For Sale by Owner


Are You A For Sale by Owner? (FSBO)

If so, you are a brave and courageous soul. By now you realize your endeavor to sell your home by yourself was not just taking on one job but multiple jobs! You have been a handyman, inspector, price analyst, copywriter, marketer, staging professional, receptionist, host/hostess, salesperson, mortgage consultant, and bookkeeper all in one!
For Sale By Owners certainly deserve credit for giving it a good try, but if you didn’t succeed, you can pat yourself on the back, because you are not alone. Statistics show For Sale By Owner sales are dropping, despite all the access to internet lists, etc.

Hiring a Realtor saves both time and money

According to the 2021 National Association of Realtors "Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers"

Did you know?

the typical FSBO home sold for $260,000 compared to $318,000 for agent-assisted home sales.

As a Realtor I filter out the dreamers and time wasters.

Buyers are not always buyers, sometimes they are wishfully thinking without any consideration for you or your time. FSBOs are easy prey for these Wishful Thinkers because they don’t ask the right questions. As a professional, I don’t put people in my car (nor do most other good Realtors) until they have proven themselves to be qualified, ready, willing, and able to purchase a home.

It takes a whole company to do this job…

As any experienced FSBO will tell you, its not an easy job to sell your own home. After keeping track of the time spent (away from doing the things you want to do) and the amount of money it takes to get the home ready to market it, plus taking into account any false starts and anxious days on end waiting for a decision, a FSBO would be better off delegating the job to those who do it all the time. Having your home listed by a Realtor  into "the system" is cost effective and safer.
