Could be for a variety of reasons, such as buyers' change of mind, financing issues, buyer not returning their agent's call, etc.

Short answer is yes - the flat fee companies are fairly clear about a co-broke needing to be offered for them to place the listing in the MLS.

And the reason is the MLS rules - the whole purpose of the MLS is for agents to advertise properties to each other with an attached offer of compensation. No co-broke offer, no MLS listing.

If you're looking to list your home without having to pay any agent at any point, your best bet would be a free service such as craigslist or Zillow. only is open to broker-listed homes, be it a full service company or flat-rate service.

If and when you do list with an agent, he/she can post it for you, ask; or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into the site.

Todays buyer is looking for the perfect home. If this feature is going to date the home and disturb the flow of the home then that $500.00 is money well spent. You want the home to put its best foot forward. There are many homes to choose from and you want to make sure the buyers are keeping your home at the top of their short list. Dont let a dated piece of furniture confuse the message. ... more

Sherry, sounds like you had a bad realtor experience fueling your sentiments....sorry about that. As with any profession, some pros are better than others. A very good agent with strong internet marketing skills is a tremendous ally. Price is $0 until success is achieved, at which time I like to believe the fee will be viewed as very fair. Depending on the agent you choose, showcase exposure on and other sites will be part of the exposure you receive.

Good luck to you,
Jeanne Feenick

Jane, Why would searcher send his email address to you for steps? Fishing for a client?

Searcher, It is my understanding and I'm sure other agents will contribute/correct me if I'm wrong but to list your home on Trulia you must have your home listed with an agent. That agent can then put that listing on Trulia.

If you are doing an FSBO you may do a blog with information/photos ect.. about your home.
