There is absolutely nothing complex in selling your house yourself and there are NO HORROR stories neither, Realtors say that to keep their business.
The major problem you will encounter is that 95 % of agents will simply BOYCOTT your listing so you will end up with a lower price and a longer time: all this because buyers blindly trust their agents and these guys guide them wherever they want.
In this business your customer are RE Agents, not the buyer.

Hi Dan,

The value of your home is easily established, with reasonable certainty, by having a Realtor visit your home in person.

There is no substitute for an onsite inspection. Any specialty work such as 3 piece crown molding, granite counters, new hardwood floors, new kitchens or baths, new siding or decks etc. can be added to your bottom line. These upgrades are not seen by online search engines used by companies who offer a cyber-analysis of value. These are based in part on public records, not actual property specific information.

Your personalization’s might just make your home the new comparable listing yardstick that changes the neighborhoods public data. Show us!
