Q: How does publishing my listing on Zillow help me sell my home by owner?

A: By choosing a listing with ForSaleByOwner.com, your home listing will be seen by Zillow, Trulia and ForSaleByOwner.com visitors who are looking for homes in your neighborhood.

The Zillow and Trulia Network is visited by over 90 million Internet users monthly, which translates to roughly 3 million visitors daily. The Zillow and Trulia Real Estate Network is the largest real estate destination online, attracting nearly one third of all real estate traffic.

Q: Does being included on the Zillow and Trulia Real Estate Network mean that I don’t need Realtor.com and MLS listings?

A: For maximum exposure to the greatest number of potential buyers, you will want to ensure that your listing is seen on all the real estate supersites – Realtor.com, as well as and your local MLS.

Q: When will my listing on the Zillow and Trulia Real Estate Network expire?

A: All ForSaleByOwner.com listings receive a standard listing on Zillow.com and Trulia until the account is cancelled.

Q: What if the ‘Zestimate’ is not the same as my asking price?

A: Both Zillow’s ‘Zestimate’ and the Home Value Estimator offered by ForSaleByOwner.com are computer-generated valuations (using different methodologies). All computer-generated reports are a good place to start researching the market value of your home, but a formal appraisal is the only measure of market value that is accepted by mortgage lenders. In the event that you think some of the information on your “Zestimate” is incorrect, you can go here to update the information Zillow has on file. A formal appraisal always trumps computer-generated value estimates from all sources.
