As a Florida resident I am sure you are aware of the volumns of foreclosures that are in your area. You are probably also aware that there is 1.5 Miliion properties that have been foreclosed that are getting ready to be released. I am also sure you know how that is going to affect your pricing. Most realtors put there properties on between thirty and forty search engines to get their properties sold. How many short sales are there in your area.
How does your property compare to other properties that have been sold, not listed. You also probably krnow that the best time to sell your property without a realtor is in a sellers market. Here in Florida we are in a buyers market, most buyers are investors and are looking for properties for thirty or forty cents on the dollar. If a realtor is taking 180 days plus to sell a property with all their resources it is even more difficult for a for sale by owner.
No body wants to pay commissions, but if you do not sell your home within a year and the above properties are released for sale the market is flooded with inventory values again will be be further depreciated. How much do you stand to lose not only from the devaluation of your property but also from additional taxes, insurance, utilities and HOA fees while you wait to sell. Most for sale by owners are potential short sales and the owners are trying to avoid the inevitable.
