Hello Ellen,
Listings are sent to Trulia through a variety of feed sources such as partners, brokers, agents, third-party feed providers, or directly from an MLS. Price changes need to be updated at the source of the listing.

Once updated your listing will update on Trulia within 24 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

I would make sure that your septic tank needs to be replaced, or if it just needs to be pumped. Sometimes if you're experiencing problems they can be easily fixed by pumping the tank. However, you won't know this unless you've had it well inspected. I would call around to check the cost from several different contractors, since you don't have experience with one from before.

YES, most appraisals are only good for 6 months but in a changing market that sees values going up or down, they may only be good for 3 months. Each lender will always order their own appraisal and never really use an appraisal done by someone else or for another purpose. ... more

You kind of have it backwards. Listings get put on MLS and then migrate to Trulia. There are some listings that are not in MLS that are on Trulia and mostly because they have not been updated as pending or sold. The most up to date listings come from MLS ... more

Karen, in the past year I closed on two properties that did not have Title V at closing. There are a few banks that will do this, and the usual procedure is that the bank withholds the cost of the septic plus an additional 50% for a stated period of time. You can reach me at 508 292 7939 if you want to discuss this further - or by e-mail ... more

Posting a listing on Trulia does not add it to the local MLS but many of the listings in the MLS are added to Trulia.

I would suggest speaking with your attonery and make sure an extension is signed for the closing date by all parties in writing.

My home has been incorrectly listed as a condo by Trulia. I've tried to correct this by creating an account here (pain in the ass and also the last thing I wanted to do). Anyway, I tried to correct this by creating an account so that I could update/edit my home description. This was not possible. I plan to contact the Better Business Bureau about this. If needed I will contact a lawyer. ... more

I have sold around the lakes for years. The pollution stigma has not impacted sales that I have had for many years. The pollution was not air born and with town water which is tested regularly buyers feel comfortable from my experience. Now I would not eat the fish in many Cape lakes. The nitrate loading and run offs are a serious problem to the natural habitat. Sewers are on the way in the future in most water sensitive locations across all the CAPE. ... more

If Don's methods below do not work simply contact your credit card company and dispute the charges.

On second thought, call them now anyway. Explain you can not cancel and want them to handle it for you. I am sure they know how bad realtytrack is and will be glad to do it for you. ... more

Today's market has brought up to $100K less than appraised amounts due to the high inventory of REO's 2005 was the peak of the market, so my advise based on the facts you've given me is to cut your losses if you need to get out soon and make it up on the other end when you purchase. Check out my website for a free search of properties and bank owned ... more

Patience, patience, patience. Consider that the bank has one individual handling all of there bank owned properties or at least a great number of them. If you have a deal --- wait it out, they will get to you but you will have to wait. I agree with all of the other comments provided to answer you question. ... more
