Depending on your area. People will generally say on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. I had a seller who had the most traffic in their area on Thursday night between 4-9 pm.

Are you trying to list your property here on Trulia, Joseph? If so, that's unfortunately not a possibility - Trulia only accepts listings from licensed real estate professionals.

Two sites where an owner can list a home for free without an agent are Zillow and craigslist.

Hope that helps!

I don't know of any new law that says an abandoned oil tank needs to be removed from a basement... but do check with your attorney. I know that most buyers will want it removed... simply because they don't want "junk" left in the basement.

Good luck selling your home.

Based on how long you have had the property, you may have encountered at least one agent at the time you bought the property. If your agent or the original listing agent did a good job, try to find them first. If this does not apply, you should interview at least 3 full time agents who have a track record of success, is versed in properties with similar value to yours and that can give your home the attention it deserves. While I work for a large broker and have the skills it would take to represent your property if you were in my area, I am one of the few that could say and prove that.
In your case you may need an agent from a specialty/boutique broker. You could also ask friends and neighbors who they used or call local brokers and discuss your specific situation and ask them to send the agent they think is the best suited for you. You should have a series of questions that you would want an agent to answer or to incorporate in their listing presentation.
One critical question for you to ask should be "how many listings do you have at this time?". One of the biggest mistakes many homeowners make, who have special properties, is to look for a local agent that is #1 in their area as determined by some measure. There is always more than one number 1. One number one agent here has 75-80 listings at any one time. I would suggest that you would not want to be 1 of 75.
I believe you will immediately recognize the agent you want when you speak and meet with him/her. Once you do, develop a plan with that agent which includes your needs for updates and then let the professional do their job. I am confident that you will be impressed with the job your agent will do for you.
Good Luck!!

That's a very difficult question to answer because only one condo has been on the market in the last 6 months in Pittsfield. It was listed for $93.00 a square foot and it did not sell. Check here for more info: ... more
