" good luck selling your home fsbo in this market. Only 2% of fsbo actually sell." ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Probably more unsubstantiated BS.Saul, what market are you referring to? Yours, or the market in general? If it's just yours, care to share with us some actual references to substantiate your post?If you mean the market in general, going by the NAR's own statistics 20% of the market in 2009 was comprised of sellers who chose not to use a full service agent. Nine percent of sellers chose limited services, which may include a discount brokerage, and 11 percent used minimal service, by simply listing a property on a multiple listing service. Granted, that 20% aren't recognized as FSBOs by the NAR, but try to tell that 11% that they aren't FSBOs.If you're stating that 98% of FSBOs fail, that means that the 2% that succeeded represented at least 11% of the total sales. That would mean that the total number of those starting out as FSBOs would have been over five times all the sales, full service and whatever. If you mean 98% fail that aren't on the MLS, do you actually waste your time driving around looking for FSBO signs, and monitoring the failure rate? Give me a break. You may get by with posting BS on other sites, but it's not going to happen here without being challenged.BTW, welcome to Zillow.........I think.
