How do I find the rental market value for a condo that I own in Simi Valley California?

Answer

Hello, Zillow has a rent tool which someone already commented about, but the best way is ask a property management company. Another great reference to compare rentals in Simi Valley is this website The Kitty Letter: http://www.thekittyletter.com/  You can also pick up a hard copy from pretty much all real estate offices in Simi Valley. The Kitty Letter is the local letter for rentals and most property managers, realtors, and owners place their ads in there. It not that expensive, but if you hire a property manager they will advertise for you. A realtor can also help you out. I am a real estate agent,  but I do not not handle rentals. I refer my clients to a property manager because that is their main focus. If you want some names, send me an email at[contact info  deleted by Zillow moderator.

How long is the average time to sell a house?

Answer

Hello Jesse,I am not from your area, but the 1st step would be to look at the average time on the market in your area. The 2nd step would compare your list price to homes that are pending escrow or have sold. Depending on how you compare to average days on market & price you can determine where you stand. If you are over average days in your location, then your list price is too high. I saw you are doing a For Sale by Owner. How are advertising? Zillow only? Are you doing open houses, facebook ads,newspaper, etc. Did you get any feedback from those people that viewed the home? They might say some things you don't agree with, but don't take it personal. Your goal is to sell the home. Example of this they felt the home was clutter, you might think so, but maybe it is. Look at it from a outside party or have one of your friends give you their honest feedback. Have you dropped off flyers to local real estate offices to gain some exposure. Be prepared to offer a commission to the agent that brings the buyer. You know you become "Red Meat" to us agents as a For Sale By Owner.LOL  I bet you have already spoken to many realtors. Do you know a local realtor in your area that you click with? If so have them do a comparable market analysis on your Mom's home to see where you stand in the open market. Maybe can you negotiate something with them to help you out.

what does " make me move" mean exactly

Answer

Its almost like a For Sale by Owner. Sellers will place a price on their home that they will accept to sell it. Some of them are above market value, but you never know. With low inventory, my buyer and I ended up contacting one of these sellers. A couple days later we opened up escrow and just closed escrow this past week. We actually agreed to a purchase price that was less than the Seller wanted. With these type of sellers (or any really) it's all about negotiating a win-win situation. If you've seen all the inventory in your market and one of these properties "make you move" interests you, give it a try. I would recommend always having a real estate agent to represent both parties so all of you can feel confident that all the proper legal steps are taking. Good Luck.
