info about competing properties and those sold while your listing is on the market, and the successful marketing and advertising of a Real Estate Brokerage the answer is YES
If you want to try it on your own, you can, but you may not be as successful in getting your home
sold, or you may not prepare it well enough for sale, or price it right within your market, and furthermore when it comes to negotiating the price and terms once you get an offer, your emotions, as this is not just a house to you but YOUR HOME will get in the way of reasonable and successful negotiations, but remember your home is a commodity to others...
And always a home is worth only what a ready and willing and approved buyer is ready and willing to pay, not what the seller wants for it...

I never force my buyers to sign a contract. But signing a contract for listing your house for sale is actually a protection on both ends. Don't be afraid of signing a contract. You can always discuss with your agent about your concerns and have them laid out in the contract. Contract can protect you!
Also, if your agent is confident and reasonable, he/she will allow you to terminate the contract if you don't think he/she can best help you.
Hope this helps...
