Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) October 3, 2007
Fizber.com, a for-sale-by-owner (FSBO) website, has recently made a research on the most popular FSBO markets in the U.S. In the list of top FSBO selling, no-commission states, Florida has an edge over New York, with over 2600 homes for sale by owner currently listed. States like Illinois, New Jersey, and California are also on the rise when it comes to FSBO listings. Close to 25% of all homes sold in the United States are being sold by their owners without commission, and homebuyers are using the Internet more than ever now as a powerful searching tool to find homes in the areas they want to move in.
Going FSBO in Florida is nearly as popular as using a realtor nowadays. FSBO, by the way, means "for sale by owner" and indicates the seller is willing to forgo real estate agents to avoid paying commissions. In short, the buyer gets a better deal and the seller makes more money. The FSBO market is strong throughout Florida, but particularly mention has to be made of Miami.

Such cities as Miami (22% out of 100% FL visits), Tampa (21,4%), Orlando (18,8%), Jacksonville (6%), Boca Raton (3%) getting in total more than 70% of all the Florida visits on FSBO websites leave less than 30% to all other cities and towns in this particular regions. Such a big concentration of interest to FSBO real estate awards Florida start the first place in this industry showing the greatest potential of this state for both buyer and sellers.
