It’s possible but I don’t recommend it unless you already have a buyer lined up.

Because of lawyers/inspections/etc, I wouldn’t recommend it. Sales can get complicated really easily - especially if the house is older (have bought and sold 3 homes).

My husband is a realtor if you want to talk to him to weigh options! Will PM you.

I have sold a house in Chicago, super easy in a sellers market (like right now). Just need to get a lawyer that knows you don't have a sellers agent and pay them a little extra. I had mine be the contact for $ negotiation. You will need to get the listing in the MLS, which a company did for me for a minimal cost. You will be listed as the 'contact' so be ready to do showings or set up a lockbox and be available to answer buyers questions. Also, be sure to include in the listing that you are paying the market % to the buying agent, otherwise they won't show your property. Berg Properties in Oak Park listed my property on the MLS for me, this was years ago, it including listing on all other sites such as Redfin, Realtor, Zillow etc. I think there are services online who can list it for a fee as well, do some research.

Would you continue into the nursing leadership ladder or go into health informatics (which also has leadership!)?
