Trulia does not post FSBO properties.

Did you know.... The founder of For Sale By Owner site sold his two-bedroom apartment in Chelsea for $2.15 million—with the help of a real-estate broker and at the standard 6% commission. He spent 6 months trying himself with online ads and classifieds before turning the sale over to professional.

For Sale By Owner (FSBO) Statistics

FSBOs accounted for 9% of home sales in 2012. The typical FSBO home sold for $174,900 compared to $215,000 for agent-assisted home sales.

FSBO methods used to market home:
• Yard sign: 48%
• Listing on Internet: 32% • For-sale-by-owner websites: 20%
• Sites with real estate listings (e.g. Yahoo!, Google, etc.): 11%
• Social networking websites (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, etc.): 10%
• Video hosting websites (e.g. YouTube, etc.): 2%

• Friends, relatives, or neighbors: 30%
• Print newspaper advertisement: 14%
• Open house: 12%
• Direct mail (flyers, postcards, etc.): 2%
• Video: 1%
• For-sale-by-owner magazine: 1%
• Television:

Don't List it here! Use the "For Sale by Owner" site.

You can try Zillow, that site will allow you to list your home for sale by owner.

If you need to be approved for a new mortgage, I would be happy to get you pre-approved for a new loan. I am a Mortgage Specialist in Macomb County, MI.

Hi Engel

Currently Trulia does not allow FSBO.

Currently Trulia does not add FSBO listings on their database.. Trulia is a search engine for residential real estate listings that are indexed from agent/broker web pages. The service is free, and there is no charge to real estate professionals that submit the listings posted on Trulia. Like Anna said, you can always hire a real estate company to include your listing in the MLS database for a small fee.

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.
