FSBO

FSBO stands for "For Sale by Owner". Homeowners engage in FSBO for many reasons. One of the most common is to avoid paying realtor commissions. The average realty commission is 6-percent of the sale price. By eliminating the fee, sellers can reduce the asking price of their property.

Closing fees are still associated with FSBO properties. These can include surveys, appraisals, inspections, homeowners insurance, property taxes, and bank fees. Sellers should review their mortgage note to determine if prepayment penalties are imposed.

Types of Homes for Sale

When looking at homes for sale, there are many options to consider. Are you looking for single family residence home or multi-family real estate such as a duplex or apartment building? Are you looking for a fixer-upper home or a brand new home that requires no additional work?

Many homes for sale are being offered as FSBO (For Sale by Owner), which may or may not be the best choice for you. Others are offered as REO (real estate owned) foreclosure homes, while other homes for sale are offered directly through a real estate agent.
