"Success comes from doing ordinary things extraordinarily well"

Jim Rohn

I am committed to providing you with the finest quality real estate service available.

Your satisfaction is my success!!

For Sale by Owner (FSBO) is a way of selling your home without the use of a professional real estate agent or broker. The idea behind FSBO is that by selling your home yourself, you save on paying the commission.



About 10% of sellers who decide to sell by owner are successful. Not all of them end up saving themselves money. Many end up accepting a lower price for their home than they would with an agent.



There are some other issues to think about as well:

  1. Can you afford to make selling your home your full time job?
  2. Do you have the time and capital to spend on the marketing, advertising, inspections, paperwork, phone calls, showings, negotiations, and problems that arise when any home is sold?
  3. Do you have the information and ability to ask difficult questions about the financial qualifications of the prospective buyers?
  4. Can you answer buyer objections and criticisms without getting emotionally involved?


Selling with an agent not only saves you what's listed above, but also has other advantages.

  • An agent can get your home listed in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and other popular websites where not only homebuyers but also other agents can easily find it.
  • Professional real estate agents also have an extensive network that allows them to more easily find a buyer.


Also consider a buyer's frame of mind. With agents, the buyer feels they have someone representing them and ensuring the purchase is a good one. Howard Hanna homes have money-back guarantees and other programs that appeal to a buyer -- all at no cost to them.



Remember that homes sold through a professional agent sell on average at a 9.5% rate higher than owner-sold homes.
