Make sure to disclose to buyers that you are licensed.
Even include your license number in the paperwork.
Make sure your broker knows what you are doing, too.

Yes an agent can sell their own home in MA.

I would check with your company contract to see what if any restrictions and fee's you and your broker owner have agreed on.

If you list it in mlspin, you should divulge that you have an interest in the home. Also I recommend that you also disclose on mls that it is a varuiable and or dual rate commission.

Of course, why not? It is their house right?

But do they have to disclose to the buying public that they are a licensed Realtor Yes...
And they should double check with their brokerage as each brokerage may have a different
rule for their agents selling their own homes but legally can they, yes!

Sure you can sell your house yourself. However, if you do it thru your office check with your broker as how your office handles that (your office may have a specific policy about that)

Yes, a Realtor is able to legally sell their own home provided they disclose they are a licensed Realtor. Our business is all about full disclosure, specially in a case like this where the Realtor has more RE knowledge than the average buyer.
