How would we go about putting up our home for sale on Zillow?

We will be retiring to Henderson Nev, (wanting to buy one of your condos there) but need to sell our home here in 55421 area. We like how you show the homes & want to do the same with ours.  Its estimated at $175,000. (lowest) and we believe it will sell quickly with all the upgrades.  4 bedroom, 2 bath, rambler walk out... Looking for any help we can get..

Hi Mary and Robert,
By now I imagine you have been bombarded with calls.  Selling a home is a combination of art and science.  If you don't have a professional Realtor you work with you may want to interview two or three.  You want a Realtor who you can work with, one who has experience and recent results selling homes like yours.  We can help you sell your home here for top dollar as well as purchase the Nevada condo.  Our experienced relo team can smooth the move for you.  Might be worth a cup of coffee together.

Zillow is a place where you can advertise a home for sale by owner, but Zillow doesn't offer any real estate services.    Some people are quite capable of selling by owner, others don't have the interest and skills to do so.

Good Lord do yourself a favor and call in a couple local Realtors to give you an opinion of value, do not tell the Realtors you have called others, do not tell the realtors what YOU believe your home is worth, do not tell the Realtors the minimum you need to receive. Simply allow them to do their job and sit down for 10 minutes with you to explain their opinions, marketing plan, costs and ideas. After they have finished you are now in a much better position to make some educated decisions.

If you read my comments here regarding a few things fsbo never think about you may reflect differently http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Marketing-Two-Ways/529040/#comment-response-1807778

FSBO.com founder hired a Realtor for his own personal home (that says it ALL!)

Best wishes

Mr and Mrs Denotter,
While Zillow does there best to give you their Zestimate on the value of your home I would highly recommend at least interviewing an agent and getting their price opinion as well.  Zillow's own disclaimer states that they can be as much as 30% off the actual market value.  Good luck with your move and let me know if you would like a referral
