Cindy, many of them are on my website www.soldbydon.com. I list lots of FSBOs when sellers want an exclusive agency listing yet retain the right to sell by owner. All those listings appear on Realtor.com; however, Realtor.com does not publish contact info on sellers (no names, phone numbers, etc) so having an agent to research this info is in your best interests and if you utilize my services it there is no cost to you. Why would someone not want to use a good agent who can negotiate in their best behalf and minimize contractual liabilities, versus you as a consumer working directly with sellers where the risk is high? An insider secret: A high percentage of FSBOs are overpriced or have pre-sale problems; some wind up in expensive litigation because neither party understands the nuances of real estate law. Over half of the FSBO's I've contacted in the past 20 years have title, mortgage, or appraisal issues that will halt a sale. When these problems crop us is when many sellers decide to employ the services of a Realtor to keep the deal alive. Good agents solve problems.
