The seller has accepted the offer but still waiting for the bank. The property is a townhouse and has been on the market for 150+ days. I am thinking that it would not be a great investment. its a 2bed 1.5 bath 1 car garage and is a 2 story. Now this week there are 2 new listings for 2bed 2bath and 2 car garage single family homes. they are listed at the same price. what advice does everyone have.<br \><br \>11 replies Sun, 25 May 2014 13:30:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Can-I-back-out-of-a-short-sale/542419/ 2014-05-25T13:30:00Z 6 Hondo Seco Road, Arroyo Hondo, NM Has this house been sold? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/6-Hondo-Seco-Road-Arroyo-Hondo-NM-Has-this-house-been-sold/557603/ Is it now on the market or has it been sold?<br \><br \>1 reply Tue, 02 Sep 2014 15:41:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/6-Hondo-Seco-Road-Arroyo-Hondo-NM-Has-this-house-been-sold/557603/ 2014-09-02T15:41:00Z Does Zillow carry properties that are rent or lease to own? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Does-Zillow-carry-properties-that-are-rent-or-lease-to-own/557053/ 3 replies Fri, 29 Aug 2014 02:12:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Does-Zillow-carry-properties-that-are-rent-or-lease-to-own/557053/ 2014-08-29T02:12:00Z Zillow sucks!! listings are not up to date. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Zillow-sucks-listings-are-not-up-to-date/481803/ Based on my search results, over half are not up to date. &nbsp;Either the information is wrong, price is wrong, or its already sold but still shows available on Zillow. &nbsp;Not sure how are they filtering or updating their listings (or maybe they don't at all), but its not working. &nbsp;I hate to say this, but I'm using Redfin from now on. &nbsp;Zillow is misleading and useless. &nbsp;What a big waste of time.<br \><br \>17 replies Thu, 07 Mar 2013 23:06:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Zillow-sucks-listings-are-not-up-to-date/481803/ 2013-03-07T23:06:00Z False advertising http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/False-advertising/555107/ My wife and I recently took time to drive into the mountains to view a piece of land that was advertised.
