Selling your own home is the best way to save on paying upwards of 5%-6% of your homes sales price to a traditional real estate brokerage.
Don’t limit the exposure of your home by using a FSBO website.
Generally speaking, if you are looking to save on paying a real estate sales commission, you can either list it on one of several For Sale By Owner websites or you can list your home on your states Multiple Listing Service. MLS is a large database of properties shared by and between all real estate agents and brokerages in your region.
If you list your home on a FSBO website your home will only get noticed by those who are searching this particular website. Studies show that most people do not search For Sale By Owner websites to find their next home. Today’s consumers tend to start their home search by first scanning active MLS listings on the popular real estate search sites as well as brokerage websites. This isn’t to say buyer’s don’t look for homes on FSBO websites because they do, but its a last resort when they can’t find anything worthwhile on the popular real estate search sites.
