Selling a home is not rocket science. Sticking a for sale sign in the yard is a great way to let your neighbor know your selling. That's a small audience . Be prepared to wait!! But
you could get lucky. That's one part and just the beginning of selling a property.
I would never think of going to court without a attorney or selling a home without representation. There are two many variables and to much at stake to take a chance.
One of the first and most important things to remember is to do your research and price your home right in the right market. Understanding the climate and the environment that you are selling in is invaluable.
I don't know what State you live in but here in South Florida real estate is HOT!!!
A attorney may handle the paperwork but not bring you a qualified buyer. A sign in your front yard can bring in limited prospects and some may just e nosy and not even qualified. Then you have to know how to negotiate to get the best deal you can. This takes experience.
You can figure to spend much time marketing, promoting, showing, staging, researching and learning that can cost big bucks.
The last and final thing to remember is buyers will not pay you the going rate since they know you are not paying a Realtor commission THEY want that discount. FSBOS sell over 20%below market value.
With all that being said I wish you the best. You may indeed have the skills and time necessary to get it done yourself.
Is it worth it in the end?
