Similar experience as Howdy, we listed on Grapevine this past winter and sold within 3 weeks. We also listed on MLS for additional exposure.

It was our first time selling a house so it was a bit nerve-wracking but this isn't rocket science. I am sure you have done your due diligence by now but make sure the house is clean, de-cluttered, de-personalized and most important of all, it has an attractive asking price as you need to get bodies in the door before offers start to come in.

We had 3 agents come in to provide *free* market evaluation (they know full well we were under no obligations to sign anything). We subsequently took 2.5% off the listing price the agents recommended us and went with Grapevine. If somebody wanted to lowball us, we showed them the brochures detailing our house and how much we should list for and I find that work most of the time. The buyers and the agents representing them know if a house is reasonably priced.

We were ready to go with an agent if we didn't sell after 1 month. Thankfully, we did not have to get to that point.

Be confident, like i said this is not rocket science and I wish you the best of luck!
