Hello Carole,

Your listing was posted on Trulia through Zillow Rental Manager, which is a partner site that syndicates listings to Trulia and other websites.

You can remove your listing from Trulia by removing it from Zillow Rental Manger: You can deactivate your listing by clicking on Expire on the Listings page or by using the button at the top right of the listing's review page.To permanently delete your listing, click on Delete Listing at the bottom of the listing's left-hand navigation bar. This will erase all data for the listing.

Here is a link to their Help Center with instructions:

Your listing will remove from Trulia within 24 hours once you expire it from Zillow.

Rachael - I'm going to disagree with Larry's response and here's why...
First, I would not want to ruin someone's dream for getting ahead by thinking that there are only 2 scenarios and both are undesirable.
Yes, I agree I would not want to rent/buy from a place where maybe someone was murdered, or ran a meth lab (pretty extreme examples don't you think??) but I certainly think making an offer based on a seller's motivation is about if there are many homes on the market, and the seller is just lumped in and can't make a sale? To me, I love expired listings for making offers with owner financing or other creative terms that possibly you are not being considered or mentioned. There are many homes sold based on a price locked in for 10-15 years or more? A lot!! These kind of deals are becoming more common for motivated sellers that just want to get out yet have a steady income stream in the process. So I don't agree on both hypothetical scenarios and would not want a potential homeowner to avoid this option to get ahead. For you, I'd recommend you carefully evaluate and do your due diligence before signing an agreement. If you have a friend that is in real estate or law, or a title agency you may want to consult with them on any potential agreements you consider.
There are motivated sellers that do not have sneaky reasons for selling...requires asking questions and doing a quick title search to see more about the other liens or issues that may impact the sale of a home. Worth checking....don't just give up based on a post here. Email me directly if you have any other questions about it. Tom Hinz

UpNest Top Realtors answered:

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

Best of luck!

Tristam Bielecki answered:
As a buyer, location is important to me but I think that is the starting point for everyone.

Also, I like houses that have opportunities to personalize while making a positive contribution to value. In other words, I look for places that are not 100% turnkey, for example, a house with a perfect interior but the yard could do with a makeover. ... more
