Hello,

To start, I would like to note that the Trulia estimate is an estimate derived from our proprietary algorithm. Our estimates use a ton of info, including recent sales of similar homes and home facts like number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage, and more to provide insight into what a home is worth. This data is compiled from public records and other sources for counties across the US. Please know that we do not intend for the estimate to replace a comparative market analysis as they can take into account market intricacies that the Trulia Estimate cannot. The Trulia Estimate is really meant to be a starting point in determining a home’s value and is not an official appraisal. To learn more about the Trulia estimate, we encourage our users to follow this link: http://www.trulia.com/trulia_estimates//.

Please also note that we do not directly edit or remove Trulia estimates. While we monitor customer feedback for systematic issues with the algorithm, we do not change individual estimates in response to customer feedback. We understand however, that some homes may be unique in ways that are not well captured by existing data. To provide more information on your estimate, we encourage you to claim your home and update its facts if you notice any information is outdated.

Updates to your home facts will be factored into your home's Trulia estimate, however, if the updates are not significant enough to impact the home's value, your estimate may not change.

If you're looking for a precise value for your home, we recommend you talk to a real estate professional.

http://www.trulia.com/directory/

One thing to consider is that when you do put your home on the market, the Trulia estimate will disappear as it is a feature only available for off market properties.

I hope the information I provided today was helpful in addressing your concerns.

For future reference, you can feel free to contact us about this type of inquiry through our contact form here:

The roads are typically plowed/sanded/salted within a reasonable amount of time. A lot depends on how bad a storm is and of course the Main Roads are usually plowed first.

I understand this is an older thread, just thought I would add my two cents in case anyone new reads this.

Like many of the other members said, what is not good, that is a subjective term. That being said you should know that there are a number of products on the market that can help people with lower credit scores. Programs like FHA loans, SONYMA loans, SONYMA FHA+, SONYMA "Achieving the Dream" just to name a few. I would suggest contacting a mortgage broker to go through your financial history to determine where you stand. ... more

The main thing to understand about homes that you see listed in various places as pre-foreclosure is that the vast majority will never get to foreclosure. You would probably be better served contacting a buyer's agent and giving them your criteria, let the professionals do the leg work for you so that you will be able to decide between homes that are actually for sale. The buyer's agent should be fully compensated by the seller so that it costs you nothing to have an expert working for you, what's better than that?

Work with a local Realtor, familiar with the Deer Park area of NY and the surroundings not only to assist you in finding the right place for you, arrange showings and accompany you, but also to guide you through the entire process, DO NOT DO THIS ON YOUR OWN.....

BUYING OR RENTING PROPERTY REQUIRES TO PAY ATTENTION TO ALL DETAILS INVOLVED in order not to make a mistake or the wrong decision.... you need an experienced Realtor on your side.
If you need recommendations let me know.... and advice: Trust and commit to ONE Realtor only,
so that he or she can also be fully committed to YOU and work in your very BEST interest, their services are free to you, as Buyers Agents usually will be paid by the sellers/side at the closing if and when the property is listed on the multiple listing service by a Realtor/Brokerage.

Good luck to you!

Thomas Brady answered:
Usually when you have homes that are strongly affected by location influences it is reflected in the price. I have been on listing appointments where the LIRR was in the backyard, when they reduced the price enough eventually it sold. While such a property might not be right for you, or most buyer's, once you hit the right price point almost anything will sell.

Commission is always negotiable between you and your agent, there are no set standards; therefore choose your agent with care and not by commission alone.

It certainly looks like the bottom of the market. Inventory is dropping for the first time in half a decade. There are bidding wars again on the best properties. When in doubt, talk with the Atlantic Group in the East Hampton office of Prudential Douglas Elliman. They are the best team in the business. ... more
