Trulia does not allow FSBO to post directly to this site. Try Zillow instead.

If you're doing For Sale by Owner, you need to understand that many agents pay monthly subscription fees to Trulia, Zillow and other real estate websites. Agents pay the fees to advertise themselves and to gain prospective leads from buyers contacting them. The majority of buyers do their real estate search online, so its only natural that agents advertise online. In return, these websites give the agents advertising space on X number of listings they pay for - including yours. You have no control over this. At this time, Trulia receives listings directly from the MLS & 3rd party websites - but not from For Sale by Owners, so I'm wondering how you posted your listing. For Sale by Owners have to visit a different website that posts to Trulia. allows For Sale by Owners to post directly to Zillow and Zillow now owns Trulia too.
As for comparing your home to others that have nothing in common - understand that both Zillow and Trulia use automated valuation models to create their estimates. The estimates are rarely accurate and is primarily used for marketing purposes for both Trulia and Zillow. The estimates are based on county public records and do NOT include condition of home, neighborhood facts that buyers would take into account, any upgrades or lack of, any exterior additions that are not in county public records and many other factors.

I am a real estate agent and a recent buyer. I use Trulia and Zillow. And now started using Redfin. There is also Craigslist. But I used Trulia as a source to find my new home, because the info is easier to look and understand compared to others.

Thank you for your valuable time!

Yes Seth, Huntington Township is a great place to live and raise a family.

I am a certified Relocation Realtor and would be happy to answer any of your questions, or give you a tour of the areas and villages that encompass Huntington.

You should contact the broker/owner of the Listing agent's office as it seems they are using your offer to increase an offer by one of their buyers. If they do not get back to you, have your agent contact the Board in your area and they will ensure that your offer is presented and you get a counter.

Brynn unfortanately you ar ein one of the linited areas where the tenant pays the commission to rent. Here in NH it is the landlord who pays the listing agent the commission, not the buyer. As in any market commission is negotiable, if you are not happy paying this fee, shop around and see what others have for fees. The key is the rentals in short supply or rentals that are highly desired, will always be more than thise less desirable or with an abundance of availibility. ... more

@ Gail

Homeowners insurance does not cover land.

As for rating criteria, there's a TON of information taken into consideration when rating a risk...replacement cost being only one of them. ... more

Hey Jim and Julie,
Both your MLS 2221865 and 2221738 for this property both have the address showing on the internet in MLS -
The trulia site gets the feed of information for each property from different places, if you go to your listings and click on the address, there is another button that allows you to "see more details" and whatever comes up there is where trulia is getting the information. If you can't change it yourself which in this case you can by changing MLS which is feeding trulia and give it 24-48 hours. Or you can call Customer Service at 1-888-565-3652 which is the Trulia Pro Customer Service number.
Hope your both awesome and I will see you at your open house. Beautiful home Congrats! Lisa Leib XOXO

Beautiful area -- as long as the stacks aren't in view, of course.

We bought a home just South of 25A in Northport and that articles such as this were a concern of ours.

I'm not sure if being the worst plant in the region, from an environmental perspective, necessarily means there are any specific health risks. I have yet to hear of any related issues.

Anyhow, we LOVE the area and I'm more concerned about the recurring health risks from my last home, which was next to the WTC, than Northport - for the time being.

(Keep in mind that the low taxes in Northport are due in large part to the LIPA plant.)

Zillow is a valuable comparative tool - unless you ask a broker. I think it gives a reasonable indication of real estate trends and access to current and historical transactional details. Not diminishing the value of a broker, but they doth protest too much.

As far as a home on Ft. Salonga Road in Northport - commercial development in the area may have an impact on the pricing, depending on where it is. Also, there's a seasonal factor as the traffic, folliage, etc. changes and homes become more or less appealing based on those seasonal factors.

Dirtha Campbell answered:
A. Section 36(c)(1) requires that the taxpayer and the taxpayer's spouse not have an ownership interest in a principal residence within the three years prior to the date of purchase.

This is regardless if you are qualifiying as an individual or joint application and regardless if you married filing single.
A first-time homebuyer is an individual (and the individual's spouse, if married) who has not had an ownership interest in a principal residence (within the meaning of Section 121 of the Internal Revenue Code) during the three years before the date a new principal residence is purchased.
