My house is for sale and someone has offered me cash?


My house is on the market for 154,900.00 and someone has offered me 140,000.00 cash and they can close within 7 days. I know there’s money involved in selling a house and also the realtor fee is not cheap. How do I know if 140,000.00 is good or not without asking my realtor? How do you determine how much it costs to sell a home? Certain percent maybe? My home is paid for so It’s not like I have to accept the first offer.
