Hello all —

Has anyone on this list had experience posting their For Sale By Owner (FSBO) 
homes to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) via  This service feeds 
into TRULIA, ZILLOW?  Other services feed into REDFIN and similar internet 
email notification lists.

I’m particularly interested in how you talked about Cohousing - was there 
enough text when posting your listing to describe cohousing in addition to the 
listing?  Services allow enough photos that I think you can easily use a few to 
show the CH.  But I’m wanting to be sure there’s enough room to provide details 
about community living in cohousing.

And … what has been your experience in terms of responses from MLS?  Is this a 
good source of prospective buyers for you?  Have you made sales?  Have the 
people who have bought through an MLS, Trulia, ,Zillow, Redfin etc. integrated 
into your community and engaged in your various activities including workshare, 
dinners, etc.?

Thanks for any insights, suggestions, critiques you can share.
