Don't Even Think About It: Why You Should Not Sell Your Home Yourself FSBO

Don't Miss this weeks radio show on 970AM WGTK.  I will be talking about why you should not try to sell your home yourself.  The method most used to sell a home has changed in recent years. A higher share of sellers are relying on the expertise of real estate agents and brokers to sell their home, rather than trying other methods.  Here are a few statisics.

  • From 1991 to 2011 the share of home sellers who used a real estate agent or broker to sell their home increased from 77 percent to 87 percent.
  • Over the same time period, the share of sellers who sold their home as a FSBO (For-Sale-By-Owner) decreased from 19 percent to 10 percent.
  • Sellers use real estate professionals to help them sell their home in a reasonable timeframe, to market their home to potential buyers, and to price the home competitively.

Hope you tune in.  We are on the air every Saturday from 10-11AM.  WWW.970WGTK.COM
