The problem we have here with the Triangle MLS is that they rely on a compay called ListHub to upload all the listings to other websites. ListHub had issues with both Zillow & Trulia and have refused to upload to them. To make it onto these two sites, the listing company has to do a manual upload and by the way, unless Trulia has altered their course since being absorbed by Zillow, Trulia does not accept For Sale By Owners and that may be an issue as well.

Good Luck

It flows automatically with whatever is in the MLS. Any updates have to be done by Click It who will most likely charge you extra since they typically aren't know for doing full service listings. ... more

It will open your sale up to more buyers, so it should sell higher i.e. same supply and you increased the demand. One way to calculate it is to see how it relates to monthly payment. Calculate the monthly payment for a loan at current interest rates then subtract your monthly payment. Then, convert that difference into how much the lower payment is worth. For example, lets say the difference is $10, and the cost of financing is $5 per thousand, the value of the savings is at most $2,000. You will probably not get someone to pay the theoretical value, as they will want "a deal". So, the buyer would pay you the cash to cover the difference between your purchase price and the loan principal, and your price might be able to be higher due to the better monthly interest rate. On the other hand, you need to recognize that your deal will not appeal to buyers with little cash, as it will take a decent down payment to make this work.

Nila Maceda Kucharski, GRI answered:
Your agent is almost always correct. If you find this property in a website for pre foreclosed properies, the dollar amount listed is probably the amount that is in default - like maybe the equity line/loan or the balance of the 1st/2nd mortgage. I checked the MLS and there is nothing in Brushwood for this price. You may want to go back to your agent and ask for active listings in the MLS in your price range. ... more
