Kind regards,

Arpad

Hello - Can you please send us a term sheet summarizing the costs of using Trulia to list our single family house in the Evergreen area of San Jose?
Tru posts a listing but does not sell it. Costs associate with selling lies with title/realtor.
It is just a 3rd party real estate site
