UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi Trish,

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!

You cannot, and even if you could what you don't realize is this information and pictures of your home are on literally thousands of real estate websites. While I empathize with your concerns I can assure you what I'm telling you is 100% accurate. The moment the house you purchased was put on to the Internet it became what is considered under the existing laws "Public Knowledge" If you and other property owners want this to change it's going to take a concerted effort lobbying your legislators to pass new laws. Only now are people beginning to realize the lack of privacy we all have once we log onto the Internet.

The good news (so to speak) is that honestly there are literally tens of millions of homes just like yours and honestly 99.99% of those on sites like Trulia, Zillow etc are paying absolutely no attention to them unless they are actively for sale or rent.

Dan Tabit answered:
Agents search capability is much greater than what public sites offer, so working with a great agent will be the first step to narrow your choices.
Now with each criteria you add, you will narrow the results tremendously. The good thing about this is that you may find the one or two homes which fit your criteria perfectly. On the other hand, you are limited to what an agent inputs into the system and the accuracy of that input.
I like to start with a very specific search when the specific requests are understood, but then remove filters providing greater results so that my buyer can understand some trade offs they may be willing to make.
Some of the details like the gate in the back yard may be too specific for any search, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Please contact the lawyer who handeled your closing. This kind of a legal question should be answered by a lawyer who is familiar with your closing and your state laws. Good luck.

The agencies aren't who do the advertising for your property. You need to have the best agent available. Interview several and ask what marketing they do--outside of the basics.

Paul and Greg Rosino answered:
Never act FAST! Get the facts, investigate (like going to the County Assessor page and the other suggestions stated) . Be an educated buyer and you will be a satisfied buyer! All the responses have been excellent. Realtors can help but ultimately the money you spend is yours, the neighborhood you live in will be yours, and the home you buy will be YOURS! Once you have the facts and information then you can make a quality offer, and feel good about the situation and hopefully enjoy the process of home buying and ownership. ... more
