For any number of reasons people run into financial tough times and begin to wonder, “Can I sell my house quickly, without using a real estate agent?” The answer is yes, and I’d like to share with you why you may want to do that. First off, if your house is in great shape and would fetch top dollar or close to that by listing it with an agent, I recommend you go that route. Some homeowners have success selling their market-ready homes by themselves. However, this is not for the faint of heart. As a licensed Realtor here on the Big Island, I know the complexity of the real estate transaction. There are many pitfalls from which a good agent can save you.
