UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi Julie,

The only way to get your home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, so hiring an agent is the easiest way, 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 at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

Ken, I'm not sure if you're still looking, but talking to a Realtor is always your best bet to find current market value of any property. It's tricky with land, so a Realtor who is active in the area and knows the market well can help you. The value in the tax rolls is insufficient - in some counties it's notoriously low, while in others it's notoriously high! At any rate, you need someone knowledgeable about the market they work in every day!

Hello Mrs Deleon,the answer to your question as too wether to spend more money on your property, is completely up too you.Do you want to sell your home quickly so you can purchase another,or if you are not in a hurry and dont mind investing more money to upgrade it and ask for a larger price for the property?. Do you think it will pass an inspection,if the buyer is trying to get a loan on the property,so that it will appraise for the amount you are asking?.A lot of my clients ask similar questions as yours.A lot of times I will look at the property,and if I think it will pass inspection,I sometimes tell my seller not to put any more expense into the home.The reason being a lot of buyers want to do it themselves,that way they think they are buying the property that is more affordable,also some times an investor will buy the property and they will do what they think it needs and sometimes (flip it) that means re sell it or even rent it,so those type of buyers like to pick up properties priced as low as possible and they do the work.With out seeing your home it is difficult to advise you,naturaly if you intend to purchase another property you need to sell the one you are in with doing as little as possible.A good idea would be to have a Realtor look at your home and give you an honest opinion.I am available to help and advise you, I have been in the real estate business many years,and have a lot of experience,and would love to help you.Thank you Pamela 903 738 6147. ... more

Doc & Ellen Stephens answered:
Hi, Nazaria,

Decide whether you want to sell to an investor or a consumer.

There is a market for homes that aren't in good repair. Typically, the Investor Buyer will start at 80% of the 'As Repaired Value', deduct the cost of the repairs AND the cost of holding the home while it is being repaired (taxes, insurance, utilities, security, etc.), then deduct another 10% for a hedge factor. If you want to sell it like that, it's your money.

Consumers are looking for homes that are sparkling clean, everything repaired, move-in ready, and priced right at market. Homes like that sell almost immediately, and sometimes get multiple offers.

Ask your agent to help you to calculate the costs of getting it into top shape, then decide which way is best for you.

Good luck,

Doc Stephens, REALTOR
