For Sale By Owner
In the real estate industry, a home or property that is “For Sale by Owner” is a property offered for sale without the assistance of a real estate agent or broker. The acronym for the term, FSBO, pronounced “fizbo,” is the term most commonly associated with For Sale by Owner properties. Depending on where you live or the current condition of the market, real estate brokers typically earn a six to seven percent commission on the sales price of residential real estate. In most cases, the incentive for a seller to list a home FSBO is to pocket this additional money. That could mean profit from $3,000 to $7,000 for every $100,000 of the sales price, and to some that can be a substantial incentive for trying to go it alone.
