By: Abhinav Sidana
Although the sale of FSBO in real estate market is less than 20 percent, however if you are owner of a house and want to sell your property through FSBO, it might be a good option for you. In real estate market the majority of property is sold through agents and both the seller and buyer have to pay a hefty commissions on the deal.

Actually sometimes as an FSBO house owner, you might find it difficult to sell your house to the buyers if you are unable to list your house at the right site. Most of the time an FSBO house owner just put for sale board in front of the house and it is really difficult to attract the prospective buyers.

The other mistakes an FSBO property owner commits when he or she put the sale listing at various places in his/her locality such as community centers, schools, parks etc. Actually the property listing should be done at certain websites. These websites might attract the potential buyers.

Most of the time FSBO property do not get proper price and you as an owner go to real estate agent to sale your property. The advantage of approaching real estate agents is that you get your property sold in less time as these agents already have a number of potential customers and therefore don't take more times. Further as your deal is quickly finalized, you save a lot of money as mortgage installment and other repair and maintenance expenses.

The other advantage of real estate market is that, you generally need not worry about the price negotiations as the real estate agents do on your behalf with the buyer, but at the same time you should ensure that you get the bottom line you have fixed for your property. However, the main disadvantage is that for selling your property you have to pay hefty commission to real estate agents.

Even then the FSBO property owner have to pay large amount as commission to the real estate agents, above 90% of FSBO owners wants to sell their next house through real estate agents. The major reason of it is that most of the owners are not aware about the proper listing of house and the paper works required to complete the transfer of house. But now days FSBO is the best way to sell you house without commission.
