We live about 40 minutes outside Milwaukee and with my growing responsibilities at 800ceoread, we need to get a little closer.
So, we are selling our house and I think there will be quite the story to tell by the time it is done.
Anybody who knows Amy or I know that we can’t do anything the traditional way. We have decided to sell the house ourselves and forgo using a real estate agent. Some might say we are crazy (this week’s Fortune is the Real Estate Survival Guide and recommends getting an agent), but we think it is going to work just fine. Amy has time to handle the inquiries and showings. For $500, you can have it listed like any other house in MLS. The service we used included professional signage and a public web page.
I thought I would give everyone the important information in case they knew someone looking for a house in western Waukesha County (that’s Wisconsin).

P.S. Freakonomics has some things to say about real estate. The looked at the ten most common words used in real estate listings and were able to divide them in two categories based on price gotten for house. One of the no-no’s is exclamation marks. You will not see any of those in our listings for the house 🙂
P.P.S. We’ll keep you posted on how things go.
