The 19% FSBO statistics (For Sale By Owner) dropped to 9% last year. The reason home owners list and sell property on their own is because of the perception that they will save on the commission. Fact is, using a reputable reliable real estate agent will actually give them more money in their pocket.
Unless the homeowner is well versed in real estate, the fact that most transactions involve at least one realtor, means that the home owner operating as a FSBO is on opposite sides from the realtor representing the buyer.
Most home sellers are better off listing with an agent who will represent their interests in the transaction, and see that the buyer gets to the closing table and that keys and funds actually change hands.
