Forsalebyowner.com and Justifying the Price

By
Real Estate Agent with Prudential Preferred Realtors

It wasn't that long ago that I published an article titled, "Forsalebyowner.com - Is It Worth The Price" I actually had a lot of traffic which proves that probably the thought of selling a home on your own probably hits about every consumer's mind at one point or another.  I recently received an email letting me know that in an article titled, "For Sale By Owner: A Look at Selling Your Home on Your Own" that my original article was referenced and linked to in this article.

Well, I thought that was fantastic but more important I believe that sellers need to know all the options that are available to them and how they can make an informed decision.  Some people are successful at selling on their own and some don't want the hassle.  I believe my initial article was a great article because it wasn't from a REALTOR standpoint... it was from the consumer standpoint. 

Ask around and see if sites such as these are working for the people that use them.  They will work, but you also need to be able to justify the price and compare it to the benefits that it offers you.  There are options out there and there is full-service as well.  What program works for you?  I have the ability to be flexible and offer different services, just give me a call (616) 318-6101.

Just like a lawyer. A person who sells there own home has a fool for a client. Have a great 2009.

Good Morning Tammy,  There are a few fsbos that can pull it off, but not many.   Fsbos are typically inexperienced sellers and eventually see that they need professional help.  Although in this market I am seeing homes staying fsbo until they get foreclosed.  This is definitely a loose, loose situation.
