If you have decided to become for sale by owner real estate without a realtor, FSBO signs should be used.

The average home seller can save up to $15,000 selling their home for sale by owner (FSBO) based on the US average sales price of $250,000.
Yes we are convenient, but if I were to send you a title commitment or a simple 1-4 Residential Resale contract with a seller’s temporary leaseback and the offer being contingent on the sale of another property which by the way has three siblings as heirs to the property, etc….
I have personally watched home sellers go into a home sale attempt and seen the amount of time that they spend each Saturday and or Sunday hosting open houses where one prospect showed up. I have watched them spend hundreds of dollars on newspaper advertising that brought calls to a phone number that they could not answer or get back to for hours and hours (where the prospective buyer moved on to another property because they became impatient) As todays buyers do.
For Sale By Owner, is a real estate term which describes the process wherein a property is offered for sale directly by its owner and without that owner requiring the assistance of a a real estate broker, which implies that no real estate commission is paid for the process.
The catch being, they do require you use their escrow company which is where their 2,000 dollar profit comes in. What it is then required on your end is hosting and promoting your own open houses (via a for sale sign in the front yard and flyers if you want (we didn’t even do the latter) and only held two open houses before we had a buyer come in with full asking price) but ended up selling after another buyer’s escrow fell through.
