Hi Victoria,

Trulia doesn't allow FSBO homes listed manually. You would have to pay a premium for a flat fee listing service. The NAR states that FSBO homes typically sell for an average of $184,000 compared to agent assisted homes at $230,000. That's a big difference! So selling with an agent will usually get you more money in the end, and it will sell faster with less hassle on you.

We created our service for home sellers looking for the best deal possible. Agents will compete against each other to earn your listing, so you're more likely to receive a great commission rate. You'll also be able to compare agents so you can select the best agent possible! There's no risk to try us out, and it's completely free for you!

Good luck!

There are many ways to find out the experience level and production volume an agent has with a little bit of internet searching. You can go to the website of the firm the agent is working with. Review the profile page of that agent and see how many listings they have for sale, what the agents profile shows, review how many sales the agent has represented for the listing side of the transaction.
This should review how many years they have been in the business and look for company awards. The experienced agents should have a history of production and service awards. You can also google the agents name and review what websites they link with.
Interview the agent and ask them questions and have them show you what they have accomplished in the buisiness.
