FSBO: Most Buyers Use a Real Estate Agent
Studies show that 88% or more buyers of real estate use a licensed real estate agent.
If a FSBO seller receives a call from a real estate agent, it makes sense that the seller would take the call, since most buyers come with a real estate agent.
Of the 12% of buyers who do not use a real estate agent, many of them are purchasing new homes.
This leaves less than 12% of buyers who are looking to purchase in the resale real estate market without a real estate agent.
Since the marketing plan of a FSBO seller is usually far less extensive than that of a property which is listed with a real estate agent, the likelihood of a FSBO seller attracting one of these unrepresented buyers is minimal.
FSBO Seller: If you really want to sell your home, then take calls from real estate agents.
