How do I get a photo of our home to go with our for-sale-by-owner home? How do I change the note at the top that says "inactive" to active?

To get your home listed on Trulia, you need to have it listed with an agent. You could give yourself a root canal, but do you really want to, just to save the money? No, you'd hire a dentist.

You're dealing with the largest transaction of your life. You need to hire a professional to get your home sold!

Sally said it best. Hire a professional realtor in your area, they will know the best ways to market you home.

I recommend websites For Sale By Owner in your area. A successful one because you can list for free, unless you buy a lot of their stuff, is http://www.owners.com. I know in FL there is http://www.buyowner.com, but they charge around $400 until it sells -or it used to be. The pblm if you are in central U.S. or somewhere else, it is not well known. Research online as much as possible. Craigslist is a lot of junk and nothing serious. Zillow is misleading -Okay to list, but do not believe all you read. It is a lot of work, but can be done. Put on a realtor's hat, don't think like homeowner or you will have sentimental attachments. Good Luck!!

Hello Gperkes,
Sally is correct in that Trulia does not accept for-sale-by-owner listings so no photo can be added nor your property be moved to an "active" status.

If you decide to list with a real estate firm then photos, copy, virtual tours, and open house times can be added.

I suggest that you consider posting your home for sale on Zillow.com and Craigslist.com for free, and Forsalebyowner.com for a nominal fee.

Good luck!
