FSBO Seller Resources
The Most Common Mistakes Made By FSBO Sellers
Thinking of going the FSBO route?
It can be tempting to go FSBO, or selling For Sale By Owner, to save thousands of dollars of your hard-earned equity on commission fees. But there is a huge difference between selling your home yourself and hiring a Realtor. According to the National Association of REALTORS, less than 10% of FSBO sellers actually succeed without the help of a real estate agent.
You may think I'm only warning you about FSBO because I'm a real estate agent, but don't just take my word for it. Here are a few concrete reasons to avoid FSBO.
Common FSBO Mistakes
Are there FSBO Success Stories in Denver?
While you may have heard of FSBO sellers in Denver, NC, you should keep in mind that the average home sold by the owner sells for $210,000, while the average home sold with a real estate agent sells for nearly $250,000.
Most For Sale By Owner sellers want to save money, but if you account for the $40,000 lost on average and the money spent on the FSBO sign, marketing materials, and any attorneys or other professionals you hire to help out, you'll end up losing thousands of dollars in the process.
