UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi Dora,

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

Good luck!

A lot of good advice here already. So my answer isn't comprehensive; it's just filling in some of the yet-unaddressed areas.

First, hopefully, you interviewed multiple Realtors before deciding on this one. Reflect on the process and what gave you confidence (or what raised some concerns) at that time.

Second, the interview process with a Realtor should involve the agent presenting you with some sort of marketing plan. For instance (and these are basic): Putting your home on the MLS, putting a sign in your yard, possibly holding open houses, etc. It should also detail other activities: brokers' open, advertising in publications, whether there will be a custom website for your house, etc. The question is: Whatever your agent promised, is he/she doing what was promised? At the very least, ask for regular (as in weekly) status reports.

Third, your questions deal in part with continuing agent follow-up and responsiveness. You need to talk to your Realtor about those issues--such as keeping in contact with the third guy. (As well as the first and second.) And here's a tip: If any or all of those three bought something else, your Realtor should find out how those properties differed from yours. That can be a clue as to what they (and others who haven't even looked at your house) found unappealing.

Fourth: As already noted in the answers (but worth repeating) 3 showings in 23 days isn't much in most areas of the country. Admittedly, it might be OK where you are. But ask your Realtor. And, unfortunately, the answer to few showings is usually (though not always) a price cut.

Fifth: Get more advice about the pool. The pool will scare away a lot of families with small children or pets. However, in some areas of the country, a pool is a really desirable amenity. You have to find out what it is where you are, and then act. Right now, you've got the worst of both possible worlds: (1) The frightening pool scaring away some families, and (2) A non-functioning pool for people who want a pool. Either offer a functioning pool (that is, you have it fixed) or fill it in, create an attractive back yard, and make it more family-friendly. [No: You can't say "I'll let the buyer decide which way to go on that." That doesn't work.]

Hope that helps.

You need to have a listing appointment with an Agent from Burleson (like me) and find out if your home could sell fast enough. Some homes in Burleson are going under contract extremely fast if priced right. I am talking about days. It always determines on price, condition and location and Burleson is a great place to live. Contact me and it is free to find out what your home would be worth. Nancy Sillers with Keller Williams 817.929.6961 ... more

Where is the link to your listing? you did not attach it to your question!
Are you a Realtor with a listed Property or are you a Seller, selling the property by Owner. If you are
selling by owner you cannot list your property or add photos for that matter to your listing, as only
licensed Realtors and their brokerages with MLS listings are allowed to post listings on Trulia.
