I've had a fellow agent in my office list my homes for me. For many of the legal reasons listed below, and the fact that as a seller, I could not detach the way I really needed to. Another reason for listing with an agent is that when I meet with other sellers thinking of selling FSBO, I share with them the fact that as an agent, I won't even list my own house. If I, as a professional won't do it, what makes them think they can? Many sellers have been surprised to hear this, and in fact it has convinced several of them to list with me. Besides making for a good analogy to tell, it makes even more sense from a legal standpoint.
