Hello,

To post your home for sale by owner on Trulia, click the link below and select “Submit listings for sale.”

You will be redirected to our partner site, Zillow. Once you’re on Zillow’s posting page, please make sure to select “For Sale by Owner” under the address field. Once you activate your listing on Zillow, it will appear on Trulia within 24 hours.

That is a great question. If you paint it go with a neutral color for sure. We are primarily a property management company that handles sales for our owners from time to time and always go with a light beige color. Everyone's furniture matches! If you offered up a paint allowance, offer around $2,000 which is about the going rate for a 2500 sf house depending on the painter. You will save on paint and supply cost, too, by just offering up the allowance. I think this would be a good way to hook a buyer as some folks may just plan to paint the home themselves and spend the allowance to dress up their new home in other ways. Good Luck in getting you home sold! ... more

You could sell it empty but it may sell better if staged. Your agent should be able to guide you. Making sure the home is clean, fresh paint and not needing any repairs.

The best way to find out the going real estate commission rate is to put the Realtor fees on the open market and let the Agents bid your commission rate. Commission fees are negotiable and can vary by zip code. We find the best way to compare commission fees is to reverse-auction them. That is why we created ListingBidder.com; a free service for Sellers who can invite agents to submit their marketing plan and commission structure. It is a patent pending process that is saving Sellers thousands.

It is completely free to the Seller and there is no obligation for the Seller to pick the lowest bid or any bid. The whole time the Seller remains anonymous as we never publish your street address or contact information. Sellers can sit back and review marketing plans, commission bids, ratings and reviews. A big win for the Seller. After all, Agents are not charged to register or bid and they have no obligation to bid. Give it a try: https://www.ListingBidder.com

In most of America it's a Seller's market. Why is the Owner being pressured to sell very low? That doesn't sound right.

William,
There is no straight answer for this. In my experience most For Sale by Owners either happen right away or not at all. Your best prospects will be the people you already know or your neighbors. If after a week to 10 days of posting your home for sale by owner on your own, you don't have it sold, the odds get pretty slim.
Most people trying FSBO think that it's not that hard and that they can save a lot of money. Let me help you realize that it's not the case. You can tell just from all the questions here and on Zillow that people have lots of questions about how to buy & sell. The answers here are just general and can just as easily be wrong for your situation as right.
The key is to find a truly great local agent to help you get top dollar for your home and make it as painless as possible. A great agent is worth more than their commission but a bad one, or none at all can cost you more than any commission. Best of luck however you proceed.
