Hi,

Thank you for reaching out. Currently, Trulia site do not have the feature to know how many views the property has. This is something that's on Zillow. We value your interest in our company and I have forwarded your suggestions to our specialists.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Ignore Scott's advice even though he is an agent. If you are talking about a listing contract, all you need to do is speak with the Office Manager or Broker in Charge and explain that you want to cancel the contract. They won't like it because it means they are losing a potential sale but you are the owners and you don't need to sell with this particular brokerage either. What you need to tell the Office Manager is your husband signed the listing contract without your signature. That should be enough to cancel it.

Bottom line - even IF the agent were to find a qualified buyer who submitted an offer, the purchase contract CANNOT be valid because 2 signatures are required - yours and your husband. Therefore, the listing agent will be in the awkward position of explaining to the buyer (or their agent) that he / she took the listing by mistake and the buyer's offer is not valid because YOU will refuse to sign the purchase contract.

Explain this to the Office Manager or Broker in Charge - I guarantee you they will be happy to cancel your listing because NO BROKER ever wants to be in the position of accepting a listing contract that has no chance of getting sold. Brokers need to make money and they only get paid when a home sells - not when a listing contract is signed. So use your power and talk to the Office Manager tomorrow.

Andy,

Selling your house fast for a top market price depends on the repairs and upgrades needed to get there. Putting smart light can make fall buyers in love with your house.

Undoubtedly, first impression is really important; so, work on it. As the first thing that any buyer will see is the outlooks of your house, so walk out of your house and check that how it looks

If you want a fair cash but haven't time to repair and upgrade. Contact me anytime, we can help you get the better price.

"ONE to buy, TWO to SELL."

If you are married and own real estate in Minnesota, your spouse must agree to the sale of that property whether or not your spouse’s name is on the title to the property.

This is just a knowledge of an experienced realtor in Minneapolis, MN. If you have questions, Kindly seek the advice of an law attorney. Or you can visit reference to check the options you have to sell your house

Its all depend on the agreement that you signed with your broker. Be good with your agent and ask the to re-negotiate the commission based on the circumstances.

Is this a service they offer? I was under the impression that certain features of Trulia are not available without an agent.

You'd have to talk to an attorney about the terms of your contract if you want to be certain but going the legal route will be a drawn out process and expensive.

Ideally, if there are skilled agents on each side (or even if only one of you has a good one), it shouldn't be that difficult to negotiate a resolution to this. Last minute issues happen all the time. An experienced agent will be able to offer options to deal with this. ... more

You should go back and review the service contract you signed. It's not uncommon for any business to include a clause saying that video and photos of (whatever service) are their property and may be used for promotional purposes. It's entirely possible you gave permission.

Aside from that, most upstanding businesses will be respectful if you kindly ask them to take it down.

Dan, if you're an agent, you should be able to make these changes yourself. There is no one from Trulia here, monitoring the Q & A section looking for ways to help us agents. Your set up as a consumer, not an agent. Maybe that's the issue? Maybe you also need to educate your seller about Trulia and how the info here isn't necessarily accurate. Hopefully your MLS has the correct info?? ... more

If not we have preferred ones we can get you in contact with. I would like to see if I can help you out with a home mortgage. I will try and make this a very easy process.

Hello Leorand,

Good morning.

Typically 7% is the amount the seller is going to be paying the agents total. Usually 2.7% for the buyers agent and the remaining to the sellers agent. Did the home sell? Are you in the market to purchase a new home? If so, I would love to see if we can help you out. I would like to see if I can help you out with a home mortgage. I will try and make this a very easy process. Please let me know how to help out.
Thanks much.

MNreno answered:
Well I'm not a realtor so I can legally tell you that yes, 2.7% is the most common going rate, just as someone mentioned below and others didn't like it. You have to wonder why it's so hush-hush. Is it really to avoid collusion to protect consumers? Or is it to avoid having consumers know what is going on? ... more

Karen Peyton answered:
Since it sounds you may have quite a few bucks at stake (insert from the 90's which is likely obsolete) I suggest as your Realtor advises and speak with an attorney. Before doing so, it will important to gather all your paperwork regarding the Buyer's inspection (report,) the repair request, your receipts showing the repairs made, and the Buyer's final walk-through inspection. Take also your disclosure statement so the attorney can see exactly what you "said," and can therefore ask him or her if you should have mentioned any level of difficulty.

Understanding you don't want to pay for an attorney, try Google for some no-cost, or low cost options. Some attorneys will provide a consultation free of charge.

Good luck! I hope you can put this behind you as soon as possible!!
