You can submit your home at http://www.trulia.com/submit_listings/ but be aware that your exposure is very limited when you choose to do this. Submitting your home like this does NOT put it into the MLS system. The majority of buyers are using a real estate agent and they will not see your home listed while they are searching. Good agents also encourage their clients not to use Trulia or Zillow during their house hunting due to the highly inaccurate data, because of this you will most likely not be seen.
If you want to list your home in the MLS you'd either need to hire an agent who can walk you through the process or you can try listing it yourself at a website like http://www.listingexpress.com/ Just be aware that if you do it on your own you will not have anyone representing you during your home sale.
I am a real estate agent licensed with ReeceNichols and I could help answer any other questions you may have about the process if you'd like to email me at KatherineReed@ReeceNichols.com... more
Once your offer has been accepted, you have a limited amount of time to secure financing or the contract can become null and void. Generally that time period is 15 days, you can find this information under the section about Financing in your signed contract. Although, if the seller is giving you the extensions this may not become a problem for you. If, at this point, you have not been given loan commitment, meaning that the bank has said that you do qualify for a loan, I would certainly be asking some questions. If the lender is asking only that certain conditions be met to complete the loan file it may not be such an issue moving the closing date back. I would question your lender as to whether you actually have the loan or not. Keep in mind that until you actually sign the loan documents, you are free to use any lender that you would like, shopping around is still an option. Hope this home buying experience goes smoothly for you.... more
