"A real estate agent has the skills, the systems and networks to generate buyers at a speed an owner cannot," notes Michaels. "I'm not sure how a layman can really compete with the leverage, funding, systems, and experience of a successful real estate agent." Michaels also points out the inherent risk "For Sale by Owners" run by letting any interested party survey the interior of a private home unaccompanied by a licensed agent.Michaels encourages "For Sale by Owners" to set a time limit on how long they will try to sell the home themselves. "In the meantime, consider starting a relationship with an agent. At a weak moment, you might end up with a weak REALTOR® so it's a good idea to form a relationship with an agent now. Have them come by and look at the house and give you their opinion. It's free and there is surety in a multitude of counsel."
