Many home owners in these markets say the biggest reason they choose to list and sell their home themselves is because new online technology tools, such as those offered by Fizber, now allow them to do a lot of the same things a real estate agent would do to market and sell their home. Thus, many of these home owners are choosing to self-direct the listing of their home instead of hiring a full-time real estate professional to do the work for them.
