UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hello, The only way to get your FSBO home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, but you could also pay for what's called a flat fee listing service if you want to sell by owner (generally not a good idea). We created UpNest ( to help home sellers get the best value possible. All you have to do is submit a few details about your home, and we'll invite several top local agents to submit proposals to you. Since agents are competing to earn your listing, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services, saving you a lot of money. There's no risk to try us at all, and it's completely free for you. Good luck! ... more

Since Trulia is an agent only platform the Postlet feeds from FSBO's tend to get blocked.

Hi Jpmccarthy14,
The more pictures you have of your home, inside & out, the areas of interest around your home & town the better. Your agent can help you add photos and help you highlight the best features, they often know what buyers in your area are looking for. Trulia has changed several rules very recenty.
Best of luck with your sale.

Jonny Lowell-Mazzye answered:
Hi Gnutram,

This is a great question, and my colleagues have all provided excellent answers. I suppose the main things to be considered would be:

*what would the tax ramifications of selling your unit be? Depending on how much profit you make on the sale ($250k for individuals, $500k for couples) you may owe taxes on the excess profit

*what would you do with the money were you to sell? If it is money that you seem to be comfortable without, then it obviously makes sense to keep it invested, and there are few stronger investments than real estate.

I agree with what some of my colleagues that there is a bit of a stagnation in the rental market pricing, so in the long term your unit might not fetch enough to make it worth your while; if this is the case, selling would be a good common-sense option.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions; I live and work in Jersey City, and I provide a free comparative market analysis to prospective sellers.

Best Regards,

Annette Lawrence answered:
When you purchased this condo, it was not through an Open House.
In Florida, the "No Open House" rule is more the standard than the exception.
Still condos are bought and sold on a daily basis.
You do not mention if you have a professional on your side.
If you don't, you won't have access to the greatest resources available in regards to getting your unit sold.
The enforcement of the 'condo bylaws' just like the enforcement of Deed Restrictions tend to protect value rather than erode. There are MANY options, which ones are available to you depends on the choices you make. Consult with your real estate professional. They've done this a dozen times a year.

Best of success,

If you are selling your home on your own without the assistance of a realtor then you should have an attorney draw up all the documents that you need to sell your home. Just give your lawyer the information about the buyer and your property and they'll do the rest. ... more
