UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hello, 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! ... more

The Engineer's Report is on public records here:

It says was "most likely" related to typical minor settlement but it continues to state that they found "evidence of sinkhole activity occurring beneath the property".

$20k seems a low estimate, how much did the Insurance Company pay ?

Hi There,
Setting price is the single most important factor in selling a home. Where do people start when looking for a home? With their budget! How do they search for a home online? By price. Of course other factors play a roll, like location, curb appeal, size etc...I work in the North Tampa Coldwell Banker office in which Lutz is one of our biggest service areas. Tampa in general only has 2 months of inventory total, which is extremely low and sellers are reaping the benefits! I would love the oppurtunity to share how I can market your home aggressively. Coldwell Banker is the #1 Real Estate Franchise in the world. Our listings go GLOBAL within 24 hours which is hugely important since our area has many snowbird & relocation customers. Which leads me to our relocation program. We also market on over 550 websites with your home being on all of them! No other company can offer you these. As a customer of ours you are given a password to have access to your transaction 24 hours a day for the rest of your life using our Homebase program. Your listing will be part of our In Touch program which allows us to capture every buyer who inquires about your home wether its by calling off the sign or off any of those 550 websites. These are really just a few of the incentives we offer. Please call me for a competitive market on your home so I can get it sold for you!! Lutz is one of my favorite markets!

Do you have in your divorce papers any mention as to how marital assets such as the home are to be dealt with. If for instance you have half the value of the home and that upon a certain time said home is to be sold and each are to receive a portion of the sale, then you need to take this document out of the moth balls and make several copies. Next you need to take this to a Real Estate Lawyer, You would be say allowed to sue her for your half of the value of the home if she were to allow it to be foreclosed on especially if she had funds to pay the mortgage. She can not put the house in financial danger just for say revenge. Having Your name on a deed is nice but banks forclose on properties to regain their financial output. Talk to a Real Estate Attorney about this matter, also call the attorney that represented you for the divorce since they also know the power of that agreement and can nip this in the bud! ... more

When in doubt, disclose, disclose, disclose.

I would contact a real estate lawyer to determine wether or not the actions of 20 years ago are reportable or if the statute of limitiations has passed on them.
