The question I would pose is this:
Do you want to advertise your home, or sell it?
There are many places to advertise your home As a owner selling without professional representation, forsaleowner.com, owners.com, fizber.com are all great places. You can also find a flat fee MLS entry only broker that will list your home in the MLS. You pay the buyer's agent their percentage, then you save a couple of percentage points WHEN and IF you sell.
You should be aware of a few facts that might help you shape your plans:
1. Buyers use a Realtor 90% of the time. Why? Because the buyer does not pay anything. They get an expert negotiator, someone who knows the neighborhood, for free. And what is a buyer's most precious commodity? Time.
2. Owners selling without professional representation sell to someone they know 5% of the time, someone they don't know 5% of the time, and list with a Realtor 86% of the time. Not surprising, when only dealing with 10% of the market homes sold by owners without professional representation sell on average for 15% less than those sold by Realtors.
Think about it. If a buyer can get a Realtor to do all the work for free, why would a buyer not use a Realtor? Answer - because they think they can get a better deal than a Realtor can. So is it any wonder that homes sold by owners without professional representation sell for less on average?
So, what is your best move? MLS entry only broker? Could be, but I did a survey of limited service and MLS Entry only Brokers in my MLS
1. The fail to sell 33% more often
2. They sell, on average, for about 2.2% less the Full Service
3. They take longer to sell.
So, it would not surprise you to know that a REaltor that knows their job can help you net more at closing. I suggest that you interview three Realtors. Ask them for an Estimate of Seller's Net Proceeds.
Then you run the numbers and make the call.
You may be able to sell on your own. GREAT
If not, you have a plan B.
