Victory Property Management answered:
It all depends if there is a demand for that type of property. You could own a one-of-a-kind property but if it is in an area that no one wants to live in, then you will still have trouble selling.

An investor is going to offer less than a typical owner occupant because they intend to make money on the resale. Often their discount rate is 30% off market value.

Why don't you talk to a local real estate agent and see what they suggest. Though you pay them commission out of your sales price, they will also work hard to get you the best price available.

I've noticed this problem myself trying to edit profile info and having reviews provided - as the people providing the reviews got very frustrated using the system and have given up! It doesn't work like it used to. I think this all got worse when it blended in with Zillow. I've tried contacting trulia to explain the situation and get nowhere.

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hello,

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.

http://www.upnest.com

Good luck!

Trulia doesn't allow for sale by owner listings, you will have to have it listed by an agent if you wish to have it featured on this site.

The first thing I would recommend is to double check with your accountant. However, most likely if you lived there most of the time for the last 2 years you would not have to pay capital gains tax on the proceeds. ENJOY!

Next, the time of year depends on several factors. Right now is an AMAZING time because of the shortage of inventory paired with the low interest rates for buyers. It's a perfect storm. In general, there are more buyers looking in the Spring/Summer, and theoretically there are more homes on the market at that time which increases competition for your home. In practice, I find another big sales time is actually 4th quarter because while there are fewer buyers, the buyers are serious because they typically need to move before January. All of these tid bits are good to know, but the truth is a really good agent would be able to look at the market and look at your home and put a strategy together that is right for your property and your personal goals. Every one of my marketing strategies have been different for every home and client I have represented. Find the agent who takes the time to tailor fit it for you!

Holly Dede answered:
If your realtor is a member of the MLS in Charlotte, and lists your home in the MLS, it should be syndicated to Trulia. Because over 90% of the buyers find their home online at websites like Trulia, it is really important to have maximum exposure to as many sights as possible. There is a service called "ListHub" which will send hundreds of websites the information from the MLS, and some agents have more bells and whistles on the internet than others. GOOD LUCK and happy selling!! ... more

Simon's answer was the first time I ever heard of a way for FSBO's to list here on Trulia. I have always been told the only way homes, with exceptions of rentals, can be placed on this site was thu downloads of Multiple Listing Systems, typically via a site such as ListHub which acts as the median. If your home is already on here as a FSBO, would be interested to know how it got there. ... more

The only way to be listed on Trulia is if your home is listed by a realty company. They flow on to this site automatically through the multiple listing system. Zillow.com, ForSaleByOwner.com and Craigslist are your best bets as a FSBO

Good Luck

Hello-
Whew-listing property on here is not easy...the fact that you went out of your way to establish an account has got to be even more frustrating...I was unaware you could list anything on here if it were FSBO...I do not think you can...so, here also is my plug...I have listed and sold in Montibello, with the last sale being the Mendel's home...
certainly it is a new year...you have tried some different routes to sell the property before I see...certainly I think you are missing the boat here-the best times I feel for that neighborhood to have a home on market at is the Spring...Mid-march into the Spring/Summer...simply due to the grand yards and gorgeous tree lines-what is better than driving in your neighborhood come April & May of every year?
Let me know if I can be of any assistance, I would certainly welcome the opportunity to earn your business.

The Graveline Group answered:
Listing for sale by owner is absolutely your right, but the statistics aren't in your favor. We always recommend listing with a local Realtor. Realtors adhere to a strict code of ethics which offers you consumer protection and piece of mind. The services you receive from a Realtor are well worth the expense and if you break it down, often times agents work for less than minimum wage for all the hours we put in. Seriously consider listing with a Realtor. Trulia has numerous Realtors with reviews that you can go through and verify. For sale by owner is an extremely difficult task that will occupy much of your time, and in the end and we say this only because the statistics support it, you may not be able to sell by yourself. Whatever you choose to do, we wish you good luck! ... more

All good answers below.... You must of used a single agent brokerage so once resolved, re-list with a company of more than one where the listing agent reports to a broker in charge. I wish you the best of luck with this and hopefully this does not reflect poorly on all of us as 'professional' Realtors!! I've never heard of such a thing happening like this ever !! ... more

You should have your agent check the information in the MLS. Be careful about what you are using to determine you square footage though- there have been many lawsuits over incorrect square footage. ... more

If you have the money to spend, this can be a great idea to fix many things & make your home stand out in the market. But be aware that a Buyer is most likely not going to rely on your report. They will have their own inspections & find still more things to be fixed (remember, inspectors are paid to find things that need to be fixed) ... more

Danielle Nicholl answered:
I always recommend that Sellers not be there when a home is being shown. I have had times where clients cannot leave, so I recommend that they try and stay out of the way for the buyers. You want buyers to be able to feel comfortable and try to imagine this as their home. It is very uncomfortable to have a Seller walking around watching you as you open closets & telling everything that makes it their home. ... more
