Survey: FSBOs Sell For $45,000 Less!
Of all the findings of a recent survey of Florida Home Buyers and Sellers, here is one you can take to the bank: Sellers who chose to sell their home on their own fetched $45,000 less than if they would have used a real estate profesional. To derive this figure, researchers at NAR (The National Association of Realtors) compared the median price of a FSBO (for sale by owner $210,000) to the median price of a home listed by a real estate professional ($255,000). Perhaps this explains another survey result: 67% sellers relied on a real estate professional to sell their home while 29% chose to go it alone. Other survey results:
* Buyers searched for a median of two weeks on their own before contacting a real estate agent.
* Buyers ranked reputation and knowledge of the neighborhood as the most important factors inchoosing a real estate professional.
* 36% of sellers used the same agent for their home purchase.
* First impressions make a big difference: 71% of sellers contacted only one real estate professional before slecting their listing agent.
