The most important thing you can do is work with a professional that has the following credentials:

(1)  Works in your specific area and understands it.
(2)  Has a history of "listing" and "selling" homes successfully.
(3)  Choosing a agent/broker that you feel comfortable with and understands what your needs are.
(4)  Is a full time agent/broker that is tooled to fully service your needs through the entire process.

The real estate industry is very transient.  Lots of people get a license but they don't really practise real estate as a full time occupation.  The average agent sells only a few homes per year.  Not enough to support a viable business!  A full time agent that treats their business as a job and is fully devote to their client(s) will typically sell 15-20 homes per year depending on their market space.  In 2012 we sold 60 homes and don't just "list" homes, we fully participate in the process of helping individuals sell their home and plan for their next move.

If you are talking about listing as an FSBO on Zillow
For Sale by Owner

If you are talking about listing on the Local MLS you have several options you should review and decide which one works best for you..
Info from Dept. of Justice Anti-Trust Web Site

Fee-for-Service Arrangements
"Fee-for-service brokers "unbundle" the package of real estate services typically offered by traditional full-service real estate brokers and charge a set or hourly fee for specific services, such as listing the house in the MLS, negotiating or closing contracts, and pricing the home"

Rebates and Inducements
"Some real estate brokers have increasingly begun to compete for customers by offering cash rebates or other inducements to home buyers and sellers. Rebates that go directly to buyers or sellers lower costs on both sides of the transaction. Cash rebates are usually calculated as some fraction of the broker's commission and can result in thousands of dollars being returned to the consumer."
New business models can save consumers money
"Most consumers want to make as much money as possible on the sale of their home and spend no more than necessary when purchasing a home. In many cases, the standard broker's commission can offset a portion of the equity value that has been building up in a seller's home or push the price of a home beyond a buyer's purchasing power. Consumers who want to perform some of the steps involved in selling a home can reap significant financial savings by purchasing only those real estate brokerage services they actually want."

You are hiring Services..Agents are Selling Service
SOOO learn what you can about your options and shop around for what works best for you...

Good Luck

The most important thing you can do us to make sure that you hire a REALTOR. A REALTOR is a member of the National association of Realtors. THe next thing is to interview several agents and find the one that you think will do the best for you.Also  I would recommend that you ask for references and contact some of them. Good luck!

I would say the first step is to contact a local realtor to help give you an idea of the value of your home.  Furthermore they can explain the step by step process of what it takes to list the house and deal with the escrow.

The best way is to find a trusted REALTOR in your area who will know the process inside and out.

Are you asking how you can list your home for sale on Zillow?

The question is too open ended to get the proper response.
