For Sale by Owner Statistics
Recent Statistics show less than 8% of sales were For Sale By Owner (FSBO) in 2015. The typical FSBO home sold for $185,000 while Realtor-assisted homes sold much higher at $240,000. Most Homeowners who try to sell their homes FSBO end up listing with an Agent.
An incredible amount of time, marketing, and required real estate expertise goes into selling a home. In fact, the founder of a popular FSBO site listed his home after 6 unsuccessful months of trying to sell on his own (home was successfully sold by his Agent with multiple offers).
How I can help
Selling a home involves much more than putting a sign in the yard.
