For Sale by Owner

One of the most popular reasons why homeowners choose to sell their house without the assistance of an agent is to avoid paying an agent’s commission. In Canada the agent’s fee typically makes up 5-6% of the selling price of the property.

When a home owner decides to sell their home without a real estate agent and a buyer who is not working with an agent wants to buy the home, the seller pays no commission because no real estate agents are involved.

If a buyer who is represented by an agent is interested in a FSBO home, that buyer’s agent may request the owner pay him or her a commission, or finder’s fee, for bringing the buyer. The seller may choose to either pay the fee or refuse. The seller is not legally obligated to pay any commission. If no agreement is in place with either the home buyer or the owner of the FSBO property, the buyer’s agent may not necessarily be compensated in the transaction, or may be compensated by the buyer.
