Good point Rod. I too find the Star Power scripts useful although I sometimes forget to log on and check them. I believe you can sign up to have them delivered via email.

Yea I am aware the homes with Realtors tend to sell for more, but where is that information so I can find it?

Colleen - Thanks. Yes, I get them by email.

John - my point was not that homes sold by Realtors sell for more (that is a statistic promoted by the National Association of Realtors.  Here's a link).  My point was to expect to get offers discounted by what the buyer perceives you are saving by not using a Realtor.  You may break even compared to using a Realtor, or possibly worse depending on how much you spend on your own promotions.
