Do Sellers Make More Money When Selling FSBO?

When selling FSBO, home sellers will save money that would have gone toward paying the real estate agent's commission. On average, the typical listing agent commission is 2.7% of the sale price.

On the other hand, the real estate industry will argue that these savings are offset by selling the house for a lower price than might be earned by using an agent to get the additional exposure and professional negotiation of the price, terms, and request for repairs.
