Homesellers Using a REALTOR
Images for this post are temporaraly unavailable.
HomeGain surveyed both For-Sale-By-Owners (FSBOs) and via Realtors® to gauge both success and satisfaction rates of the two groups in selling their homes. Those offered via a Realtor® had a 50 percent greater success rate at selling their homes, and 81 percent of those that used a Realtor indicated they would use a Realtor again.
In the survey of more than 1,000 homesellers during the survey from February 7th to February 15th, 2010, 39 percent of the homeowners going the FSBO route were successful in selling their home versus 59 percent of those using a Realtor.
One-quarter of the homeowners that commenced on a FSBO track ended up listing with a Realtor to sell their home.
