I do not recommend selling a house in "as is" condition unless there are major issues. Your home sounds like it is in sound condition and just needs updating. I would suggest that you clean out any clutter and make sure the yard is trimmed back. Then price the home at market value and market it all over the internet with profession pictures and video.
I wish you the best of luck in your selling adventure.... more
Trulia does not support For Sale By Owner listings. All listings on Trulia are generated by the listing Real estate agent; Trulia scans the MLS data base and posts that information to their web site. If you have your home listed through a licensed Realtor then your listing should appear on Trulia within 72 hours after going live in the MLS system... more
Getting the contracts is the easy part. Completing, interpretation and understanding of what you sign and what the buyer will sign, and the obligations of the parties...That's the HARD part!
Let's face it, you're dealing with a lot of money. While I understand you want to "save" and keep more of it in your pocket - you really need to ask yourself if you're up to the challenge. No one can answer that question better than you.
What will definitely cost you is agreeing to a contract you don't understand with terms you can't fulfill. Your cannot un-ring a bell. That's what attorneys do. Often at great expense.
Trulia does not allow FSBO's. A quick google search will bring up some other options though. Good luck, and if you decide you'd like to speak to a professional about helping you sell, you can always contact me directly. Good luck !... more
The system used by Trulia is outlined online on their webpage. Trulia uses their own proprietary figure that they attached to a home. The amount is based on a formula and that amount can vary from home to home. The Trulia value is not the appraised value, fair market value, or amount that your home would sell for if the house was put on the market for sale. Each home can vary slightly based on the features of the home and other factors. If you are planning to list your home for sale, you should use a Realtor that understands how Trulia works and how to most effectively market your home. This would be a good question to discuss with qualified Real Estate Broker.... more

It depends on your budget and on the age of the home. On a smaller budget, painting your walls in neutral colors, de-cluttering/organizing, replacing old rugs/mats and giving the home an inviting curb appeal will go a long way. Updating the front entrance with a new door will give a great first impression and add to the overall curb appeal. If the home is older I would recommend removing the popcorn ceiling. On a larger budget, bathroom and kitchen upgrades are a sure bet and a solid investment. I would recommend replacing old appliances with new, stainless steel appliances. Buyerâ€™s today like energy efficiency so replacing your old single-pane windows with double pane windows, upgrading your old air conditioning unit, adding ceiling fans or making the home â€œgreenerâ€ will make the home more desirable to some buyers. Adding storage and organizing closets and storage area will add more value to buyers and will make your home look more appealing. Doing needed repairs and maintenance is a good idea. Lastly, remember, first impression matters. Giving your home a good cleaning (including carpets) will make it more appealing to buyers and de-cluttering your home will make it appear bigger.
