Selling a house these days is a wee bit more than having a sign nailed to a tree out front or even a couple of brochures in a plastic box out front. There was a time when this worked - even for real estate agents!
For some, the only reason to choose to go the For Sale By Owner route simply because they are upside down or short of funds to sell and include a real estate professional services fee.
Some choose the fizzbo route because they have done it before and it worked for them. If one has the experience, knowledge and time to go the FSBO route, I applaud them.
If one is upside down then perhaps a short sale is an option. There are real estate agents available to assist with this process. And the nice thing about this is the lender pays the selling costs including the real estate agents.
It has been well documented that 85% of FSBOs eventually sell their house or condo through a real estate agent. For the 15% who succeed, well done! [If you are a FSBO in Viera, Suntree or Rockledge and would like some free help, call me!]
If a short sale is a possibility or your have tried the FSBO route and need help, call me at 321-693-3850 or email me.
Sometimes, you must "fail" to learn that a real estate agent may be the answer!
