We were also told that we could list through Postlets, but that doesn't work either. What is the straight deal with Trulia?
But be aware you get what you pay for. NOTHING!!
Are you sure you are ready to do a FSBO with all the (legal) papework involved? Are you ready to spend nights and/or weekends home showing your house to "prospective buyers" (read strangers) and do you know how to make sure they are pre-qualified and serious before just letting them into your home? Are you ready to hold your own open houses (if you chose to) and let even MORE strangers just wander through your home? Are you willing to spend the $$ it takes to print brochures/ advertise in the newspaper or on other online websites? Do you know how to negotiate a contract, deal with inspection issues, how to hold buyers to their contract contingencies (like downpayments, mortgage due dates etc)?
You are really better off hiring a full service local Realtor who can control who gets into your home, pays to market your home, helps with price negotiation, contract contingencies, inspection issues etc.
Homes listed in the MLS system are automatically fed into Trulia. This is why you would need to have your
home listed with a Realtor. So once they advertise your home in the mls it will appear on Trulia. Or you can pay a flat fee with a broker that would put it in the mls for you.
If you ever seek the help of a Realtor, feel free to contact me as I am licensed in Ga and NJ and
work in the Newark area.
