Selling a home within 6 months of closing on it

Answer

This all depends on the local market.  It is definitely possible to sell a home shortly after a purchase without losing money, but keep closing costs and real estate agent fees in mind when doing those calculations.  Talk to a local agent to get information on the current value of your home, and see if it makes financial sense to sell.  If not, and you're set on moving, look into offering the home up for a rental - you might be able to cover all of your monthly costs with the rent, again depending on local market and value.

When does zillow have open house in April 2015

Answer

Zillow doesn't hold its own open houses for listings on its website.  For information on open houses for a specific listing, I'd suggest you get in touch with a real estate agent to find that information for you.

house size include basement ,garage, attic ?

Answer

This depends on the legality of the space - if it's legal living space, basements or attics can be included.  Sometimes agents will include unwarranted living space like a basement or attic if it's livable, even if it's not legal square footage according to the city the home is in.  If that's the case, the agent should be disclosing this in some way in the listing.  Garage space isn't typically included.

How do I get comps on homes in an area I am interested in?

Answer

Your best bet is to talk to a real estate agent - they'll be able to pull sale records specific to your area and that match the home you're interested in based on its size, location, quality of finishes, etc.

Selling by Owner, How to offer 3% buyer agent comission?

Answer

I'd suggest writing it somewhere in the comments or description of the listing.  That said, in my experience FSBO listings don't get nearly as much attention as those listed by real estate agents who have access to MLS databases and other professional advertising methods.  Granted, you'll pay more for the sale if you use an agent, but you're likely to sell your home for more than you'd be able to on your own, and the home would likely sell faster.Best of luck on your sale!

Real estate agents have access to owner information through tax records, which are also publicly available.  I'd be happy to pull up the information on this home for you if you'd like - get in touch with me directly and we can discuss it further.

How much will my condo sell for?

Answer

The only way to get a real valuation of you home is to have an agent visit it in person, and work up a market analysis.  I'd be happy to do this if you're interested.  Getting a valuation over the internet is possible if photos, square footage, and other details of the home are provided (number of beds and baths, parking, other amenities, address, etc.) but the most accurate valuations will always be when the agent has seen the home in person first.If you'd like any more information on your specific home, feel free to get in touch and I'd be happy to help!

How do I run a credit check on a prospective tenant?

Answer

There are plenty of ways to run a credit check on a prospective tenant online.  Most will charge some fee, and will require the approval of the tenant.  If you need some specific sources, I'd be happy to provide that information to you!
