Hello Vince,

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.

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 most money possible for your home.

Best of luck!

Well before foreclosed homes are actually listed, they are placed with an agent/broker who has a relationship with that bank or asset company who is handling that property.

Usually before a sign goes up in the yard, there will be a piece of paper posted in a window -- there should be a phone number to call on that piece of paper. This is how it works in the Birmingham market -- I worked for a local office with a lot of REO inventory. I hope my comments help. ... more
