Hi Michael, as many of the agents mentioned below, you cannot post your own home for sale on Trulia. But there are other sites for home owners looking to sell by themselves (for a fee of course). Google "Fore Sale By Owner" and you'll find many of them. But you may find after spending money on websites and advertising you need to list it with an agent. In that case you would have wasted all that money. There are companies that will do "Flat Fee" listings. Typically you pay a dollar figure for the agent to enter the property into MLS and post it on the web. You would be required to do most everything else (print advertising, marketing materials, scheduling showings, walking potential buyers through the house, qualifying buyers, negotiating, etc....). The other option is a traditional listing. For a commission, a realtor will handle everything and take on all the risk. If you try to sell yourself and you don't find a buyer, all the money you spent is gone. If you hire an agent and the house doesn't sell, the agent has taken on all the risk. Hope that helps.

Could be almost anything and of course it seems unclear as to what part of the buying process you are in. I would ask for a better explanation of what is happening from the Realtor. Otherwise, you cannot get to the banks involved on a short sale withut written authorization from the seller. If you could get that, then you could talk to the banks too. However, if you have never done a short sale before that could cause more harm then good.... more
