The main reason that most FSBO's consider selling a home themselves is that they think they'll save the commission. Most Buyers go to a FSBO to do the same thing. It's not possible for the two opposite parties to "save the commission." There is a substantial increase in buyer prospects by listing the property with a knowledgeable Realtor, which can produce a better net price for the owner. If that's the end goal, why encounter a reduced number of prospective buyers and spend the time and energies to show the property? A reputable, knowledgeable Realtor can often assist in finding options for a prospect that most sellers would have no knowledge of.
