That's a tough question - I've read soe of the answeres from my colleagues and your repsonses.
If you are committed to selling your own homw without the use of an agent, then that's what you're going to do. I'd google everything you can find about it and try those things - if they work and you sell, then your goal's accomplished.
Agents, like any other professino can rock or be slimeballs - just a fact. If you try everything you kno wand your hoe doesn't sell, then I'd post on here that you're looking for an agent to help you sell your home - when they respond and they will, then check their reviews on Trulia, ask for references and again. google everything you can find about being a frist time home seller so nobody can take advantage of you.
Best of luck with getting your hoe sold
