This is been a common question since the real estate markets across the country have been doing fairly well. Should homeowners try and sell the home themselves in a hot market? It may be very tempting to save a few thousand bucks by selling a home yourself, especially if you know that homes in your neighborhood are selling fairly quickly. What are the pros and cons to selling a home by owner? Should you go with a discount broker?
Anyone can sell a home themselves. There are no rules or regulations against it. The key is the stress and sometimes confusion with legal jargon that goes along with a real estate sale and, you may find yourself dealing with a real estate agent in any case if the buyer brings an agent. So are there really any drawbacks to selling a home yourself?
