Usually never and in the rare case, only with the owners permission, most often accompanied by a hold harmless signed by the buyer and insurance if anything is being put in the home

Hi Cindy,

Trulia doesn't allow FSBO homes listed manually. You would have to pay a premium for a flat fee listing service. The NAR states that FSBO homes typically sell for an average of $184,000 compared to agent assisted homes at $230,000. That's a big difference! So selling with an agent will usually get you more money in the end, and it will sell faster with less hassle on you.

We created our service ( for home sellers looking for the best deal possible. Agents will compete against each other to earn your listing, so you're more likely to receive a great commission rate. You'll also be able to compare agents so you can select the best agent possible! There's no risk to try us out, and it's completely free for you!

Good luck!

Hi Mike,

There are a lot of great Realtors out there. I can also advise you to "hire me please" but what you really want is someone who specializes in your area. Who knows Mission Viejo like the back of their hand. Find one who also lives here, sends their kids to school here and can tell potential buyers what is so wonderful about Mission Viejo. As agents we aren't just selling your home, we are selling the area and the ability to create a wonderful family life here. A good agent will be able to turn any negative into a positive for a potential buyer. They will also be able to answer tough questions on the fly when necessary.
Good Luck in your search!

My office has a FSBO deal that I think you might like, Please go to our website , and see what we can offer you to get the best possible marketing and your property viewed by over 20,000 agents.
I would love to help you with setting this up if you think this is a avenue that would benefit your sale of the home, which I believe is a very inexpensive but very valuable way to reach potential clients.
You will also stop getting calls from agents asking to list your property once you have used this process.

Let me know if this is something I can help you with? Please feel free to call Sean Rees Or Moka at 714-944-9618 with questions .

Best of luck ,

Talk with your loan officer...they or their boss should be able to speak with the underwriter and find a solution that makes the lender and everyone else happy...or at least satisfied. Should that not be the case I can close in a pinch such as this in 10 days. Hopefully you don't need this kind of rush service! ... more

Better Solution answered:
Why bother with this house only! There are many short sales and REO houses. Once you live in a house 1 year, you get attached to it . Hiring an attorney will cost you and lot of money and court dates. Believe me you don't want to get in family fights. It hurts a lot of feelings. If had lived in a big family and learn to give up thats the best solution. ... more

It can be a catch 22 you are right. The best thing to do is either do the numbers or work with an agent that understands and can do the numbers for you. If you can sell fast and buy the property of your dreams then yes it is a great time to sell and buy.
I work mostly with investors and we buy at super low prices so if you could get a deal like that and then sell it would work out great for you.

Hope that helps.
I would be happy to give you a free home report of the price it would take to sell right fast.

It primarily depends on how many units there are in the complex, versus the garages. Scarcity drives the value.

Yes, it's high for escrow fees, and a little high for typical closing costs unless your loan is a FHA.
