There are many different reasons why property owners choose to go it alone when it comes to selling their home (FSBO). The most obvious reason is commission. The owner may not have enough equity in the property to pay a commission, especially in a down market. Some sellers would rather control who is entering their property, and some sellers feel that they know the property best and will be able to point out the assets better to prospective purchasers. Realtors have always looked at for sale by owner (FSBO) properties as possible future listings. How can one person possibly compete with thousands of realtors and the consolidated multiple listing services?
There is no question that the system of having a central database for all property listings in a local market has been very successful for decades. Marketing the seller’s property through this listing service was, in a lot of cases, all that was required to sell the property. The listing agent was typically not concerned with bringing the buyer to the deal. Very successful listing agents could have 30, 40 or more listings at one time. A buyer relied on an agent and the real estate company for any information about the properties for sale. In essence, the real estate companies controlled the information. This put the (FSBO) property at a huge disadvantage. The only person that had that property information was the seller.
The internet has completely changed the flow of information with a lot of industries, real estate included. Buyers no longer need to rely on a real estate company for information about properties. Properly marketing a property today is more sophisticated and requires companies to embrace the new technology to provide the best possible exposure for their clients. The realtor today that lists a property with little or no internet presence has as big of a disadvantage as the (FSBO) did ten years ago.
Some of the most brilliant minds in the world will tell you that numbers do not lie. The numbers for purchasers that search for their next property on the internet are staggering. According to an article on the National Association of Realtor’s web site in Sept, of 2008, Danielle Hale, Research Economist, states, “84 percent of all buyers identified the internet as a source in their home search. including 87 percent of first-time buyers, 82 percent of repeat buyers, 79 percent of new home buyers and 85 percent of buyers of previously owned homes.”
