No, you cannot post on the MLS without a real estate agent. With that said, you don't have to pay 6% in order to work with a real estate agent. You can use flat fee MLS companies like Hauseit in NYC to post your home on the MLS for nothing more than a one-time, flat fee.

Under the FSBO model, do bear in mind that you'll still have to do a fair bit of work in terms of showing the property, negotiating and overseeing the overall deal process.

We haven't had an inspection as of yet but we do know there was a hail storm in the area last year. If the roof needs repairs would the VA fix this even if the home is 'as is'?…

You might want to call Trulia customer service. But unless your home is listed for sale, I don't really see the point in doing that.

Hi Theana,
If you haven't already been looking for a home to purchase , now would be the perfect time .
If you close around the middle of August , you will not have a mortgage until October , and you will have plenty of time to get moved, have your rental cleaned and get back your deposit.
Please contact me with questions you may have, have a Blessed Day, Thanks, Donna Sipley

Let's be real clear here, a home can not have an appropriate walk assessment without knowing something about those who will live there.

The family with 2 and 8 year olds may find a community park a big asset.
A family with a different composition may find a pharmacy within waking distance of greater value.

Then let's be aware, for some 1/2 mile is considered an easy walk while others will sate 1 mile and those who understand health wise choices may celebrate a 2 mile radius.

Others who commute to work will place a high value on public transit while those who tele-commute see little value. Still others will add a risk aversion premium to a public transport element.

For a home to be considered walkable, you need to be able to accomplish 80% of your monthly tasks without using a car and within the requirements of the resident. A home that presents a 90% WalkableHome Score places the owner in an environment where there will be options available for early mortgage payoff, college tuition savings or giving that retirement account a gigantic shot in the arm.

Your real estate professional can provide you a WalkableHome Score based on the profile of the home occupants. Without knowing the lifestyle of the occupant a walk score is like a Zestimate...not of great value to anyone.

If you are looking to purchase a home in the Tampa Bay area of Florida and would like to see a sample of a Walkable Home Report, just give me a call and leave your contact information.
No. don't use that 'contact' button.
No, don't use Trulia email.
Go old school and call, if you are serious.

Best of success,
