Is it listed with an agent? If you uploaded the pictures yourself Trulia should have emailed you. Otherwise you claim it by going to the listing and I believe it's in the bottom left. It will walk you through a verification process. I live and work in Lebanon. I sold 687 Natalie last year. I would love to help you if you choose to have a Realtor. Thank you! Hope this helps. ... more

Either would work better than the old furniture you currently have based on the condition you mentioned. Staging typically showcases the space well best but buyers will still identify potential with simple actions like cleaning and excellent lighting ... more

YES! You need an advocate for you. Your Realtor friend is representing her buyer, not you. So, you deserve representation. Your listing agent can negotiate for you and get you top dollar for your home. Always choose a Realtor when trying to buy or sell a home. ... more

Ernie Behrle answered:
The first thing you should do is call the company of that agent and ask to speak to his/her broker in charge. So many issues can be resolved satisfactorily that way. If your Realtor IS the company, than typically going to the local or state real estate commission. Just make sure you have your facts straight and in writing ready to go. ... more

It is the agent's job to highlight the best features of your home, along with help from you with regard to supplying information about updates and special features. If you have done what is needed cosmetically, in terms of condition, painting, and it is in a good location and it is priced correctly, all of these things considered, the buyers will know this as they will be comparing your property with others. ... more

In my humble opinion only Tim Hensley could answer this best. However, I can tell you that from my quick review of recent transfers it would calculate out to $160/sf. I've seen as high as $250 and as low as $107 for their work. I would highly caution you to utilize that as any gauge for pricing. You need to quantify many things before you can do that.

You should consider whether the lot is included, the fit and finish, as well as overall construction style and or quality. Different finish levels can certainly add cost; arched entry ways, coffered ceilings, kitchen finishings among many other details. Foundation pour, insulation, lighting/electric, plumbing and other structural upgrades should be considered.

I hope this helps, please let me know if I can be of any further assistance. I'm happy to answer any of your questions or give you a second opinion.

Elizabeth Spear answered:
Hello, We're local agents who live in Lebanon. I don't see an actual address associated with this property or we might be able to provide you some insight into the details. Our experience with area lender owned properties is that there are often condition issues. With no one occupying them, they're prone to deterioration and a drop in value. We've encountered homes with significant mold issues, broken pipes, vandalism and theft inside of furnace parts.

By itself, one lender owned property by itself isn't going to pull down the neighborhood values provided there are other sales holding "normal" value. The problem is when a neighborhood has an abundance of foreclosed homes, and unfortunately that may lead to depressed values for everyone.

I am familiar with your subdivision as I represent a small subdivision right up the street at Sunrise Ridge. The developer there is also experiencing a very difficult time selling these lots. We have reduced them by 60% and still no offers.
Are your market homes currently on all the available websites? Like Trulia and others? I know that my listings are syndicated to more than 75 different websites thru Point2. I live in Landen and have driven through that area often. If they are held open I could go through them to see how they show.
I really don't get on Trulia much but got an email from them and saw your post.

Barbara Q. answered:
Jake - Even when you are listed with an agent...Buyers sometimes make additional requests after the inspection or during the attorney review and if the Seller will not comply...the Buyer chooses to walk.

So don't take it personally.

Typically one point or 1% of the loan amount will buy the rate down 1/8-1/4% depending on the lender.

I would offer $3,000-$5,000 in closing costs which can be used for discount points and other fees associated with the loan. (as an example) ... more

Hang in there...Buyers are generally not in a big hurry in this market. The other agent was right when she said there is no norm. I have had people come to listings 4 times with no offer produced. Don't give up hope, but don't hold your breath either.

Good luck!

Tina Turner answered:
It sounds like a few phone calls need to be made.
1) Title company - tell them of their mistakes and ask for their help
2) Your agent - ask him/her to track some of the info down. Have them call the HMS rep for the area and explain the double payment, etc.
3) Start dailing the phone and call the places where you made the double payments. You should have examined the HUD statement a little closer before signing it (however, in your defense, often the title company throws it at you the day of closing and you don't have time to cross examine the nickel and dime items).

Remember, you'll catch more bees with honey and try to catch these people at the first to mid month (the end of the month is most hectic to ask for corrections to be made)

Lisa Sparks answered:
I'd suggest you become very familiar with your competition. In this market, you need to be aggressive. If you’re getting showings, positive feedback, and no offers, it’s probably time to review your price and make a necessary adjustment. Also, what is your time frame for moving? If you want to move soon, then you might want to have your price adjusted. There is no magic number for the ‘right’ time to reduce your price. Every situation is different. Based on the information you’ve provided, a price reduction might be your best solution. ... more

Good Heavens---I hope you're not paying this agent anything! If you have this many questions and really need to sell your condo, please, please hire a full time professional who can guide you from start to finish. With the number of units Drees sold of your floor plan there has to be plenty of comparable sales to choose from--recent sales that show what your property should sell for. Incentives DO NOT sell homes. You're trying to save money on a full time agent yet you're talking about giving it away in a sales concession/incentive.

My clients receive the best sale to list price ratios--better than their competition because we study the market and work the market we're in. If you want the help, I'm an email away.

Good luck!
