Most people are capable of selling their own home, as long as they are willing to make the commitment of time, effort, and money it will take to make the sale! However, there are also pitfalls to watch for when you sell your own home – some that could cost you more money than the commissions you would otherwise pay, and others that could even cost you the sale!

Buyers shop "buy owner" sellers for one reason – to save the commission. If they succeed, you don’t.
