Both Trulia and Zillow are set up to post only agent listings. Making a flyer and posting it on Craigslist is probably your best option, but Craigslist can get a little weird sometimes, so beware.
Honestly, you are better off with an agent. I know selling a house looks like it should be easy, but that isn't reality. Done right, it involves market knowledge, marketing, promotion, knowing your way around a purchase agreement, coordinating showings & inspections, and just being available to answer questions that come through emails, phone calls and websites like this one. Having an agent will bring many more benefits than problems if you find the right kind of agent.
Here's a few of the benefits from a Seller's point of view...
- They have access to market information that can help you to price your home accurately so that your are not either losing money, or sitting on the market because it's overpriced.
- Agents have marketing power through the internet, but also through networking, local MLS meetings, and their sphere of influence through past clients
- They provide a layer of legal protection against being sued by a buyer. They do this by having you complete all the required disclosures, makgin sure all terms of the sale are in writing and clearly understood, and by moving the transaction along within the timelines of the purchase agreement
- They have good advise on what makes a strong offer that is likely to close escrow with the fewest problems
- They are your front man in talking to buyers and other agents.
Also, the great majority of buyers, something like 90-some percent, access a home they are interested in through a real estate agent. So, you're going to be dealing with one anyway, just not one acting in your interests because they are the buyer's agent.
It sounds like we've closed ranks, I know, but in fact what an agent does to bring a sale about is one of the best kept secrets of any industry. It is a lot of work and agents have to wear a lot of hats.
