rising. That being said there are 4 other homes under contract in the Courtyards that have list prices between $129,900 and $199,900. There are three active listings all priced well above what the market has been doing so sellers are probably unrealistic and not too motivated. Two are listed at $224,900 and $245,000 which are 32% and 44% higher that the highest priced recent sale and things just aren't moving quite that fast. One is priced at 215% of county valuation and the other is at 197% which are both way above the community numbers.

Whether you are looking solely in Lake Worth or just your perfect home in the Florida sun you are best suited to be working with a Realtor® who is looking out for your best interests in this constantly changing market. A very clear description of your specific requirements is the best place to start and if I can be of service to you and your family I would appreciate the opportunity to be one of the buyers agents you may choose to interview. We cover the area and are experts in finding our clients that "needle in the haystack.

Best of luck and if I can offer anything additional please let me know.

Always at Your Service,

Jon Faust answered:
There are different types of foreclosure sales, most are available to the public through the Multiple Listing Service and have a 7 to 14 day period when first listed during which only "owner occupant" buyers may bid on the property. After this it is opened up to investors. The system is not perfect but there are rules in place to make it more "fair" so that large investment groups etc do not benefit of the tough times many individuals are having. Check out our site at or e-mail us directly at with your wishlist and we'll be happy to send you a detailed report of available propeties matching your criteria!
