FAQ


What is FSBO System?

In 1995, Alaska attorney and real estate broker Kirk Wickersham created a complete, integrated home-selling technology called FSBO System. Since then we’ve helped thousands of clients sell their home on their own and save the entire 6% agent commission. Every year, through good markets and bad, our average client has outperformed the average local agent listing in terms of days on market and chance of success. In 2015 our average client made an extra $16,092 compared to paying a six percent agent commission. See our Client Statistics.

What about Internet advertising for my home?

As part of our service, FSBO System will use a broker in your local area to list your home on MLS without you offering anything to a buyer’s agent. From there it is picked up by Realtor.com and other listing sites. This service is included in the low FSBO System fee! That’s all the Internet advertising you need.

What about legal compliance?

He’s also a real estate broker with over 35 years’ experience. Our legal forms are clear, written in plain English, and fair.  In thousands of transactions since 1995, not one client has ever been sued or even threatened with a lawsuit. That’s an enviable record.
