Hello,

Thank you for contacting us regarding your For Sale by Owner listing. It appears that your listing isn’t active on Zillow yet which is why you are not seeing it on Trulia. Zillow recently implemented a new verification process for manually posted listings on their site.

I have created a ticket on your behalf for the Zillow Consumer Care team. Once they are able to verify your listing they’ll reach out to you to confirm.

Once your listing is active on Zillow it will syndicate to Trulia within 24 hours. We apologize for the delay and we thank you for your patience.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Lease to own is not selling it. It is renting it with a hope they buy in the future. The best way to sell it is to do it right. there are listing agents who are well qualified to work with these types of homes. You may not even need to owner finance in this market. Let them tell you what it is worth as is, what they can sell it for and how owner financing may affect you. There may be cash buyers in your market looking for fixer uppers. If you do it alone, you need a lawyer to over the legal aspect and liability ... more

You and I have similar stories. Glad to know I'm not the only one. To answer your question, do you know if your Mom had a Will? Did your sister have Power of Attorney? At this point, contact an attorney specializing in Estate Planning. Get their advice. ... more

I think it's amazing how many of these realtors didn't read the question enough to answer it correctly. He asked about contact 'after' the house is in contract. So many general answers - like once a month. And this is why your clients are frustrated. We are currently working with a buyers agent who is a terrible communicator and we are two weeks from closing. It's like pulling teeth to get any kind of information about progress from him. ... more

Hello, be sure to get 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 (http://www.upnest.com) 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. http://www.upnest.com Good luck! ... more

I get what you were going for here, but there's a major "ick" factor for me in the notion that a real estate agent should be telling me as a buyer what I want and "educating" me about what my perspective should be. What you see go down on HGTV househunting shows is a bunch of coached garbage.

A house isn't Mary Kay or some other random product you can talk a person into buying. Someone has to be looking for a house like yours and above all else, it has to be at a price they're willing to pay.

Unless you're in an usually slow market, not having sold after a number of months is usually a good sign your price is too high.

I sincerely hope your agent has been providing continual feedback on what needs to change to sell this house.
