Thank you for reaching out. Zillow For Sale By Owner listings coming over to Trulia is a new feature recently rolled out because of this we have confirmed there is a technical error regarding Zillow not sending us the Property Owner's phone number through the Buyers Agents List located on the main photo of the property page that's why it is displayed in the contact info section. I apologize for the inconvenience it has caused you. Please kindly edit your Trulia profile and input your phone number so it will appear on your property listing page. Please follow the instructions below.

1. Log in to your Trulia profile
2. Hover your mouse to your name located at the upper right corner of the page and click Profile
3. Input your phone number and click Save

Once you updated your phone number on your Trulia profile, it will automatically appear on your listing page after 24 to 48 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

I see so many tricks, traps and shenanigans by agents that I have developed a new way of deaiong with it. As a BUYER always conduct YOUR OWN RESEARCH. Visit the County Recorder, County real estate and building permit departments. Check for old or recent insurance claims on the property--was there a fire, wind damage or theft they forgot to tell you about? If I find everything is satisfactory---I contact each neighbor and ask lots of questions. You will find at least ONE nosy neighbor. Most important question to me is What is REAL reason for selling? Is it a FIVE D's reason? In my last purchase the seller had three of the D's as a reason ( Divorce, Death, Debt). As a result I offered 35% BELOW listed price directly to the was accepted and I closed in three weeks. I cut out both agents yet they got their commissions.
As a seller....try to never sell a property. Rule #1. You can lose a lot even if you have equity from the sale. Rule #2---Advertise on your own---to let prospective buyers know how to contact you DIRECTLY. A telephone number is good enoug h. This way Buyers agents can reach you with questions or offers in the event your listing agent refuses to answer the telephone or inquiries. Know how much you want for the sale and don't accept one dollar less. Also NEVER tell your listing agent THE REASON for the sale---they might blab it to another agent in the same office---and you will get lots of lowball offers. You put in a lot of effort to buy your house----why sell it? If you do sell----look for a REAL salesman---they will find that ONE person who will pay your price.

Selling a home is very emotional for a seller. Let the professionals handle the sale and take the stress away. Love to help. ... more

This is part of the Obamacare program. It will not be applicable to most sellers but you should check with your accountant and hope that Obamacare is repealed.
