The FSBO program is designed to assist home sellers in successfully selling their home, saving them thousands of dollars in commission costs. Most of our For Sale By Owner clients only spend around $1500 to sell their home rather than paying that $30,000 to $70,000 commission. The Best Part - All they had to do was show their home - FSBO did the rest - from the advertising to paperwork to closing.
The real estate industry is rapidly changing as consumers are becoming more educated about their options and role in the sale of property. While some sellers will continue to hire (and pay for) a real estate agent, those who are willing to learn about what is involved in the process from companies such as For Sale By Owner, are beginning to realize that they have the tools, knowledge and unique position as property owners to take back control over the sales process. Selling a home is not Rocket Science.
Areas of Expertise
Agent-listed properties are at a stand still, while private sales in Northern Virginia continue to be strong. The reason: price and exposure. "Price is the main motivator in a buyer's market," said Debbie Kent, owner of For Sale By Owner Services, a real estate publishing company. "If you price it right and expose it to buyers, you will sell twice as fast as agent-listed homes. Our customers have seen it in our program since 1995 in Northern Virginia and the Surrounding areas. The exposure to buyers through our #1 Rated FSBO magazine and websites is 20 times higher than being listed with an agent," she said.
