Trulia is not a real estate company. You need to hire your own agent/brokerage to sell your home. Your agent will list it in the local MLS. (if they even work with mobile homes). then through listing IDX (information data exchange) the MLS data gets transferred here (and on other sites like Zillow, Realtor.com, etc.) ... more

Sorry, FL law regarding homesteading is that you must own the property before 01/01/2017 in order to apply for a homestead exemption for the 2017 tax year. If you close in January of 2017 you can go ahead and file for a homestead exemption -- but it won't go into effect until the 2018 tax year. ... more

The person whose name is on the deed is responsible for taxes.

Normally you charge enough in rent to cover all your costs. (Including taxes)

Diane Christner answered:
When you interviewed listing agents, did you ask any of the following questions:
How long have you been selling real estate?
Are you a full time or part time agent?
What marketing plan do you have for selling my home?
Do you have your own website? (Look at their site, see how homes are being marketed.)
What specific plans do you have for marketing my home?
What list price do you suggest for my home? What documentation do you have to support that list price?

In general, a marketing plan should include:
1) take at least 20 quality photos of your property, inside and out, that highlight the best features of your home
2) post those photos to various Internet real estate sites (plus social media sites), with a well thought out description of your home that invites buyers to come see your home, not merely list details such as 3 bdrm, 2 baths, etc.
3) set up a virtual tour of your home if it warrants it
4) set up at least one agent/broker open house, plus as least 1 or 2 public open houses if your home warrants it
5) advertise your home in the local newspaper if it's customary in your area
6) direct mailings to your neighborhood regarding your home for sale
7) feedback on showings -- did your agents ask other agents who have shown your home about what the buyers and agent thought of your home? Honest feedback on showing condition and price?
8) answer any buyer or agent inquiries regarding your home for sale quickly, in a helpful manner. You may be surprised at the number of agents that ignore yard sign calls by potential buyers.

Generally a home is sold through a variety of marketing tactics.

Last but not least, is your agent keeping you updated on changes to your local market, what homes are selling and at what prices?

It may be time to have a sit down meeting with your agent to go over your expectations for marketing and aspects where they are not being met. Your agent may not realize you have concerns unless you tell him.

Absolutely. It's a common thing for agents to contact expired listings in an effort to see if the owner wants to try to sell again using a different agent. For some agents, working expired listings is a routine activity. ... more

You can call your local city and report properties that are un-kept.
They will send someone to document it and send citations.

Hi Bernie,
Hopefully you have a Realtor representing your sale to go through those emails. The experience of a Realtor will be able to know which email requests are scams and which are real buyers.

Good Luck

Jacquie Yekmalian answered:
Hoa is required to give reason for denial in writing. If you feel the reason is not justified you have many city/county legal avenues that you can hire. There are many reasons a hoa can deny a buyer. Some reasons can be credit, criminal and bankruptcy. However reviewing their docs and Florida statues and talking to an attorney may favor on your side. You need to find out why and then do your homework.

Good Luck
