The specific Trulia question has been addressed below.
If you are firm in your desire to sell on your own (FSBO) then there are many FSBO oriented sites that can assist you.
Please remember that many FSBOs ultimately turn to a Realtor after many frustrating weeks/months on their own.
It takes many years to develop a brand and name on the Internet so that you are on the top pages of Google for specific search terms such as Bath Beach Real Estate for Sale etc. Firms such as Fillmore and others have spent large sums of money in technology and marketing to ensure that buyers see your home first.
Another factor to consider is that competent Realtors will pre-qualify their buyers so not to waste time with "lookers" it is much more difficult for FSBOs to do this.
Best of luck with your home sale.

If you want to place an ad for your home being for sale on Trulia, you have two options. In order to put it on Trulia as an active listing you would have to have a licensed real estate agent do that for you. Homeowners cannot place "house for sale" ads on Trulia, only agents can do that. The second option you have would be to create a "blog" about your house being for sale on Trulia. However, this will not be seen by as many people because consumers looking to purchase homes usually do not search the blog section of Trulia.
If you decide you would like to have an agent help you, I would love to apply for that position. My office is located right in the area and I have been selling condos in the area for over 18 years full time. I have literally sold hundreds of condos over the years.
If I can be of further assistance please let me know and good luck!
