No you cannot. Only real estate professionals can post on Trulia. Try Zillow instead.

Hello Mary Anne,

You actually can't list on Trulia as for sale by owner. You would have to pay for what is known as a flat-fee listing service to be on Trulia. Zillow is just more FSBO friendly.

If you're looking for the best value possible, we created our service to help connect home sellers with top performing agents that compete against other agents for your listing. Because agents know they are competing, they bring out their best services and rates, sometimes lowering commission, which can help you get the highest net gain possible.

Best of luck!

Go to your address and CLAIM the LISTING then request removal based on HOME SOLD.

If that doesn't work, contact Support found right at the top of this home page.

Good Luck.

Hi Carl,

I have to politely disagree with the gentleman who does not find PSL to be a wonderful place to live. We were recently ranked #1 city to live in the state of Florida by Movoto.

We were also just ranked #8 in the nation for projected job growth by Forbes:

As far as helping with expenses, that is not something that is in the scope of what a Realtor typically does. I wish you luck in your journey, and if you are ever in the area and need assistance in finding a home, I would be more than happy to help!

You are searching in the right area if you are searching for homes in Port St. Lucie Florida. Anywhere to the south of us prices on a comparable property are 25% to 35% higher. We have many Floridians relocating to our area because of better traffic conditions, the amount of home you can get for your money and the quality of the area. WE love St. Lucie and love serving our buyers and sellers here. The best areas for you would be our SW area or Torino. There are many selections for you. ... more

I assume you are asking about HOA raising the monthly fee? If is never guaranteed to stay at the rate you are paying. Like most things, costs for services increase with time.

Dan Tabit answered:
Fannie Mae is the source of many home mortgages. When one of their loans results in Foreclosure, the home is listed with an agent and advertised as a Fannie Mae Homepath Home. These homes have special financing available, typically with only 3% down payment required, the appraisal waived and up to 3% in Seller paid concessions toward closing costs.
If you are tight on down payment and closing costs and run across one of these homes they may be a good option to consider. In some cases they have done some upgrades or repairs, but still may need additional work.
I've attached a link to the Fannie Mae website so you can learn more about it. Best of luck.
