Trulia does not post or edit anything. Who ever posted your listing, can easily log on and edit the ad and the pictures.

You list our home with completely wrong information, though I have updated, you've never updated your site. The listing you provide is off by a VERY wide margin and you list the value…

I would not trust Trulia, Zillow, or any financial institution who uses them for any transaction. Our home is 2,604 sq ft, confirmed by two appraisals, with 4 baths and 5 bedrooms. Both Trulia and Zillow have it listed as 2,258 sq ft with 3 baths and 4 bedrooms. I have entered the "owners data" but it never changes the estimate of value. Really just a joke and can't be taken as a serious measure of the value of your home. Hire an appraiser and don't let any bank use this site or others to determine the value of your home. ... more

Realistically speaking, the answer is no. You'll have to hire a Realtor as a listing agent for your home. Even a licensed real estate agent who is not a Realtor cannot get your home listed in the MLS.

Technically speaking, the answer is yes. You can list your own home in the MLS if you first become a licensed real estate agent and then join a brokerage firm and your local Board of Realtors. I've known several folks to handle it just that way -- by first becoming a Realtor, then listing and selling their own home, then their parents' home, then their neighbor's home -- until they built up their client base to the point they stayed in the business.

If you prefer to continue selling your home FSBO, there are several FSBO magazines and websites where you can advertise.

Best of luck to you in selling your home.

Depending on your goals in this transaction you could actually owner finance the home. Now to do a transaction such as this you need to have an attorney draw up all the documents. You can make the term short term with a balloon payment so that they will refinance the home shortly down the road. I would structure the deal so that you hold onto the deed though. That way if down the road something goes wrong it will not be a long drawn out process for you to take possession of the home since you technically already still have it. ... more

I am sorry for your experience(There's still good agents out there). I agree with Kieth and would make a complaint to your local board of REALTORS. Unfortunatly it wasn't in writing. ... more
