FSBO vs Realtor: The debate continues

Here is an interesting blog from the Wall Street Journal about a recent survey by the National Association of Realtors that shows For Sale By Owner, or FSBO (pronounced FISBO) homes sell faster. The NAR did not include a break down on states or cities, so we don't know what the experience of home sellers in Denver who are going it alone.

    I sold my home June 2008 FSBO. I listed it on the internet late February 2008, put it on the MLS listing March and I closed the end of June.
    I offered 3% to realtors. So, all in all I am a happy seller.

    I sold my home in Boulder in Nov 2008. I listed under FSBO and MLS (via FSBO) in early September and was under contract by early November. I offered 2% to buyer's agent. I was very happy with FSBO. Only complaint was all the realtors that kept calling me to have me stop FSBO and have them list my property.

    Aside from all the common information realtors have to keep up with, they also need a good website to act as a virtual brochure for their clients.
