iF YOU ARE LISTED WITH A Realtor you can, if you are selling on your own, as for sale by owner, you cannot. The properties listed on Trulia are all listed by a Realtor and only Realtors can list properties
on this site.

Good Luck to you!

It’s a function of what the market is telling you. If your competition is selling and you are not, ask why. If you've had 12-15 showings and no offers, ask why. If your entire market segment is stagnant, no showings, no offers, no sales, it may not be you or your price but it also depends on your motivation.
Your agent should be doing updated market analysis and keep you informed so you can make the best decision. I've also written several times that before you drop your price; make certain there are not other factors you should address first. Is your home market ready with good curb appeal on the outside and nicely staged on the inside? Are your marketing materials and pictures as good as they should be? Is your home easy to show or do you require appointments, stick around and otherwise try to "help" which really means getting in the way?
Consider all of these issues and if you feel everything else is as good as it can be and your getting showings but no offers, consider your price.

Charlie - you and I will continue to disagree upon this point. You need to put on a REALTOR hat and not an IT hat for this. I spent 29 years in IT and I totally disagree with your premise. It is important for an agent to ensure that when a house goes from active to pending - listings on the web get modified as soon as possible to reflect the true status. I realize that many agents might not check sites, but Trulia is one site that does let agents update their own listings to ensure that the correct information is being displayed. With that in mind, you could easily have a one character box that is changeable either manually by the listing agent or via data feeds that you get for the listing status. Simple. Changing the status from active to pending is NOT an error. Having a listing show active when it was sold 3 months ago IS an error. ... more
