You may or may not know that Realtors pay for MLS memberships, placing pictures on websites and a variety of other services to facilitate transactions in the Real Estate Market. Finding a qualified Realtor to help you sell your home is very important. There are many laws and regulations that must be observed in these transactions and you are ill-advised to represent yourself. Sort of like representing yourself in court -- something about being 'foolish', I believe.

I agree with the comments you received so far. You have to have your home on an Multiple listing service or other sites that Trulia feeds from.

There are many services a real estate agents offers that you could benefit from. It might be worth your while talking to an agent so you can better weigh the pros and cons of your decision to go the For sale by owner route.

Trulia pulls its listings from real estate sites that are operated by real estate agents. They don't allow FSBO's to post their properties. You might try forsalebyowner.com.

Hope this helps.

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.

Sorry to say, as a for sale by owner you CAN NOT add your listing to the trulia site. Only Realtors who have listed a property for sale, and placed it on the Multiple Listing service are allowed to list properties on Trulia. You will have to make use of the various for sale by owner sites, or list your home
with a local Brokerage a Realtor and then the Realtor will be able to place your property on Trulia.

Good Luck to you in Tennessee
