Miami, FL Real Estate Expert Explains 'For Sale By Owner' Option.

Alan Fishman, a real estate expert, has offered complete real estate services to both buyers and sellers across the Miami, Fla. area. In today's real estate environment, many homeowners are considering selling their homes without the assistance of an agent. Such a trend drew a response from Mr. Fishman who understands the difficulty in paying a listing agent the typical six-percent fee from a home sale, but believes this option may present another set of difficulties.

"For Sale By Owner (FSBO), is a way to sell a home without a professional real estate agent or broker," Fishman explained. "The idea behind FSBO is that by selling your home without an agent, you avoid paying an agents' commission. But only about 10-percent of sellers who decide to do FSBO are successful and it doesn't always translate to a cost savings. For example, FSBO sellers often accept a lower price for a home than desired in order to complete a transaction."

Alan Fishman has more than two decades of experience in sales and understands the current real estate market and challenges it presents. He specializes in helping clients buy and sell homes in Miami—specifically Coral Gables and Aventura—and specializes in condos and web listings to showcase Florida real estate online.
