"Realtors have no stake in FSBO, excepta as a source of prospecting"
Agents seem to complain about unsupported data and blanket negative statements against using agents yet have no problem blowing thru a thread slamming FSBO without supplying the source of all the ever changing % tossed around.
FSBO isn't working now, but the good ol regular agent process of selling is doing just fine?
Follow the lesson plan................http://www.realtor.org/toolkits/fsbo02
Fair is Fair, Dunes
It also tells how the statistics you use as fact are based on a questionaire mailed to 133,000 Homebuyers and Sellers. There were 10,053 "usable" responses making an adjusted response rate of 7.9%. It is from this that you get your facts?
Everyone has a survey.....http://www.inman.com/news/2009/03/10/analysis-commissions-do
Good info from Lynn and Bill. Trulia only accepts listings with agent/broker representation. However, as mentioned by Lynn, an owner may create an ad in the blog section, and even upload photos and post links. The blog attached to the link below may be of some interest to you as well. Good luck.

Realtors have no stake in FSBO, excepta as a source of prospecting because they numerically don't sell as well as property represented by professionals.
Anyway Trulia is not the place to advertise your desire to sell without representation.
Justin and "Dunes" - First, the statistics come from the 2008 NAR Profile of Home Buyers & Sellers. It states that 13% of all home sellers in 2008 sold their home without the help of a realtor and without being on the MLS. However, it also states that over 45% of those FSBO's knew the buyer and their intent to purchase their home BEFORE they even decided to sell the home. That means that only 65% of that original 13% were actually true FSBO's. And if you do the math, that means that over 91% of all homes sold (that required to be marketed anyway) were done so with the help of a realtor and on the MLS.
Next, you should never answer a question about how to market a home and what sites to use to a consumer who is in a market that you know absolutely nothing about. This consumer lives in Kankakee County. It is a small and mostly rural county with a very limited number of people who even know what Craigslist and most of those other sites you posted even are. Their odds would be better helped by placing a classified ad in the Kankakee Daily Journal than they would be using any of those web sites.
There's a reason over 90% of people that need their home to be marketed do so with the help of a Realtor. Because less than 10% have any success with the methods you have described.
THis is my last post on this as I don't think Lisa wants her question to be used as a forum for an arguement. Feel free to contact me directly should you have any further discussions you would like to have on the issue.
I'm sorry, but I must disagree. Those sites do very little if anything for you. There's a reason why Realtor.com and REMAX.com are the biggest and most searched sites on the internet for homes. And yes, just like Trulia, you have to be listed with a Realtor to be on those sites. I've never heard anyone say that they found their home on ForSaleByOwner.com or any of these other sites that are hardly heard of by anyone or searched by anyone.
Over 90% of all homes sold are sold as a reasult of being on the MLS. The only sites people are looking on other than the MLS are the sites that you'll either have to pay a lot of upfront money to be on or the ones you can only be on if you're listed with a Realtor. As hard as the market is right now, this isn't the time to try and sell by owner. Yes, I do say that because I'm a realtor, but I also say it because it just isn't working right now. If I can be of any help to you please let me know.
