Sell it yourself. Very simple and will save you thousands. go to a local Title Agency and they can give you the paperwork and some infor on costs. Put up a FSBO sign and create your listing on line with free website. you can list your home and advertise it on many local sights. I have done this twice for myself and am going to sell my MOL for her also. ... more

For the past several years, price seems to be the ONLY criteria necessary to assure a timely sale. Your realtor should be expected to prepare a Broker Price Opinion that lets you know the expected sale price of your home. Price opinions are created by careful study of the most recent sales in the area, and then picking several that are very similar to your home. By seeing what similar homes sold for, it is possible to "predict" what a home like yours would be expected to sell for.

If the homeowner decides to stretch things a bit by offering their home at a much higher price, it is likely that the home will not sell if market conditions remain the same.

Hi Tony!
The freeway runs through the original town of Mt Shasta as does the train. I have found that it can be heard from different areas at different times of the day and different atmospheres. The listing I have at 2601 North Old Stage Rd is west of the freeway at least 1/2 mile and down below the freeway a bit so the sounds are very limited. The freeway sound travels "up" primarily so you may not hear it 3 blocks from it if your home is below the freeway and still hear it up near the top of the city neighborhoods east of downtown. That being said, I live over 1 1/2 miles from 1-5 and sometimes I don't hear the freeway at all and other times it sounds quite loud. What I've noticed is that once I'm outside doing something - gardening, hiking, etc I forget about the sounds. They blend into the background. Most of the buyers I have worked with who were adamant about no freeway noise found that once they started looking, they often found something in town and actually realized the sound isn't as loud as they thought it would be. The best thing to do is come experience this beautiful area for yourself and you'll be as enchanted as I was and the freeway will be a non issue. ... more

I'm guessing that you either want to know what your own home is worth OR you are looking at property and trying to figure out quick way to estimate market value.

If either of these assumptions is true please take a peek at this post:

Nope as said below they only will do one offer at at time. Hopefully you are in contact with the listing agent to let you know if the offer falls through. Frankly with so many properties out there I stir clear of short sales just for this reason - huge waste of time unless they are pre-approved. ... more

Hi, Danny. There's a HUGE night and day diffrence btw a prequalification and preapproval. The first is little more than a LO pulling your credit and determining your income based on what you "TELL" them. Its a good tool to see if you're in the ball park, but you won't get up to bat let alone first base without an actual preapproval. A preapproval is given out after a LO reviews and verifies your actual income, assets, and employment documentation and gotten an automated DU Approve/Elligble. This is what you want and realtors and sellers will need to know to show that you're a serious player that won't strike out when it comes making it to the closing table. ... more

Hi Daniel,

Good answers below, just want to add a few details. You may want to check and see if your listings are already on Trulia. To do this, log into your account and go to your listings page. From there you can do a search for listings based on address, MLS#, or your email address (if that is fed to us with a listing). I think many agents are surprised to find their listings already on Trulia. As Catherine stated below, you can submit listings directly on Trulia as well, but you may also want to use a third-party to syndicate your listings. The link below will allow you to see all your options, including some of our main syndication partners. Good luck!
