Your time is valuable, and so is making certain you are making the correct seller disclosures to the buyer, etc. Correct pricing is so important to arriving ultimately at the best sales price.
Best of luck, and if you decide you would like professional expertise, I am volunteering to meet with you to see if my marketing plan will work for you.

Why would you want to try to sell your house without an agent? If you read many posts on Trulia, you have surely seen posts from For Sale By Owner sellers who are asking for advice *after* they have gotten themselves in trouble.
By exposing your house to more buyers via the Multiple Listing Service, and hiring a qualified agent to represent you, you will probably net higher sale proceeds, even after paying the brokerage fee, than you would by going it alone.

I know based on advice you have received here, you might reconsider and decide using a Realtor.The following tips can come in handy when deciding who will be your Realtor:
All the best
I suggest you interview a few agents before you make this important decision.
If you needed an operation, would you do it yourself or go to court unrepresented? Food for thought.
I don't believe Trulia or Zillow have a For Sale by Owner section. Selling your largest asset really deserves to sold by an expert and I would recommend using a full time Realtor. I have sold homes myself before I became a Realtor and I am am still amazed. I got it done.
There are safety concerns if you advertise the home for sale and you have to be there to show the home. Do you really know they can even qualify to buy the home or are even real buyers?
Next, how do you get it marketed? How do you know you are getting the right price for the home? You can do it yourself if you are really good on a computer and can follow up every hour or so. But your access to millions of potential buyers will be limited. Realtors have hundreds of websites they subscribe to to get your home out there and followup at all times via smart phones. Pricing is critical to getting the home sold. Too high and it won't get offers, too low and you leave thousands on the "table". Rarely do homes sell just because there is a sign in the yard.
Now comes a a big concern and that is the legal paperwork. How are you going to find out what you need and how to fill it out? If you do it wrong or omit something, you could be liable for a lawsuit and in some cases you are liable "forever". In a court of law, "I didn't know". is of no help. Remember you are playing with your largest asset and possibly your future assets. The average sale file is about 99 pages of documents!
Realtors are trained and licensed to look after your best wishes and your liabilities. Yes they charge a fee but it is probably the best money you will ever pay. It will be done right to protect you and your assets and they will endeavor to get you the best price. That is what we do for a living.
So, it is about your safety, marketing, legal requirements and liabilities, and getting the best price for you home. It is not an easy job and your Realtor will be doing a lot of work for you before, during, and after the sale.

The greatest compliment you can give is the referral of your friends and family. If you, or anyone you know, is thinking of buying or selling, please think of me and our TEAM.
My question is why would you not want to use a Realtor? Your home is likely your most valuable asset - not an area where you want to make a mistake.
I think most people considering selling on their own really don't understand everything that we do. I just got a call from someone two days ago that tried to go this route, are now in the middle of a transaction without an agent on either side, and the whole thing has deteriorated into a complete mess and is not likely to close. This is after both parties wasted almost two months thinking that they could handle it and now they will have to start over.
There are more "moving parts" to a transaction than people realize. For an introduction to just some of the things that we do, check out this article on the National Association of Realtor's website: http://www.realtor.com/Basics/AllAbout/Realtors/Why.asp?source=web
I'd appreciate it if you give me a call - I'd be happy to do a complimentary market analysis and go over the details of selling your home with you (no pressure, no hard sales pitch - I promise).
If you don't call me, please consider calling someone that is a licensed REALTOR before you decide to go it alone - at least you will have a good understanding of the process.

I don't think Trulia is the place to try to sell a home by yourself. If you want to give it a try, Craigslist is a good place to start, or even the local newspaper. Please be careful if you do that. Allowing strangers into your home and giving them a tour of your family, your possessions, and your lifestyle can be dangerous. Sad to say, but the world has gone mad - witness the happenings in Boston yesterday.
If you would like a comparative market analysis on your home so you have the correct price point to start at, let me know. I'm happy to provide that for you.
If you want all of the pitfalls of selling your own home, I can send that list, too! LOL It's not about paying commission. It is about protecting yourself and your family from crooks and thieves. It's about about having good legal advice as you go through the pounds of paperwork necessary to sell a home. It's about finding qualified buyers. It's about getting the highest and best price for your home.
If you want that comparative market analysis with or without the pitfall list, let me know!
Best of luck!
No, Trulia as this time does not allow FSBO (For Sale By Owner). You may want to check out Zillow.com they do.
Course there will be no shortgage of agents asking for your business. You may want to look at their recommendations on here and give a couple a call to see what they charge and etc. You have options.
Just in the past 6 months, Tucson has become a "Sellers market", we were named as the #1 place to buy from Forbes last year and things have really picked up.
Wish you the best of luck.

Trulia is not setup for this. There are other platforms that cater to this. I would love the opportunity to tell you how hiring a Realtor like myself will save you more than the commission you will pay. I guarantee this to all my clients. Please give me a call or shoot me an email today!
