UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hello, The only way to get your FSBO home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, but you could also pay for what's called a flat fee listing service if you want to sell by owner (generally not a good idea). We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you. Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us at all, and it's completely free for you. Good luck! ... more

Not sure I completely understand the situation. Are you talking about a short sale? (That's the only reason why you'd need to get a response from their bank). If that's the case, then you need to educate yourself on short sales. First lesson: they are not short. They can take weeks, months...even a year or more. You need to talk to your agent about this (hopefully you have a buyer's agent working for you, and not just working with the listing agent?) The listing agent should be able to explain to your agent what is going on, and where they are in the short sale process. There are different steps, and different factors involved in a short sale. No two short sales are the same.

Maybe the bank has requested the agent to wait XX weeks and then submit all the offers at once? Maybe they're waiting to get a BPO on the property from the listing agent to see if $165K is a fair offer? (Broker Price Opinion). Do you know if the the seller even applied for a short sale with their lienholder? How many liens are on the property? (the more liens, the longer it takes). Seller has to show a financial hardship. Who knows if they can show that or not??

You may want to have a heart to heart with your agent and get an idea of how long this particular sale will take. If it's going to be months, are you prepared to wait that long? And what happens if the short sale doesn't get approved and the bank just forecloses on it? (that's a possibiltiy that happens all the time).

Short sales are a very complicated process. Talk to your REALTOR. Good luck!

My NC Homes Team answered:
At this point your options are limited. Technically the reports belong to you, but your agent shared them with the Seller giving them access to it. My advice is move on and forget it. You choose to terminate, (you didn't indicate whether you gave the seller the option to work with you to remediate the issues) and this was your right. Buyer's should not expect Sellers to pay for inspections, it's for the buyer's beneift not the Sellers. You could have your agent contact the buyer's broker when the houe goes under contract again and offer them your reports for 1/2 price. The Seller may not legally share your reports with anyone without your permission. ... more

Phoenixville is awesome. Small town feel, with a vibrant and growing downtown and very solid neighborhoods all around. Unlike most of the western suburbs, Phoenixville is not dominated by cookie cutter communities all built in the last 30 years. There are those, if you prefer them, but there are also a lot of mixed and in-town housing options as well. As a result, there is a wonderful blend of people that call Phoenixville home. The school district is small but very strong -- great music programs, the middle school is fantastic and the high school offers more AP classes then even the brightest students can handle. ... more

Just relocated a family from Florence to the Collegeville area. The area has a nice balance of new and classic homes, newer school facilities, and easy accessibility to parks, shopping, and the corporate centers in Great Valley, Collegeville, and King of Prussia. Commuting routes can be congested at rush hour, but where isn't it in the Northeast; however, if you seek access to regional rail for travel to downtown Philly, some locations are better than others. Also, some of the newer YMCA facilities service this broad area. If you'd like to discuss options, let me know. Good Hunting! ... more
