No offense to anyone else... Just needed to say that to John!
Hope we cleared this topic up. Off to the next!
I'm very sorry for all the confusion surrounding this issue.
The FAQ that rockinblu referenced below was posted in error and is no longer on our site. Trulia does not currently include FSBO listings within our search results however we are always seeking feedback from all groups who visit our site, including FSBO sellers, and the new FAQ that Dunes quoted is a reflection of that aim. FSBO sellers are an important part of the market and we do want to understand their needs.
Once again, I'm very sorry for all the drama. Thank you for your patience and please be sure to let me know if any of you have further questions about this.
rockinblu, I'm very sorry that I haven't yet responded to your email. Two weeks vacation = way too many emails to follow-up on in a timely manner. It's almost enough to make me promise never to go on vacation again. ; )
Does a person in all honesty need to use an agent to get their home on Trulia.
Example...It is my understanding anyone can subscribe to Trulia Pro, you do not have to be a Agent or in the Industry (Is this true).
Could I then place my home on Trulia to sell? (Is this accurate or true?)
Sure there is no FSBO category or FSBO splashed across the ad but would I be able to place the property on Trulia because I subscribe to Trulia Pro?
The question is simple even though the explanations tend to be complicated...
The only way to place a property on Trulia is using an Agent? (True or not)
Can anyone subscribe to Trulia Pro? (True or not)
Can they then place a property to sell on the site? (True or not)
From Emily on a previous post re: FSBO and personal listings on Trulia...
"You've received quite a few differing answers on the subject so I'll set the record straight. Trulia does not include for sale by owner listings within our search results at this time. And as Fred explained, even if you post your home on a site that feeds listings to us, it will not be shown on our site if it is indeed a FSBO listing.
I should also note that, while Trulia does have relationships with many MLSs, by and large listing information is not automatically sent to us from the MLS. Franchises, brokers, and agents can submit listings to Trulia and this is how we obtain most of our listings. That means that if you do sign up for a flat fee service, the flat fee broker can submit your listing to Trulia."
No offense from anyone just doing our job giving answers... wiping off my shoulders
I would suggest before depending on any answer on this topic here, that you go directly to Trulia and ask. They are very happy to assist and very polite. There are 2 different takes on this topic.
I do not and will put anyone's answer down, because we all believe that the info we provide is right. So I do not want to offend anyone in this answer and it is not my intention.
John's answer earlier shows another way to be listed thru flat fee brokers, again they are brokers who are affiliated with Trulia.
Figured Trulia saw it was me and knew there was no justifiable reason for anyone to flag me so they ignored it. lol
I think the fact that Larry felt he needed to have a discussion with Trulia about this topic shows he's aware it's unclear or not presented in a Clear enough way by Trulia.
I'm sure Trulia will discuss this at a meeting. ; ) Just being a pain Emily!
I think she'll stop by eventually....Hope all goes well for you..
