For example, if I have saved searches in three different parts of the country, am I able to sign in to Trulia and search for just the newest listings in those three areas?

I get what you were going for here, but there's a major "ick" factor for me in the notion that a real estate agent should be telling me as a buyer what I want and "educating" me about what my perspective should be. What you see go down on HGTV househunting shows is a bunch of coached garbage.

A house isn't Mary Kay or some other random product you can talk a person into buying. Someone has to be looking for a house like yours and above all else, it has to be at a price they're willing to pay.

Unless you're in an usually slow market, not having sold after a number of months is usually a good sign your price is too high.

I sincerely hope your agent has been providing continual feedback on what needs to change to sell this house.

Let's turn this around to the perspective of the seller. "Why should he invest his emotional time in preparing to sell this house if YOU can cancel the contract if your house doesn't close?"

You're under no obligation to accept this clause... and he's under no obligation to accept your offer.

Hi Catladie11.I've been doing multiple searches online browsing around for little houses in the South Portland area,and came across your question here in this Trulia forum.I am just an interested browsing buyer...not a realter or an investor.I may be interested in your lil' house...perhaps! I love living over here in the South Portland/Cape Elizabeth area! i also noticed that it says that you are also familiar with the Hallowell area?I used to live,many years ago,in Farmingdale(between Hallowell and Gardiner)...beautiful area as well.Anywho,if you feel like dropping me an email and maybe giving me first dibs on a look at your lil' home...(even though I probably wouldn't be able to afford it;)...)feel free to drop me a line.I guess I had better register or set up an account with Trulia first..?;)I'll leave my info in another reply once I get registered.Thanks!:) ... more
