Should I use a Realtor to sell my house?

One way to save money is to avoid paying a real estate agent the full 3 percent commission to sell your home (you’ll still need to pay the buyer’s agent a 3 percent commission fee, unless the buyer didn’t use an agent). To avoid paying 3 percent to a listing agent all together, you can sell your house by owner.
