Since caronavirus-19, minimizing physical proximity has changed the nature of many home selling and buying activities. Savy Realtors® are using “virtual” technology for everything from “Open House” to buyer showings. And that’s the new “normal”. A FSBO seller without the technical ability to provide such “access” to their property is going to have great difficulties.
Fortunately for the FSBO, it’s still true, when a FSBO puts up a sign, in the yard or online … the phone begins to ring rather quickly … calls from real estate agents looking to obtain the listing. It’s even more important now that the FSBO use a very carefully selected Realtor®, and forget about FSBO.
And that’s just the beginning of the “no fun”. Really irritating is someone from the neighborhood with a property similar to yours wanting to take a look before listing their property. Fortunately, there aren’t many of these nowadays.
It’s also still true, in setting their max price, “real” buyers will take the common 6% commission right off what they determined to be the market. Thus, the few successful FSBO sellers go through all the work, irritations, and frustrations, and take longer for zero ($0) benefit … in fact, commonly netting less.
The days of purely emotional buying are gone. Every buyer coming through the door is going to demand knowing a LOT of facts … and if the “facts” you give them prove later, even years later, to be false and significant, you could well be headed for a lawsuit. See this critical SPDS discussion.
