If you are a for sale by owner the post is not allowed; if and when you do list with a broker, ask your agent to post the listing, or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into the site.... ... more

Hi April,
Bone Realty provides visual tours for all the residential listings. This way a potential buyer can look inside and out of the home at their own convenience and see whether or not they would like to schedule an appointment to see the home in person. It is used not only as a sales tool but it saves the seller time and money by not showing it to tire kickers or people who may say they don't like the home on the inside. It also serves as a safety tool to only allow qualified buyers into your home.

You won't be able to market your property on Trulia if it is a FSBO - you will need to list it with a licensed real estate professional.

Hi Lindsey,

If you want to list your home on this site, you can do it yourself. All you have to do is sign up as a member. Then go to the top of the page where it says buy. Click on it and look at the bottom. It will say, Free...list a property.

If that doesn't work, you can always list it on Zillow. On Zillow, I listed my home and wrote the description and all. I like that site much better than this one. Check it out.

Good luck Lindsay.

Hi, I wish as Realtors we would have a magic wand to know exactly how long.... We can compare recently sold properties similar to yours, and lets say the average comes to 12 months.... nobody knows if yours will sell during the first month, the 5th, 12th or even later than that.

Most of it depends on what the currently active buyers are looking for and being in a buyers market these days in most areas, they have a lot to select from....

So to sell quickly your home has to meet a lot of different standards, size and location, upgrades and updates of the home, location and curb appeal, floor plan etc etc. all has to be first class (to beat the competing properties!!!!) and the price has to be right..... So condition of home, location and the right price!

So you really need to sit down with an area experienced Realtor, someone who lived in the area for a while and knows it well... He or she will be able after seeing YOUR home to compare it to similar homes recently sold, and can also preview homes currently on the market and report back to you.

If and when you are ready to list your home for sale, your Realtor also can take you to see a fee most similar homes either looking like yours for the price, or looking at homes at the price you think you would want to list and seeing if they are larger, newer, better upgraded etc. That will help you to be a very well educated and well prepared seller....

Setting the right starting price is very important, and may get less for your home than you may have expected, be prepared and make sure the Realtor is very honest with you .....

Good luck to you!
