Why a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) Property Is a Better Deal Than a Property Listed with Ogallala Realtors

By selling the school as a For Sale By Owner property, John and I are able to offer the school for a lower price because realtor fees normally cost the owner and the seller about 10% of the final selling price. Further, we can work more creatively with potential buyers to come up with a financing situation that will work for both parties. Working with Ogallala realtors could inhibit this process as real estate in western Nebraska communities like Ogallala involves very little competition. As such, realtors expect to show cookie-cutter homes and to follow a prescribed set of steps during the buying/selling process.
