I am having trouble viewing a listing that I have posted. I am new to Trulia, so I am not sure if it was actually posted. Debbie Maloy 202 271-0458
For sale by owner homes are not allowed so if you listed it for sale and are not licensed, it will not show. Only licensed agents can post homes for sale.
