Where do I find "my listings"? I see that it's supposed to be in the navigation bar. Under what name? The 1st step is to go to my listings but there is not a tab named that.

Trulia has the address incorrect as: POO1229 N Jackson St #303 Milwaukee, WI 53202 (Juneau Town). Most importantly, eliminate "POO" from the start of the address.

HI! Perhaps a short sale is not necessary. First, do you know the difference between market value and assessed value? Many people think the City assessment is market value because those exact words are written on our property tax letter every year. People sometimes don't realize those numbers given by the City are off because they are old. Those numbers only get updated every few years and they are based off of a general average not what your home in particular offers. Also, many people think Zillow and Trulia are accurate. I love those two sites but truth be told the sites do not have the most accurate sales info and can not adjust pricing according to what your home does or doesn't offer.

With that said, I would love to do a real, up-to-date market analysis on your home.

If your mortgage is truly $20k over today's market I can help you with your short sale. I have successfully listed and sold short sales with many lenders including Wells Fargo, Citibank, Bank of America, Chase, HSBC and GMAC.

Hopefully I when we meet I can tell you that you can sell your home without a short sale but either way I would be here to help you and get your home sold!

Hi, Angela. In addition to contacting a REALTOR(R) who specializes in the downtown Milwaukee condo market for any leads, I would also suggest contacting my-dwelling which specializes in matching tenants with home owners and condo owners.

My specialty is the downtown condo market and I find that the market is shifting away from condo rentals. During the recession, we saw a spike in the number of condos being rented. Now that the market is showing improvement, we're experiencing more sales in this market - matching levels similar to pre-recession. With inventory levels at low levels, I'm finding that condos aren't sitting on the market for very long.

There are a few apartment finding services in downtown Milwaukee. One such company is I hope I was able to provide some insight in the downtown condo market.

Best regards,
David Ray, Shorewest Realtors - Downtown Sales Office

There is no doubt that it will add value. The real question is will it add more value than the cost? Instead of guessing I would recommend giving the buyer the option of the improvement with an adjusted price. You cast a wider net that way. ... more

All the answers below are good ones! I would just caution you that a lender is going to look at all your income/assets before approving a short sale so if you have money in your 401k or in the bank they may approve the short sale but say you can pay it out of your pocket from your own sources! Also a short sale should be taken very seriously as it will negatively effect your credit. In most cases it is looked at along the lines of a foreclosure so you may have to wait 3 yrs before being able to obtain another mortgage. ... more

Nina Kraus answered:
A short sale is for those who can no longer pay their mortgage for one reason or another and are "upside down" with the bank. It is not for people whose houses are paid in full. You can attempt to sell your house quickly by pricing it right and making all the necessary improvements. ... more

I sell new construction and occupied property. The one thing that seems to be on everyones agenda is flooring, kitchen (appliances and upgrades) and closets. I can have the same condo with out upgrades that maybe would cost $5000 to complete for a unit that has those upgrades already and that unit sells first and for $10,000 to $20,000 more. Declutering and repainting also helps to create the atmosphere of new. Todays buyers are busy and want a ready to move-in scenario. ... more

You probably had more showings the past 2 weeks than over the past 6 months because this is the peak of the buying season when most areas are really busy. By not having your home actively listed , you are missing out on getting the showings you need to get your home sold. By your former realtor having a list of names of all showings with or without buyers names sounds like he really stayed on top of the showing when he was representing you. Why not give him another chance & renew your listing so that it shows up as a fresh on the market listing & that will generate even more showings.Make sure you have alot of pictures of your home on your listing, that will help too. Good luck. ... more
