Why "For Sale By Owner"?

What would you do with an extra $5,000, $10,000, $15,000 or even $20,000?  Maybe a tropical cruise, a Paris vacation, a new ski boat for your lake home, a riding lawn mower for your new large lawn,  your kids college education, help funding your retirement?

These things are within your grasp when you decide to list your home "For Sale By Owner" instead of listing it with a realtor.

A realtor will traditionally charge you 6% to list your home.  At closing the listing agent normally gets 3% and the buyer's agent normally gets 3%.

Multiply your estimated sales price by 6% to see how much you save if you deal directly with a buyer (without any realtor involvement). (Example: $200,000 X 6% = $12,000 savings!)  Multiply your estimated sales price by 3% to see how much you can save by listing your home "by owner" and still paying a buyer's agent 3%.  (Example: $200,000 X 3% = $6,000 savings!)

By going "for sale by owner" you avoid paying 3% to the listing broker.   You can still encourage buyer's agents to show your home by putting it on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and being willing to pay the buyer's agent 2.5-3% at closing.

Do you have to do more work?  Sure you do!  You must determine a competitive price,  be available to show your home to prospective buyers (a lockbox makes this effortless!), and be willing to deal directly with the buyer to negotiate the sale.   But you won't be alone - we are available to help you every step of the way!
