For Sale By Owner

(June 28, 2015 )

In the event you wish to sell your own home, be sure to consider these facts first:

Inviting Strangers Into Your Home: When advertising your home on FSBO websites you risk having strangers that may not have a realtor representing them as well as you not having a realtor to represent you to be there during the showings.

Exposure:  FSBO websites are available when selling your own home but most buyers don't know they exist. The majority of buyers search MLS-based websites like Realtor.ca or REW.ca. 

Legal liability: Realtors are insured in the event that a lawsuit arises due to buyer’s dissatisfaction usually caused by misrepresentation and/or non-disclosure. If such issues come up, the FSBO seller would be personally liable. Fact: Even Realtors are not advised to sell their own properties as they are not protected by their insurance.
