For Sale By Owner (FSBOs) in Brevard County

I have always admired the For Sale By Owner (FSBO) seller for several reasons.  As a whole FSBOs are some of the most determined sellers I have ever seen.

If folks who list their homes for sale with real estate agents had just half the energy most FSBOs possess, selling would be much easier - and possibly a bit faster!

I try to stop by FSBO open houses (and occasionally knock on the FSBO door while driving around Viera and Rockledge) whenever I have a chance.

I do not approach the FSBO seller as if I am there to save them from themselves..
No, I only stop to find out about the property should I have a buyer looking. I also offer any advice or suggestions if they ask!

[Most FSBO sellers are willing to pay a real estate commission if a buyer comes to them through the real estate agent even if it is not in the MLS!]

I always wish FSBOs luck. I know that even in the boom time of a few years ago only about 15% of  FSBO succeed this 85% will call on a real estate agent later.  I want to be in the running!
