We looked at a home (bank owned) that was presented as a partially-finished basement, and at first glance it appeared like an abandoned attempt by the previous owner. We put in an offer,…

UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hi Cheryl,

Trulia is likely displaying the old MLS records of your home when it was last sold through the MLS.

In order for your FSBO home to be listed on Trulia, you have to pay for a flat fee listing service. Otherwise your listing won't be updated on the MLS.

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!

If you are a licensed Agent, you need to create a professional profile with your license and upload it from there. If you are a home seller, Trulia doesn't accept FSBO's, so you can't. ... more

"Fix n' Flip" doesn't live in this part of the state, brother -- unless ones idea of a fast sale is a year or so with maybe a 10K profit. In fact, the whole concept is pretty-well passé. Best of luck with all that. ... more

Sun May 18, 2014
Annette Lawrence answered:
My response is NOT rhetorical.
Your concern regarding value is valid.
There is an even greater concern regarding the hazard and peril created by losing control of your homes data...>FOREVER!

Your first step, to demonstrate your concern, is to go to google maps and blur your homes image. This is the favored resource of those who want to create bogus data regarding your home.

Next you must advise all those important to you. all your neighbors, those you work with and strangers on the street, when faced with the need to sell their home to direct their REALTOR to NOT syndicate the property on non-professional websites. THis consideration allows the homeowner and their agent to retain control of where the homes data appears.

Then consult your attorney and make the culprits pay. You are suffering harm and distress knowing your homes is exposed to hoards of strangers without your knowledge, consent or approval.

Trulia and Zillow can ONLY hear the voices of those backed by authority.
Best of success.

Louis Wolfson answered:
Tough situation as most mortgage contingencies in the purchase and sales agreement state that if the closing date has to be extended it is ok with as long as it does not affect your rate. in this case the closing is not being extended. I would check with the lender to see if they can hold the rate. If not you may not have many choices. ... more
