A new home selling study finds “For Sale by Owners” (FSBOs) sell at discount prices, while sellers must do all their own leg work, bear all the costs of the sale of the property. Plus, take all the legal risks/costs associated with the disclosure process.

 The study reveals agents most often achieve higher sales prices for properties than comparable FSBO listings, enough to offset their commission fees, according to an analysis released by “automated valuation model” (AVM) provider Collateral Analytics.
