PROPERTY FOR SALE BY OWNER

Owner talking with coupleAccording to a profile of home buyers and sellers from the National Association of Realtors, up to 17% of homes are currently sold FSBO.  FSBO is an acronym for “For Sale by Owner,” in other words a sale which takes place without the assistance of a real estate agent.

Real estate continues to be one of the best investments in the world, and these days a growing number of home owners have the confidence to act as their own agents in the sale of property.  Security Settlement Services, Inc. represents purchasers and sellers in all phases of a real estate transaction, from negotiating the purchase agreement to the closing.

While it is possible to save the fees traditionally charged by real estate agents, the responsibilities of the agents remain.  A real estate sales contract or purchase agreement is still necessary, and should take into account contingencies such as financing, home inspection, radon inspection, termite inspection, clear title requirements, and more.  “Contingency” means that unless a particular requirement of the contract is met, the purchase cannot go through.  A financing contingency, for example, may set timelines for the purchaser to have a fully approved loan within so many days of contract ratification.
