Selling your home yourself can be rewarding and can sometimes save you commission but net you less money and time in the end IF you sell..... Many home owners who try to list a home themselves find that the process can be very difficult to manage properly and expensive if they buy signs, place ads, etc only to list later with an agent. Over 80% of FSBO's end up listing with an agent anyway. Also, did you know that there are forms REQUIRED by the state of Ohio that you need to fill out when entering into a purchase agreement with a buyer? What should you do?
