I’m Harvey James, thanks for stopping by my website. My wife and I thought it would be easy to sell our house without the help of a realtor. We live in an affluent residential area where homes sell quickly. Our house is in excellent condition inside and out, so of course it would be easy to sell, right? Wrong! We found that there’s nothing simple about selling your own home. We put a sign out front and did a bit of advertising. Five months later we still had our house on the market and had only had one very low offer. My wife suggested we contract with a broker, so we decided to give it a try. Three weeks after the agent listed our home, we had accepted an offer and were in escrow. There are many reasons to list with a realtor. I hope you benefit from my story.
