Hi Chrissy. When listing your home as a For Sale by Owner many unexpected situations like this one can occur. This is one of the easier things you'll have to handle as a FSBO as long as you don't get frustrated by the number of places you need to correct. You need to correct this first on Trulia and any/all sites where your listing has been uploaded or posted. Unfortunately, you may not even know all the sites where it is posted because many smaller sites pull their data from the bigger, high traffic sites. Start with Trulia and contact me directly if you would like specific help as things arise.

I am sure that your realtor has advised you on the price drop and you have agreed. Your motivation and your homes showabilty depend greatly on how fast you'd like to sell. Good luck with your sale.... more
This is a question that gets asked a lot. I have a very detailed article about it on my blog (referrence link, below).
There are certain things that you can do in marketing your home to position yourself for success, including strategies with pricing and offering creative solutions for buyers, as has already been suggested. Every real estate agent in the area will be eager to try their hand at marketing the property for you. I know you also asked a question about buying a home in Drexel Hill. In this market, you really need to concentrate on getting your home sold before making an offer to purchase another, (unless of course you are able to buy in cash). Most sellers dont want to see home sale contingencies in the offers they negotiate, and relatively few buyers have the income to qualify for financing on more than one property.
Good Luck in your process. As always, let me know if there is anything else I can answer for you.... more
