What benefit of having your home listed on Zillow do you anticipate?  You'd be wise to enlist the help of a professional.  The benefit of an expert agent will outweigh the cost of one.

Most serious buyers do not look for their next home on Zillow. It does not have all the listings.
They go to Realtor.com or have their Realtor email them the homes from the MLS.
You may decide that full representation and full marketing will give you best net and the least headaches.

The reason to hire a Realtor to market your home for sale is because the right Realtor has marketing options at his/her disposal that you do not.  Moreover, negotiating a fair and equitable sale and managing the transaction to a successful close, are paramount.

There are many individuals who've been very successful with FSBOs.   However, not everyone has what it takes.

A thought provoking blog was written by a frequent contributor to Zillow "thinking about selling as a fsbo?"    If you decide you've got what it takes, then consider reading the same person's blog on posting a FSBO on Zillow most effectively.

Good luck!

You'll get much more exposure through the syndication the MLS offers if you go through a Realtor.  Also, you won't have to worry about any legal issues.

Selling you home is not as easy as it looks. The For Sale By Owner Founder has given up and hired a Realtor.

NAR data shows that Realtors sell properties on average for 19% more than For Sale By Owners do. Today there are a plethora of obstacles to a successful sale, having a very experienced, savvy agent on your side will more than pay for itself.

Zillow is a great enhancement tool. The amount of agents who utilize Zillow may be limited. Your agents will usually go on the MLS daily to check for updates and not Zillow. If there is a flat fee option for adding to the MLS , then maybe you'll have a little more traffic.
