Hire a Real Estate agent, or sell a home by yourself? That's why we ask, is FSBO a good or bad idea?
11 reasons why For Sale By Owner is a terrible idea.
Others say we no longer need an agent involved in the process. What do you think? Here are some reasons why you shouldn't sell your Margate or Ventnor home using FSBO:
- FSBOs are more costly than homeowners realize -- including lower sales prices and hidden fees. Selling a home is also a fairly complicated transaction -- sellers and buyers alike can get burned with FSBOs. And time costs money -- a FSBO could takes longer to sell.
- Scams happen
- Liability is all on the seller
- Paperwork is daunting
- Sellers can get stuck in a bad deal
- FSBOs sell for less
