Can I sell my home without a Real Estate Agent?

Don't get me wrong, real estate agents provide a much-needed service to the community. They also come with expertise that the average person simply does not have with regard to how and when to sell a home. However, particularly if you have a willing buyer in mind and the patience to jump through the hoops yourself, selling your home is not as complicated as it may seem and may save you significant dollars.

It involves behavior that is used to establish power and control over another person, often through fear and intimidation over a period of time, using threats and verbal and emotional abuse.

Your understanding a lawsuit.

A lawsuit is a bit like venturing into the deep dark wilderness.

Without a good guide through the legal maze of a lawsuit, you're likely to get lost in the process, step into nasty legal weeds, or even get "eaten" by a lawyer who convinces a judge to rule against you.
