Of course you can, but would you get showing after you list it on FSBO?

You can only work with one at a time if you signed an exclusive listing agreemtn with them. After this much time, there is a reason. Look hard at the Price, the location, the style, the decor, the smell, the pets, etc that are in the home.
Then, make sure you home is listed on every web site. If you jus do a search by address, your home should pull up.

Did you get professional pictures? Clean the home? Is is priced appropriately? Have there been open houses? How does your home stack compared to the homes that have sold?

Best of luck toyou!
Your listing agreement has a termination date. Take a look and see if you are close to it. Then you can hire another realtor. Thanks,

Hi Nicole,

Thank you for your answer.

The community of Victoria Grove has 24 homes on the market right now, so lots of inventory.

This is a wonderful community, our Home Owners Association does a great job keeping the landscaping , parks and pool well maintained. In addition, the community is very safe, we have our own patrol day and night. So anyone buying a home here, will love it. I do!

I will try to be patient, the home selling process is tedious, but worth it.

Thanks again.

I know this question is dated but thought I'd add my comments, Zillow and other websites are worthless for estimating value for a unique property like yours, actually the best way is to have the parcel appraised. There will not be enough data in a CMA to make an accurate market analysis. ... more

Alain...please contact me and I'll do a complete BPO (Broker Price Opinion) for you. It's usually more accurate than a simple CMA and I've done many for lenders and asset management companies.

Dear Mary Ann,

Some agents will offer to list your home "Pro Bono" as they are first starting out to get their feet wet. As you may assume, these agents are probably not the most experienced or knowledgeable agents.

Rather than scrimp on the commission, you may want to find an agent that is an expert in their area and ask if they are willing to take your listing for 2.5% or even 2% to the listing agent. Chances are that a good agent will earn that 2-3% commission by getting you more for your property. A "Pro Bono" agent may actually end up costing you more.

I hope this helps!

Jason McIntyre answered:
According to the most reliable sources, Riverside home values increased from 12-25% in 2013 with Orangecrest leading the charge. In the latest news, DS News reported a 1.6% increase in home values from February of 2014 to March of 2014.

Spring is often a hot season for home values and when coupled with very competitive mortgage rates, I believe the market in Riverside will continue to increase into Summer and taper off in Fall and Winter. You can see what your home is currently work by going to my website at and clicking on the Home Values Tab. Just enter your address and your screen will immediately display comparable properties near you. If you want a full Home Value Report just call me at 951 201-3427 and I will be happy to provide you with a complete analysis. Thank you!

Sheryl Drake answered:
I recommend that you call a Title Company (Ticor, First American) - Ask to speak with a Title Officer. Supply the address of the home and they will pull the lien/s and tell you how to clear it. They are very helpful .

Don't do this on your own as when you sell your home you will need it to clear title and if you don't do it right they won't insure the title anyway. They won't charge you to steer you I the right direction and they are the professionals.

Being a Broker when we encounter a lien on title or a problem we immediately contact our title officer for advice. In some cases there even security bonds that can be purchased when a lien holder disappears or you can prove payment has been satisfied.

Right now we are experiencing a very thin market of available homes, so if priced correctly it should sell very quickly since there is less competition. June is an excellent time to sell rapidly because many buyers have kids and like to move over the summer. ... more

skim answered:
Seller can cancel. It sucks because the buyer can only sue for out of pocket expense. To go after the seller for "Specific Performance" is futile and costly. There's nothing the buyer can do or be compensated for the lost time and agony. Sellers today are taking advantage of realtors and the system in hopes of delaying foreclosure. It's a silly game that's becoming more prevalent everywhere. This is one of the reasons why I steer my clients away from shortsales that are occupied by the owner. Vacant shortsales are good. ... more

Absolutely. You can pick your own agent. It should (if the Realtor is good_ save you some time and hassle.

I recommend talking to 2-3 realtors with strong profiles on Trulia, or Yelp..

Good luck.
