As an investor, sometimes it's easier to sell properties via an agent, and other times it's easier to sell them as FSBOs. In the cases where I opt for FSBO, the commission has absolutely NO influence in my decision making. I've already accounted for the selling-side commission related costs when I purchased the property, so the commissions are a non-issue. The primary reason I'd opt to not use an agent for selling properties is that I didn't find one who was flexible enough to with me. In other words, if I sense that most agents in an area aren't comfortable working on deals with creative financing, then I most likely won't work with them--even for cash-only deals. I'm deeply concerned about the relationship for the long-term. I want to work with someone who's flexible and open-minded.
