Did you get an answer? I think that it is not in the interest of Tr ulia to update their site by deleting pics. They are in the business of selling advertising and less content may mean less traffic. A quick goo gle search for "remove pictures from trulia" indicates this has been a problem for years. ... more

To get the final yes or no you need to talk with your CPA, but generally speaking as the law is written now as long as you have owned the home for 5 years which you have, and have lived there for 24 months in a row prior to renting you should be fine. The rule was written to proctect people that had been relocated for work reasons. Best ... more

Matt Heisler answered:
As a home buyer, the only opinion that matters is yours! It could be priced fine, but if it doesn't work for you in terms of amenities, features, drawbacks, location, etc, than the price doesn't really matter.

A strong agent can help you think about a property, and help you make the most of your decsion.

Why wouldn't you buy a home near an elementary school. I have sold a few like this and my clients say it has worked out great. It's is quiet after 3:30, weekends no one is home, spring break it is quiet. AND - you have an awesome playground for the kids to play anytime. I have not seen any repercussions from a price perspective with my clients who have purchased in front and behind the elementary school. ... more

Hi Rahul -

Best way to calculate the value of your home is:

1. Choose an agent that knows how to do a thorough analysis of the comps - additionally - they should to go out and preview homes which your would be competing with. Then, once the price in narrowed in on - choose the price JUST below the most recent SOLD/Closed comp.

2. I ALSO hire and pay for an independent appraisal. WHY? Ultimately it is the banks appraisal which trumps everything. ALSO - you may put the appraisal out for buyer review to further validate the asking price.

3. Make sure that the Realtor you choose is excellent at marketing your home by using Social Media Syndication, in additional to traditional methods of marketing, this is key to exposinhg your ome to the max number of potential buyers...

If you would like to learn more its easy - just give me a call .... It's my Pleasure

Hi MI,
I think the North natick area can be highly desirable, it is a beautiful area. It depends on your needs and lifestyle. Many year ago, there was always a "right and wrong side of the tracks" mentality within most towns.
Today, people want to be in a good community, and an easy commute. South Natick has always been very desirable "the right side of the tracks", but North Natick might be an easier commute depending where you work. Walnut Hill and Natick center is good as it is close to commuter rail. The whole Town is wonderful and you should try and find a home you love and in a convenient location. Just my opinion! I hope this is helpful.
If you would like to search for homes by MAP Search, go to my website (below) and "Search Homes" it will show the search results on a map. Feel free to contact me. Best Regards, John

James Gordon ABR SFR SRS answered:
Tasha as an agent you should know how to do comps and come up with a good CMA for your clients. This is something you should go over with your broker. It is their job to make sure that you know how to properly perform your duties to your client.
Don't take no as an answer from your broker. Ask your broker for the training that it takes to make you a top performing agent.

The Kelly & Colombo Group answered:
Many foreclosures will only show one picture. However it is the rules of MLS say that all agents are responsible to submit a minimum of 1 picture within 48 hrs of putting a property on the market. If you see a sold home with no picture it may have been sold back when pictures were not required.
It’s a Good Life,

James answered:
Based on current market conditions, a home in Natick would be easier to sell, since investories are still quite modest there. Longer term, Natick is probably also safer given employment opportunities in town and near town. Finally, given gas prices, locations that are closer to major cities are going to fare better as the cost of commuting increases. All of that said, I agree with other postings, that the most important consideration should be which house will you personally be happiest in. Almost any house can be "resold" at the right price. ... more

James answered:
It seems to me that Natick would be your best bet. You can get closer to Boston and stay in your price range. Plus, Natick is a very pleasant family-oriented town that I imagine you would like better than Framingham (plus it has better schools). Other nice towns, such as Needham, Wellesley, or Westwood, would be well out of that price range. ... more
