There are several ways to sell a home, but selling quickly and at the optimum price involves certain steps. You can either sell on your own or hire a real estate agent to oversee the transaction from start to finish. Hiring a Professional Realtor will require less work on your part, but usually requires you to pay a commission between 2 percent and 5 percent. Selling your home "For Sale by Owner," or FSBO, is free, but pricing, marketing and negotiating responsibilities fall on you, the seller.
Pick the Right Professional
Selecting a listing agent is a process in and of itself. Past performance is a good indicator of how well an agent will work for you, so do your research and interview more than one before signing a listing agreement.
