Are you thinking of selling your house- for sale by owner?

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Pro West 941000194

I normally don't even pay attention to SPAM in my email, but the headline on this was too good to pass up -

"CEO of FSBO Site Hires Realtor to sell Home!"

this is what Chris Curry wrote:

"The Founder and former CEO of was NOT able to sell
his condo even after trying 6 MONTH
.. Don't let FSBOs tell you off any more..

This is SO funny, and proves why agents are really needed. Here is the
quick overview of what happened:

1.    The FSBO dude tried HARD to sell his home FSBO for 6 months
2.    Then he brought in a Realtor after he realized he needed an expert!
3.    The Realtor told him to raise the price $150K
4.    The Agent was able to sell the condo in weeks for $150K more...

Do you want to see how I am going to use this to get listings? Check out 
this quick video of NAR Data that proves why FSBO end up hiring agents.

Hey, I also give you all the links to HUGE paper that wrote about this!

To your success,   Chris Curry  Gainesville & Jacksonville Realtor & Broker"

It is worthwhile to see his video as it shows NAR's FSBO stats for the last few years and it is no surprise that the percent of homes selling FSBO is down to only 9%!!

This is a very good post. There are so many reasons why a Realtor can make a huge difference in the sale of a home.

I saw that also and had a good laugh. The local For Sale by Owner store here in Beaverton closed its doors a little while back also as people started to realize that us agents can actually do a better job, get them more money in a shorter amount of time.
