There is no cost to list a property for sale or for rent on Trulia.
As a landlord, you can post your property for rent on our site via the link below, and if you do so you will be prompted to provide photos for the property. However we do not accept FSBO listings at this time. If you are working with a broker or agent to sell your home, he/she can submit your property information to us for both sale and rent.
Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
If you are interested on advertising your home yourself and selling / renting then you will need to do that on another web site such as craigslist. If you want your sale / rental listing on Trulia you will need to hire an agent to market your home. When you hire an agent they take care of all of your marketing so you don't need to take pictures and the cost can be different depending on who you hire. Feel free to contact me anytime for additional free information and details.
All the best,

Trulia, and many other sites for advertising properties for rent and for sale are for use of licensed real estate agents. Probably why 83% of purchases where made through a realtor in 2010, according to NAR stats.
Couple questions. Why are you open to either sale or rent? have you been a landlord before? If you are selling, i would strongly recommend using a realtor, here are some facts about FSBO's. (For Sale By Owners)
â†’ Only 9% of sales in 2010 were FSBOâ€™s, almost 50% of FSBOâ€™s knew the buyer personally.
â†’ The Median Selling Price of FSBOâ€™s is 29% lower than agent Assisted Sales. Simply put if FSBOâ€™s used an agent they would NET 23% MORE MONEY..
â†’ A higher percent of FSBOâ€™s need to sell their homes very urgently. IE, financial pressures create leverage to buyers, which in turn results in a lower sales price.
