Have you been thinking about selling your home, but don’t want to pay thousands in commissions? Or, perhaps, you are searching for a new home online and keep running across the term “FSBO”.

FSBO is a For Sale By Owner listing. This is when the owner is chooses to sell the home themselves without using a real estate agent. FBSO listings are usually not listed on most brokerage websites and are not included on the MLS. Most people that choose to sell their home on their own do so for the financial  implications.

When a home owner sells a home using a real estate agent, they typically wind up paying about 6% of the home sale price in real estate commissions.  These homeowners believe they can sell the home themselves and save a ton of money.  Many of these owners advertise their home locally. Or through newspapers or even just in local housing sections of the newspapers. Or by word-of-mouth to other people they know.

There are some risks and challenges to selling a home as a for sale by owner.  There are also other alternatives to either an FSBO or a real estate agent.
