UpNest Top Realtors answered:
Hello, 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! ... more

Property Owner answered:
I simply picked up the phone and called a local mortgage broker to see if he/she would be interested in doing the paperwork and closing portion of the sale for 1% of the home's final selling price. Lucky for me he was excited to do so and was very polite. There was no high pressure. He offered to list it for me but I'm going to try Zillow first. Homes in my area are selling in a matter of days. He's making a quick $2,000 and makes me happier than paying $11-12K commission to an agent. Life is good. ... more

MCM_STL answered:
The way I read this is that your former agent has another agent in their office who has a buyer looking for something like your home.

It's up to you whether to allow that showing. I wholeheartedly agree that if you do, you need to be clear on what your former agent's expectation for compensation would. Was there anything in your listing agreement that said (s)he'd still get paid if she brought you a buyer within X days of the termination of that agreement? ... more

Charlie Rock answered:
Get on the MLS with a fee based agency. It doesn't cost much. Then you can control the sale. I've sold several homes with a flat fee agency. My on line presence was better than any agent could do. I always sold at full price too. Just like if you had an old school agent, you will use a closing attorney to do all the paper work. ... more
