HOOVER: 9 things FSBO companies don't want you to know
1. They charge upfront (in most cases thousands). Agents don't. When it comes down to it, listing with an agent shouldn't cost you a cent. Agents don't charge upfront, we only charge when results are provided. This gives you an advantage in more than one way. On the other hand I have heard of individuals paying upwards of $2000 upfront just for a sign and a spot on a website, only to end up having their house listed and sold by an agent.
