What are the benefits of using a real estate agent to sell a house instead of listing it on Zillow for free?

Have you ever seen the scene at the end of “Finding Nemo” where all the dentist’s fish manage to get the dentist to seal them into individual plastic bags and roll themselves out the dentist’s window, onto the street, across the street and into the harbor? Their escape plan was limited to getting out of the tank in the dentist’s office. They succeeded! And then they found themselves floating on top of the ocean, in sealed plastic bags. Not a good plan for live fish.

Once they all rolled into the harbor, they all looked at each other and said “now what?”

Don’t be the fish in “Finding Nemo.” If you are asking this question, you have no business trying to sell your own home. Listing it on Zillow is step one of about 150–200 steps required to sell a home in the U.S., and there is no free website to help you with steps two and beyond. It will often take an expensive solution to get you out of the plastic bag you’ve encased yourself in with this “plan.”
