After meeting with two different realtors and coming to the conclusion that we just cannot afford the approximately $12,000 commission they would charge, we have listed the house for sale on Craig's List and made a "group" on Facebook. Within 15 minutes of the listing being on Craig's List, we had an inquiry. We are careful to inform those asking for the address so that they can drive by for a look, that although the house is on 200th Street, we have a very wide driveway and that most of the living area in the house are at the back. We have had about seven of inquiries of that type but so far no one has wanted to set up a viewing.
My Facebook friends are all looking out for us too. One friend has a son that may be interested.
The following Friday, we reduced the price and relisted it on Craig's List so that it will be at the top of the list for this long weekend. We have to be patient. It will happen.
