Why Buy FSBO?

Buying FSBO… WHY? Over on Seattle Afloat (Molly Cartwright and Courtney Cooper’s blog about Seattle houseboats), there was a post about the alarming number of private sales happening with Seattle floating homes.

“Many FSBO buyers have the false misconception that if they go around the listing agent then they will be able to get the home for a discount to the tune of that full listing broker and selling broker commission.  That simply isn’t true.  While the seller may be willing to give you somewhat of a discount, in most cases they will more likely want to pocket the savings of not listing it themselves.  Any discount you could have gotten would easily be beaten by a skilled real estate agent in a negotiation.”  


magnolia homesThe fact is there were more private sales in the last year on Seattle floating homes than pleases me, but the interesting thing about them is that they provide high comps in some cases for our listings.  This proves that overall, there were not a lot of  “deals” happening in FSBO land.  The sellers could have gotten their prices on the open market and the buyers aren’t getting any kind of perceived discount by cutting out the Realtor. The sellers are for the most part pocketing the extra money.

Sellers in Seattle are responsible for paying the commission in full on a sale when they list their homes with a Realtor in most cases. This means that as a buyer, you aren’t having to come up with a buyer’s premium on top of the purchase price for the home.Magnolia Real Estate  The seller is paying for the commissions out of their net proceeds.  There is no point to trying to negotiate it yourself if you are getting the service “free” to you.  The listing agent has a contract with the seller to get paid a certain percentage whether you buy with a broker or not.  Any commission they would have shared with a buyer broker just stays in the listing agent’s pocket contractually.  They are not obligated to give you that commission just because you don’t use a broker.  You don’t have a real estate license and are not entitled to receive commission.   The listing agent may be generous and offer to pay for some of your closing costs, but the liability of taking on two sides of a transaction probably won’t motivate them to do that.

Molly and I are always amazed at some of the commission sharing schemes that unrepresented buyers come up with.  Aside from trying to save money, what is the rationale in doing so?   The only reason to buy FSBO is if you can get a better deal through the seller in a private sale.  If they aren’t going to give you that then  you might as well purchase a listed home and use a broker’s assistance.

Normandy Park Homes For SaleNormandy Park 


Are you looking for an affordable tree lined Seattle suburb close to the water to call home? Normandy Park might be the Seattle suburb you have been looking for. Normandy Park homes offer close access to Seattle, Tacoma, and the Sea-Tac airport, but also an abundance of nature, waterfront, parks, and amenities.  Normandy Park is on the shores of The Puget Sound and offers beautiful views and spaces. Normandy Park is in King County.  

Here is a great intro from the city web page

Welcome to Normandy Park.  Normandy Park is a beautiful waterfront community located along the shores of Puget Sound in King County, with convenient access to downtown Seattle and the SeaTac International Airport.  With approximately 6,500 residents and covering an area of about 2.5 square miles, the community places its highest priorities on maintaining and enhancing its quiet pedestrian-friendly setting and providing a healthy and safe environment in which residents can raise their families.

Normandy Park:  With An Emphasis on “PARK”


An elaborate 100 acre park system was put in place in Normandy Park to preserve the beautiful wooded setting of the city.  There are six large parks in the city boundaries including a couple nature preserves.  In addition, Normandy Park has mini parks and a recreation center.  The Normandy Park Walking Trail Loop System is an incredible asset to the community and consists of three loop trails that are connected. Here is an amazing map of Normandy Park showing you the trails and including additional details of length and intensity: Normandy Park walking trails.

The Cove is by far one of the most incredible community assets we have seen in all of the Seattle Suburbs. It is 18 acres that is collectively owned by 1800 households including about 75% of Normandy Park and a small section of Burien depending on how it was platted out  and deeded in 1929.  If you have a question about whether or not you are in The Cove Boundaries, then you should call them at 206-242-3778 and give them the address. Membership is only $50 a year for beach and grounds and $65 if you want additional access such as tennis.
