A Bit of Advice:
If you are in need of Fast Cash, call me now! If you are not, sell your home on your own. Make the necessary repairs, cosmetic work and upgrades and sell it for top dollar. Find a local Escrow company to handle your transaction, and save yourself thousands of dollars in commissions to agents who are doing the same thing that you can do for just a small portion of your time.
