Selling Brooklyn New York Real Estate: FSBO vs. REALTOR®

The ongoing debate as to whether selling your Brooklyn New York real estate is better as a FSBO or with the help of a REALTOR® just got some new ammunition.  The new survey supports past findings that using a REALTOR® is more beneficial to Brooklyn New York real estate sellers.

The survey, conducted by HomeGain.com, a leading online real estate resource that connects home buyers and sellers with real estate professionals, surveyed over 1,000 homeowners.   Here’s what HomeGain’s survey found:

  • 83% of homeowners surveyed said they used a REALTOR® to sell their home and 17% said they tried to sell their home on their own.
  • 59% of homeowners that used a REALTOR® to sell their homes were successful vs. 39% of FSBO’s, reflecting a 50% higher closing rate for those home sellers using a REALTOR®.
  • 81% percent of homeowners that used a REALTOR® to try and sell their homes said they would use a REALTOR® again for their real estate needs.
  • 88% of homeowners who sold their homes using a REALTOR® said they would use a REALTOR® again.
  • 71% of FSBOs who managed to sell their Brooklyn homes on their own said they would try and sell their Brooklyn homes on their own again.
  • 24% of FSBOs eventually enlisted the aid of a REALTOR® to help sell their homes.

  1. Hi Charles. Thanks for the post. What do you think the trend of FSBO will be in the next few years due to how the economy is?

    Keep the posts coming…

  2. Jen thank you for the interest in Brooklyn Real Estate Blog. I think there will be more FSBO’S over all . With more information out there the home owners have access to it may seem easier to do. I still feel a good Realtor® is worth his or her weight in gold , in the Brooklyn real estate selling process.
