    Myth #1 – You Will Pocket More Money Selling on Your Own

    Most FSBO sites say you can save the commission by selling on your own. What happened in Sambrotto’s sale?

    From the WSJ article:

    “The broker, Jesse Buckler, said he told Mr. Sambrotto the apartment in the Lion’s Head building on West 19th Street near Sixth Avenue was priced too low and wasn’t drawing the right buyers.

    By May, it went into contract, he said, after attracting multiple offers. It closed in the last few days for $150,000 more than the original asking price.”

    Myth #2 – The Internet Alone Can Sell Your Home

    Many have said that, with the introduction of home search on the internet, hiring an agent is no longer a necessity. What happened to the FSBO guru when he attempted to only depend on the internet?

    From the WSJ article:

    “Looking to move his family to the suburbs, [Mr. Sambrotto] said he carefully staged his apartment for sale himself, and put it on the market. But after using a mix of websites to publicize his apartment, he said he had only ‘middling success’ and switched to a broker because many buyers were so reliant on brokers.”

    Bottom Line

    There is a reason the real estate industry has been around for centuries: it performs a valuable service.
