An agent does not normally provide full service brokerage for 1%. While it may appear to cost less, there are some services they may not provide.

If trying to list the home as an unrepresented listing, Trulia will not allow that. I would recommend interviewing a few local agents to see what they have to offer. Everyone is different in their marketing plans and what they have to offer. If you would like another option or have questions please feel free to contact my team.

Good luck.

If you are a for sale by owner the post is not allowed; if and when you do list with a broker, ask your agent to post the listing, or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into the site.... ... more

Definitely hire the right that will take care of putting it on Trulia, as well as many many more websites...the more the better. You want maximum exposure. If you're are trying to sell on your own keep in mind that 98% of Sellers use Realtors to sell their home and only 2% actually get their home sold on their own. Something to keep in mind. ... more

Contracts must be drawn up. Check your state laws or ask your attorney to draft the contract. Pay attention to all of the terms such as inspections, mortgage info, and closing date.

If you are in this situation, I have a way where you can knock out the debt on your rental home so you can qualify for a new mortgage. Realtors, give me a call if you have clients in this situation, especially ones that have had their houses on the market for 90 days or longer!

After looking at your homes info, it is highly unlikely an investor will buy it. Not impossible but not likely. I've been listing and selling homes in that very area since 1998 and most investors are looking for less expensive or multi family properties.

Since these are good tenants, an agent will just need to sit down with them and let them know the process and to also let them know their needs and concerns will be addressed. I've dealt with numerous tenants and some are easy and some are not but obviousely it would be helpful to keep the cash flow coming in while the home is being marketed.

As I said, south OKC, Moore and Norman, specifically Moore schools which this home resides in is my specialty. I see where the home was listed before yet there was only 1 photo. I use the maximum photos allowed (20) along with HD video tours to help market my listings. Buyers have told me they will not look at homes unless they have multiple high quality photos. There is absolutely no excuse for using less than 20 photos in a listing plus room sizes so potential buyers can see how big the rooms are.

You have one of the bigger homes in Arbor Lakes. The average is around 1991 square feet so historically the bigger homes in a neighborhood can take longer to sell. Over the past two years there were only 2 sales recorded in the MLS but there have been 5 expired listings and 3 released. Not the numbers you like to see but it makes little things like photos and information even more important.

Sorry to throw all this info at you but the more you know, the better informed you will be and the better you will understand the market and what needs to be done to sell your home. If you need anything else, please let me know.

Julie Gentry answered:
If I understand your question, you don't have enough equity to sell the home, cover closing costs(including realtor fees), and cover the mortgage owed. Your relocation has created a financial hardship. As I don't know the reasons for the relocation, I can't tell you if that would qualify as a hardship with your lender.. Your lender covers all of the above fees and accepts an amount less than what you owe. Under certain short sale programs you may be eligible to receive relocation assistance up to $3000. That money is actually paid directly to you at closing. Those funds are primarily paid to you as long as this is your primary residence and you are still occupying the home. If you would like alittle more info you can visit my website on short sales or give me a call at (405)821-5863.The website is Hope that helps, Julie Gentry Prudential Alliance Realty ... more
