Hi Lori,

No you can't post for sale by owner homes on Trulia for free. You'd have to pay to get on to the MLS through a flat fee listing service or stick with the few sites that allow you to post your home like Craigslist.

FSBO homes typically sell for a lot less than agent represented homes, defeating the purpose of trying to save money by bypassing an agent.

We created our service at UpNest to help home sellers get the best value possible when selling. Top local agents compete to earn your business. When agents compete, they bring out their best commission rates and value added services. There's no risk to try at all, and our service is completely free for sellers.

Good luck!

There are townhouses and small single family homes you could get for that price. If I were you I would look up to $120k because after negotiating you might get them down to $110k.

I suggest going to the website I list below to see a general idea of what some of these repairs made be. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Hope this helps!

Could you please share with me a bit more information? You posed this question with nothing to go on.
Is your home currently on the market for sale?

A lot would depend on how much you fixed it up. If it's the forclosure one that started at $99,900 it was on the market 92 days before it went under contract. Also what is the neignborhood like? One problem sellers have been having is they find a buyer willing to pay their price and then the house will not appraise. You would have to justify to an appraiser why your house went up in value in 8 months time in a declining market. I am licensed in MD & PA and would be happy to assist you, but sounds like it's going to be a tough one. ... more
