US News and World Report is starting a new feature called Housing Rumble on their Home Front blog. It will be a regular feature where they throw out a subject and have two people on opposing sides debate it.
Thier first Rumble centers around "Do you need a real estate agent to sell your home?".
Lucky for real estate agents, one of the best real estate bloggers in the country (IMHO) is representing the Pro Agent side, Jay Thompson. The other side is represented by Greg Healy, who is the VP of Operations at forsalebyowner.com.
If you have some time today, I am sure Jay would appreciate your support with some good back up evidence as to the value agents bring to the table.
Day 1 - Pro Agent by Jay July 14th
Day 2 - No Agent by Greg July 15th
Day 3 - Response from Jay July 16th
Day 4 - Response from Greg July 17th
Make sure you visit the site to vote after the debate is over on whether or not an agent is necessary.
