If you want to sell your home and walk away with the most money, should you go it alone? For Sale By Owner â€“ also known as a FSBO - is real estate lingo meaning For Sale By Owner. Itâ€™s pronounced â€œFizzbowâ€. When the time comes, should you become a FSBO and try to sell your own home?
If you are selling by owner, you won't be able to load up your listing. Trulia is a site for professionals right now. FSBO's may seem like a good idea, but let me warn you, like many things in life it's not as easy as it seems. Preparation, Marketing, Pricing, Staging, Knowing the Contracts, Negotiation the Terms, Meeting the Deadlines, Knowing the Vendors, Verifying the Financing, Understanding the Law are just a few of the things we as licensed agents must successfully accomplish if we hope to get paid. We do all this up front (in most cases) on the promise that if we are successful we will see some income.
My strong advice is to find the best available agent to do all this for you. A great agent is worth more than their commission, a bad agent, or none at all will cost far more than just a commission. Best of luck however you proceed.
Good Luck to you!
