Actually just know what you want for price, what will and won't be included in the price...ie appliances, blinds, curtain rods etc. If you accept an offer make sure you have a lawyer on your end to handle the transaction and the person buying from you does too. You can go to most regestries offices and get the neccessarry forms. Get a holding deposit from the interested party for until the point in time in which their financing is 100% approved. Of course for $700 or whatever it is...might not be a bad idea to pay welist or comfree as they have all the forums you need and will help you out with that stuff.
Another thing to keep in mind is that after you list a property with the MLS service you are still potentially responsible to pay the listing broker your full commission for 90 days afterwards if the buyer first contacted a listing agent to view your property while it was listed through the MLS service. I just had a situation like this occur literally an hour ago where someone knocked on my door and asked if I would still consider selling my property even though my listing expired last Friday. Thankfully they were honest enough to disclose to me that they had first seen the house while it was listed on the MLS system. So really after you list with MLS...I wouldn't be selling a house for at least 90 days afterwards privately because the people buying off you might not be being totally honest. That or you contact the agent you listed through and negotiate a price throught them.
