    Is FSBO Worth Saving The Realtor Commission? | Fridays with Fred


    During my years as an Orange County Realtor I’ve met many homeowners who told me that they wanted to sell their homes themselves so they could save money by not paying the Realtor commission.

    Even though it may seem like a good idea to choose the For Sale by Owner (FSBO) Option, it’s not always the right idea, especially when you consider these reasons:

    Focus On Your Net Profit and Not the Commission

    Your goal as a homeowner should be to sell your home for the most money possible, or the highest net profit you can get from your home, instead of just focusing on the commission, which you will pay the Realtor in the end.

    By working with an experienced Realtor like Fred Sed & Associates you will be working with a team of professionals who can help you to sell your home for the highest profit because our team is skilled at all of the aspects of selling a home so you can save the time, money and hassle of having to do it all yourself.

    Few For Sale By Owners Are Actually Successful

    Did you know that only 2% of homeowners across the United States who choose the For Sale by Owner option are actually successful?

    Thanks to a recent survey from the National Association of Realtors we know that most homeowners eventually choose a Realtor to sell their home after they try to sell their homes on their own.

    Why Do Most Homeowners Choose A Realtor?

    In 2014 most homeowners in Orange County choose a Realtor to sell their homes because the average homeowner isn’t prepared for the wide variety of responsibilities which come with selling a home like:

    • Scheduling appointments for people to see the home.
    • Staging the home to sell.
    • Marketing the home online and offline.
    • Negotiating with buyers.
    • Reviewing contracts.
    • Selling the home for the price they really want to sell it for.

    Selling a home can be a complicated experience that’s why you need a team of experienced professionals on your side to help you sell your home in any Real Estate market for the most money possible.
