To have agents call you wanting to list your home submit it through this link:

If you really want to sell your home and get the most for your home you'd at the very least hire a discount broker to put it in the mls so buyers and their agents can see it. When agents search for homes to meet their buyers needs they search the mls and not trulia/zillow. And the agents I know specifically tell their clients to not search trulia/zillow as they aren't connected to our mls and are either outdated or missing listings. ... more

Nice home!

Our MLS doesn't syndicate to Trulia/Zillow. You are going to want to have a conversation with your agent about getting it posted as she would have to post it manually or use a 3rd party service to get it posted here. If she doesn't know how she can ask her broker or office admin about posting to Trulia. You'll also want to ask her about Zillow as it's not showing up there either. ... more

You may want to be careful as depending on how you do it Metrolist may consider it marketing prior to being active. May want to invite agent over for bpo's.

Have your agent place it on Trulia. It is not automatic unless he agent signs up for an auto feed.

Hi Stephen,

Inspections up front are often a good idea, since this can lead to higher offers in a multiple offer environment if the buyers are aware of any issues, and are more comfortable about bidding higher.

Kind regards,

If you are now ready to sell, despite our low inventory of homes, I am a believer in presenting a home in its best possible condition to encourage multiple offers. If its the original 13 yr old carpet, I'd say replace it with something of a neutral color. I believe in marketing a home aggressively and would be happy to discuss that with you. ... more

Post is from three and a half years ago so I am sure that if you did not sell or default you are pretty close to breaking even or seeing your $200k again. I need more information to give you adequate advice. Based on the little information you provided it sounds like you need to sell but you do not want to loose out on your $200k and I wouldn't either. Depending on your personal circumstance I think that handing it over to a property management company and renting it out is your best bet because the market will bring that $540k price back eventually. You just have to wait it out. Look at it as an investment or return on your money. Even if you had to come out of pocket a few hundred dollars per month you would be seeing about a 900% return while paying down the loan.

With out more information about your exact circumstance I will be giving you to much information that will not apply. My advice, consult with a Realtor you feel you can trust, get along with, and can communicate with you clearly. Good Luck!

Hi Mary,

It's been 30 days since you posted your inquiry. I hope you've had the success you were looking for. Most homes (at least the ones that fit into the majority demographic) are sold within the first 30 days. If yours hasn't sold, check in with your agent(s) and review your marketing plan. This is the time to be most aggressive with your marketing as your listing is still somewhat fresh. Stale listings can give the appearance of desperation and may result in a difficult escrow if you're lucky enough to get in one after 60 days. You're also heading into peak sales season meaning, while you're likely to see more buyers, they're also likely to see more of your competition. Take charge of your listing and utilize the expertise of your agent(s) to get it sold within these first couple of months.

Best of luck,

Brian Frank answered:
Is your job relocating you or are you moving for a new job?? Some relocation companies and larger employers are assisting in these situations. The Gov't has figured they know best and are making lenders use HVCC on conventional financing. As other agents noted some appraisals are coming in incorrectly. What can happen is an out of town appraiser, will perform an appraisal in a given area using comps within 1 mile that are not true comps, meaning lower quality contruction or using a primarily rental neighborhood comps and or not equal condition.

Peter Curtis answered:
If there are comparable homes that recently sold in your subdivision or street for that matter it should not really matter what homes outside of your subdividion go for unless the appraiser is having a hard time getting an accurate price. I would not worry about it. Appraisers do not use program algorithms like Trulia and Zillow. They have to get actual properties to compare to, to get an opinion of value, so you will not have a problem with those. Plus, you can always disagree with an opinion of value. I have done it several times. If the apprasier is lazy or does not know the area you can get another appraiser to challenge the first one. All an appraisal is, is an opinion of value of a specific property at a specific time.
If you need an appraiser let me know. I have several good ones.
