Founder Uses Agent To Sell His Home!

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Select Realtors

FSBOThe headline sort of says it all, no?

Colby Sambratto, the founder of just sold his Manhatten apartment.  After spending 6 months trying to sell it on his own, he ended up hiring an agent.  The property was sold, complete with a 6% commission, for MORE than Mr. Sambratto had listed the property while trying to FSBO.  The final Sales Price?  $2.15 million. (It had been listed as a FSBO for $2 million, meaning he actually made $21,000 more by using an agent)

It only goes to show how important a real estate agent really is when it comes to selling your home!
