Emotion is the biggest problem. I have bought and sold myself therefore pocketing the money and getting the best profit I can. Buying a house I would sometimes prefer and agent. Selling a house I have sweat equity in, I'm doing it myself. BUT! I have held a real estate lic. in Florida before and taken the classes. You have to know the property laws in the state you are in. You have to educate yourself or get an agent. Always use a lawyer on the paperwork when selling or buying yourself and be real when it comes to what the market value of your property is really worth. When in real estate this was one of the biggest problems I would sometimes have with sellers. You have to step back and think money, location, location, location is and always be the biggest factor. You might love your home and think it's worth a million dollars but it is only going to be worth what a buyer or seller is willing or able to pay. Disconnect your emotions from your property. Don't get offended by a low offer. I can do this but my husband can not. I have come to understand that it is not possible for most people. I can drag him through my process but what a pain in the ass that is. If you can't take the heat DON'T do it yourself. You may have your property sold get to closing and everything falls apart. It happens. Move past the emotions. (my 5 cent worth advice) :) ... more

I respectfully suggest the advise of a realtor of your choice. Selling a house takes more than picking the right day. Selling your property means time, effort and money. The right pricing, the several financing options the buyer has, staging the property, arranging meetings and negotiating with prospective buyers, publicizing the home to prospective buyers and following up on home inspections (among several other things) could make the difference between success and failure in closing a sale. I am not trying to discourage you from selling the house yourself. I am only helping you consider the many factors involved in the selling process in today's market. With a lot of sellers and limited buyers, the competition is tough.

Make the complex selling-buying transaction process an easy one. Consider using the services of a real estate licensed professional.
