Yes, your agent can pull up this info through an MLS search, and then do a quick CMA (Comparative Market Analysis) and that should have an average for all the columns at the bottom, including DOM (Days on Market). If you are looking for average days on market with relation to a specific home, it would be more effective to have this data researched in your neighborhood, type, and size of property, rather than for the whole city or even zip code.

Kind regards,

Why were you not given a copy of the listing agreement? Don't know. That is something you should be asking your agent. If you did not do an electronic signature it shouldn't take anyone more than 24 hours to scan and email a copy

Also, it should not have been blank. It should clearly state listing dates, commissions, etc. Call up the agent and ask for a copy of your listing agreement.

Good luck with your sale and I hope your experience gets better.

You need to address this with your listing agent. He/she can manually edit the listing here. Not all MLSs syndicate to Trulia. And even if they can take weeks for updates to occur. That's why I tell all my clients to NEVER rely on these so-called real estate websites like Trulia, Zillow and even I just entered a new listing in the MLS 6 hours ago and it's STILL not showing up here. My last listing still showed as "Active" even up until a week AFTER closing!

Please do not put too much stock in this website. It's very very mediocre.

I use to calculate all financial aspects of buying, owning and eventually selling a home. It is a great, easy-to-use calculator to perform sophisticated break-even analysis in simple terms, ESPECIALLY FOR 1st-TIME HOMEBUYERS. It is educational and helpful in breaking down all real costs of homeownership, including closing costs, renovations, mortgage financing options, real estate taxes + HO insurance, title charges/insurance, transfer taxes and broker commissions. Invaluable tool for analyzing your house purchase as an investment, and whether it makes sound financial sense at a listed offering price. It actually helped me present a strong case to seller as to why price should be lower than what was originally asking. ... more

Ultimately anyone can tell you a price and many sellers end up making the wrong decision by selecting the agent that provided the highest price. Be wise and do some research. I would start by asking about their companies marketing reach. Are they world wide, national or just local and I would continue to ask about their specific marketing activities. Some Realtors pay significant dollars to make sure their ads appear on top. Also, look for the following.

1) Title

Are they a Realtor or a Broker Associate? A broker associate is qualified and licensed to not only help the public purchase and sell Real Estate, but are also licensed to manage agents and own their own brokerage. The State of California requires that a broker be qualified, educated and prepared to manage agents that report to them. If their qualified and versed in Real Estate to this extent wouldn’t you want one to represent you personally?

2) Designations

Commitment to being the best educated in the field. Selecting a credentialed agent also provides you with assurances that the agent knows what they're doing. Look for, at a minimum the CRS along with the GRI designations. Some of these designations are only offered to Realtor's that meet certain production requirements. There are more designations, but these will be a good start.

3) Testimonials

The real personality of the agent shines when others put into words how they were treated. Look for the character in these for authenticity. Remember, not everybody uses the same words or cliche'.

4) Communication

Does your agent answer their phone? Are they readily accessible during work hours, after hours or weekends? Are they full-time or part time? You usually can tell if they’re not answering the phone between certain hours or don't return your calls

5) Availability

Does it feel like you’re their only client? Many Realtors have a full plate every day, but the ones that are skilled with making you feel like they are an agent exclusively working for you is an important factor to take into consideration.

6) Negotiation Ability

Does the agent project confidence? Whats their back ground like? Does the agent have those qualities that tell you they’ll represent you through thick and thin and will not be driven solely by a paycheck? There is a fiduciary responsibility licensed agents have with their clients and you should expect no less.

7) Personality

Don't be fooled. Have you every selected a doctor, surgeon, lawyer, CPA out of convenience or because they were the life of a party, family member, friend or neighbor? I hope the answer is no. We always want the best of the best when it’s coming to something critical. Just because your not magnetically attracted to the individual that sounds perfect, doesn't mean they are not the right Realtor.

Sheryl Arndt answered:
Hello Dickbfield, if you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve and you can be emailed listings to fit your search criteria.

Are you looking to pay all cash or need financing? Homes that are in need of repair do not qualify for most traditional financing and you may consider 203k loans. A Streamline 203k loan can be utilized to repair from 5k up to 35k and the standard 203k loan from 5k up to maximum loan limit per county and can also include up to 6 months of payments while the work is being completed.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs.

You will also need to be pre-approved to be able to meet an agent to view and submit offers on any homes of your choice. You may qualify FHA from fico scores between 500-579 with 10% down or minimum 580 fico score may qualify FHA 3.5% down or as low as .5% half percent down payment program. You may consider 3% down conventional from a minimum 620 fico score.

The purchase in Stockton start from 40-50k for 1bd 1ba condo and the single family homes start from 35k for 3bd 1ba home which is as low as $200 down payment with a minimum 580 fico score.

If you have credit issues, your credit scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary. It only takes a few dozen questions to qualify, go over your options and email you listings to study and compare. Here are some links to study as well as web reference links to many loan program pages offered...

Henry Brooks answered:
Good morning...

My wife and I own 8 properties with 28 tenants from Tracy, Manteca, Ripon, Salida & Riverbank. If I were buying more property, I would focus on Manteca, Ripon & Salida. These are all very strong values vs Tracy simply based on inventory. In terms of appreciation, the increase between Tracy & Manteca is very like/same, but you truly get more in Manteca and if your parents appreciate the smaller town feel, without all the Bay Area overflow and inflated prices, I would search Manteca and possible sell or rent their current home in Tracy. Feel free to call or text me anytime to chat some more @ 209-814-0119. Have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! Your Friend & Realtor, Henry Brooks;-) ... more
