Do I Really Need a Realtor to Sell My House?

You decide.  Here are 15 specific tasks that must be done in order to sell a home in the least amount of time, and at the highest possible price.

  1. Research the local real estate market to determine the asking price
  2. Identify the key selling points
  3. Obtain a property disclosure form
  4. Take pictures of your home
  5. Add your home to the MLS
  6. Add your home to, Zillow, Trulia, and many others
  7. Blog about your home
  8. Post your home on all social media platforms
  9. Email blast your home details to a massive database of potential buyers and other realtors
  10. Run a Google Pay-Per-Click Ad about your home
  11. Send out mailers about your home
  12. Run newspaper/magazine Ads about your home
  13. Place a “For Sale” sign in your yard
  14. Put a lockbox/Supra on your door
  15. Coordinate visits / showings with buyers
  16. Make sure buyers have financing (e.g., pre-approval)
  17. Hold an open houses, if warranted
  18. Present offers from buyers
  19. Negotiate with buyers
  20. Handle the closing / settlement

Again, we think these are just the minimum responsibilities to ensure the most successful transaction possible.  If you can do all of these and possibly more on your own, by all means go for it.  If you don’t have the time or knowledge to complete these tasks, however, your home might sit on the market for longer than necessary and you might leave a lot of money on the table.
