Zillow Advice: Pricing - i am interested in selling my house http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/i-am-interested-in-selling-my-house/519204/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate I recommend a tech savvy ... http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/i-am-interested-in-selling-my-house/519204/ I recommend a tech savvy agent that will provide you with the modern day marketing and service. Also, an agent who isn't too busy with other clients. Remember, any agent can put up a sign, draft up paperwork and market the property local MLS. But the newer generation of realtors will blow your listing up all the 100's of real estate websites, will invest into custom flyer designs, and custom websites. These days everything is visual. Make them work for the 3% commission! I recommend to interview at least 3 full time agents.
