If you zoom out on the map you will see incidents pop up that appear to be in the past year only. By the way, fyi this house is already under contract.

The only thing you can do is go to the very bottom of the page and contact Trulia's help section. Then the contact button and let them know.
It is fustrating to see these spam ads, but a huge tip off is them asking for you to wire money. Red flags should be going off in your head.
Also you can compare the ads against a reputable company website such as for example. There are many. Hope this helps......

If you are all set with the mortgage, then the next step is to put together a list of must haves in your house and start looking. Start with the internet to get an idea of styles of homes and what you can get for your money. Then when you have an idea of whatyou are looking for, it is time to hire a Realtor to help you.
This professional will help you not only find the perfect house but also help you navigate your way through the process of inspections, mortgage commitment and then finally the closing.

If you need help or would like more information, I would be happy to help you. Amanda

Our advice to Buyers is to speak with a reputable mortgage lender to get pre-qualified. Perhaps you can go to the bank or credit union where you have your checking/savings accounts and ask to speak to one of their mortgage pros - Good luck! It is a great time to buy - ... more

Interest rates are at all time values at all time lows....and you can afford to buy...

A couple of thoughts, you might purchase a less expensive home...there are a lot of nice ones out there below $400,000....The alternative is rent, which provides no positives for you. You might try playing with a rent vs buy calculator ( to help with your decision.

For me personally, I prefer to own my own home...aside from the be tax benefits, I like building equity in a property that's mine, and I can do with what I please.

Hope this helps! Good luck with your search...don't let PMI be the deciting factor

Anne Miller answered:
Dual agency is when an agent is working for the buyer and also the seller.

When our office lists a property for sale, the seller signs an agreement
to say you may put my house on the market and I realize that if
you bring in a customer that likes my home you will be working
for me and the buyer as a dual agent.

If you are our buyer in this situation you would also have to
sign a dual agency agreement to agree that you know that
I will be working for you and the seller to put this transaction
(buying of the home) together.

Hope that is clear for you...any other questions, call me 860-643-9505
at home now or office later 860-647-8000.

There are other factors besides credit that determine mortgage qualification, therefore visit with any licensed loan officer; after reviewing your overall financials, a determination can be made. Be aware that a mortgage pre-approval letter is required in order to determine your price range and for any offers to be taken seriously. ... more

Amy Bergquist answered:
Hello Jasmin,

Here's some current market data to help address your first question about where it is easier to sell. These figures are as of September 30, 2010 and cover all single-family homes in the town:

Median Days on Market: 83
Monthly of Inventory: 7.6

Median Days on Market: 27
Monthly of Inventory: 5.1

West Hartford
Median Days on Market: 46
Months of Inventory: 4.6

At this moment, sellers are in a better position in Newington and West Hartford than Berlin. You note that you are considering a purchase. Since this data is for right now, it's possible that things could change by the time you are ready to sell.

You're definitely doing the right thing by trying to gather as much information as you can. Good luck with your search!

Best regards,

Yes. A seller is not obligated to accept an offer and the buyer's type of financing is just one factor to be considered when ecaluating an offer.
