Just as an fyi to fellow brokers/agents answering questions here assisting home buyers & sellers, be aware of links that are sometimes posted so you do not get a virus or information taken from your pc. Click on links that you trust. I've had this happen to me before with one of those tinyurl links. See date of original question here ... more

Your profile says you are a buyer, so perhaps we are confused. If you have a home with a business opportunity to sell, you must list it with an agent for it to appear on Trulia. Currently Trulia does not offer FSBO listings. ... more

So, just so I am clear, your thought is that if you can find a Realtor who will work for below market compensation, then you will net the most (or lose the least) when you sell, is that correct?

Think about it.

A Realtor that will agree to work at a the bat, as a preliminary point of asking "why you should hire me?" well, you might want to interview a couple of Realtors and compare.

Just looking at the link below, your market appears to be declining. So, just my humble opinion, but what if you are wrong with your assessment of market value. Most owners think their homes are worth more than they are, and in a declining market, the goes double. BTW, an appraisal is not the same as a market analysis (it depends on the purpose of the appraisal. If the market is headed down, which it appears to be, then an appraisal , which is based on closed sales, lags the market conditions and overstates the value).

Good luck.
