Hello Angie,

The only way to get your FSBO home listed on Trulia is to have it listed on the MLS. Only agents have access, but you could also pay for what's called a flat fee listing service if you want to sell by owner (generally not a good idea).

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 at all, and it's completely free for you.

Good luck!

Hello Renae,
Trulia does not allow for-sale-by-owner listings on their site as they say that this is a means to cut down on spammers using the site. You would need to list your home with a real estate firm in order for it to be seen as "for sale" on Trulia.

I suggest that you post it on and as their services are free.

Best wishes!

Irene, Great question! Are you aware that with most lenders you can sign up to pay your mortgage in two installments monthly, rather than make one payment? The effect of this is that you pay the same amount, but it is like making 13 payments a year instead of 12. The net result is shaving appx. 6 years off a 30 year mortgage. This could be an option for you to more quickly amortize your loan without paying anything additional to principal. Hope that helps. ... more
