Are you planning to list on the MLS? If so your property will be listed on Trulia as well as Zillow and other real estate sites.
I'm guessing that the reason you are thinking of selling on your own is because you want to avoid a realtor's fee. But most buyers will have a buyer agent, and will expect you to compensate that buyer agent between 2 and 2.5% of the purchase price. Further, buyers who are looking to purchase a home sold by owners believe they will save the cost of the listing agent's commission and will make an offer accordingly. Finally, your realtor will give you much more exposure than you can get on your own. For example, through the Keller Williams Listing Service your listing will be exposed to hundreds of web sites. I will set up a web site for your property. As a member of Keller Williams Global Property Service I can also post your listing on an international site that will translate it into 17 languages. Given the large number of foreign buyers in the Cambridge market, that will give you a distinct advantage.
If you would like to talk with me about what I can do for you--a no-strings conversation--please call or email me. If you decide to go it alone, I wish you the best of luck.
