Selling your home without the help of a realtor, also known as a for sale by owner (FSBO) is not as uncommon as you might think. In fact, over the past four years more than a quarter of all buyers and sellers were active on the market with little or no help from real estate agents, according to editor of REAL Trends Steve Murray. Furthermore, about half owners who wanted to sell their home without a realtor were successful, and only 5 percent ended up enlisting an agent.
The data shows that you have a good chance of success if you choose a for sale by owner, but make no mistake, it’s no guarantee. You are essentially doing the work of the realtor yourself, and you’ll have to spend some money in that capacity on everything from newspaper ads to signs, flyers and brochures. It’s a significant time commitment too, but worth it if you want to make it happen.
