FSBO Woes: Why It's So Hard to Sell Your Own
Granted, some people are
able to sell their own homes without the services of
a real estate agent. Some of these successful
do-it-yourselfers are very experienced home sellers.
Others are transferring ownership of their home to a
child, a coworker or a tenant who's already living
in the home. These circumstances are the exception,
not the norm, however.
For most people, a
for-sale-by-owner (FSBO) transaction simply isn't in
the cards. Here are five reasons why.
FSBOs can't list their home in the MLS. FSBOs aren't
permitted to put their home in the multiple listing
service (MLS) because these industry membership
organizations are open only to licensed real estate
brokers and agents. FSBOs are also locked out of
many home search engines and Web sites, including
the gigantic Realtor.com. Sure, a determined FSBO
can put a for-sale sign in his or her front yard and
run a tiny advertisement in the local newspaper, but
the home won't receive nearly as much exposure as it
would through the MLS.
2. Agents won't show
FSBO homes. In a typical home sale, the buyer's
agent receives a percentage of the commission that
the seller pays the listing agent. Without a listing
agreement, there's no guarantee that the buyer's
agent will be compensated for his or her services,
unless the buyer has signed a buyer's brokerage
agreement that specifically provides for such
compensation. Even if a FSBO offers to pay the
buyer's side of the commission, most agents won't
want to go through a transaction with an
unsophisticated self-represented seller across the
table. That means the pool of potential buyers for
FSBO homes is limited primarily to unrepresented and
probably unqualified prospects.
usually overprice their home. Like most homeowners,
most FSBOs honestly believe their own home is worth
more than comparable homes in the same neighborhood.
Usually, they're wrong. A real estate agent can
provide an update on market conditions, an
assessment of the likely selling price of the home
and tips for improving the home's buyer appeal.
Overpricing a for-sale home is a sure way to deter
4. Buyers will feel
intimidated. Potential buyers will spend less time
in a for-sale home if the owner is present during
the showing, and they'll be shy about discussing its
pluses and minuses with their own agent if the owner
is within earshot. Buyers will also be less inclined
to make an offer if they know they'll be negotiating
directly with the seller. Having an agent on each
side creates an effective emotional buffer between
the seller and buyer.
5. FSBOs are likely to
stumble into legal trouble. Real estate transactions
are fraught with potential liability for unwary
sellers, particularly in states that have extensive
disclosure requirements. A FSBO who overlooks even
one required form or legally mandated disclosure
could face a protracted and expensive buyer lawsuit
after the transaction closes.>
