Can I get some advice on selling a house in CA?

Hi everyone, I hope this is the right sub, if not just redirect me and I will copy and paste into another sub.

Basically the title. I live in a 2 story, 17 or 1800 sqft home, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, .25 of an acre as far as the backyard and frontyard go, in a rural area in CA. The house is in good shape, the outside is OK, it’s not green or anything, but it’s okay.

If I want to sell.. what’s the first step I should take? An appraiser? How much does a real estate agent cost and how much of a percentage do they take when someone buys the home? Say I sell the home for $350k, how much does the real estate agent take? I ask because well I need money to buy a house somewhere else (I am looking at Missouri and Texas), and money to move all my stuff. I have A LOT of stuff, some is antique furniture that would require a moving company that is very careful and professional. I bet that costs a bit of money. And the houses I am looking at in other states are 4 beds 2-3 baths, as I want a big family one day. Some of these large homes in other states are $200-$300k which seems pretty affordable, because here they’d be like $400k and up. If I sold my home, I could buy a house somewhere else with cash.

If a real estate agent costs too much, my family discussed not using an agent and just selling the house by ourselves. But I have no idea how to do this, either. I need a lot of advice.
