Hi,

The data you reported is coming from your county records, because of this, I am unable to edit or remove the information. This data is gathered by a third-party data collector and only updates on Trulia when discrepancies are identified in the next data collection cycle. Unfortunately, we are unable to expedite this process.

That said, you have the ability to edit your home facts that appear in the Owner Information section. This includes editing the number of bedrooms/bathrooms, square footage, home features, description and more.

Please know the 'Edit Home Facts' feature is currently removed from all property pages. While we do not have a timeframe for when this will be restored, I can assure you this is only temporary.

Our best recommendation is to check with the county to ensure the information is correct at the source.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Removing a leech, is it good or bad? It's good. Unless your home is worth over 500K, DO NOT USE A REALTOR. Prices of homes are going up, yet 6-7% commission remains constant, that's an average of $12,000.. Poof gone....does that make any sense to you? Me neither, I guess in the realty world common sense just isn't common.
Don't be fooled, a realtor will say anything to justify their ridiculously asinine commission. Ask yourselves, if it was justifiable would it even need to be mentioned? Go and read some of the other comments realtors have left on here, the one thing their good at is making their job seem harder than it is. FLAT RATE LISTING IS THE FUTURE, they list your home the exact same way, plus go the extra mile and list it on multiple other listing sites in your area. You have a personal agent that does everything they do, for a fraction of the cost!!!! If you choose to go with a realtor after reading this I do not feel sorry for you.

Find the agent with a personality that works best with you and who will work hard for you.
Some are experts in the local area. Some have more stats and more creative ideas to get your home listed and sold in a timely matter.
Also, some have more unique marketing plans. The bigger agencies have an advantage to whom they market with. Yet, some of the single agents will work harder because they are trying to compete again the big team agents.

I would be happy to speak with you. Are you buying or selling?

It depends if your home is prepped ready to go. The more prepped you are, the better chances it will sell. With limited inventory, homes that are nice, prepped and priced correctly will sell in a reasonable amount of time.

You're completely misunderstanding the purpose of the make me move feature that Zillow has. Make me move is for those who aren't officially listing their house, but would gladly move/sell if offered the "right price." It isn't for those actively selling their home, and it also has nothing to do with being flexible on price. Make me move is specifically for those who are NOT actively selling their home.

You can chose to not negotiate on your price, but that is something totally different and occurs at a stage separate from listing and showing the home. Also, the list price is only one piece of the various negotiations that take place during a home sale. Honestly, you have no choice in the matter about how "serious" buyers are and your attitude is likely to drive off potential buyers - especially those who are educated in how home sales actually work.

Trulia no longer allows agents to manually enter a listing. You have to have an auto feed from your MLS or use a site that will take your listings and post to sites like Trulia. Another good place to post a listing is Active Rain, I placed a link for a free account. ... more

As a retired realtor and having replied to hundreds of similar questions, let me add to Derek's answer. Real estate websites like Zillow, Trulia, etc. get their information from counties across the U.S. Many home owners don't realize that your local tax assessor can legally give away property information on everybody's home. It's public information. This includes: lot size, square footage, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, number of garages, type of home (condo, multi family, single family, mobile or manufactured home, etc.), when home was built, property taxes paid, etc.

Public information that is NOT included: whether you did any upgrades / renovations or not unless the county knows about it with a permit; school district information, neighborhood information, condition of your home, layout, etc. Remember, these are MAJOR things that buyers take into consideration before submitting an offer. However, these items are NEVER included in real estate estimates online.

Real estate websites like to have consistency throughout the U.S. so they restrict their estimates to public information that can be applied to any home in the country. This is why websites state in writing that estimates are a starting point and are NOT to be used in a real estate transaction. Therefore, save your lawyer fees because you will not win. If it's any consolation to you, I know there is a class action lawsuit against Zillow. Care to join? I'm also curious because Zillow had a question and answer board until it closed earlier this year. It was about the same time as they were getting hit with massive class action suits. Coincidence?

Hi,

Upon checking, the property is currently not for sale. My recommendation is to post the property as For Sale so you can upload updated photos. To post your home for sale by owner on Trulia, click the link below and select Submit listings for sale.

You will be redirected to our partner site, Zillow. Once you activate your listing on Zillow, it will appear on Trulia within 24 hours.

Your contract with the buyer should have stated specifically when your buyer can start collecting rent. Typically that means the date your condo was sold. I don't think you can collect next month's rent. The other issue is did you collect a security deposit? What happens with that money? ... more

Hi,

The data you reported is coming from your county records, because of this I am unable to edit the information. This data is gathered by a third-party data collector and if correct with your county, it will be updated on Trulia when the updated data gets sent to us. My best recommendation would be to contact your county to ensure that the public records are up to date.

If the county records are correct and Trulia has not received the updated data yet, owners have the ability to edit their home facts on Trulia which appear in the 'Owner Information' section. Please know that edit home facts feature is currently removed from the property pages while we improve the feature. While we do not have a specific date for when they will be available, I can assure you this is only temporary. We thank you for your patience.

Shawnanicole21 answered:
I should add that there's only two listings in my area that I can afford so we won't be driving around looking at that many houses and I really feel like my condo will sell itself.

I'm just confused because when my husband and I went to look at houses without her one of the agents told me she wasn't doing us any favors and he could do much better commission wise (of course right? But still)

Also, I feel like she wants to do everything on her terms too which isn't good for me because I like things my way (sorry but true).
I haven't signed any papers yet and I'm happy about that because I really don't want to pay 5%.. we are literally putting all our eggs in one basket, we need every penny we can get.

Please help! I need advice. Thanks
