Since we’re in such a hot market, many sellers are choosing to sell their homes on their own. These listings are known as for-sale-by-owner (FSBO), and they create a lot of great opportunities for buyers. Today we’ll be talking about the different benefits created by FSBO listings, as well as how we help buyers secure FSBO homes.
First of all, FSBOs see much less competition because many agents simply don’t want to deal with these listings. Buyers also get more inventory to choose from, as they can search for both on-market and off-market listings. Perhaps the biggest advantage you have is that most FSBO sellers are inexperienced negotiators, so you can end up securing an incredible deal.
Recently, we helped some buyers put in a few different offers, but none of them were accepted. As we were driving around with one client, though, we saw a FSBO home. They liked it, and after two showings, they were ready to make an offer. We called up the sellers and told them our offer, but we also told them about the processes we have in place that ensure we get to the closing table. Needless to say, the offer was accepted.
You want an agent who’s willing to do the extra legwork. Whether you’re looking for a FSBO listing or want to brave the competitive market, we’re here to help you find and secure the home of your dreams. If you have any questions or would like more information, feel free to reach out to us. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
