What is FSBO?
FSBO is shorthand for “For Sale By Owner.” The term is used to identify property, usually homes, which are sold by the owner with or without help from a real estate agent. Typically, owners advertise their properties by means of websites, classified ads, word of mouth, and other means.
REASONS WHY LISTING YOUR HOME WITH PASSPORTREALTY.com MAKES SENSE.
The Internet is how real estate is sold today

One of the major advantages of selling a home for sale by owner is that you can set your schedule. You know when potential buyers will be coming to check out the place, and can allot time to prepare accordingly. There is no need to leave your own home every time an agent wants to show it. You no longer have to make sure the house looks in “show condition” at all times. Even better, when a prospective buyer makes an offer, there is no back-and-forth between agents. An agreement can usually be reached quickly and easily between the FSBO seller and the buyer.
You’re the ideal agent
Who knows your home better then you? When showcasing your house to a prospective buyer, you know what the highlights are, whether it’s the perfectly finished basement or the beautiful landscaping in the backyard. You also know what needs to be downplayed much more than an agent who is not so familiar with the place. Remember, a well maintained, fairly priced home will virtually sell itself. It’s your job to provide the additional information.
You’re in charge
Selling FSBO means there is no agent telling you what to do. You’re in control of all major decisions, including where and how to advertise, scheduling showings at your convenience, and even taking your home off the market for a time if necessary. Most importantly, you can deal with potential buyers yourself. There is none of the frustration that can result when a seller feels that the agent is “not doing enough.” And you aren’t obligated to a three, six, or 12-month contract—you make the rules!
Why pay commission?
There’s no way around it: whenever you work with an agent they get a cut of your profits. Calculate 5-6% of what you think your property is worth. With PassportRealty.com that commission gets cut in half (2-3%). The bottom line is Realtors usually have Buyers and they have them Now. With PassportRealty.com you have the Best of Both Worlds: you can sell it yourself or a Realtor can sell it and help you sell it faster.
When you decide to list your home with PassportRealty.com chances are you will see what other homes are selling for and price yours accordingly. Remember Realtors still sell over 70% of all homes. Remember PassportRealty.com just cut the commission in half and you can either pocket that money or sell your home more quickly by lowering the price by the commission you are saving. The only reason a house does not sell is because it is overpriced; Price it right from the beginning.
