FSBO Cutting into Realtor Commissions

This is from today's NY Times. The article is about a couple of entrepreneurs from Wisconsin that started their own FSBO web site. I'm seeing lots of FSBO signs on lawns at the Jersey Shore. I wonder what the historical percentage of FSBO signs to Realtor signs is considered normal in New Jersey.

"MADISON, Wis. - Across the country, the National Association of Realtors and the 6 percent commission that most of its members charge to sell a house are under assault by government officials, consumer advocates, lawyers and ambitious entrepreneurs. But the most effective challenge so far emanates from a spare bedroom in the modest home here of Christie Miller."

Realtors try to convince the public that only they can sell your home. I sold without a in 2004 with no problems at all. The key is to get a good real estate attorney for the contracts and closing. My attorney fees were $550- alot less than a realtor's commission and I believe he had more expertise than a realtor.

Hi - I was searching for blogs about associations and found yours. Reason I was searching for associations is I have one and I'm looking for ways people run theirs.

Signage, though quite fundamental in nature, plays an important role in the home selling process, the yard sign should be two-sided, easy to read, and look great. defaced or worm signs can negatively impact curb appeal.
