How will foreclosures and short sales affect my homes value? It depends on a couple of variables.

1. The number of foreclosures and short sales within the community is a factor. You have to also look at how many other homes have sold that are not bank owned sales or short sales. It is the appraiser professional to the value of the home. Appraiser use the closes 3 homes that best match the subject home they are appraising. If two of the homes are banked owned closed sales and one is a typical sale from an individual owner the appraiser has to use those comps however, they will take into account and note that the comparable homes were banked owned.

2. If there are 3 comparable home sales that are not foreclosures the appraise will use the traditional sales and not the foreclosures. If there are multiple foreclosures in an area over months or even years this can slow the appreciation of home values.

NOTE: Appraisers pull six months of sold data to find a home that compares to the subject home they are appraising. They also stay within a three-mile radius of the home they are appraising. They will use the homes that are the closest to the subject home they are appraising.

The sooner the better, with interest rates slated to go up the buyers are ready to buy anytime. Lower inventory does increase home sales prices in most cases. If you need assistance please feel free to contact our office at 813 345 8559 or visit our website at www.firstinpm.com. ... more

Marianne,

Not sure whether you are planning on making a purchase or planning on selling your home, so I will answer in both ways.

BUYING:

Property owners cannot list their own home on Trulia. There many be a title company or attorney that is set up to facilitate the closing, however, the BUYER will not be afforded many of the protections that they would if they had an experienced Realtor working on their behalf. There are many services that a Realtor® provides, too numerous to list here, but you can review the services at the following link: http://www.homenetyouteam.blogspot.com/p/26-reasons-why.html . For purchases $70,000 and up, HomeNet offers a $500.00 cash rebate at closing http://www.homenetyouteam.blogspot.com/p/500-customer-loyalt… .

SELLING:

I think Trulia is a great resource. I spend a lot of time answering questions on Trulia to assist both buyers in sellers. Obviously, my career is in real estate, and I believe that there are tremendous benefits to a property owner to use a good Realtor® in selling their home. You can list your home on Trulia,but that is just on source. When you list your home with a good Realtor®, you will enjoy convenience, security, and the possibility that you will sell your home more quickly for a better price than you would selling on your own. When a Realtor® lists your home, your listing can go in the MLS where your home will get in front of thousands of Realtor® who are working with many prospective buyers. You can also choose in your listing agreement to have your property listing go onto the Internet at which point the listing will propagate to hundreds of other real estate websites on the Internet including Trulia, Zillow, Realtor.com, Oodle, Yahoo, everywhere. This exposure will greatly increase your chance of obtaining a buyer at a price that is higher than what you may have received otherwise. HomeNet offers a 4% home marketing plan that is FULL SERVICE, not LIMITED SERVICE which you can read more about at the following link: http://www.homenetyouteam.blogspot.com/p/home-marketing-plan.html .

There is a saying that "Only a fool will hire themselves as an attorney". I have been in the real estate industry for 28 years, and in that 28 years I have gained a wealth of experience and I am firm believer that a good Realtor® is the most important choice a home seller and buyer can make.
