PROPERTY FOR SALE BY OWNER
According 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.
