Lisa,I understand your strategy, but strongly suspect it's flawed. First, if your home is worth $300,000 would you sit down in Las Vegas at a Poker Table filled with professional gamblers and put that at risk? Now, wait I know, you won't lose everything if you sell yourself, but you could be held liable for issues which could be close to that if you make a mistake. Now, offering a 6% selling office commission will get some attention, but it won't make up for being overpriced. Now, I'm not aware of what your price is, but it sounds like you want the thrill of negotiating and the challenge. The most common mistake made by others who try similar things is they over price to leave room to negotiate. I can tell you that this strategy is probably going to end up with a very long time on the market and few, if any offers. Those who do offer may be extreme low balls, hoping to take advantage of your extended time and the market and market fatigue. The longer your home sits on the market for sale, the lower the eventual price will probably be. If you're open to paying that high of a commission, why don't you find an outstanding agent, someone you could trust with the value of your home in cash, and let them put their knowledge and experience to work for you. Odds are good you'll sell in a more timely manner, for a higher net to your pocket and you'll be protected against mistakes which could come back to bite you and cost you even more. If you want to sell homes, get a license, find an office that will train you and mentor you and enjoy. Learning so many lessons at your expense may be costly in both time and money. Just my opinion. I'm sure you'll get many more.
