Hi there,

As an agent, I've had to ask the same question of Trulia and below is what I found:

The MRIS (our local MLS service) no longer uploads directly to Trulia. They stopped their relationship about 2 years ago. Zillow also no longer has a relationship with MRIS as of January this year. (Zillow is typically 2 months to 2 years out of date on most of their information anyway, so don't believe most of what you find there)

If your brokerage does not have an automatic feed to Trulia (a few of the larger nat'l companies do through their franchise) then your agent has two choices. Upload directly (with this option they can actually put more photos in than the MLS allows) or, if they have a Trulia account, then they can call customer service and have them add it from Realtor.com on request.

It depends on who all your agent is using to showcase their listings. All agents don't use Trulia. You may want to inquire with your agent as to where they showcase their homes.

Your agent might not market their listings everywhere unfortunately.

Hi Mr. Seller,

Your agent must upload your listing for it to be featured on Trulia. It's going to show up on Realtor.com and many other websites just as a normal feed into the sites. Rest assured that whoever is looking for your home for sale is going to find it through the vast real estate sites online.

Good luck in your sale!

Depends on the Broker? My Broker automatically uploads to Trulia, and then I will add details and photos. Its a direct feed from the Multiple Listing Services. Just have your listing agent upload, believe it or not, there are a number of agents that just don't use the free systems.. Not a huge deal, sometimes its just a matter of learning new things. The more exposure the better. Good Luck..

Your listing agent needs to add your listing to Trulia. Not all agents are signed up on this site. You need to talk to him and ask him to sign up on Trulia and add your listing so that folks who peruse this site will see your listing.

FYI, your agent can add up to 30 photos to your listing. There are only 6 there. It looks like you have a very nice house. Ask him if he can add more photos to entice people into your house. It's priced well for the Villages and should get activity, especially since it not not a Short Sale.

Good luck to you!

Yes, only your listing agent can answer that question - unless you are selling your home yourself.

Some of the newer listing agreements require your permission for internet marketing. If you are working with an agent, check that you agreed to internet marketing in your listing agreement.

You should be asking that question to your listing agent. . . unless you are using a FSBO service that only lists your property in their website. . a little hard to sell if you aren't in the MLS
