Marquez here is a link for an energy calculator. The main parameters are set for Cincinnati Ohio but you can play with it and see where if you make changes you could save money.
First, you need to claim your property on Trulia by bringing up the address. A tab will appear to claim it and it will ask for verification that you are the owner. You then can go into the detailed listing information and click on the edit photos tab to enable you to delete the photos.
I hope this is helpful.

I think your best move would be to speak with a Mortgage Broker to go through the process of determining how much you could afford if you converted your townhome into a rental and purchased a new primary residence.
Selling and coming to the table with the extra $250K is probably not a wise choice. A Short Sale is also probably not an option due to leaving your credit severely damaged to the point buying will not be an option for at least two years.

You have a power easement. This is dedicated in your lot plan. You will need to contact the power company and or phone company, but I doubt that either will be willing to do anything, because, where will they put it?... more
Well, it's spelled out in your contract. I assume that you have not read your contract and it is hard for me to answer your question without looking at it. If you like, you can give me a call at 408-426-1441 or email me (email@example.com) so I can look over your contract one more time.
Do you have a contract with her for the sub-lease? What agreement do you have with her? She just moved in and may not want to relocate again. If that is correct, then she may not want to cooperate with your plans. And good luck explaining to her your reasons. I would suggest you contact an eviction service and pay them for their expertise.... more
Hi - I think looking through craigslist and contacting property management companies or even just looking on their websites for current rentals are both really good starts - the rental market can change in six months but again should give you a good idea of what rents are in the area. There isn't one centralized place to look for this information but craigslist tends to have the most information in one place.
You asked how an appraiser would estimate market rents - typically they will contact both owner/landlords and property management companies and will do a "rental survey" to get a sense of what a particular property type will rent for in a neighborhood. They place most of their weight on recently rented properties because until something is actually rented - just a rental listing is of limited value.
It is better to think of the potential rent as a range and not as a fixed number - some of the things that create variability in the rent is if the landlord pays for some or all utilities, if the tenant is expected to yard maintenance or if the landlord contracts that out. Rent for the same type of house might vary by over $100 a month if the tenant is paying all utilities and responsible for taking care of the yard over one where that is included in the rent.
I think West Sacramento can be a very good investment neighborhood especially since much of the city is in close proximity to Downtown Sacramento.... more
It appears the reviews of VAPA you see on Trulia(http://www.trulia.com/schools/CA-Vista/Vista_Academy_Of_The_Arts/) are actually pulled from www.greatschools.net. So if you visit GreatSchools, you can leave a review there.... more
A REO (Real Estate Owned) is a home that is currently owned by the bank, a PPR is a Property and Portfolio Research and is a valuation report that is done on commercial properties or portfolios of properties, much like a BPO (Broker Price Opinion) is done on a residential property. A PPR could be completed if the sale is for a block of homes in that case the investors buying and selling would use a PPR that would indicate value of the entire portfolio vs a BPO that is only a valuation of one property.
So to directly answer your question comparing an REO to PPR is kind of like comparing apples to oranges, they really are two completely different items.... more
