A quick definition of for sale by owner:

For sale by owner means selling a property without the help of a real estate agent. This is done to avoid paying commissions, but it can be difficult and time-consuming. The seller must handle everything, including marketing, showings, negotiations, and paperwork. However, sellers who do not use an agent generally make less money on the sale. To sell without an agent, the seller must research the sale process, properly value their property, use effective marketing strategies, and negotiate the best terms for the sale.

A more thorough explanation:

For sale by owner, also known as FSBO or “fizzbo”, is a term used in real estate to describe the process of selling a property without the involvement of a real estate agent. This means that the seller personally handles every step of the sale, from marketing to negotiations to paperwork.

The most common reason for selling a property without an agent is to avoid paying commissions. However, this can be a difficult and time-consuming process, as sellers must take on all the responsibilities that an agent would normally handle.

Examples of tasks that a seller must handle when selling a property without an agent include:

  • Marketing the property to potential buyers
  • Showcasing the property to potential buyers
  • Negotiating the terms of the sale
  • Handling all financial and legal paperwork

While selling a property without an agent can save money on commissions, it can also result in a lower sale price. This is because agents have experience and knowledge of the real estate market, which can help them price a property correctly and negotiate the best terms for the seller.

If you are considering selling a property without an agent, it is important to research and understand the sale process in your area, how to properly value your property, effective marketing strategies, and how to negotiate the best terms for the sale.

John wants to sell his house without using a real estate agent. He must take on all the responsibilities of selling the house himself, including marketing the property, showing it to potential buyers, negotiating the terms of the sale, and handling all the paperwork.

Sarah is selling her condo without an agent to save money on commissions. However, she must research the real estate market in her area, properly value her property, and negotiate the best terms for the sale to ensure she gets the best price possible.

These examples illustrate the definition of for sale by owner, which is the process of selling a property without the involvement of a real estate agent. The examples also highlight the challenges and responsibilities that come with selling a property without an agent, including marketing, negotiations, and paperwork.

No more living in regret abt skipping them the one year they decide to like splitters
Bro, it's not a hail mary. You have a 180.
@sufferchildrensmiths: Also, you're making me more hopeful (though I still want to keep my expectations low at this point). For we do have a fair amount in common besides the 1/22 II date. We both submitted on the same date, we have the same GPA, and we both have a grad degree.
I'm at 15/15, so I'm going to stop talking now. :)
Good luck, I am glad hope has returned
sup everybody
hello lsd.law user hotwhale

Silly question: Is the standard procedure for withdrawing an acceptance/waitlist to simply email the admissions department/primary contact?
@FranticSpiffySwallow: You'll get into a top school
some reverse-splitter will counteract your GPA
if your school does not do out of 4.3, then you have nothing to worry about. :)
For a scholarship that has an additional essay do yall think the scholarship committee reads your full app to that school plus the extra essay or just the extra essay? Trying to figure out if things would be too repetitive
