I have sold all three of my others homes "for sale by owner." Do you think I can do it again?

The advantages of using an agent are exposure to thousands of qualified buyers, which produces a better financial return and speed of sale. If you have done it 3 times I have no doubt you could do it again, clearly you are satisfied with previous results. I find most FSBO have no time limitations and are willing to keep home in market for long periods just to save a few thousand dollars, if that works for you then best wishes for a speedy sale.

If you've done it three times I don't see why you wouldn't be able to do it again. Good luck!

Yes probably in this market. But.... you may actually sell for a higher net if you list the property on the MLS and offer at least 2.5% to the Buyer's agent. The cash investors that are paying above market value have Realtors searching for properties for them and if you are not offering a commission to a buyer's agent they will bypass your property.

You can find a flat fee listing Realtor to put your property on the MLS. Then wait a week and if your property is a viable rental property (no backyard pool) then you should get mutlple cash offers above a price it can possibly appraise for.

Good Luck!

All the best,
