Debby - I'm not sure Trulia will let you post directly BUT you can do it by using a different free service. Go tohttp:// http://www.vFlyer.com orhttp:// http://www.postlets.com. Each site will let you create a free account where you can then design a beautiful web flyer for your home using their templates. They will submit your site to many different web sites that feature homes for sale. Trulia is one of them. You can also use the flyer with Craig's List. Although I am a Realtor I certainly understand the desire to sell your home yourself. It's worth a try. I had clients In Wilsonville, close to Xerox that I helped purchase a home before they sold the Wilsonville home. The market was very active in their neighborhood at the time and their plan was to try selling themselves for a week before I put it on the market. It sold within a few days. I will be happy to email you some recent comps - "active", "pending" and "sold" - which should help you in pricing. Use good photos, be descriptive and good luck.

No, I don't believe you can post a "FSBO" on trulia. There are many FSBO site that you can post to. be careful because some of them sell your information. Just remember nothing is free. You get what you pay for. 95% of all homes are sold by Realtors. You will likely pay for not listing by taking less for your home, paying for inspections, contributing to buyers costs, additional monthly payments, or advertising and in most cases all of the above plus a commission when you eventually list it with an agent. A good agent will more than pay for themselves. unbundled services and discount agents are just like going to a fast food restaurant and expecting a top notch dinner with full service. Just know that when paying for fast food you get fast food, when you hire a discount agent why does the agent need to give a discount to get your business? Probably because they don't have enough business. If they can't negotiate a good commission for themselves what makes you think that they can negotiate good terms in your favor when you get an offer.
