The agent can simply log on, edit and remove them. Trulia does not edit listings, they are a site to place ads for listings.

You are asking the right questions, "Lizinill" As someone who closes multiple short sale listings each month, I can tell you that there are stringent processes and policies that should be adopted and adhered to to prevent a situation exactly as you describe below. They are certainly not all perfect, but through diligent and professional effort, bad experiences and non-success can be kept to a minimum.

I hope it all works out for you!

You have a unique property indeed such that, "comps," won't mean much as there likely won't be any. I think you need to have a highest and best use study done which will then help you make the best decision for you. Applying some type of basic price per square foot theory to your situation would be a bit absurd. The value of the land may exceed that of the buildings, so you indeed have some homework to do... ... more

Good Morning Sue,
It saddens me to see agents slamming agents instead of addressing the question. Yes, it was a mistake on everyone's part. I would believe the purchase agreement had the address of the unit on it? This is a binding and legal document, why didn't either party (buyer or seller) review it before signing. Release the buyer from the Purchase Agreement and move on, it was an oversight for all parties involved. ... more

Hello Zen, I know this is a late answer to your question but if your still considering renting, there are property management companies who will screen the potential renters and collect the rent, take care of the eviction (if necessary) and will charge about 8% of the rental fee. They will take care of the maintenance. I can go on and on but if you are interested you can contact them at (248) 343-1267 the persons name is Nena @ North Bloomfield Properties. Tell her I sent you and they can help you out. If you have any further questions feel free to contact me.

Best Regards,

I just sold a home that had 3 offers on it within 10 days of a price change. Price matters in this market, where buyers are "value oriented."

In addition to the things mentioned by others:
Does your listing have mulitple photos?
Do you have a virtual tour?
Have you considered a bonus to the buyer's agent and or the buyers?

Just some thoughts to add to the other good advice you've received already.

Carlo Gobba answered:
Interview three Realtors (Get their opinion of value), if it is worth several hundred dollars for you to find out or double check against the Realtors opinions, hire an appraiser. Visit other homes in the area that are being offered for sale (Then watch closely to find out what their actual sales prices were) but have your friends and or family join you so that you can get an objective third party opinion in addition to your own. ... more
