I hope you get an answer, because I am wondering this same thing! We are under contract with a pending closing date and I updated that fact on Zillow. However, it's not updating here on Trulia and I keep getting requests. It's aggrevating since I can't login here and change it. ... more

Your listing agent can easily edit the pictures when they post your home for sale. If you are selling on your own, you do not have that option.

Selecting a list price based on what you need vs actual market value doesn't work, as you are finding out.

You are comparing your home to NEW construction in the same development, and your home is a resale (i.e. used) home.

Try professionally staging your home so it competes with the model homes. Touch up any minor imperfections to give the impression of "newness."

Has your builder home warranty expired? Perhaps offer an alternative warranty from one of the various home warranty companies.

Competing with new construction will be difficult, but it can be done.

Rose Wilkinson answered:
It depends on what your neighbors have that have similar square footage, bedrooms, bathrooms, year built, etc.

One of the worst things I see sellers do is upgrade beyond what the neighborhood calls for. Brand new windows as opposed to the old fashioned, pulley kind is a prime example. I fixed a house in Central Park (NW 30th and Shartel) that had the old fashioned, pulley kind windows and found that none of the houses that sold over there had updated windows, so I wasn't going to spend $8,000 dollars updating mine (There were over 34 windows in the house)

However, it is my understanding that Edgemere Heights is rather cheeky. I would go to Realtor.com and pull up interior pics of homes in your neighborhood and see what they have before you make a decision to upgrade.

Thanks,
Rose Wilkinson

Rose Wilkinson answered:
Hi,

I am not a Realtor, but a real estate investor in Oklahoma City. This sort of thing happens all of the time. Technically, "yes" a buyer can walk away at any time until the final paperwork is signed at the title company. If the earnest money deposit was made to a real estate company or a title company, then the buyer has to sign an earnest money release stating that they are o.k. with not receiving their earnest money back. If they refuse to sign the release, it just sits in the real estate broker or title companies account until both seller and buyer sign the release. There have been many times where I have had to negotiate with the buyer to give them half of their money back so they would sign the release.

In some cases, you can sue the buyer if they back out of a contract with no contingencies. But generally, an earnest money deposit is considered liquidated damages incurred by the seller, should the buyer back out.

Hope this helps.

Hello,

Go to www.Postlets.com - it is owned by Zillow (Who now owns Trulia) and it will automatically post your house to both of these sites plus 3 other high traffic real estate websites. Hope this helps.
