To pick up the phone and call a Realtor or to put that For Sale by owner sign in the front yard!
Lets look at the benefits of calling a Realtor.
1. Selling a property is more complicated than it looks. Realtors know the area , have the resources and
   the contacts to complete your sale quickly and smoothly.
   If you are relying on zillow and websites for your information, usually they are not correct and are using old data, it is important to price your home right for a quick sale. Sometimes you only get one chance to get it right!
2. Marketing Realtors have the marketing resources, MLS, personal websites, all internet  home websites etc .
   We  use professional photographers and offer lots of enhanced pictures on our websites.  We offer
   staging and advice on getting your home ready before it ever hits the market.  We offer Open Houses especially the first weekend your home hits the market.  Our team already has qualified buyers that we always direct our listings to.
3. Security  is a major concern when showing your home. We always use the electronic I-box that monitors each showing.  It collects the data of who is showing your home. We also use a  showing service that sets up the appointments with you and your agent.
4. Negotiating  It is always best to have representation that knows the market and can negotiate the best price for you.  Buyers most often than not would rather deal with a Realtor than with the home owner when it
comes to repairs and price.  A Realtor is not as emotionally involved with the home and can keep every negotiation  on a level of professionalism.
5. Getting you to the closing table  A Realtor is your personal guide throughout the listing, the sale, the negotiations, the inspections, the repairs if necessary, the appraisal and to the closing table where they are satisfied that they have maximized your needs
