You CAN sell your home but my question for someone wanting to sell their house by themselves is "how do you know what your home is worth?." You can't go just by the town assessment or estimates by online real estate sites. There are too many factors. You might be pricing it too low and lose out or too high and it just sits there.We have access to the sold prices of comparable homes. If you put it on Craigslist beware of scams and watch out for just anybody coming into your home to "case the joint." What you would spend to hire a Realtor could save you a lot, both in money and aggravation.
