Best deal is to find one of the listing services in the area that lists the house on MLS, gives you a sign and takes care of the paperwork. These are licensed RE agents who are running a FSBO type of operation with a fixed fee. They provide the services you actually need. They can help you price the house correctly as well. Since you are in GA, look in a major city, they don't have to be in the same one as you are in. (There is an outfit in Atlanta called Redfin, check them out.)

The rest of the hype about how hard it is to show a house (lol, they have to be kidding, really?), how you get more money if you pay them thousands to sit on their behinds, etc. are bad jokes. RE agents, IME, only know enough about RE Law to be dangerous (hire a lawyer for anything weird) and are right down there with used car salespeople when it comes to ethics and honesty. They may not all be a waste, but all the ones I have ever dealt with have been.

Good Luck!
