It is a very tough time to sell, a lot of people have a misconception of "Selling By Owner" in this market. What I have experienced, is many FSBO try to sell on their own to save the commission, when in turn if you list with a Realtor and work as a team, you will sell your home at a higher price and a lot quicker. When I go for a listing appointment one of the first things I typically tell my sellers that the commission should be the last thing to worry about. The most important things to do in order to sell your home in this market is, price your home right, staging your home, getting the most marketing and the most important thing is finding a Realtor that you can work well with and be a team!! I would love to touch base with you and see if we can work together as a team to get your home sold. Have a great day and I hope to hear from you soon.
Thank you,

Good Afternoon Karen,

You are aboutto get swamped with offers to list, dont jump on the first person, or the biggest company. talk to a couple of different people, make sure you are comfortable in how they present themselves. Ask them if they have experience with homes like yours and in your area. ask how they will market and where and how often they will advertise, make sure they split theor commission 50/50 with buyer agents and make sure they do assisted showings. make sure you tell them what you expect and what they say is inline with your thoughts. good luck

Be prepared. You just waved a flag and watch how popular you become now with Realtors. You'll even get Realtors from out of State trying to get you to let them refer someone to you.

Unfortunately you have to be a licensed Real Estate Agent in order to be able to advertise on Trulia. Becareful because many Realtors don't even advertise here.
