You asked a question so you were able to set up an account. You should have clicked under agent or broker. For now scroll to upper right, click on your picture ad go down to help center. This is also were you would enter new listings. You can also go to Zilow and enter there and they will also come on Trulia. Lastly another great way to promote your listings in on Active Rain, i placed a link below to sign up for free. You can then post your listings in blog form for extra promotion and marketing ... more

You may never know the problem.

1) Only 3 weeks so the property may not be fully exposed to buyers
2) No one wants you neighborhood
3) you are over priced
4) You are under priced so people are afraid to waste time
5) The photos of your house are crappy
6) the description of your property scares of people
7) Your agent sucks
8) Sales are slow where you are

I could go on and on I see properties sell within literally a week and down the street I see a property that has been on the market for 7 years. Only a local person can help you

What if you have a sellers agent that has a reputation to not communicate in a timely manor and say one thing and do another. Also an agent who with the offer doesn't respond at all with in the expiration time frame. We made a Full Price offer Cash, no conditions . and we gave them 72 hours and still no response. When does the broker step in. Our agent did follow up and still nothing? I understand they have to look at all offers but if you offer exactly what they are asking and don't respond what is the sellers consequences? they have an agent who listed it and it is still active no other offers? Where does the agent and the listing agent get held responsible? what is the point in listing a property if they don't respond? Just seems like misrepresentation are they selling or not?
What can we do? and finding another property I get and we are continuing to look but still nothing.

Cmocca answered:
I would walk away. If this is a regular sale and is the same owner who pulled both permits, this should have been stated in the Sellers disclosures your Realtor has to provide you by law. Some Sellers "forget" years later..... Although it is ultimately your responsibility to do your due diligence before making an offer. I have found issues that were deal breakers for me before I even proceeded with offers or paid money for inspections and appraisals. The bank is protecting themselves because they are funding your investment. I'll bet both the Realtors and Seller are annoyed that their deal may fall apart. As they say in Real Estate,"Caveat Emptor" or "Buyer Beware." ... more

Danielle Nicholl answered:
Are you asking about a listing agreement or purchase contract? If you are asking about a listing agreement different companies & agents have different policies. You should read your agreement and see if they allow you to be released early and if they have any fees that they charge (some may due to the marketing costs they have incurred). ... more

Laura D Hazlett answered:
Where do you see the appraisal value?

Is this a Market Value showing on an Appraisal that was done on a home by a certified Appraiser that was hired by you your or your lender? If so then the home is priced over Market Value.

Is this a value that you see on a tax record, or other public record about a home you are interested in? If that is the case then the home may not be overpriced as those values are used for taxes, etc and may not reflect the Market Value of the home.

Hope this helps!

Buyer pays for the survey. Surveys are required for transactions closing with a loan. For cash transactions the survey is optional. If purchasing a standard listing, ask the Seller if they have the Survey, and if they do the buyer can often save and just re-certify the survey. ... more

Hello Tom,

Each HOA is unique in their docs and rules. Most have to have a total % of residents in the community meeting the age requirements. To best determine the community rules, I recommend meeting with the HOA office manager. They know best how the community operates and if there are enough residents to meet and keep the criteria that they set.

Please let me know if you need assistance finding a property in the area. I work with all different types of housing from single family homes to condos.

Thank you,

Justin Falb
