I do not know where you are but I am a realtor in Ohio and most realtors in this area will not show a property that is listed with forsalebyowner.com why I am not sure. I will show all houses my job as a realtor is to help my clients find what they are looking for. I have seen many people miss out especially when interest rates were way down because their house was not viewed like listed properties.
Honestly, using a realtor will sell your house faster providing he/she markets it properly and most important prices it right. Pricing the house right is huge. If you do use a realtor don’t let them talk you into pricing it high and do a price reduction, the crucial time for a new listing is the first two weeks that is when every realtor in town will view it on the MLS, and if it is not priced right it will not get much attention. If you do a price reduction you have already lost majority of the qualified buyers.
I would think about it a little more, the only reason you want to FSBO is to save the commission right? You have ask yourself how motivated to sell am I.
