For Sale By Owner Benefits

Selling your home can be a lot easier and more beneficial than you think.


The average cost to sell by agent is 6% of the the total sales price.  The Average cost to sell FSBO is $0 - $2,870. While you will have to invest your time and some expenses, upon closing the sale, you will have that extra money in your pocket rather than paying an agent the commission. Remember that working with an agent does not mean that you are off the hook. You will still need to declutter and depersonalize your home, be available for showing or out of the home, provide your listing information and host open houses at your agent’s convenience. Don’t give away tens of thousands of dollars when you don’t have to.

If you have low equity in your home, you will most likely end up paying additional funds out of pocket to an agent. If you have a $500,000 home and you owe $490,000 on the mortgage, you have $10,000 in equity. You will still owe your agent the 6%, or $30,000. You now have lost money on the sale of your home. Sell FSBO and you will get to keep that $10,000 in equity and possibly even make a profit. Being in a declining market or having neighborhood values change can affect you in the same way. Don’t tap into your retirement accounts or take loans, save that percentage and list your home on www.ignitefsbo.com.

In a study by Northwestern University, ‘The Relative Performance of Real Estate Marketing Platforms’, they show that an FSBO property typically only takes 19 days longer than an agent listed property. How many tens of thousands of dollars are worth an extra 19 days to you?


With today’s internet advancements you have access to a multitude of tools that in the past, only agents were able to access. By doing some quick research you will be able to find any facts on your home that you are lacking. It may take some extra work on your part, as does anything worth doing.


Selling your house on your own puts you in the driver's seat.  You get to choose the price point, the verbiage for the listing, schedule your own open house dates and times.

Having your listing on www.ingnitefsbo.com allows you to focus your time and energy on getting potential buyers into your home rather than spending too much time on every listing site. This will also help to maximize your profit.


How will you use the money that you saved by not hiring an agent? Perhaps pay off debt, use it towards improvements on your next home, start a college fund for your children. Whatever it may be, you earned it and will be grateful that it is in your pocket, not someone else’s. No one wants to be taken advantage of by an opportunistic agent, so if you have a vested interest in your property and your hard earned equity, www.ignitefsbo.com may be the perfect option for you.
