This is a general forum. You are better off either looking for an agent that specifically services that area or google established real estate agencies in this particular community, call up and begin a dialogue with one of the agents. ... more

Don't feel bad I have listings that I put in that just fall out overnight. I have submitted them several times with the MLS number and regardless every morning they are missing. I have contacted Trulia for the past 2 weeks and no one will respond. Good luck with getting your photo uploaded. Lets just hope it stays there.
Good luck Laurie

There is a page called FSBO For Sale By Owner. The issue is that you have zero representation. If you list with an agent you have some one that is going to look out for your best interest. They also get amazing exposure like Trulia, Zillow etc which is the engine that most search for properties. It is national marketing and you cant get better exposure. If you go to For sale by owner, people searching in that page expect as a buyer that you are desperate to sell. So beware
Best regard

Are you sure the tree is only half on your property? It seems odd that a tree was planted on two lots. Since the lot next to yours is rental, I would suggest contacting the landlord of the property to see if they would like the tree removed or trimmed. With the tree being half on property you don't own, you have to reach an agreement with the landlord and most likely the tenants. The landlord of the neighboring property would benefit from putting in a fence, and might agree to it if you two can reach an agreement about the cost of tree removal and fence. It's tricky to work out, but would be worth it in the end to get the fence you want along that edge of your property. ... more

You probably need to reconsider this. As Richard said you will be having to deal with a lot of non-sense yourself. An agent filter through a lot of scams and unqualified leads, and not even to mention the amount of paper work. ... more

Your best bet is to push your home onto more websites, so you get your home in front the biggest pool of buyers possible. Just out of curiosity...If an agent could prove HOW they can put more money in your pocket as opposed to doing it solo...would you consider working with a professional? ... more

Scott Godzyk answered:
Rent to own is only good when you have good credit but need 1 year or less to save the down payment and closing costs. It is NOT good for people with bad credit or that can not close in 1 year or less. Sellers do not need to lease as many finally owe less their house is worth and can now sell it,. Most lease purchases are not in any way good for the tenant ... more

Eric D Lenz answered:
The appraisal is very important if you are not happy with the offer you get. There is more to the negotiations than just the appraisal, though. I would recommend that obtain the services of someone experienced in this matter. You don't want to so greedy that you blow up the whole deal or spend too much time and money trying to get more money out of the buyer. An experienced negotiator will get you nothing less than a fair deal.
Good luck!

Duane Murphy answered:
Only if the buyer and seller agree to share that information. It would not be in their best interest to do that. The best advice is to talk with your agent and see what they may think. They can usually have a general idea based upon market stats, time on market, competition, etc.

Best of Luck!

Here's a little info. regarding houses selling in the Wausau, WI area in your price range. In the $460,000 range, one house has sold since Jan. 2009. In the $425,00 to $449,999 range, one house has sold and in the $400,000 to 424,999 range- two houses have sold since Jan. 2009. In the $375,000 to $399,999 range, three homes have sold (your current price range-?-). However, since Jan. 2009, in the range of $350,000 to $374,999 there has been 10 homes sold. Hope this helps in some way to know what is actually selling and the price ranges that are more active. ... more

I only see this as a withdrawn listing. I also do not see anything that says it is a "historical home". Most of those are on the other side of the bridge.
