You can absolutely list your own home. You can use zillow.com, trulia.com and fsbo.com to promote it. Most people chose not to list their homes themselves because during the sale process they want assistance with marketing/promotion and during the contract portion they want assistance with legalities and negotiation. Best of luck!
You can list your home "for sale by owner" on my site. Click on the following link;
If you have questions about the process or about the Denver real esate market in general, I will be glad to answer you free of charge and for no obligation.
For the most exposure you will need to list on the MLS to get on realtor.com, but there are other ways to get on that website and even on Trulia.com. Realtors are working with lots of buyers, so offer them a competitive commission if you list on the local MLS.
Best of luck selling!
You do not have to be a Realtor to list a home for sale (hence the term FSBO). However, I am one of many Realtors that use Trulia to market properties for sale, and I would welcome the opportunity to speak to you about listing your home.
One reason why you would consider using a Realtor instead of listing the home For Sale By Owner, is that Realtors will not only place your home on Trulia but also enter the home in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), as well as dozens of other real estate related websites.
And just like you would use a professional to handle any other major events in your life, you should rely on a Realtor to guide you through the home selling process. In fact, a vast majority of FSBOs eventually turn to a Realtor after many moths of frustration on their own.
Give me a call so we can discuss your situation in more detail.
