Listing a home online through Trulia and Zillow should be done through a realtor. It will benefit the sale of your property greatly because a real estate agent is able to prepare the photos and specific details of the house much better than a homeowner.

An experienced realtor has been through this process many times and is also able to get maximum exposure out of these websites as well as provide you with access to the local MLS. The multiple listing services website is an online portal exclusive to realtors that allows a home to be listed with exposure to a real estate agent network that will bring credible buyers to the table.

It is possible to sell your home on your own through Zillow or Trulia. I would suggest the advantages and experience that a realtor can bring you to help with selling your house online.

I just viewed your listing and your name does say "Listing Agent." The other 3 agents are listed as "Premier Agent" - not "Listing Agent". "Premier Agent" means those agents pay monthly advertising fees to Trulia, Zillow, etc. to have their pretty faces and name plastered on listings so they can get leads from consumers. It's just another method of paying for leads.

As a former agent, what should concern you is when consumers call these agents, they THINK they are calling the listing agent when they are not. It happened to me many times. I paid Zillow to be a "Premier Agent" and buyers would call me thinking I was the listing agent and I wasn't. I did explain to buyers that I am advertising on Zillow but I'm not the listing agent. I told them I can represent them as a buyers agent. He question is whether other agents will do the same OR when a buyer calls, will they lie and tell them they are the listing agent.

Kathy Burgreen answered:
What you should do is test your listing. Call one of the agents that appears on your listing (they pay Trulia monthly advertising fees to hopefully get leads). Pretend you are a buyer asking about your condo. What does the agent tell you? If you don't like the answer, imagine other buyers calling these agents. ... more

I added some data and pictures for my home (6400 N.E. 19th Avenue, Ft Lauderdale, FL 33308) last Friday, but I don't see the listing. How can I verify that the update was successful?

To post your home for sale by owner on Trulia, click the link below and select Submit listings for sale.

You will be redirected to our partner site, Zillow. Once you activate your listing on Zillow, it will appear on Trulia within 24 hours.

Thank you for using Trulia!

Trulia does not accept FSBO listings, you would have to list with a real estate agent for direct access to Trulia for a listing. Try Zillow.

The buyer can ask whatever they like, reasonable or not. Please look at the big picture and see if you don't replace the water heater will this be a deal breaker. I would offer them a credit based on the old water heater and then they can buy what they want once they own the house.
Feel free to call me at 954-383-0090
Good luck!

Bob Robinson answered:
Hi Dtb29, I suggest you interview at least 3 local Realtors. After that, see who you feel more comfortable with and answered ALL your questions. Ask if they are familiar with your neighborhood, what experience do they have, are they just listing your property and will service by themselves or a team, how many listings do they have or can handle, do they answer the phone when you call them or do you always have to leave a message.

My suggestions would be to hire one Realtor to do the job who has less than 5 current listings, as who can honestly handle/focus and service more than that. Again, someone who will answer your call 98% of the time when you need them. Selling your home can be stressful, find someone who makes you feel at ease. Are you looking to buy in the area?

If you are still looking for a Realtor, I would like a chance to meet with you and hopefully get hired by you. Put me to work as I live in Wilton Manors and know zip code 33309.

My best- Bob Robinson

Hi... great question!! Find a Realtor that you are comfortable with, and will sit with you and go through the comparisons and reports. Anyone can send you a CMA report, that's a lazy Agent. Go with someone who will sit with you and give you quality time and answer all your questions, like myself. Please contact me if I can assist you any further. My best- Bob Robinson ... more

Myersjulie31 answered:
Usually, it is up to the seller to get this taken care of. However, this is not always the case, and it may be up to the buyer. I think that it is a good idea for both to get an inspection; then they can both make sure that it is in the right condition and that everything is as it should be. ... more

Dan Tabit answered:
Probably not, but read your lease and then read the Landlord Tenant Law for WI. If you can't the new landlord shouldn't be able to change other terms of the lease either, so you may just have to stick it out at the same rent, under the same terms until the lease expires. ... more

I do not see the benefit of the entire city stats for a regular consumer. If you are interested in a particular area, or building, then give me a call. We are dealing with a very divese and "uneven" market to rely on general statistics for any practical purposes. ... more
