To post your home for sale by owner on Trulia, click the link below and select “Submit listings for sale.”

You will be redirected to our partner site, Zillow. Once you’re on Zillow’s posting page, please make sure to select “For Sale by Owner” under the address field. Once you activate your listing on Zillow, it will appear on Trulia within 24 hours.

You 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 more FSBO friendly, though.

For sale by owner can seem like a big money saver, but usually the work of a top performing agent will give you the most money for your home.

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, which can help you get the most money possible for your home.

Best of luck!

Make sure your property stands out from the competition and in buyer's minds. Most buyers want a house that is updated and move in ready. The more you do to present yours in that light, the better. There are many inexpensive ways to improve the appearance of a property. You don't mention how old the condo is or if it is vacant or occupied. Investing in replacing carpeting and light fixtures/hardware can be well worth the investment if your property would benefit from updating. In addition, it needs to be priced right and promoted effectively by your realtor. ... more

I would get a REALTOR or three to give you a CMA (competitive market analysis) and see just what they think it would bring. I have never heard of a sales commission coming off of the appraised value! FSBO properties sometimes have 0% commission added in!

Good Luck!

This sounds like a big misunderstanding that could be resolved by involving a third party. Try contacting the agents broker and ask for an explanation. The broker needs to know what is happening from your perspective and might possibly be able to resolve the problems or explan the issues more clearly than the agent has.

Remember that real estate agents have rules, laws, and a code of ethics to abide by. The broke understands the guidelines he has to follow as well as the consequences if he doesn't.

If you are unhappy with the results of this meeting, you can refer the problem to the local real estate board for their response.
