In the long run, FSBO sellers never “save” the payment. Rather, they struggle to win the commission by way of doing a good agent’s job. In accomplishing this, they devote their money along with time to carry out, as best they are able to, the duties of an real estate agent. Those jobs include uncovering the home by way of marketing, introducing the home to all buyers, building a sense of buyer emergency in order to induce an offer, arranging home inspections, handling qualification assessments with the bank, supervising fixes, and assisting the closing of the deal.
