Sometimes it takes a bit to update from the other resources Trulia gets info for.

The best bet is having an agent look it up on the MLS for the most up to date information on pricing and the status of a home.

Let me know if you have questions.

Hi angpin,

The popularity of a house on Trulia is determined by the amount of traffic the listing receives. The more people view the home the more popular it becomes. If you have any other questions or I can help you with any of your real estate needs, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Hi Jana
You will need a certificate of continued occupancy and also a smoke alarm compliance certificate before you close on your sale. You can get the forms at the building dept at the Monroe Twp Municipal Building .You will have to fill out the forms and pay the fees before they will schedule the inspections for you. Usually you do this once your home is under contract and you know when your closing will be. If you have any questions or need help feel free to call me.

It all depends, is Atco a CO town or a smoke/carbon monoxide certification town? If there is a mortgage involved, an appraiser is going to come and see the condition of the property. I would advise you speak to an attorney to be specific for your situation. ... more

I don't give legal or tax advice, but I do give my opinions.

It does not matter where you live or where a property is, if you sell it for a gain there will be cap gains to be paid unless you can reduce them or eliminate them. It would be on the federal tax form for sure since you never lived in it 2 of the last 5 years. Talk to your tax man/woman. ... more

Check with your accountant that does your taxes or if you are like me and use tax software plug the info in as if you did last year and see what happens to your state tax.

Some of the legal proceedings on foreclosure cases are public. You can research the status of a case to find out if a complaint if filed, if a judgement is issued, or if a sale date is scheduled. You will not have access to mediation meetings, documents pertaining to loan modifications,, etc. As a tenant, you will be able to find out if there is a judgement and/or a sale date.

Here's an overview of the foreclosure process

Here is a link for renters who may hold leases on properties which are being foreclosed.

This depends upon the terms of your contract. Your attorney will be able to best address this as he/she will be able to respond based upon the specific terms for your contract.

If I were your Realtor, I would be concerned!
But I also would have done an OPEN HOUSE and a BROKER's OPEN HOUSE: Have they?
But the ONUS is probably on you; you were the one who determined the LISTING PRICE, and it obviously is not attracting Buyers. ... more

Unless you are listed with an agent, you cannot post the home on trulia.
If you are trying to sell "by owner", you will have to find other sources to advertise

You might try

Short sale or not, you are still the homeowner, and you are still responsible for the home....
This is not a foreclosure where the Bank has taken the property away from the owner, a short sale
will first have to be accepted as such by the bank, and then even though the bank may accept it for
a short sale, this just means that the bank may accept less money as the sale price than what you
currently owe on your loan to the bank, but YOU the homeowner still have to sell the home....

Just think you find a buyer who wants to buy your home at or near the banks short sale price and walks
into the home and realizes the well pump is not working they will make sure how much money that will
cost them and then may be want to offer less on the home, i.e. trying to have an inspection before
writing an offer, and then the bank may not accept that lower price. But is there anything else wrong
with the home that needs repairs?

Are you listing your home for short sale with a Realtor who specializes in short sales? May be you should that Realtor then familiar with the home, the market around, will be able to make better
recommendations to you. If you need recommendations in your area let me know.
Good Luck to you

Without seeing the house it is impossible to tell you.
Staging always helps.
Then marketing to the right buyers.

But sometimes it just comes down to price. if similar homes are selling for less why would they buy yours?

see my FSBO Blog for more info.
feel free to contact me for an free in home consultation.

Attorney review can be conclude in a day - it is the exchang between the attorneys and as long as that continues, attorney review continues. You are in a bit of a tough spot because the business week has ended and you might have trouble connecting with the attorneys over the weekend. if you are close, perhaps you can ask the listing agent/seller to entertain back up offers only to get you through the weekend.

Good luck to you!
