Once you have finally decided that it's time to sell, prepare yourself to make dozens (if not hundreds) of decisions, starting with whether to work with a real estate agent. Selling your home can be a tedious task. While most homeowners hire a listing agent or a real estate professional to help them navigate the real estate market, others brave the world of FSBO – For Sale By Owner. According to Zillow research, 36% of sellers attempt to sell their homes themselves, but challenges along the way lead many of them to eventually hire an agent. In the end, only 11% of sellers end up selling their home without a real estate agent.

What is FSBO?

For sale by owner, also referred to as FSBO, is when a homeowner lists their home without the assistance of a professional real estate agent. When selling on your own, you’re responsible for the process from start to finish, including pricing, staging, listing, negotiating, drawing up paperwork, and closing. 

Consider these FSBO statistics: In addition to the 57% of sellers who believe that selling FSBO will save them money, 36% believe it will save them time, and 27% don’t hire an agent because they feel they know their home better than any agent could. Homeowners that attempt FSBO transactions are more likely to be Millennials, city dwellers, and minorities.

Why choose FSBO?

Most sellers decide to go it alone in order to avoid paying the standard 6% commission fee to the real estate agents involved in the sale. While most FSBO sellers are trying to keep more of their profit in their pocket, it’s important to note that a local real estate agent likely has more expertise in pricing strategy, so it’s possible that the net profit you earn from a FSBO could end up being lower than if you had listed with an agent.
