To post your home for sale by owner on Trulia, you can list it on Zillow.
Once you’re on Zillow’s posting page, please make sure to select “For Sale by Owner” under the address field. Once you activate your listing on Zillow, it will appear on Trulia within 24 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

If the property is listed, call me and I can help you with the property if it is here in Auburn/Opelika, AL.

If it is not listed and you'd like buyer representation, call me. I am an Accredited Buyers Representative.

If it is not listed and you'd like to go about it alone, then go knock on the door and introduce yourself. OR go to, choose LEE COUNTY and type in the address.

I hope you have your question answered by now, but wanted to share what I have learned. First I would begin with you listing agent and ask she or he if there is information being added to trulia about hour home from multiple sources. I recently learned that the information syndicated from my local MLS/Brokerage will trump what I may enter on some of my personal listings. Trulia informed me that if the site is receiving information from more than one source it may cause a duplicate listing of a home on their site, that can be merged, but may also cause some mis information. Hope this helps.

Kindest Regards,

Hi Ginny,

While your question may have already been answered I thought I would contribute. All of the other answers are correct. You can find all of this information at your local tax assessor's office... ours is in Opelika and the Lee County Court House. However, I have often found inaccurate information and if you have an old or recent appraisal on your home that information will be listed there as well and may save you some time. ... more

Consider the opportunity cost of deploying cash into a declining(real terms) asset class. If you had your cash in a cheap and appreciating asset class such as silver then you would be up about 30% from the start of 2012.

Cash in real estate is a severe liability guaranteed to lose you wealth in real terms.

Consider buying realty when rates are closer to 20% and home prices are 75% lower.

Realty continues to be overbought and illiquid.

Offer 50% of asking price. Worse that can happen is no deal. Move on to next home, offer 50% of asking price. Eventually you will find a motivated seller. What is the rush? Home prices will continue to fall for the foreseeable future. Sorry, but buying a home absent a huge discount is a guaranteed way to lose lots of money. Find the motivated sellers. ... more

Shane Dunn answered:
I think both have potential for you depending upon you needs. Banks tend to have slightly higher rates, but will take riskier loans... especially your local banks, while mortgage companies can offer more competitive rates. A positive to working with a local bank is that there underwriting department is usually located on site, so you can get quicker service. Mortgage companies also have a high level of customer service, but there may be a little longer lag time in there underwriting dept. due to a much higher level of processing they incur.

All in all, I would interview some of each and go with your gut! They all have competitive rates and may also offer you the opportunity to buy down your rate. Some lenders are even offering 100% financing again.
