Nobody at Trulia is in real esatte. No one at Trulia really knows anything about real estate nor do they need to they are an Internet Advertsing firm and nothing more.

As for accuracey of data, it's never been Trulia or Zillow's (trulias parent company) strength and this has been true for more than a decade.

If you want good accurate data in a timely manner your best bet would be to work with an experienced local Realtor in the area you're interested in.

I used to live in San Jose, it's about an hour away from San Francisco. San Diego is pretty nice all year round, the whole state California is pretty much nice all year round. There is a huge temperature drop between day and night, you should always bring a coat! Even though it does not storm as much in California, they have earthquakes! ... more

Hi Annette!
The only 93 Locust I could find is actually in Ross Township. The half bathroom has just a toilet and sink with some sort of tile on the floor. It's located on the main floor along with the living room, dining room, and kitchen. The full bathroom is located upstairs with the 2 bedrooms.
Just so you know too there is a $323 per month HOA fee that covers water, sewer, trash, basic cable, exterior maintenance, lawn, snow removal use of the pool, clubhouse, tennis courts and basketall courts.

There are many reasons that a person wants to list their home by themselves and they have the right to do so. The biggest factor in selling any property is marketing the property to maximize the amount of buyers that see it. The key to this is getting it on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) where all of the agents list their properties. You do not need to be an agent to utilize this service but you will need to pay for it. When you put your property on here, make sure you do some research and competitively price your property based upon what other homes have sold for in the last 3-6 months in your area. Also, take good pictures (up to 18), take good measurements and write inviting descriptions. The key is to fill out as much information as possible BUT it must be honest otherwise you could face lawsuits. I also suggest printing out colored flyers and holding open houses over the weekends.

Although you do not have an agent listing your property, you MUST cooperate (pay) buyer's agents if they bring a buyer to the property. Your chances of selling your property without doing this is slim to none as most people are represented in this way.

Other than that, there are really no secrets about selling your own house.

Marie: if you are trying to sell your home, then you should get as much internet exposure as possible. If a seller told me to take their listing off of Trulia (one of the nations biggest Real Estate Sites), I would ask them if they had lapsed into insanity...

Linda Lorenzo: If your broker does not have trulia auto-linked through a listing "hub" or via some other technology/software, maybe you should look into other companies because you're spending too much time doing everything manually. Perhaps we should talk about Keller Williams sometime? You can make more money and be hooked in to about 40 sites automatically. Send me an email requesting info!
