Homeowners sometimes wonder if they should sell their home on their own. In real estate lingo, this is known as FSBO, or “for sale by owner”. Most data suggests the answer to this question is emphatically “no”! A few of the drawbacks that a Seller encounters when trying to do a FSBO include: no access to MLS (multiple listing service); no access to many real estate search websites including home search giant, Realtor.com; limited access to recent sales data so a reasonable list price can be achieved and less experience with sales contracts and negotiations. So just how critical is it to list with a knowledgeable and experience Realtor? See the graphic below and judge for yourself!
