UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi Tom,

Working with an agent will get your property listed on Trulia. You can't post for sale by owner homes on Trulia easily. You'd have to pay to get on to the MLS through a flat fee listing service or stick with the few sites that allow you to post your home like Craigslist.

FSBO homes typically sell for a lot less than agent represented homes, defeating the purpose of trying to save money by bypassing an agent.

We created our service at UpNest to help home sellers get the best value possible when selling. Top local agents compete to earn your business. When agents compete, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services. There's no risk to try at all, and our service is completely free for sellers.

Good luck!

An Appraisal that is generated for the purpose of refinancing a home, purchasing a home or establishing a value is not part of public record therefor you will never see a value on a site like this that is generated from an appraisal.

A Tax Evaluation Appraisal will be part of public record and you may be able to search this information but keep in mind that all appraisals are a snapshot in time. Your home appraised for what it did the day the document was prepared. Your home has definitely changed in value since then.

You should not take too much stock in Trulia, Zillow etc because these are estimates only which are generated by sales and other data that the sites track. If you need to know what your home is worth right now you can have a local Realtor do a market analysis for you so that you can get some idea of the worth but the best course of action to determine a sales value is to obtain a new appraisal from a seasoned appraiser.

I hope that helps.

KK, there are a few lots scattered about in Oak Ridge. The type of lot is going to be important as you have noted that you want a specific floor plan. Many times you can maximize your building cost by building a basement home and building a smaller envelope house. Sometimes you can purchase a lot that has proved to be challenging and build a beautiful home to marry with the lot. Are you looking for a basement lot, etc.? ... more
