Hire a great local agent! Trulia is a site for agents only. Using an agent will actually make you more money, save you time and keep you safer and legal. Like many things, it looks easier than it is. A great agent is worth more than their commission, but a bad one or none at all can cost you in ways way beyond just a commission. Best of luck however you proceed. ... more

It depends on how the site gets the information. Broker sites tend to be very quick. Third party sites like can also be fast. Sites like Trulia and Zillow don't typically get their information from the NWMLS, so they can take a couple of days, ASSUMING the agent remembers to change the price via whatever method they had those sites pick up the listing in the first place. Often they forget. ... more

Most likely too new. Ask a lender how they are valued, as a stick built or like another atypical construction. That normally means they have to be valued by us, appraisers with like units, and few of them, means a lower than typical value. Maybe use some of the elements of this type in a typical stick build and that will not put it in the atypical place that makes them hard to value.

Hope that helps, atypical, is log home,dome homes, and Manufactured Home (you called mobile), and several others too long to note here.

Best to you.

A bonus offered to the agent that brings in an accepted offer should help....usually $$ gets the best results...but put a time frame on it... X amount to the agent that bring in an accepted offer by (date) to close by (date)

I have also had good results with organizing all of the listing in the immediate area to hold open houses at the same date and time (just be sure your listing shows the best!)

Good Luck

This is tricky. Nearly all the homes in this neighborhood are custom built, so 'no upgrades' is not an option. A broad price per square foot is currently around $140. This encompasses all styles of homes and, as I said, is VERY broad. Do you need specific comparisons? Hope this helps! ... more

I think SEO is important, ads maybe depends what your budget is. SEO will get your ranking up on the internet. I don't pay for any of it since I come from IT & marketing my whole life so I know how to do it. A personal training program from a tech savvy friend would probably be a better investment than spending thousands to get noticed. Just my opinion is all, it worked for me ... more

It's unclear if your charge offs still appear on your credit--and if so, you may wish to work on their removal first--without many overall financial details--if you haven't done so yet, visit with any qualified loan officer(s), after, reviewing your overall finances/credit, he/she can determine if you qualify, how much, etc.,--your loan officer, may also suggest great ways to improve your credit in the fastest time, if needed. ... more

Not to offend, but I'm curiuos. Why would you want to do that? The more exposure you have, the better your chances are of selling it.
