Perhaps the blogs below can help.

Thinking about doing a FSBO? he did. read and learn.

Looking for a realtor (as fsbo lost its appeal)? look below for help.

You can't post FSBO here yet. You could write a blog about it and hope someone sees it. That is all. Try http://www.zillow.com I think they allow fsbo but could be wrong.

Only licensed real estate professional can list homes on Trulia.

Are you having to short sale? If so, then a bank will pick up the closing costs. Get yourself a good agent. If you don't have to short sale, CONGRADULATION! Local papers and online services. Most buyers will take an extra 6% off a price only because there is no agent involved. If you are willing to cooperate with agents... offer them 4% commission! This will give them an extra incentive to sell yours rather than someone only offering 3%.

My suggesion is to give youself a brief period to try on your end, and be sure to cooperate with agents. Exposure matters greatly, you can't reach Trulia, but it you do list on the MLS you will get here.

If you succeed on your own, great! If not, then hire an agent to help you.

Unfortunately, Trulia does not allow FSBO posts, you can however try blogging about your property--if you do have an agent he/she can post it for you.

No, trulia does not take FSBO listings. You can list your home with a discount brokerage that uses the MLS and your listing will probably end up on Trulia. Check with the brokerage before you pay if that is important to you.
