Yes,  I know how to.

However, the title of your thread looks as if it had the thoughts caught off mid sentence.  Care to expand?

Good morning!

I'd love to know how a FSBO company works...is it really a FSBO then?

Hi Amy,
Yes it works well. We advertise properties to buyers through many avenues. There are two levels of FSBO we work with. The first is advertising on our site which is very buyer (sans agent) active. We list your house on our site  until you sell and when you do there are no commissions. We are also a lisenced broker so we have all the paper work you will need as well as showing advice etc.... All for no commission. Second we offer MLS as well which reaches Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow and about a dozen other local real estate sites. The MLS route does entail offering a commission to the buyer agent if there is an agent, but you decide what you want to offer. We find the max is two percent through the MLS which will gain you many buyer inquiries as well as keep your commission down by 3 to 4 percent. Saving a lot of money.

The best info I've seen on doing FSBO is a blog by Rockinblu:

Thinking about doing fsbo

Obviously, one can post on Zillow and numerous other sites without paying any advertising fee!

Getting on the MLS takes paying a flat fee to a broker; typically in the $500 range, but some offer that service for much much less, and some take your money and don't bother posting your listing in the MLS.

The flat fee should also include a Sepra Lock Box for agent access to your home, but many flat fee brokers do not offer that.

Don't get scammed by flat fee brokers and website adverting companies.

And if it is a site no one looks at; it doesn't matter how many paid advertisements they have.
