Depends. On your ability, time to dedicate to the selling process, and your specific very local market (neighborhood level). Generally speaking and all things equal, the answer would be yes, you probably have a better chance to be succesful as a FSBO in today's market versus say 3 years ago. Inventory levels are decreasing and well priced and presented homes are selling relatively fast.
That being said, I advise anyone against a pure FSBO (that being a home for sale without being listed on the MLS and without broker cooperation, i.e. without offering a commission to potential buyer agents). The main reason is marketing exposure: you plainly can not achieve the same exposure as a pure FSBO as you would by listing on the MLS. Both from an eyeballs perspective (how many buyers will find your home online, the only place that matters) and from a buyer pool perspective (realize that most buyers are working with buyer agents, so your home will be "invisible" to them for all intensive purposes since buyer agents will just show MLS listed homes). A not far behind reason: the dedication and perseverance required to get a home from contract to closing.
With that being said, allow me a little self promotion. Take a look at what Propertio offers (http://propertio.com
). Our "owner managed" listings where you do most of the work like an FSBO, yet with some of the tools of a professional, and under the guidance of a professional, start at just 195. Further, if you find it just takes too much time (and headaches) to do it yourself, we offer a full service "agent managed" listing, where we actually manage and do the entire selling process ourselves for a flat fee of 2,950.
The cherry on top: you will not pay a buyer agent commission if the buyer is not represented by an agent.
Give me a call or send me an email and we can discuss further.
