Well here is something to think about: Sellers have been employing REALTORS for over 200 yrs., WHY? 70% of FSBO choose a REALTOR because REALTORS can sell houses FASTER and for MORE MONEY. Serious buyers only shop FSBO to save a commission. Look at the law of supply and demand. # of REALTORS in my area is 1,316 with an average of 10 prospects each for a total of 13,160 and the average days to close is 45 days. If it takes 1,316 REALTORS with 13,160 prospects 45 days to get sellers their money how much time will it take for the FSBO? My opinion is that you need to hire a REALTOR right away so you don't leave any money on the table. The longer it takes to sell, the more money that could be lost.
