To Hire An Agent or To Not Hire An Agent, that’s the 3% Question

Am I greedy? I don’t think so. I am pretty generous in many ways. So am I greedy to think about pocketing a 3% commission and going it alone?

I don’t know. Listing agents nowadays have it pretty easy. A house in the burbs of Atlanta [in the same neighborhood of a house that goes up for auction on our site in December] sold in 7 days. 7 days people.

The listing agent didn’t really have to do anything but list it on the MLS. It’s in a super nice neighborhood so it sells itself really. They scored a $12,000 paycheck for listing in a seller’s market. Should you save your dough and list it yourself?
