Hi Diane,

You would have to pay for what's called a flat fee listing service for your home to be on Trulia as for sale by owner.

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!

Sorry for your current situation. If you would like to contact me I work with an investor who I could bring to the property and see if he would be able to give you a fair price. Feel free to contact me anytime.

I assume that you are interchanging 'Realtor' and 'real estate agent' with each other - not the same thing. If you are not a licensed agent you wouldn't need a 'dual agency disclosure'. ... more

Susan. Yes, you will have some costs involved with the sale of the property. You will owe the State of Penna a 2% realty transfer tax which is usually split between the buyer and the seller and is based upon the sales price of the property. You will have your attorney's costs, there should be costs to prepare a new deed and to record it and to handle any paperwork that the attorney will do for you. The attorney should be able to complete any and all documents for you, the agreement of sale, the docs for the financing, etc. If the property being sold is not your own personal property and was an investment or vacation property you may also want to talk with an accountant so you are prepared for any tax issues that may come up. If you have a mortgage currently on the property you may want to research any issues so far as selling the property and holding a mortgage on your own as there are protection clauses within the mortgage that may see you having to pay your current mortgage off in full. ... more

So sorry to hear about your situation. You stated "contracts have been signed", not sure if you have accepted an offer on your home, or if you are referring to signing a listing agreement. I am not an attorney and must tell you that I cannot give legal advice, however, from the veribage of the document the broker is asking you to sign, I would definitely consult with a real estate attorney in your area before signing it. Especially if you have accepted an offer on your home, there may be other legal ramifications from the actions or inactions of your realtor that you are not aware of, which a real estate attorney could advise you on. Good luck. ... more
