Home Selling in Saline>Question Details

Joan Witte, Home Seller in Saline, MI

How do I go about having my home listed in the trulia site when someone searches homes for sale in Saline, MI?

Asked by Joan Witte, Saline, MI Sun Oct 28, 2012

We have our home in Saline for sale by owner, with conventional financing and land contract option. We would like to have the home show up in the listing when an individual inquires for "homes for sale in Saline, MI."

i would be more than happy to list your property on the mls, at which point it will be listed on roughly 80 other sites throughout the country. Trulia, Realtor .com, Google just to name a few.

Thank you for your offer, but we are not ready at this point to list it on MLS.

I would suggest listing with a Realtor and they will enter your property into the MLS which will then feed to Trulia as well as many other sites.

Thank you for you reply. We may consider listing on MLS with a listing agent through FSBO at a later time. We are offering a land contract option which may be attractive to buyers in this mortgage market.

Yes, your home would have to be listed by a Realtor to get onto Trulia. It is obvious that you are trying to save money by not paying the commission but negitiating that could be in your best interest also.

Good luck

If you are a for sale by owner the post is not allowed, you can however try blogging about the property; if and when you do list with an agent, he/she can post it for you, ask; or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into the site.

Thank you for your reply, Anna. We have recently put our home up for sale, and know that we can list on MLS through FSBO and agree to pay 2-3% commission to a selling agent....which may be something we consider later. We are also open to a land contract option, which we feel is an attractive feature in today's mortgage market.

You can't.

Trulia uses feeds from the different multiple listing services. If you're not on an MLS that feeds into Trulia, you can't get listed.

Some agents will put your listing on the MLS for a nominal amount--often in the range of $200 to $300. And, incidentally, you should do that whether or not Trulia's important to you. There are plenty of people in your area who are using the MLS through other agents' sites, through Realtor.com, and so on. NONE OF THEM are running into your listing.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for your quick response.....we do know that we can authorize and pay FSBO to have our home listed on MLS...and then we would be agreeing to pay a 2-3% commission to a selling agent....and since we recently listed our home we are not considering doing that at this point.
