Trulia does not allow for sale by owner listings. You can however list FSBO on Zillow or list the house with an agent and they will sindicate it to this site and many more.
Good luck!

Well, I hope they were a little more diplomatic than that, but regardless of their delivery, they are absolutely correct!! By not making the home look (and smell) it's best, you are leaving money on the table! ... more

Buy the house at the sheriff's sale and flip it to recoop your loses. If he hasn't paid the taxes either you can pick it up at a tax sale. Once you hold the tax certificate for 5 years - you own it.
What is the address?

My NC Homes Team answered:
FHA loans do have some requirements regarding condition, however there's no pre-qualifying a property for an FHA or VA loan. I would suggest that it may make sense if you're concerned to have your home pre-inspected by a home inspector and then your Realtor can leave a copy of this report out as part of their marketing and can referr to your home as "pre-inspected" If there are issues that come up in the inspection, it would make sense to get any serious ones addressed before the sale. ... more

Sunday for sure is the best day, i would definately put directional signs at the ends of the streets pointing to your Open House. Are you a FSBO? Also place an ad on Craigslist "OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY at 123 GOLD ST" with pics and information on your home. You should be able to also post that info on other sites that you are using to market your home.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me, I will be more than happy to assist you.

OOPS! I forgot to mention a most important point in my last post. YOU DON'T REALLY NEED a real estate agent at all if you are willing to do some work yourself. However, you DO NEED an attorney, one with extensive real estate law background, not just any attorney. You can find all sorts of information online about how to market, list, show, sell your home as a For-Sale-By-Owner, or "fizz-bow" FSBO. Agents hate FSBO's like an uninvited leper in their living room. ... more

You really need to ask your agent. He/She may not even be aware. Only the agent can go in and mark a status change and if they don't double check before they save well the wrong box might get checked. Call your agent NOW and tell him/her so they can fix it NOW. All of the other answers are correct as well. The best of luck to you!!

If you listed your house and it won't sell , as far as a time frame well it all depends on how long you can pay two mortgages, or mortgage and rent. Everyone's situation is different, our company is unique and located in Shreveport, LA. we are networked with most of the investors in Shreveport, Bossier City area, and if your house does not qualify for any of our programs. We can point you in the right direction free of charge. So the real question is...

What will happen if you don't sell your house?

Hannah- I just cringe when I hear stories like this! Some realtors are clueless about mid century modern homes. I specialize in mid century modern homes in Charlotte NC and my homes are keeping pace in sales price to their traditional counterparts and even surpassing them. These homes are in demand and popularity is growing! I hope you can find a realtor that values these homes and knows how to market them! Go to www.lottaliving.com and you can post your home and also check out the message board for discussions on various topics. Please take a look at my web site www.ModernCharlotte.com to see how I market these listings. It may give you some ideas. From your replies, it looks like you already have some interest! Good luck and don't you dare sell your house for $50K less than the traditional comps! Also check out www.MoveModern.com which is another free listing site. ... more

Hi Hannah,

An agent who can appreciate the unique aspects of your home and market those aspects would be a good fit for you. The thing I love about South Highland is the variety of architectural styles in the neighborhood.

Of course, I would love to list your home, and you can check out my profile here:

http://activerain.com/shreveportrealestate to see everything I do when I list a home.

Or you're welcome to visit my Shreveport real estate blog here:

http://shreveporthomeconnection.com to get an idea of what I would be like to work with.

If you would like to work with a Realtor whose primary listing market is the South Highland neighborhood, I can refer you to one of my colleagues who has many years experience in that area. I'm sure she would do a good job for you.

You will probably get more answers here from other agents. I would suggest that you take the time to visit their website if they have one to find out a little more about them.

In the meantime, if you would like to see the homes that are currently on the market near your home, go to
http://shreveporthomesareselling.nwla.mlxchange.com, click on the Property Search tab, then Residential, and enter South Highland in the Subdivision field. That pulls information directly from the MLS and will show you the homes currently on the market.

Sorry for being so long-winded. I hope this was of help to you.

Scott Friestad answered:
Homes on or near Tacoma Blvd are valued between $30,000 and $60,000. Depending on the condition of the home, exact location on Tacoma and more details, it is hard to say what you should ask for it. Here is the deal...Find a great listing agent, get it on the market and let the market tell you what it is worth! Start where the agent thinks it is good, then reduce the price every two weeks till it sells. The market will tell you how much the home is worth! No agent or CMA will tell you how much it will sell for, a ready, willing and able buyer will determine what the home is worth!

Hope this helps!
