Kathy Burgreen answered:
Assuming you're a licensed realtor, start contacting your colleagues who pay monthly advertising fees to Trulia (check the comps listings on Trulia). Your colleagues have personal reps at Trulia with direct phone numbers. I'm sure if you ask them to do you a favor, have them call their rep to fix your listing, it should just take a few minutes. In return, you will need to do them a favor or pay them a fee in the future. ... more

Scott Godzyk answered:
Everything should always be in writing, no exceptions which would avoid this. It is never recommended to list subject to finding housing which also would have avoided this. At this point you should have a clause in your sales agreement what happens to escrow when this happens. Here anyway we would turn to the clerk of courts for a hearing with a judge. Ask your listing agent what to do next ... more

From time to time send them a email (anonymous) asking questions see if they answer the email give them 2 times and if not fire them the listing contract says they will use due diligence in finding a buyer. They are NOT working for you! Hire someone who will work for the commission. No reason to pay for something you are not getting. ... more

Unless it's written into the contract, yes, typically you can take a pressure-mounted shower curtain rod that's not permanently mounted to the walls.

Hello Ellen,
Listings are sent to Trulia through a variety of feed sources such as partners, brokers, agents, third-party feed providers, or directly from an MLS. Price changes need to be updated at the source of the listing.

Once updated your listing will update on Trulia within 24 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

After you sign into your account, you will click on your listing 'edit listing' and scroll down until you reach the photos. They should give you an option to remove current photos by clicking on the X, and upload new photos. Make sure you hit 'done' when finished so it saves your work. I have found that when changing photos on Zillow and Trulia, it takes 24 hours sometimes for the new photos to appear. You may have to reorder the photos when they appear as well. New updated photos do make a big difference, you are smart to change them out. Good luck! ... more

Sally Grenier answered:
Trulia is not a real estate company. It's just a national website that pulls listings from different MLSs. Any Realtor can get listings posted on Trulia via listing syndication services from their MLS. What is your question exactly? If you're wanting to sell your home, you can contact any local Realtor. ... more

Do not pay attention to any of those values. None are truly related to market value. For a market value look at recent sales that are comparable to your home or contact a local Real Estate Agent for a free analysis. Both Zillow and Trulia use a formula to arrive at their values. ... more

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi Guy,

You would have to pay for what's called a flat fee listing service for your home to be on Trulia. You can easily post on Zillow, though.

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 out at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

Randy Stoker answered:
Trulia does not support For Sale By Owner listings. All listings on Trulia are generated by the listing Real estate agent; Trulia scans the MLS data base and posts that information to their web site. If you have your home listed through a licensed Realtor then your listing should appear on Trulia within 72 hours after going live in the MLS system ... more

Adam J. Nelson answered:
From a legal standpoint, if the adjustable shelving is affixed the property and you plan to remove, you will need to disclose that in your sale listing.

Does the adjustable shelving provide significant personal meaning? By removing the shelving would it devalue the closet or other area it is located in? If it isn't of personal value and could potential take away from the closet or area it is in, I would suggest leaving it.

Again, great question to ask your Seller's Agent.
