There is a sort of halfway point between a full service broker and a FSBO (For Sale By Owner). There are several 'discount brokers' who will help you sell your house, providing support and guidance, but charging a much lower fee than a realtor (2% vs. 6-7% of the selling price of the property). Assist2Sell (www.assist2sell.com) is a discount broker, with franchise offices all across the U.S. There are many local discount brokers that you can find on the Internet. Research a discount broker to be sure you know what you're getting.
