In the current "lenders market", if you do not need to sell, I suggest not placing the home on the market. Most homes, even custom built, are selling below owners expectations and many are selling below twice the State Equalized Value.
If you are still considering selling, real estate professionals will ask you for your home's address. They will then need to come to the property to view the floorplan and condition of the home. I would suggest having at least 3 real estate professionals submit their range of values and marketing plan (written) for your property and choosing the one with the best marketing plan.
If you cannot find some local agents I can refer you to some.
If you use a real estate agent negotiate the commission! They may say the won't, but do not deal with a real estate person that won't. They are usually at ~7%. Tell them you'll give them 4% if they sell within 60 days and 3% after that. They will all tell you how hard they work, but trust me I know... most sit around and wait for the phone to ring. This way you give them goals to reach.
PS just realized you had the extra storage so that will be a plus!
Are you still thinking about selling your property on M-119? Considering the drop in mortgage rates as of yesterday, I expect that will encourage Buyers to get out and take advantage of the current rates; which Is a great reason to put your property on the market now. I specialize in the residential, vacation and second-home market. If you are interested, please give me a call at: 231-881-9989 or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

In Harbor Springs we have seen a slight leveling off of home values, however we have seen a slight increase in activity over last year.
