I’m an agent in Nashville.
I think I mentioned it a few times here before, but I support FSBO if they know what they are doing. Investor who has made deals before? By all means, go ahead.
The issue really is the inexperienced client that has “x value” in mind and doesn’t understand the market. Or the actual work needed to complete the transaction. A lot of people think of agents as human search engines, where the work ends when you find a home to look at. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
