There may be tax consequences of what you are looking to do, so would suggest your consult a tax adviser and also a real estate attorney before switching title to the property. If your mom lives where she has access to email and printers, she can actually list/sell the property from abroad, agents in FL often have foreign sellers or sellers residing in foreign countries that we deal with. ... more

If your're selling a house or any property it is very important an excellent photo that can captivate potential home buyers and can make you look more professional if you're a home seller.

A good photo can also give the home buyer an idea of how the house looks like. But before you take photos, here are some examples of bad photos you should avoid.

Your REALTOR, if they have an account on Trulia will be able to schedule the OPEN HOUSE on Trulis by accessing the listing details.

Call your REALTOR

Annette Lawrence answered:
Reason #1. you have not waited a sufficiently long time for it to appear
Reason #2. It is on Trulia but not where you are looking

Reason #3. the listing agent advised the seller that placing their home's information on advertising websites like TRULIA and ZILLOW forfeits the rights of the home owner to control their homes information. Predators of any kind will be able to see the interior of your home. These advertising websites reserve the right to use the home data in any manner that suits their purpose. If #3 is the reason, this listing agent has DEMONSTRATED UNCOMMON concern for the safety of not only the seller but the buyer as well.

Ron, if you are the SELLER, you should thank your REALTOR profusely. The long enduring perils and hazards that result of losing control of your homes data, creating risk, may have long enduring liability for the seller, their agent, the brokerage involved on both sides.

There are a lot that factors into how long a home is on the market before obtaining a contract, and an average time on market does not really say a lot. Price is the most important factor. If a home is priced correctly, especially if it is on a favorable water location, you can expect offers and possibly a contract within the first 30 to 60 days. Second most important factor in determining time on market is how well the home shows and ease of showings. A home that is cluttered or is not easy to schedule showing appointments will increase the time on market. The exterior and interior of home should be in the best presentation possible during the time the home is on the market.

KC Horton answered:
If you are the seller, your Realtor can probably lower the price every two weeks or so until offers come in. This way they have a track record of pricing to build their case to the bank that this homes offer should be accepted. The bank then may or may not approve the short sale at that price, but they will have a better idea where to market the home price-wise. An offer starts the negotiating process, so it is good to try and hit the sweet spot on pricing. ... more

Alma Kee answered:
Hi Theresa,

Many "flat fee" Realtors will allow you to list your house very cheaply and even give you the right to sell the house yourself and not pay a buyer's realtor fee if a realtor doesn't bring your buyer.

Realtors simply go to the MLS system (they don't usually have time to drive the neighbor and try to haggle with a FSBO) and pull up properties that meet their client's criteria and then make appointment and show those homes. Not sure why you are reluctant to "list" the property but in this "buyer's market" you may be shooting yourself in the foot. Serious buyers who are ready to write a contract are normally working with a Realtor who will show them the MANY houses available at these bargain prices.

Also are you sure you are priced correctly? Pay $300 to an experienced appraiser so you don't overprice your house or underprice it. I normally show FSBO's if we're driving by and my buyer asks because they are usually no threat whatsoever because they are normally overpriced and also show poorly. Occasionally I'll find a nicer FSBO home but most of the time the price is no competition for active listings on the MLS that my ciients have already seen or will soon see.

Hope this helps.

All my best,
Alma Rose Kee, PA
