Absolutely do not show FSBOS 'at the same rate as MLS' published homes.
Why? For the same reason you CAN NOT buy a Big Mac at Subway! They don't sell them there.
You also can not buy a new Honda at the Ford dealership?
Or a 2in1 convertible at the iMac store?
Be aware, a FSBO is trying to sell a "BLT" but the BLT does not appear on the menu? If you can't be seen, you failed the most fundamental law of sales.
FSBO's make their choice. As others have said, EVERYTHING a FSBO states must be verified by the real estate agent. This means double the work for the agent....which will equate to 'ABOVE prevailing' compensation. Sounds fair to me. AND, the FSBO MUST sign the compensation and SELLING CONTRACT agreement BEFORE I bring a buyer. WILL A FSBO DO THAT?
OF course not. So we simply show real estate that we know is for sale.

Best of success,

as stated by felix below, have your agent present at all showings or have one of your "good neighbors" meet and or give access to the property.

Hi Melinda,

A great deal depends on where the home is located. Right now in Rockland County, when a home is properly priced, in Orangetown, homes are "flying off the shelf". I brought my client to buy a home there, and whether it was in Orangeburg, Tappan, Pearl River or any other village of Orangetown, the southernmost section of Rockland County, if I didn't get there fast with my buyers, within a few days the home had an accepted offer. In other areas of the county, homes don't seem to be moving as quickly, yet. Even well priced homes. I can give you a better idea of how long it would take for your home to sell, once I see it and once we set a price. As long as your home is priced to sell, I will be able to give you a time frame, although much depends on that. Staging is not necessary, as long as your home is neat, clean and decluttered, although it might help, to some extent.

I hope when you are ready to sell your home, you call me at 914-588-2365 so I can provide you with a free comparative market analysis and so we can discuss all your questions in detail.

Take care,

Hello Robbie, As a Rocklad County Realtor one of the slight savings is paying $4 per/1000 in transfer tax. Another would be a slight decline in Title Insurance. Any further questions I can easily be reachec at any of the numbers or my email below. Always there to help! Regards Allan
