DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/13 -- 2012 marked a resurgent year for the real estate market. Due to lower interest rates and a more stable economy, buyers regained the confidence they had all but lost when the economy crashed in 2008. If the last five years have taught homeowners anything, it was that they should be more careful with their money. In lieu of this, more and more homeowners are selling their homes without the assistance of a real estate agent, and are instead utilizing Kirk Wickersham's FSBO (For Sale by Owner) System.

Wickersham recently announced that the FSBO System helped the average do-it-yourself home seller save approximately $18,500 in 2012. The system, which was first introduced to the public in 1995, provides clients with the marketing techniques, strategies, tips and support they need to sell their home. In 2012, it was converted for use on the Internet.

Considering that most real estate agents charge a staggering 6% commission, those who have utilized the FSBO System have been able to increase their profit margins by as much as $50,000. The system is protected under a money back guarantee and has enjoyed more than a 95 percent success rate. In addition, statistics show that FSBO System Clients sell their homes in approximately one-third the time of sellers that follow traditional models.

Realizing that homeowners can be intimidated by the prospect of selling their homes without an agent, Wickersham, a former Chair of the Alaska Real Estate Commission, designed the FSBO System with ease of use and flexibility in mind. The system is separated into seven easy to follow, palatable modules, with each one building upon the last. For those interested in trying out the FSBO System, the first module and reference manual can be downloaded for free.

If customers have questions, a licensed real estate professional can be contacted via phone or email during normal business hours. In addition, these agents will provide home sellers with a thorough Comparative Market Analysis, set them up with a customized marketing program and prepare all legal documentation, including purchase agreements and closing documents.

The FSOB System is currently available for purchase from the company's site (www.fsbosystem.com) for a discounted price of $1,995.
