List it yourself The realtors dont want to spend the time or the money showing it Some have friends who are investors looking for a fast deal, Some are going to buy it for themselves and give themselves a commission ( after all they wrote the contract) I sold homes of my own with 4 sale by owner. The realtors will tell the buyer you really dont want that home it's too high.. .... wait you will get it lower after I make a deal with his realtor. The statement I hae is be realistic, Or you have to agree with me or I you are unfair to the buyer,,,,,Let me tell you I am going through this now . I decided maybe I was wrong so I hired a realtor. I am ready to fire them when they told me give buyers assist which means less profit for me. You can sell , get an attorney to do the settlement and save 25,000-40,000 depending on the price. The attorney charges a flat fee at settlement and could range from 600 -2000. Your going to need an attorney once the contract is made to make sure you are protected before you sign anyway.
The realtors work for themselves not for you. They rather make less fast and not more the old fashion way by earning it. The market excuse is called PANIC SALE and that is against the law.
