I have had a home listed in a hot market without a sale. 6 mos of that was with an agent. He initially listed the house for more than $40,000 above its real market value and adjusted it slowly down over a period of 4 months. He justified that by saying that HIS "comp" formula was more accurate than any of the other brokers in the area. It wasn't.

In all that 6 mos, I had 8 showings but I have my doubts if they were real because 6 of the 8 happened within 48 hrs of me calling the agent to inquire why no one was asking to see the house. The day the contract expired, I listed the house in a local paper and the same day, I had 8 requests for a showing.

If he had sold it, he would have gotten a commission of $19,500. By my estimate, he put in perhaps 20 hrs of labor and services over that entire 6 months period - maybe even less since he personally showed it only twice. Even doubling that number to 40 hrs by the time of closing, works out to be about $487/hr as a labor rate.

I know he is a professional and there are fees and licenses to be paid but $487/hr is way higher than any other comparably trained and licensed profession - think doctors, lawyers or pilots. That is just not right and I think it is a profession that takes advantage of the psychology of fear, desperation and ignorance of sellers. For this reason, I will do almost anything to avoid using a seller's or a buyer's agent

I am a huge fan of FSBO, and before i was licensed in 2008 I actually leveraged these services (, to sell a couple of homes on my own...successfully. Just know what you're signing up for.

Know that you have no legal protection (unless it's part of the service), your marketing is "limited service" (presentation...quality pictures are key!), FSBO sellers are likely to overprice (#1 listing mistake) and the ultimate responsibility for contingency management is on you once you're ratified. Then there's the process of showing to prospective buyers. You're letting complete strangers into your home, which you may compensate for by following them around from room to room...but would you want that as a buyer?

Upside - I loved the process of home preparation, marketing, driving offers, negotiation and "Contract to Close" process so much...I decided to make it my full time gig going on 9 years!

Zillow allows editing control to change photos. Use either the "Public" or "Owner" view to change pictures or go to "More" at the top of the page.

Yes it can but you have no control over that. The appraisal is for the lender to verify how much of a loan you will receive. Your lender will only finance your new home for either the appraised price OR the contract price - whichever is lower.

Therefore, if the appraised price is lower than the contract price, you need to come up with the difference from your savings. If you don't have the cash to pay the difference, you can try renegotiating with the seller, but the seller can refuse and you may end up losing the house OR you can pay for a 2nd appraisal. Hopefully, your seller will accept a lower amount.

I'm a former realtor and unfortunately there is a misunderstanding of how Trulia works. Trulia is just a media website that hosts listings posted by owners, realtors and property managers. Trulia and Zillow are not real estate brokerages and have no control over the listings that appear on their website. They allow sellers, realtors, etc. to edit their own listings.

To get an estimate for your home, you will need to have a realtor provide one for you. Websites like Trulia, Zillow, etc. rely heavily on public information provided by your county to determine estimates for homes within every county in the U.S. Therefore, you need to understand that public information includes things like: number of bedrooms, bathrooms, lot size, square footage, single or multi family home, property taxes paid, last sold price, age of home, etc.

Public information does NOT include: condition of your home, layout, any upgrades / renovations (unless a permit was issued and recorded with your county); any neighborhood information, school district information, style of home, etc.

Because websites like Zillow and Trulia do not have the above information from your county, it is stated in writing that this information CANNOT be included in estimates for homes on their website. This means that their estimates can be anywhere from 10 - 50% off and therefore worthless/ Realtors, lenders, appraisers and home inspectors NEVER rely on estimates given on websites. Professionals have access to the MLS system and rely on MLS data instead. Realtors do spend time with buyers and sellers explaining the limitations of online estimates and why they are worthless.

The rare time online estimates come close is in condo buildings where the square footage is the same from 1 floor to the next and the lot size is the same.
