My name is Ali and I am a Community Manager here at Trulia. I'd love to clarify some of the misunderstandings, if you are selling your home on your own, please note that Trulia does not include FSBO listings within our search results, you need to have an Agent put it on the site for you. If you have an Agent they can go here and list it on Trulia for you for free:
However you can talk to our sales team at Trulia to learn more about advertising options that you may may be able to take advantage of, please call 888-568-6487 Mon-Fri 9am-7pm EST to learn more.
As always, if you have any additional questions please feel free to reach out! I am happy to be a resource.

An owner can't
No matter how much you insist, Trulia does NOT allow FSBO listings.
Don't take my word for it, or the other agents who answered similarly here...........
Rather than give out incorrect information.............
Here's an idea - ask Trulia to explain it, or clarify it, for you.
Reach out to:
Alison Hillman - the new trulia community moderator..........
you can reach her at:
She is very nice, and I will also be asking her to stop by and clarify this so no one reading this thread will walk away with wrong information
Best of Luck,
Under the Buy and Rent tabs, there is a link to list for sale and for lease listings for free, add photos, etc here on Trulia. Just follow the links.
However, if you want to get your home sold quickly and for about 12% more than what most for sale by owners get (stats from the National Assoc of Realtors), list the home with an experienced Realtor. Over 75% of the time, for sale by owners end up working with a Realtor because the sellers do not understand the steps in getting their home sold.
Marketing is what you are doing here and this is what is most visible in a real estate transaction. However, there is so much more. State required disclosure, recording of loan payoffs, verification of buyer's mortgage, negotiations, dealing with inspections, legal issues and more can make your head spin.
Again, we will likely get you more money than you can on your own...even after paying our commissions (which you are likely trying to save). Give us a call and let us break down the cost and explain how we can get the home sold quicker and with much less hassel than simply posting on Trulia (and we will get the home there too!).

Just to confirm. I put in a "fake new construction" listing short of setting it active on Trulia and it appeared to be taking all the information and was ready to go live Maybe Debra in NJ and their Trulia would not allow it, but here in Houston it looks like your able to list a home yourself. I believe you can put in a FSBO listing here on Trulia, as you can on other sites as mentioned by other Realtors.
However, it will take you a lot of time and effort to get your home on all the websites. Keep in mind 85%-90% of buyers first see homes they wish to view on-line and we Realtors have a system to get your home on hundreds of web sites quickly (typically within 48hrs) with links, sharp photos and more.
Let us know if your able to get the home posted and share the link with us. If not, let us list the home and sell your home fast.

Check out our websites and contact one of us. We can give you a Comparative Market Analyasis and make an appointment to view your property. Both the selling and buyers agents will put prospective buyers in touch with a good lender that will get the buyer pre-approved.
If you are selling an investment property as-is, I have a list of investors, just like most agents do, too.
forsalebyowner, zillow, craigslist are all good places for FISBO's to list their own properties, but watch out for the tire kickers that can waste you time.
Only homes listed by agents (via the MLS) are posted on this site.
As a fsbo, you can list on:
zillow.com, forsalebyowner.com or craigslist.com....plus additional websites......
