Allows for Direct Communication A major benefit of FSBO is the direct communication that occurs between both parties. By communicating directly with the buyer, you can ensure that nothing is lost in translation, as the conversation does not have to go through any middle-men. This aspect of the process can often result in things moving smoother and quicker, compared to speaking through a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent. The downside to this is that most buyers will hire an agent to work for them on their behalf, meaning that you will be relying on your own expertise to work with a professional. Not only might you end up selling your house for less money, but you also have the potential to open yourself up to legal issues or other problems by not having the contract vetted by an experienced attorney.
