“Yes” or “No” to FSBO
One can find real bargains looking at Homes For Sale By Owner, but . . . .
When you find a real bargain on a home for sale by owner, it is usually one that has not yet been advertised and one whose owners have not consulted with a Realtor to get a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) before setting the price.
Most people who offer their homes for sale without benefit of a Realtor fall into 4 general categories:
* People who intensely dislike Realtors and don't want to pay one.
* People who have a lot of experience in buying and selling real estate - it may be a business for them, not a one-time thing.
* People who have the time to be available to show their property, negotiate, and take care of the details involved with a sale.
* People who have consulted with a Realtor, know what their house should sell for, and hope to "save the commission" by doing it themselves.
