Make sure your agent has communicated with the neighbors to inform them of any open house dates. Invite the neighbors to a private showing one hour before the public open house.</p><br \><br \>7 replies Mon, 24 Feb 2014 17:42:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Should-a-seller-let-their-neighbor%27s-know-they-are-putting-their-home-up-for-sale/529769/ 2014-02-24T17:42:00Z My rental house listing that i posted through postlet is not showing up on zillow http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/My-rental-house-listing-that-i-posted-through-postlet-is-not-showing-up-on-zillow/560206/ Hi,<br/>I have been trying to post my house for rent through postlets and it never shows up on zillow.

Opinions from Home Owners / http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Buyer%27s-Question-How-serious-should-we-take-Drywood-termites-Opinions-from-Home-Owners/526948/ I am trying to buy a home (as-is) and this home is visually not the best out there and we want to spend our money to fix some cosmetics however we just found out that there are drywood termites. Summary of the report: Dry wood termites is found below a bedroom and garage.(sub area) and inspection company recommends fumigation for full guaranteed eradication of all drywood termite infestations One of my builder / investor friend who buys and fixes homes advised that these (drywood termites) are slow chewers and I would not spend money on fumigation unless there are some structural issue and inspection report did not show up anything that big. I plan to keep this home for 5 more years and would like your advise if you agree or disagree with my friend's statement above so that we can best spend our money on cosmetics than fumigation. PS: There are fungus/dry rot issues and we plan to take care of them separately<br \><br \>7 replies Mon, 03 Feb 2014 05:16:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Buyer%27s-Question-How-serious-should-we-take-Drywood-termites-Opinions-from-Home-Owners/526948/ 2014-02-03T05:16:00Z buyer doesn't cancel contract http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/buyer-doesn%27t-cancel-contract/542851/ If a buyer emails that they're no longer interested in purchasing a property, but doesn't cancel the contract (despite repeated attempts by the seller's agent requesting the signing of the cancellation) and this extends beyond the disclosure window, what recourse does the seller have?<br/><br/>Note that we are unable to proceed on a backup offer because the first buyer won't cancel the contract<br \><br \>3 replies Wed, 28 May 2014 04:41:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/buyer-doesn%27t-cancel-contract/542851/ 2014-05-28T04:41:00Z Should i rent or buy in Mountain View, ca for current market? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Should-i-rent-or-buy-in-Mountain-View-ca-for-current-market/502032/ 8 replies Mon, 15 Jul 2013 19:49:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Should-i-rent-or-buy-in-Mountain-View-ca-for-current-market/502032/ 2013-07-15T19:49:00Z
