Selling a home is not rocket science, and saving 6% in otherwise forfeited equity for taking care of a few simple tasks of opening the door for inspections does not require some special skill.
Simply go to Office Depot or Staples and get a Real Estate Sales Contract, then contact a title attorney who will review and handle everything.
If consumers only realized how simple selling real esate can be there would be a lot more FSBO saving Millions if not Billions in real esate commissions. But they've been trained to go with the flow out of fear of something they don't need to be fearfull of and realize this after they see how easy it really is.
However, if you would like a real estate agent to write the contract and represent you, I believe you should be able to have this done for about $500 to $800. Some may even do it for less.
If you would like assistance in preparation of contracts, inspections, association approval appraisal (if required), selecting a closing agent, etc. please feel free to give me a call at your convenience. So much depends on the complexity of the transaction but there are steps that need to be followed to ensure the transaction proceeds smoothly to the closing table.
The very best of luck to you and I hope this information is helpful but if you need anything additional please do not hesitate to give me a call.
Always at Your Service,

Why not just negotiate with a local agent to coordinate the transaction so you don't make an expensive mistake. Have the fee reflect that the broker didn't need to market the property or find a buyer.
