The virtue of self-reliance is as American as baseball and apple pie--except if you are trying to sell your own home. Here such a "virtue" can cost you time, effort, and possibly money.
Because the overwhelming majority of homes that sell are listed with a real estate agent, you will be going against significant odds if you decide to sell your own home. The experience of a real estate professional may get you a better price and help you to avoid all the "little" things that can go wrong in a real estate transaction.
The desire to "save" the commission on a property is the reason most people decide not to work with a real estate agent. Prospective buyers who look for properties that are "For Sale By Owner" (FSBOs) are also wanting to avoid the commission--and to get a less-than-market-value deal. However, nothing is saved in the majority of FSBOs. Listing your home with a real estate professional can spare you the inconvenience of showing your home and save you the time you would spend talking to buyers who could not qualify for a loan.
