Studies show that most homeowners list their home themselves to save the commission costs. However, most sellers will end up paying a buyers agent 3% commission for bringing the buyer, saving a maximum 3% of the sales price while the typical FSBO home sold for $190,000 compared to $249,000 for agent-assisted home sales in 2017. The FSBO option has been decreasing over the years with only 8% of homes sold by the owner in 2017.
