You never see self made millionaires putting their house for sale by owner. They learned not to step over dollars to pick up pennies. If you sold your house without using a good broker you did 2 things... #1 According to statistics you gave an average of 12% of your money the buyer...(This is after a full commission is factored in) . #2 You opened yourself up to a massive litigation risk. At least have the smarts to buy some E & O protection!!!!! Man we spend tons of money working for the public & you don't even have pay us! We don't earn a deal that makes you happy we are out the time & expense.
