Does Zillow or any other web site offer what is happening to the values of large tracts of land

Answer
What area are you looking for? You should probably contact a Commercial / Land Realtor for that info, as it typically is not in the MLS.

Agent, Where to look for an Agent near the Property to be sold or Anywhere else?

Answer
An agent doesn't have to live in the same community as the home for sale, anymore than  a teacher or policeman have to live in the community that they serve. As long as they have knowledge of the area, what homes sell for there, and what is going on in the community, there's a good possiblility that they can help you.Don't call an agent just because he lives in the area. He/ she may be only part time or sell a couple of houses a year. Ask your friends for referrals and then intereview 3 agents.  You'll be able to tell who knows the area best.Best of luck.Linda

Please advise me of buyer/s name

Answer
By clicking on the link, I see that the home is still for sale. If you want to know the name of the present owner, all that information is public record at www.wakegov.com.

Moving to the Triangle

Response
I've lived here for 8 years, moved here from California after visiting my sister here for 20 years.  I knew the area pretty well from those visits so it was an easy decision to move here. Have loved it ever since. We have a lot of people  relocating to the area from all over, so you wouldn't be the only "newbie'.  I'm a realtor, so if you'd like more infor, contact me.

I'm renting this house for $1800. a month. I got a notice stating that its going on auction. what?

Answer
Is this an auction by a real estate company or a foreclosure auction?  Either way, I would contact the name given on the letter. If it's a real estate auction company, they may be able to help you, or refer you to someone who can represent you if you'd like to bid on the house.

how can my neighbor's smaller home have a higher value than mine?

Answer
Many things besides size determine value of a home. Is the home the same age? Same size lot? What about amenities? Was that home remodeled?  Did they add a bathroom, a pool, granite countertops, etc?Was the home sold recently so that there is a more recent value? What do the tax records suggest?

I'm interested in this house. Is it on sale or not?

Answer
Does it have a price on it? Is there contact information listed? If so, call the agent. You can always look it up on other websites like Realtor.com. They only list homes that are currently for sale, not under contract.

Signs of a quality listing agent

Response
Ask your friends, neighbors, family etc for names of people they've used with success.  Referrals are the number one source of business for a good Realtor. Then go about "interviewing" them as the above agents have mentioned. Good luck!

What percentage will residential homes appreciate for the next 5 years

Answer
The old saying that the 3 most important words in real estate are location, location, location is certainly true.  All real estate is local, just like the weather.As most of the other commenters have mentioned, the national forcast is for a negative appreciation. But there are still pockets of the market that will remain stable, and maybe go up a little. No one has a crystal ball though.
