You should communicate that information to your listing agent immediately. It is their job to market your home and take and distribute the best pictures of your property possible. Photography is not everyone's forte, and you may want to discuss hiring in a professional photographer if this is a service you would prefer. Either way you should give your feedback to your agent as far as what you are unsatisfied with regarding the current photos so they can be improved upon as soon as possible. You should feel comfortable discussing these things with your agent, as open communication is essential for your satisfaction in selling your home. Also, time is money and getting your property properly marketed to help it sell faster should be everyone's mutual goal. I know I spend hours and hours taking plenty of pictures and then selecting the best shots that allow the viewer to picture daily life in the home. ... more

Good evening, Only 1 home, with a list price of $1M or more, closed in the period 2013-01-01 to 2013-04-09 in zip codes 27608 and 27609. That was 1613 Oberlin Road.
4 homes are currently pending (meaning they have a signed contract) in that price range, using the above criteria.
If you are interested in listing your home, or finding a new home in that price range, give me a call. I'd be happy to help you.

Linda Cromartie answered:
It depends on a lot of things. From a practical point of view, how would the floor plan be impacted? Is there already a full bath on the ground level or would you have to also add that? Is there adequate family living area? Then you should look at the cost of the addition compared to your return on the investment and affect on resale value? Good luck with your decision! ... more

Your agent must "claim it" on Trulia. They hopefully have already established themselves on Trulia and know how to log on and take control of the listing.

Guy Gimenez answered:
Generally speaking, if more than one person is on title (deed), all parties must be in agreement in order to consummate a sale unless a court order states otherwise. Assuming the divorce has been finalized, a review of the divorce decree should be considered, along with a consultation with an attorney. ... more

You can't list a for sale by owner on Trulia - it must be listed by a real estate agent.

RE/MAX TRIFECTA Sale Team answered:
Like any contingency it makes the offer weaker. If i am the listing agent working with the seller and an offer with a contingency for selling a previous home comes in, I will prepare a comparative market analysis for the buyers home which needs to be sold. I will assist my seller in determining whether the buyer has priced their property appropriately and the likelihood it will sell. ... more

Tim Moore answered:
I have never had a seller do this in 24 years. I know we offer it as an option on the listing agreements but I have never seen anyone do it yet. I would think a buyer would still have an inspection of their own and all the nickle and dime stuff will come out at the second renegotiation after the inspection. ... more

Bo Bromhal answered:
can you clarify your question a little? Do you mean sold between 700K and 799K? Asked in that range? All of Raleigh? North Raleigh? etc.

Sheri Moritz answered:
It can only be marketed as a 3 bedroom as long as the septic permit is for only 3 bedrooms. If at sometime that was upgraded or connected to community or city sewer it could then be marketed as a 4 bedroom. Do you have a home to sell? If so I would be happy to discuss the marketing your home in this situation. ... more

Hello -

Best answer: depends on age/condition of your home, what your direct competition is like and market conditions & having a seasoned professional Realtor come out, look over your home and give you advice!

Brandon Williamson answered:
Make sure your listing states it is a "pre-approved short sale". Buyers do not want to get involved with a short sale because it takes FOREVER to hear back. I might even add the pre-approval letter from the bank to your listing as a doc so other agents can see it that are looking. Good luck! ... more

You could visit the brokerages and sponsor a meeting which will give you a few minutes in front of the group to introduce your business and pass out your contact information. The most important thing you can do is a thorough job when you do get an opportunity and charge a fair price. ... more

Sally Grenier answered:
Unfortunately, no. Listings on here are fed by the different MLS systems.

But why would you want to try and sell your home by yourself? I could give myself a root canal, but is that really the smartest thing to do? No. I'd go see an experienced dentist. Your home is likely your most valuable asset. Why would you not have a professional handling the sale of it? ... more
