You can post your home on sites like Zillow on your own.  However, going with a Certified Realtor does have its benefits and comes with the backing of a broker and agency.  For one of the neighborhoods that I serve, more than 70% of buyers come from outside the community - so the marketing that I do globally certainly gets a home in front of more potential buyers.  Good luck on the move, or if you already have moved, I hope that you found a wonderful new home!

Were you ever able to sell via For Sale By Owner?  Always love to hear success stories within our community.

Nationally in 2012, FSBO's sold 14%-18% less than homes listed by brokerages. Hiring an agent will cost you 6%, you profit 8%-12% more by hiring an agent. Not every transaction is the same but do you have the time to list it yourself? Probably not. Do you have the ability to market the home for sale? If your relying on Zillow and Craigslist, the answer is no. 

The bottom line is hire and agent.

Selling FSBO is not difficult,  I have sold 5 of my own houses and properties.  I have helped 6 friends sell their own homes.  Zillow has been very effective for three of my friends, especially when announcing the open houses, THE single most important selling opportunity, period.  Yes, you have more work to do, but a good book on Amazon on FSBO and you will have most of what you need.  You can also get on forums that support FSBO and get help if you need it. 

Remember, follow up studies, the satisfaction numbers are distributed in two big piles of satisfied vs. not satisfied.  The Not Satisfied is twice as large as Satisfied.  Follow the incentives, an RA wants a deal no matter what.  A 5% increase in price on a $200,000 that takes them extra effort only nets them $600 vs. $12,000.  That's why in studies by three different investigators, RA's advised sellers to take the 1.2th offer (remember this is over 2000 RA's in 3 markets) vs. the 2.4th offer when they sold their own properties.  You pay both ways with an RA because the incentives are misaligned. 

As for the nice little cartoons RA's like to wave around.  There has been only ONE preliminary study by an economist at Emory that actually went out into the field and gathered data from FSBOs.  The information shown by the Nation RE Assoc gathers data from failed FSBO's and from cherry picked results.  The prelimnary study estimated that educated FSBO's when paired to RA sales of similar market/value actually made about 10% more as they generally sold the 2.1st offer and had no RA costs.

This is not to say that saving 6% -9% is always the major point.  You may have many valid reasons to use an RA.  Just don't let misleading statements make the decision.  In any case if you are well educated as a FSBO you are in a much better position to negotiate with RA's and evaluate RA performance.

once you list it with an agent, your home will hit most major real estate websites that have IDX feed including Zillow, Trulia, Homes.com, etc

If your home is not already listed with an agent, you may want to consider using a flat fee brokerage to (at a minimum) get your home listed on MLS. Once listed on MLS your home will show up on the three major Twin Cities websites (Edina, Burnet and Remax) as well as any other broker that has a reciprocity agreement with the local MLS.

Just listing it on Zillow won't get you as much exposure as listing on MLS (I'm not a flat fee broker - just offering some sound advice).

In addition to the option offered by the other poster, the Zillow help center is full of detailed instructions.   Or, you could use postlets (owned by Zillow).  It is free and syndicates with a lot more sites than Zillow. 

The NAR data on FSBOs is full of holes.  For example, if a FSBO owner decides to use a flat fee listing service for an MLS number, NAR counts it as an agent sale and not a FSBO.

Here's a link to a useful article from Stanford University  evaluating the benefit of having an agent. 

FSBO is not trivial, you do have to be prepared to do a lot more than put a sign in the yard and advertise on the web.

It is simple to do.  At the top of the screen go to homes.  The post a home for free will pop up. 

I am frequently asked by sellers how much money they can save by going the FSBO route.  When I ask about thier knowledge of their particluar market, what their marketing budget may be, how they will qualify buyers, etc. it becomes evident that in these cases they will make more money using a good Realtor. 

Consider:
