FSBO: For Sale By Owner

Are you considering selling your own home?  Recently, I saw a sign go up in front of a home.  It read “For Sale By Owner, no brokers or agents”.  After about 2 weeks, it was gone.  I thought to myself, “Hmm that house sold fast”.  The next day, a new sign appeared on the front lawn from a big agency now representing the seller.

Obviously, the seller wanted to save themselves money by selling their own home but things didn’t quite work out.  Why could this have been?  Before you decide to sell your home, as for sale by owner, consider these points:

FSBO can’t list their home on the MLS.  The MLS (mulitiple listing service)

More likely to have legal problems

They are often overpriced

Buyers feel intimidated

Agents are reluctant to show

 

Having a trained professional greatly improves your home selling experience.  Abacus properties will manage your property listing on the MLS.  We will take care of the paper work, to minimize legal issues.  Let us do the work for you!
