This is something Realtors often do, especially for legal cases, estates, divorces, etc.

Check with a Realtor in your area.

Hi Abigail,

Is the issue that your father lost his copy of the title? There should be a copy of the title recorded at the town clerk's office from when he purchased the house. Contact the town and they can provide you with a copy.

Alexander Monticello, Esq. answered:
It depends on the house, price, and marketing plan. On average Albany homes are selling after about 120 days. But again this varies based on many unique factors.

With eighty-eight percent of home buyers and investors now searching online for their homes, it's not enough to rely on the old tricks of the trade. In order to maximize the full listing potential, I reach every corner of the market.

In order to reach the younger and out-of-town demographic, you will need to market online. Whether it's,, Times Union online, or the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), I offer all of my clients a featured listing on these premier online websites, among other websites. 

I not only ensure that your home will be omnipresence online, but I utilize value added marketing tools to ensure a successful sale. I provide my sellers with a customized website, such as I hire a professional photographer to make sure we're getting the best side of your home. And I provide a custom designed brochure by a local graphic design artist, to capture its unique character.

If you have any questions, don't hestitate to call.

when the price is too high

Simple answer to your simple question. Maybe a bit more detailed question would get better answers

I would advice you talk to your realtor on this. My truIia answer would be the following...

I think if they are not considered a fixture and if you did not included them in the sale of the home in the Sellers Disclosure form then yes take your speakers. Unless there is a signed bill of sale on these items in the contract they are considered personal property and can be removed before closing. ... more

When was it listed with a realtor?

Also does that realtor have a feed setup to go to trulia or did they manually enter it?

It might just take a little bit as it can take up to 72hrs to appear if Im not mistaken.

What happened to the Buffalo Bills today? I grew up in Williamsville and remain a loyal Bills and Sabres fan but lately they've both been....dissapointing! Tough season and I'm glad it's over.

Now to your question. I think it depends on the house. Personally I'd rather see a house vacant. But nearly every buyer I've worked with has a hard time visualizing the rooms without some sort of "spacial" consideration. Of course if the furniture or colors are hideous nothing will help. I would say get some opinions from some agents in the area or go view some open houses-both vacant and occupied to see what you think. If vacant houses were easier to see we wouldn't have any business (or need) for the staging companies. But they do seem to be thriving!

Good Luck, Jim Mellen

Hi. Saw your comment. Trulia and most real estate sites like them, pull their info from your MLS and tax records. So you would want to correct it there. I went into the property (nice place!) and then clicked through to your broker website. I see you have it listed as 3 bath, 1 half bath. Strange....

Zillow allows owners to claim their home and change wrong information.

For your listing, if it doesn't update, I would suggest mentioning it in the comments.

Good luck selling!

We would need more information besides the age and the sq footage, location, condition, school district & layout play a significant role in setting the value on any home or property. After we have gathered the required information the next step would be to do a CMA (current market analysis) of the location of your home. I hope this helps.

If you want a guesstimate go to Zillow. If you want a professional opinion of value in today's market. Call a local Realtor who specializes in your market.
Good Luck
