REALTOR® vs. For Sale By Owner

Did you know that only about ten percent of people try to sell their own homes? In fact, the total number of FSBO property sales has fallen from 20 to just nine percent in the past decade. There's a reason for this. According to the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), the average For Sale By Owner home sells for $40,100 less than a home listed by an agent ($174,900 compared to $215,000).
