If you are able, on your own, to find a buyer for your property, then there truly is no need for the employment of a real estate licensee and payment of the commissions associated therewith. However, if you cannot find a buyer or your property is for some reason difficult to sell, then the access to the Multiple Listing Service available to real estate licensees may be invaluable and well worth the commission to be incurred.
For those of you able to find a buyer (or seller) without the use of a real estate licensee, it is still highly advisable to: have a purchase and sale agreement; ensure that all requisite disclosures have been made and inspections conducted; review preliminary title reports and escrow instructions; and review purchase money loan documents.
