One month ago today, we saw a "FSBO" sign in a neighborhood that we have been watching. We called the owners, looked at it the same day, and 7 days later we jointly signed a contract at the owner's dining room table. We are on track to close in late July. Agree with the previous post. The sale didn't close in 5 days, but the contract signing was pretty close to that, everything else (mortgage approval, appraisal, home inspection, etc., etc.) is going along very smoothly.

It has been so easy for both us and the sellers, we can't imagine what value added an agent would bring to the table for 6%.
