As an owner you can not, only an agent can post homes for sale and if listed, you have to have your listing agent edit the pictures

one huge advantage of using a real estate pro to help sell your home is the amount of exposure you get through MLS listings. It is a great way to get your property shown to "its new owner". The agent is another way to get a great advantage too. Your interest is put above anything else by your agent. Our job is to take care of you and to watch out for you first. An agent can help you know what a good listing price is for your home. By comparing like homes you can price yours to sell fast. An advantage of selling your home yourself is you do not have the commissions. But, you have to field all calls yourself and show your home without the assistance of an agent. The commission is saved by FSBO but with real estate there is a lot of paperwork that must be completed correctly. This is an advantage of having an agent. My broker really stated it best when she said, "I don't sell homes, I just help facilitate the paperwork on buying one." Basically, our job is to make selling your home a easy process for you.

Most listings feed automatically to Trulia from the MLS. Trulia does NOT allow for sale by owner listings - the property must be listed with a licensed real estate professional.

Larry as I'm sure you know it all comes down to exposure and professional representation...a for sale by owner has access to a very limited (and often unqualified) audience. If you want to try FSBO do it for a limited amount of time....I would advise 3-4 weeks maximum. If unsuccessful put it in the hands of a professional.
I welcome the opportunity to discuss the seller advantage of working with WestMark Realtors and specifically me! I will provide you with a market analysis with a recommended price range as well as an indepth look at what we offer.
Thank you,

Yes you can still sell your home. It all depends on the condition and most importantly the location.
You said it is listed so your Realtor should be able to show you strong hard numbers to get the home sold and put money in your pocket. If you do not have a realtor already then I can be more specific and give advice. I just do not want to interfere if you are already represented.

Have a great week.

The simple answer is "yes," VA loans are assumable. Loans made prior to March 1, 1988, were unconditionally assumable--with or without lender qualifying of the buyer. After that date, assumptions were only allowed with buyer qualification by the servicing lender. If the assumptor has their own VA eligibility, it can be substituted for that of the current owner too. A little known fact is that an investor can assume a VA loan. It might not take much equity to do so, and that makes it attractive to the savy investor. The qualifying release of liability takes the risk away from the veteran-seller.
Contact your current servicer for their qualification package.
Good luck!

Wait a while and Walmart will have agencies all across the USA. I'm curious if the Walmart Agency agents will resemble the Walmart shoppers?

This always comes down to the same answer. How does the price compare to other homes in the area. What about other homes that are under contract or have recently sold?

Here is what I recommend. Go to your agent and have them take you to the 3 or 4 closest comparable homes. If you can see one that is pending that is even better.

Now is the time to be honest with yourself... How does your home stack up? If you can't be honest and look at your home as a buyer would then this will not work. If you can it will enlighten you and I think you will have our answer. Remember it doesn't matter what you paid for your home... that has nothing to do with it's value in today's market place. Pricing is critical in this market and so is condition. You only have one chance to be new on the market and that chance is gone... now you need to smart and price the home and make sure it is in the best possible condition it can be in.

Best of luck to you!
