Yes, you will need a real estate professional to list your home on Trulia.

Short sales represented good deals to Buyers in declining markets. Since most markets have recovered from the days of "bust" and values are higher, short sales don't represent the good deal they once did as lenders sought to shed bad debt and created in the process (in my opinion) supply well in excess of demand.

Short sales at very low value and foreclosure sales at very high values, collectively known as "distressed property sales," are not commonly used when appraising homes without "conditions of sale."

I realize this question was posted in 2009 but the question is one I hear often about clients that desire to get out of hustle and bustle and into quaint style living up where nature abounds. I am a New Jersey RE agent living in Warwick NY. We absolutely love Warwick and the West Milford, Hewitt, Greenwood Lake areas. I have a number of great places to recommend if you enjoy hiking, kayaking, nature experiences within those areas.Coming from Saddle River in Bergen County, these town offer something almost surreal: a sense of peace, humbleness and a diverse price range of homes. There are homes that are in the low to moderate price range as well as million dollar properties which are great to keep value in your home especially if you plan on upgrading and renovating. Yes you can find a quaint cottage with nature abounding, there are such adorable homes in these areas. If you would like me to show you a variety of 'quaint lifestyle/cottage style' opportunities, call me or email me. ... more

In addition to speaking with your agent and attorney for options, perhaps you should ask your mortgage representative if there is any way you can have an extension on your interest rate lock on Monday. After all this unfortunate situation is not the fault of yours. On the flip side, you might benefit from a lower rate also, so you should inquire about both.

Good luck to you

Hi, Unfortunately agents are prohibited from talking about area crime and safety due to license laws. You can visit and for in-depth crim stats and area demographics. You can also call the local police dept as well.

I love Ringwood! I love living here and believe it is worth the commute. The beauty of the mountains and sparkling waters make Ringwood one of the NJ's best kept secrets. The price of homes is an extra bonus but not the reason I live here. It is nature's master piece. Ringwood is a very special place to call home! ... more

Hell Yeah, I tested the water and found Mercury and lead, so this will mess you up in the long run! Very small amounts, but it stays in our system for years. So the more you drink, eat and bath, the more you get in you.
Sorry to say this....

Hi Pete,

As others have already said, Trulia doesn't accept FSBO listings at this time, however if you choose to work with a flat fee or full service broker or agent who submits your listing to the MLS, he or she can then submit it to Trulia via the link below.

Best Wishes,

Making it to the finish line is a team effort - but it is important that each member of the team play the role they are supposed to play. Direct interaction between seller and buyer generally is not a positive. You should not be speaking to all parties, the attorneys won't be speaking to all parties, only one party can and should and that is your real estate agent. It is tough enough to make it across the finish line - though you may feel as though your direct involvement with the buyer is adding value, it is very possible that it is doing just the opposite.

If you close successfully in this market then you owe everyone involved a "thank you" - the market is jagged and difficult and we agents are working harder than every to hold deals together - ditto for the mortgage reps and the attorneys. Allow your carefully selected resources to do their jobs and your chances of success will be greatest. Just the opinion of one hard working agent in NJ....

Good luck to you,

In theory, yes, you can change the date. In reality, you need the agreement of the seller. Speak to your attorney or agent for the best on the site advice.

Lyle Wolf answered:
Escalation in Short Sales usually refers to escalating the file (when necessary) to someone higher up in the lender’s organization who can and will take appropriate action. Typically this will be done if the Loss Mitigator appears to be unreasonable in the face of the facts of the situation or not responsive and dragging the process out much too long. It must be done tactfully and diplomatically, and best escalated to the CFO, CEO, SVP, etc. You must present a good case that what you want in the Short Sale is also in the best interests of the lender and that is very clear in the facts of the file. A successful escalation results in a quick approval of the Short Sale. ... more

Christy answered:
I currently take the bus from Butler, NJ and am moving to Ringwood. I researched this and found the following:
The 196 bus is express via the Park and Ride in Ringwood.
The 197 bus can run express or local depending on how many stops it has. You can pick it up along Ringwood Avenue.

The commute will be about an hour and will cost $11 one way. The monthly bus pass will cost around $270 or so. In addition, the subway in NYC is $2.25 per ride. I load my subway card with $45 since I like to walk to work in the mornings and take the subway after work.

There's also a 324 bus that goes to and from Wayne Transit Center and Mother's Park and Ride in Wayne, NJ. That is another option. The 194 is the local bus that services the same park and rides, but make sure you check the schedule. Some of the 194 buses do not service these locations. Also, keep in mind that it will cost $2 to park at these locations.
