Finders Fees are legal in CA but I think they put a cap on $500.00 and are not based on commission there are loopholes some companies use for commercial properties.

Hi Sandra, Trulia and Zillow are one and the same. It seems most of their efforts are put into the Zillow site. You may try contacting Zillow.

Good luck

To list directly on Trulia would require the use of a licensed real estate agent. You can, however, post your FSBO listing at Zillow.

Sally, I meant my interest in the home, if it's ours 50/50 could I not sell my 50% interest in the home?

Contact and invite a few local agents from different realty companies and ask for a cma, comparable market analysis, review the data, ask opinions and go from there; cma's are generally provided free of charge by most agents; or consider hiring a professional appraiser.... ... more

I think it's the live and let live attitude, combined with the general party atmosphere that seems to engulf the city every other weekend.

As far as real estate goes, it's nice to be able to buy a reasonably priced house with a yard that's somehow just blocks from a bar, a music venue, 10 great restaurants, three art galleries and a book shop. ... more

There are not enough lots for sale to have a broker that specializes in just selling lots. Note, that most banks will not accept land as collateral, and/or make it really hard to finance. This means you probably are looking at a cash buyer. If you have a subdivision, then you need a Realtor who can sell the conceot of a home on the land, not simply the land.

If what you have is just a lot, think of creative ways to market the property...and ways and means to contact those most likely to be interested in the property.

Since this is a lot, the location of the Realtor is less important than the ability to leverage the Realtor's marketing tools and techniques to bring buyers to the table.

Yes...lots of assaults...mostly by the rules now imposed by banks when buying condos. Beyond that, having to deal with Realtor Buyer Agents that do not preapprove their clients.

It appears the stats have changed...the Times Picayne only runs a few times a week, and the internet appears to coninue to run 24/7!

Choose the Realtor with the technology before the one chasing the paper in the winds of change. ... more

I commend her on her efforts but at after two years chances are the pricing isn't in line with the current market value. If she has told you this already and you would not entertain a price reduction then you should probably do a price reduction and give her a fair shot at selling the property. However, if she has not brought this to your attention and had documentation to back it up then I would consider changing agents. As difficult as it is for us as agents to ask a seller for a reduction if needed it's our job. The seller is paying us to market as well as advise them towards the sale of there home so if its a property is over priced its our responsibility to make the seller aware of that.

As far as canceling the contract I allow my client to cancel a listing agreement at anytime after the first 6 months. I work very closely with my clients and I feel that if we are no longer a fit anymore then it would be best for both parties to part ties. Good luck!
