Don't waste your time trying as your home needs to be listed with an agent to be posted on trulia.

I know they don't make that very clear, and you're not the first person (probably not the last, either) who has questioned it.....

Try - they accept for sale by owner listings!

Best wishes....

Please consult an attorney with your question. However, a local Realtor could advise you whether a certain home has sold in your market area.

Hi Marbalea,

Cherrie has a wonderful answer but she probably meant to say, "...short sales will have an adverse affect on your credit and will DISABLE you from purchasing a home for at least 2 years." (smile) ... more

Make sure and interview the agent! There are hundreds of agents that state they have done short sales and they have no clue! Ask how many short sales have you done? And out of those 100 short sales you submitted Mr Agent, how many were successfully taken by the bank? Do you know the true closing ratio on short sales Mr. Agent? The answers 1 out of 6 are successful. Don't be surprised if they answer most of them, because my office holds a 98% success ratio at closing short sales. So they you will know they are great at what they do. And then when I interview out or town agents, it amazes me when I ask them, "What is your procedure for collecting the short sale documents and what documents will you require from my seller?" most of them can NOT answer this question, so I know they are bluffing. Ask for References and call and quiz the previous sellers. Please mae sure and close with an attorney, you don't pay him, the lender does, but you pick him. I say this so they can get you a full release in writing. Lots of short sale clients do not get a release and I have seen people still held responsible AFTER the closing, for the shorage amount and you don't want that! Good luck! ... more

Hi Tim,

Trulia currently shows 33 3-bed, 2-bath homes for sale in Calumet City. Perhaps you can find some comparable homes here and review how long they have been on the market.

Best Wishes,
