You should get a comparative market analysis (CMA) from a local realtor. They'll know the market best and be able to tell you if you can break even or you'll lose money when you sell.

Read your listing contract. Once you listed it, going around the agent to avoid commission is generally not permitted. In fact, most listing agreements have a protected period of up to 6 months that you may be obligated to. Without reviewing your agreement, no one can know, so start there. ... more

I operate a Credit Repair Nerds, we repair and most importantly restore people's credit in 2 - 6 months. I would have loved to work with you during that time. If you know of anyone who needs to be restored and helped, please give them my info. I also do budgeting with my clients so they are educated about how credit works!

Take care! Everyone should live the American Dream!

Hello Mike, your first step would be to have a consult with a Realtor to discuss your options. Once you have secured an agent; she will ensure you that not only is your home listed for sale on Trulia but also over 400 other websites.

Email or call to arrange a time that's best for you to discuss.

I hope that by now you may have sold your home in Grandview. If not, I'm very sorry you are not getting the activity you had hoped for. We are still seeing plenty of buyers in this market. The 3 biggest things that sells homes are Condition, Location, and Price. You're in a wonderful location. Take some time to review who your competition is and how your homes compares to them by means of condition and price. ... more

Don’t rely on the listing that your agent has put online to sell your house. Use other online venues to help sell your house. Put an ad on craigslist, use sites like Promote the house through social media like Facebook Google Plus, Pinterest and Twitter

Real estate investors are an effective means of selling property quickly. You can sell them your home without having to pay real estate commissions.

Carolyn Liddell answered:
It's not unusual for people to have 2nd thoughts about their decisions. However, at one time you thought is was a good idea to sell your home so reflect on why you wanted to sell in the 1st place, and what are your current concerns. Be sure you can articulate your concerns about the market conditions relative to your selling. Do you believe the market conditions which concern you will improve or increase in the future? Then discuss these with your agent, and perhaps the broker. There may be other answers to your concerns rather than terminating the contract.

The listing agreement is a legal contract which may or may not allow for termination before the end of the term. Some agents and brokerages will permit it, others not. During the initial period of the listing agreement the agent spends significant time and perhaps money establishing the marketing plan. You may offer to reimburse the agent and brokerage for their time and costs. Best Wishes.

I am so sorry to hear about your plumbing and flooding problems! It sounds like a short sale will be your best answer in this circumstance. It will affect your credit, but it is one way to walk away from a situation such as this without seriously damaging your credit the way a foreclosure can. You will definitely want an agent who has experience in short sales to help you with this transaction.

I am experienced in short sales and I would be more than happy to set up a free and confidential consultation.

Hope you have a great day!

You are a Real Estate Pro.
Why are you posting this?
If it did not make financial sense to use professional representation, there would be no Realtors.
All homes are sold by owners. Some owners elect to sell without professional representation.
Some peopel defend themselves in court. Some defend themselves in front of the IRS...
it is a free country.
