Did you import the listing yourself or did you "claim" it? After ou claim it you should be able to mae changes. Also check the MLS because that feeds to Trulia. If that doesnt work contact the help/ customer service people. I hope it works out for you!

The effectiveness of open houses is an often debated topic. I would say you should never rely on an open house to sell your property, but it never hurts. Real estate is a numbers game and the more marketing you do, the better your chances of success. Often times 'nosey neighbors' might have friends or family that are interested in moving into the area and can be a great marketing tool. We always personally deliver flyers announcing open houses to all the neighbors when we hold one, and encourage them to drop by. Theft can be an issue but is easily controlled by putting all valuables and prescription medicine (number one item stolen, sadly) away before time, and having two realtors at your open house, one to greet and one to accompany guests. The odds of selling your home at an open house are slim, but it is another way to get "the word out" about your home. In the market we have, why not have an open house ?

Hi - I just checked the current Market Action Report from RMLS - and it looks like 188 days from listing to close of escrow.

Click on the Web References Link to see the entire report and find out how you compare to the entire Metro area.

Let me know if I can help with anything else.

There are a number of factors that influence the value of properties in Mountain Park; which complex the unit is in, the year built, the features of the unit and development, the condition of the property, square footage, etc.

My office is in Lake Oswego and I live and specialize in the area. If it helps, I can shoot you some information that will answer your questions - no obligation, of course. The 2007 median sale price in Lake Oswego finished up 5.2% over 2006 - compared to 1.9% for the general Portland area.

We've sold a number of properties in Mountain Park - it's a very desirable area.

Best of luck!
