Hello, and welcome. I am a licensed attorney and happy to assist.
A homeowner can sell the property without a realtor, even without the abstract of title, but it will be necessary to utilize the services of title company to make sure the closing takes place, provide title insurance and handle the reports and surveys necessary to transfer the property. Doing so eliminates the issue of not having the abstract of title, and title insurance is required by most lenders, anyway. However, if neither you nor the buyer are concerned with formal title reports, and a traditional lender is not involved, you could technically bypass the title company, too. Not recommended, though.
I hope this helps. If you need additional information or clarification, just let me know. I'm here to help. If I have addressed your issue, please remember to leave a positive rating when prompted.
PS - Just to clarify, and abstract of title is not a formal requirement in executing a grant deed.
