One thing is NO buyer will pay a sellers closing costs. That they are correct. BUT what you can do is price your home to cover expenses. It has to be priced high enough to cover but not so high it is price higher than what the house is worth or it will not appraise and the buyer wont be able to get a mortgage. Ask to speak to the agents managing broker, and let them answer your question ... more

Upon further review of your property page, I see your property is in 'Public Record' status. This means your home is off the market and for informative purposes only. We display property information on Trulia to provide consumers with transparent real estate information. We receive this information from public records gathered by a third-party data collector from your county. Our mission is to empower consumers with information and tools to make smart decisions about homes, real estate and mortgages. For this reason, we do not remove public record property information from Trulia.

That said, we do have ability to remove photos. The photos have been removed from display:

Also referred to as “white ants”, termites are often confused with ants. This common misconception had cost homeowners and commercial property owners a lot and learning how to tell the difference between these two pests can help those affected with infestation deal with the problem accordingly. Because of their sizes, they can easily be mistaken for each other from a distance. But if you look closely you’d notice that – termites have a pale or white color, straight and beaded antennas, and thick segmented bodies; while ants come in a shade of brown or black, and have bent antennas and obvious waists. These characteristics lead us to the fact that they are more closely related to nasty cockroaches.

For some termite species, a gap or crack that is 1/32 of an inch wide (which is twice narrower than the standard thickness of a piece of paper) is enough for an entrance into a limitless feast – which is your home. Termites feed on cellulose like wood, paper and cardboard and homes have a wealth of all the cellulose they want – this is the main reason why termites are attracted to houses.

Sally Grenier answered:
FYI -- you're posting this on a public Q & A forum. Nobody here, or from Trulia can help. This site is jsut a big marketing database of listings from various sources.

Plus...if your house isn't for sale yet, it really doesn't matter. Hopefully you'll be hiring a REALTOR who will take professional photos of your home, and list it in the MLS. By doing so, it will eventually show up here on Trulia through a listing syndication service. What you're seeing now is likely just the public records info on your home. If you really want to change the can "claim" the home as the owner and make changes. ... more

If you are listed with a broker ask your agent; if you are a for sale by owner the post is not allowed; if and when you do list with a broker, ask your agent to post the listing, or consider any flat fee realty company that feeds into the site.... ... more

Trulia allows posting by Real Estate Agents only. Online you can find several FSBO websites including Zillow which allows both agents and owners to post.
