If your property is sold by you, the home owner, and not by a real estate agent, you reach about 10% of people that are looking for homes to purchase. On the other hand, once you list it with a licensed real estate professional, every agent in Multiple Listing Services of Long Island, which is about 12,000 agents, you get people that are not active on the internet or the ones that are too busy, and work with agents for all their real estate needs. An agent of your own could list the property for you at a little higher price, get commission and you will still get what you are looking for. MINUS the hassle of calls, showings, running around, and most of all, TIME.
But that's up to you.
