When you created a profile, you had the opportunity to sign up as a pro or as a buyer or seller. Doesn't look like you set up your profile as an agent or lender. Might have to start over. When you do that, you'll input your MLS info. Anything you input into your MLS will syndicate here (if your MLS allows that). Might also want to check with you managing broker or office admin on what to do. ... more

To list directly on trulia's site you would have to go through a licensed real estate agent. If you wish to do a FSBO, try zillow instead.

UpNest Top Realtors answered:

The only way to get your home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, so hiring an agent is the easiest way, 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!

I Agree with Debbie, try Zillow.

Please send me a quick e-mail when you are ready to sell. I'm working with a buyer that is moving to Bakersfield in November.

Good Luck.

UpNest Top Realtors answered:

You can't list on Trulia as for sale by owner. You would have to pay for what is known as a flat-fee listing service to be on Trulia. Zillow is more FSBO friendly, though.

For sale by owner can seem like a big money saver, but usually the work of a top performing agent will give you the most money for your home.

We created our service ( to help connect home sellers with top performing agents that compete against other agents for your listing. Because agents know they are competing, they bring out their best services and rates, sometimes lowering commission, which can help you get the most money possible for your home.

Best of luck!

Pat Kapowich answered:
Let’s say you found an investor, you should have a real estate attorney represent you on the sale of your half. Your brother should have what we used to call an “Equity Share Agreement” drafted by a real estate attorney. The first class way a “sale” of this would be with three real estate attorneys representing each person. The “what if’s” make an equity share agreement fairly thick. Your brother should approve his new “partner.” Most investor would be hesitant to park their cash with a stranger.

On the other hand, it would be best to have you brother refinance you out of the property. If you want to keep your brother; you probably don’t want to hire a real estate attorney to force a sale in a “Partition Action” (which tear families apart).

Simon Campbell answered:
If you have a buyer then you do not have a lease. You have a seller financed mortgage. You should head on down to a local title company and ask them what you need to do to protect both your and your buyer's interests and make this a legal contract. You could also consult with a real estate attorney. ... more
