By far the biggest reason sellers decide to sell their home Ohio For Sale by Owner (Ohio FSBO) rather than through a real estate agent is to avoid paying those hefty commissions at closing. On the other hand, selling Ohio For Sale by Owner (Ohio FSBO) requires the seller to all their own marketing. That is by far the biggest disadvantage to the Ohio For Sale by Owner (Ohio FSBO).
HOW DOES THE MLS BENEFIT THE SELLER?
An Ohio MLS (Multiple Listing Service) is a huge database of properties listed for sale used by real estate agents to share their listings with each other. Sellers can’t post their home directly to an Ohio MLS themselves, because access to this database is limited to licensed agents and brokers who pay regular dues for membership.
Statistics show that properties listed on an Ohio MLS sell faster and for more money than Ohio For Sale by Owner (Ohio FSBO) properties.
How can a seller get access to the largest number of buyers? By placing a sign in the yard and an ad on Zillow or social media? OR by putting their property information into a database that is accessed by ALL the licensed agents and brokers in the area? An Ohio MLS feeds data directly to hundreds of websites nationally including Realtor.com, Zillow and Trulia as well as local Realtor websites like RE/MAX, Century 21 and Keller Williams. An Ohio MLS exposes a property to literally thousands of potential buyers everyday. No other form of marketing or advertising can give a property for sale more exposure than being listed on an Ohio MLS.
