For Sale by Owner (FSBO)

Real Estate Lingo

“For Sale By Owner” (FSBO) is a term used in real estate to describe a property that is being sold directly by the owner without the assistance of a real estate agent or broker. When a homeowner chooses to sell their property FSBO, they take on the responsibilities typically handled by a real estate agent, including marketing the property, negotiating offers, and handling paperwork.

Selling FSBO offers some potential advantages for homeowners, such as saving on real estate agent commissions and having more control over the sales process. However, it also requires the homeowner to invest time and effort into pricing the property appropriately, marketing it effectively, and navigating the complexities of the transaction without professional guidance.

Buyers interested in FSBO properties may need to do their own research and due diligence to ensure they are making an informed decision, as they may not have the benefit of a real estate agent to guide them through the process. Additionally, FSBO transactions can sometimes be more challenging and may require careful negotiation and communication between the buyer and seller to successfully complete the sale.
