Not at this time. In order to get on Trulia and most of the major search engines for homes, your home must be listed into the MLS.

No, not at this time. You should really consider interviewing some agents on your area, an agent can get your house in front of every broker in your area through mls. You can get more exposure and all studies point to the fact you get a hugher price when selling through a realtor which offsets the commission you will pay for a quicker sale at the best obtainable price.

The best advice I can give you is to interview three Realtors. Ask them for their proposal to sell your home, then you run the numbers. If you can sell on your own, great. But if not, you have a plan B you can fall back on right away.

The reason I recommend this is that 85% of owners selling without professional representation list with a Realtor. 5% sell to someone they know, and 5% sell to someone they don't know. On average a buyer FIRST sees the home they buy with a Realtor 90% of the time (NAR Statistics).

So you would not be surprised to see that homes sold by Realtors sell, on average, for 16% MORE than those sold by owners without professional representation...because you are only dealing with 10% of the market.

Good luck

Trulia® does not accept "For Sales By Owner" listings. You can have your property appear here by listing with a MLS only brokerage and they can submit the listing on your behalf. The firms that oofer MLS Only are plentiful. The program is known as The Hybrid MLS System.
