Thoughts and “Opinions”
By James Carney, Principal Broker with over 40 years’ experience.
Having worked with For Sale by Owner’s and being one myself on several occasions, I am convinced that the reason nearly 90% of FSBO’s eventually “List” their homes or take them off the market is as follows.
Four primary reasons I cite are:
- Shoppers looking for homes offered by owner are looking for a deal.
- Buyers are not comfortable looking at a home with the owner’s present and conducting the showing.
- Doing all the paperwork associated with buying/selling are quite complex.
- Buyer’s looking to purchase realize that REALTOR’s have access to ALL the listings, comps and the expertise to do all the work in order to complete a transaction satisfactorily and in most cases, it is no charge to the purchaser.
