So we are moving and I have big doubts about the house selling. We do have some equity in it, so I don't think we will end up owing, but with this market who knows!

I have considered for sale by owner to save some money, but I do think I need help with closing paperwork. Also I will need it to be on the MLS to have any chance at all. We have about 3-4 month time frame to get the house sold.

What I am wondering if anybody on here can recommend a good realtor? I have tried searching, but I cannot find any statistics, or websites that offer anything other then a typical sales pitch.

I appreciate any info, anybody can give me,

No matter how good the realtor is, it does not mean your house will sell in the time frame you're looking at. I have one client who after a year is now on her way to be with her husband who took a job in North Carolina. It took that long for their home to sell.

Some of it just has to do with trends; how many are in foreclosure? how many are wanting to buy brand new vs. previously owned? etc etc

My suggestion is to met with a a few realtors and interview them and go with your gut.

Personally, I wouldn't have even look twice at the home we're currently in if it was not through a realtor.. don't ask why, just how I roll

Chris Pelkota Lee with Keller-Williams East Idaho bills herself as a seller's agent. You could start with her. She's good.
