Hello, 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 (http://www.upnest.com) 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. http://www.upnest.com Good luck!... more
Call your realtor directly and tell them of your decision... now! They may be pissed and you may owe some amount for marketing depending on the agreement you signed (and you may be able to negotiate the amount if you do). But don't wait. Call them now and tell them you want to withdraw your home from the market. This is a discussion for you and your realtor and not a bunch of random folks on an internet forum.... more
Joe, In our area -- SW Washington and the North Coast of Oregon there are some southerners. Actually I was born in Arkansas and I know of several people in my area from Oklahoma. Mostly though this is the land of the Scandanavians. Lumbermen and fishermen. Lots of us retired folks here too these days. We're a hop and a jump from Astoria on Puget Island. If you want to live in a beautiful area with water, water, water you've chosen a grand place to consider. Astoria, Long Beach, Illwaco, Cathlamet.... all Oregon and Washington little towns.

I would suggest you call a local Realtor to help you with your search. I'm not overly familiar with CA protocols, but if like here in NC, most Realtors don't charge any fees to their buyers. Why not get some local help?? Good Luck... more

I suggested to some people from calfornia that they spend a winter on the oregon coast before buying here. They explained to me that had a place in mexico where they would winter. Well after three years they sold their place in mexico. Apparently it was a family place and when one member passed they had to sell to satisfy the rest of the family. The did one winter here and that was that, they put their place up for sale and moved to Medford Or. I saw them as they were packing to move, how can you stand all this rain they said?
Well it's not just the rain but the gloom that comes with it, I'm typing this from Palm Springs where many Oregonians that can afford it go to spend the winter.
