You should know that selling your home without professional representation may not be in your best interest. If you can sell it on your own, a recent survey shows that 5% of the time you'll sell to someone you know, 5% to someone you do not know, and 85% of the time you will list the home for sale with a Realtor.
My suggestion is to interview three Realtors, compare their proposals, then if your Plan A does not work, you can swing right into plan B.
You should also know that homes sold without professional representation sell for about 16% less than those sold by Realtors. And that makes sense, when you are only dealing with 10% of the buyers' market. Does it make sense to exclude 90% of the buyers?
The buyer first sees the home they buy with a Realtor 90% of the time. So your market is really Realtors.
Good luck. If you would like me to refer you a Realtor that you can interview, I would be happy to serve you. Just contact me via my Trulia profile.
There are some FSBO websites that you may investigate such as ForSaleByOwner.com, but since we are experiencing a tough sellers market it will be much more advantageous for you to have an experienced Real Estate professional working for you at this time!
