I apologize we have an incorrect photo for your home on Trulia and I am happy to provide some insight on this. When a property is off market, the default image is provided to us from Google images of which we do not have the ability to edit or remove. Off market homes do not appear in general search results, so anyone browsing for listings in your area will not come across your property page. The only way to find your home on our site right now is if someone were to enter your exact property address.

Please be assured if you are intending to sell your home in the future, you (or your agent if you choose to use one), will have the ability to create a new listing with new photos, and submit the listing to Trulia.

The new listing will override the off market property page with the incorrect Google image photo.

However, if you are wanting to pursue this incorrect image further, my best recommendation is to contact Google directly to request they blur out the incorrect home. This change will translate to your page on Trulia. I understand this is not exactly the resolution you were looking for, and I do apologize for that. Here would be the steps if you choose to go this route:

From your Trulia property page, click 'View Map' on the bottom right of the Google image.
Click 'Street View'.
Click 'Report a problem'.
Fill out the form and click 'Submit'.

To find out what price your house could sell for would be to make appointments with 1-3 Realtors. It doesn't cost anything for an agent to come to your home to do a market analysis. They are hoping to show you what they can do to sell your home. Beware of the agent that gives you the highest price because that agent is just telling you what you want to hear so they can put a sign in your front yard to advertise themselves. Go with the agent that gives you a price and can back it up by showing you at least 3 homes that are similar to yours that are currently for sale and can show you at least 3 homes that did sell. That is the agent that is giving you the real information. You want an agent that won't tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. An appraisal helps in that you cannot sell a house for more than what it appraises for, unless the buyer wants to put more money down or is paying cash and want to pay more than what the appraiser says it's worth. Not many buyers will do that. I hope this helps. ... more

Hi Seallion,

If you are interested in Tenants rights I have what is called "Renting in VT". It is a book all about the rights and responsibilities associated with Renting and what landlords can and can't do. As well as what timelines they have to follow. I can e-mail you a copy if you like. ... more

It depends a lot on how far from the trail the home is, and whether it is higher or lower than the level of the rail trail itself. Homes above the trail will hear more noise than those below. ... more

Good afternoon,

It appears you were asking about schools in Essex Junction. The elementary school depends on what area of town the property is in. I have posted a link below that will show you the schools in Essex/Essex Junction. If you have any questions please ask.

Hi Maria-

Do you have the listing on Trulia? Once you find it, I'd recommend working with an agent who is an expert on the area and can help you learn more about that specific property. To find an expert agent in the area, just click on the yellow button on the property's listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Hi Allie,

The Vermont Historical Society would be a great resource, you can find them online at Additionally, I believe you would be able to find resources at the Shelburne Museum as well.
