Alabama is a buyer-beware state, so you don't have to disclose anything in regards to problems.......unless it is health, safety, or structurally related. So, discovered black mold in the basement? YES. Leaky water heater? NO. That's technically the buyer and home inspector's job to find. ... more

There are definitely some areas that sell better than others. What is your general price range of homes? That would make it pretty easy to send you a list of what you're looking for. New construction is especially hot right now and accounts for approximately 30-35% of the current market. ... more

Hi Joneshouse,

A quick check of the MLS seems to suggest that a lot of the houses were built by Brian Homes Inc, and a few more were built by Woodland Homes.

Trulia is an optional service that Realtors may or may not choose to place their listings in. It's not connected directly to the MLS database like some services are. If it's something you want, you should be able to ask your Realtor to do this. There's no fee involved for a standard listing, so I wouldn't imagine it to be a huge deal.

Hope that helps!

Have your buyers agent review the contract terms and conditions with you. In many instances if you are a day late in any payment purchase converts to straight lease. I would be careful about providing a huge down payment you dont know how credit worthy the seller/ property owner is and their future can change. In some instances huge downpayments seller has taken then home is in foreclosure you have lost everything. I recommend to lease option to purchase within a certain amount of time 1st right of refusal. In the meantime if you are doing a lease purchase I would focus on credit repair where you are in control of the property. Frankly you would be in business with property owner which can cause future issues, depends on the seller personality and etc. GOOD LUCK

Pretty simple, really. I'm not sure about the "exact" way from a buyer's login, but it's something like this.

Start at the home page. Login to your account. In the top, right hand corner, click on My Trulia. Then, click on "My Listings." From there, you should have the option to submit a listing. After that, it's pretty much just "Fill in the blank."

Good luck on that house! Out of state buyers are really getting active in the Madison and Huntsville areas right now.
