Depending on how much you owe on your home and other factors, you may be able to rent your home out.  We have a very strong rental market here now.

Thanks Michael:

Zillow only allows one to edit posts for 5 minutes, so once 5 minutes have past they are there for posterity (or until a moderator comes along and deletes contact info).

Welcome to Zillow.

@Ford48:  Please don't contact agents that violate Zillow policy by putting their contact information in their posts.

If you need to sell your home soon, consider the value of a local experienced full time Realtor. Price is important but not the only issue that needs to be addressed.

Since you are laid off and need to sell quickly you must consider a few things.
How much inventory of houses is there?
How long can you reasonably go without selling?
What do you need to break even?
What is your house really worth now?

You may find you owe more on your house than it is worth. If so ask a real estate agent about a short sale. If you have more equity than is owed on the house you have to price it strategically. That means pricing at the bottom of the possible price range the house should sell in not near the top. If your house is listed at below market price by a little you have a much better chance of selling it quickly. If you price it to high it could sit for several months never being looked at.

When you interview agents ask about their marketing plan. Get several different agents to give you a CMA. Throw out the highest priced one as it will be wrong. If the pricing and marketing are wrong you will not sell quickly. That is a serious consider for you so do it right from the start.

You can remove "make me move" by signing in with the same name you used to put it up as "make me move", then open the property details page, scroll down to edit and hover cursor over "edit".  One of the options will be to remove "make me move".
