a) Are you trying to lease your house yourself? If so be extremely careful you can be sued by potential tenants that know all kinds of "tips and tricks of the trade" I have handled 5 worked with 5 clients over the past 6 weeks who leased their home got sued in less than 30 days from the tenants. HOWEVER I can't assit these landlords for they did not have a realtor reprsention.
b) Realtor listing your home you fall under their errors & ommission insurance policy for protection
c) Realtor can post on MLS most search engine for leasing properties, and we qualify the potential tenant.
d) There are 25 GREAT website we post listings to however you have to continually stay on top of the postings.
I DON'T mean to scare you just concerned when general public want to do a FSOB, purchase direct from a buyer, or lease a property we receive soooooo many crying stories off these situations.
