I think it should appear on Trulia eventually. It takes a few days for the data to show up.

Maybe you need to address this with your listing agent? Nobody here can assist you with that. Good luck!

Your agent should be able to edit property info here as well. But I wouldn't worry too much about this one site. People aren't going to buy or not buy a home because of the property description. If it's priced well, and has professional photos, shows well and is in the local MLS, it will sell. If it doesn't sell within a week or two, it's overpriced. We're in a very strong seller's market and most homes are selling within a few days.

For inspection you were never obligated to fix anything. The deadline was more for them to decide if they wanted to proceed and a potential way out of the contract still allowing them to get their earnest money back. Where as now if they back out due to inspection items you are not obligated to give them back their earnest money. The contract itself still lives on just watch the deadlines to protect yourself. ... more

Yes, we can help! One suggestion would be to find a great tenant for your property who can pay the mortgage payment until the time that the market improves. We can sell the condo at that time. This would allow you to make the move into the property that fits your current needs. ... more

Yes unfortunately circumstances are not good if you bypass HOA payments as they do have power in many cases to put a lien on the home.

Hi Russell. What does your Agent say about this situation? Inspections are always the difficult portion of any sales transaction! However, if you loose this buyer for any reason, a completely different inspector will come out which could be good or bad, and they always find something. Truly. Safety items are what your concerns should be, in this market, I'm CERTAIN they want your house. But your Agent certainly can guide you better than those of us that do not have the entire picture in front of us. Colorado is full of outstanding Sellers that would never want to let a Buyer purchase a home with any safety issues that could jeopardize the health of yourself, while the loan is being done and you still own the home, or when the new owners take possession. Right? Even when an agent sells there home, we go through an inspection and may have to fix things. I hope I helped! Lynne ... more

Ron Thomas answered:
Tim is so insightful.
Just to add; you are obviously working without a Realtor, or you would not have to ask these questions.
If the Buyer also is working without a Realtor, and did not include the normal Contingencies; then you both will end up with what you create; confusion! ... more

Susan Boyken answered:

The first thing to know is that many of your closing costs are negotiable. In the contract, you can negotiate for the seller, buyer, or half and half to pay different costs. Even the agent's percentage is negotiable. If you have an HOA, you can call the HOA for their costs to close and their transfer fees. The title companies also all have slightly different costs depending on who you choose.

I can give you an estimate on how much it may cost, but I would need to find out some of your specifics.

I would be happy to help if you are interested.

The 4th bedroom has value to an appraider and will limit your "Buyer Pool" when the time comes to sell if you are only offering a 3 bedroom. If it would improve your home for your family, then make the conversion, but it will not "improve" thavlue of your home and may actually decrease it...

Bob Maiocco - 8z Evergreen/Conifer answered:
Hi Kathy,

The very term short sale refers to the situation in which the proceeds from the sale are “short” of paying off the various liens and encumbrances on the home. These include any mortgages, tax liens, HOA liens etc. I recently negotiated a short sale on behalf of a Seller in Douglas County who had to sell but the value of there home was not quite enough to pay off the first mortgage, never mind the second mortgage or the large HOA lien. After lengthy negotiations I was able to get all lien holders to agree to accept a large reduction in the amount each was owed. One technique that may be specifically applicable to you is a term called the Superlien which holds that the lien value has a cap of up to a total amount equal to six months of regular assessments, plus attorney fees, interest and other allowable items. Although an attorney is best suited to clarify the ramifications of this- it may be helpful if you have accrued a large HOA lien.

I’ve done an extensive amount of work with short sales and will be happy to answer more specific questions when you’re ready…
