I apologize for the inconvenience it has caused you. Zillow For Sale By Owner listings coming over to Trulia is a new feature recently rolled out because of this we have confirmed there is a technical error regarding Zillow not sending us the Property Owner's phone number through the Buyer's Agent List located on the main photo of the property page that's why it is not displayed in the contact info section. Please also edit your Trulia profile and input your phone number so it will appear on your property listing page. Kindly follow the instructions below.

1. Log in to your Trulia profile
2. Hover your mouse to your name located at the upper right corner of the page and click 'Profile'
3. Input your phone number and click 'Save'

Once you updated your phone number on your Trulia profile, it will automatically appear on your listing page after 24 to 48 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Hi, Commission rates are negotiable and can vary. The key to negotiating the best rate is to compare and interview several agents in your local area. We started UpNest ( to help you compare top agents that compete to earn your business. Since agents compete for you, they offer their very best rates and services. You'll also get to "comparison shop" like you do for all the other things you usually pay for. It's free and there's no risk to try us out, Good luck! ... more

Altimere off of Hollins Road has some really pretty patio homes . very near the roanoke county line in botetourt county. These are 2 or 3 bedroom patio homes with 2 car oversized garages. there is a HOA for the lawn maintenance, etc. Not too far f rom Cloverdale. Square footages run around 1500 to 1800 i think. There is also a new cluster group off of Read Mountain Road just off of Cloverdale Road betweel Daleville and Roanoke. They are called the Cottages at Steeple Chase and have just begun to be built.

They are very close to I81 access. you can check them out on the Botetourt County GIS probably. if you are able to pull up addresses using the GIS system, you can then look at the Google web site that shows you the house at Street Level.

There is no law that requires it but I have never been told no by a seller when I asked for copies. Yes usage is individualized but if you are looking to purchase out in the country then you also need to check which company. Co-ops tend to be more expensive. ... more

Regina Sparks answered:
Lenders look at more than just credit score but it is a big part. My advice would be to use a local lender because they are much easier to work with when you can sit down and talk to them in person rather than just phone calls and emails. If you need any help I have several lenders I work with regularly. First step get that pre approval letter! ... more

Jackie Boyd answered:
Yes, there are several furnished "corporate apartments" offered. You can probably get to most of them by googling. There are also entire complexes of furnished units with fully equipped kitchens that a lot of my clients stay in until they're closing date. The name of those is Affordable Efficiency Inn's and there are at least 3 locations in the Roanoke Valley. Call me when you're in town - I'd love to work with you to help you find your home.
My Best,
