Unfortunately you can not list your home on Trulia as a FSBO. It has to be listed with an agent in order to be listed here. I do list homes in your area and would be happy to help you.

If you want to move to your new home and need to sell your home in order to accomplish a purchase, then marketing it now is a great idea. People will shop online for months before stepping into a home they will purchase. Once they start looking, they will compare your house to others, and then come back to the best choice. People compare price, location, timing, and conditions or features. Once they put a home under contract, it takes from 30-45 days to close (inspections, loan approval with appraisal, certifications, underwriting, and title are a few details that take time to compile). Allow yourself some time to prepare your house for sale, time for your Realtor to introduce and advertise your home, and time for people to decide that your house is THEIR next house! An average home will sell in approxiimately 6 months, although the market is changing for the better. Price, availability of the home to meet the buyer's timing needs, and the features & conditions of your home help determine how quickly your home will sell.

Hi, Jennifer,
If you haven't selected an agent yet, you should. Spring will be here before you know it and people are already shopping online for spring/summer turnover. I have a list of questions to ask agents in your interview and suggestions on ways to get the most value from your agent.

I read an article recently that said on a national level about 25% of tax appraisals are too low, 50% are in a reasonable range and 25% are too high. Sold comparables within the last 3 to 6 months will give you a better target number for a homes actual value. ... more

Are you willing to discount the price of your house by a comparable percentage that I am willing to discount my commission? In other words, if I discount my commission by 20% will you discount the price of your house by 20%? "Maybe," you say. "Is this a reasonable request.?" ... more
