Hi Colleen,

As the others have answered, yes, you can list your home for sale by owner. The difficulties you may encounter are:

Answering and scheduling the showings
Counter offering when you recieve an offer from a potential buyer.
Disclosing- What documents do I provide the buyer.
negotiating "request for repair" items
Time frames; how do you handle the buyers lagging on obtaining their financing and closing on time?

Colleen these are just a few examples of what to expect to encounter when selling by owner.  A great agent will foresee these issues and obstacles going in and be there to guide and protect you.

Yes defiantly you can list your home. Just register Here and fill appropriate property information. You need a license number.

YES you can list your home For Sale By OWNER! I do NOT suggest you do this however. There is alot of liability you are putting on your self without representation of a licensed Realtor. Buyers love to sue sellers and if the sellers do not know the correct documents to use in the sale, they will be in jepardy! Also, For Sale by Owners do not have the footrpint needed to market to the thousnads of  active Buyers agents that can show and sell your home.If you want to save money on commissions you will loose money by doing it yourself as a  for sale by owner and  so, BTW, DO  hire a Realtor.

Der Colleen:

Yes, Zillow permits you to list your home by owner. However, to have it seen by the most buyers the home should be on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Homes that are on the MLS are usuallly populated on all of the major real estate search engines locally and nationally.

The MLS will bring you more qualified buyers that can pay top dollar. The for sale by owner homes tend to bring bargain hunters or those that are looking for seller assistance in financing.
