Both transactions were handled by McLin Burnsed and Peninsula Title and our sale was done long distance. Buying and selling TV property FSBO is easy peasy. Simply contact McLin Burnsed and they will email you a 17 binding contract for you and the buyer to fill out and they take it from there. My original post was simply inquiring about whether anyone knew of some service that would help since we are not down there right now.

My comment was NOT based on any "assumption." It was based on your comments which reeked of inexperience and lack of knowledge.

It is quite unfair to ask a neighbor or friend to take on the responsibility of showing your house or handling anything concerning the potential sale of your house. What if something is stolen, broken or . . . . . who knows what??? Perhaps they aren't giving the right answer to a question and a potential buyer is turned off by what they say?

I still stand by what I've said. Hire a Realtor and pay the commission. You'll get what you pay for.

As a retired real estate estate broker, there are times when it makes sense to hire a realtor and pay the commission.
This is one of those times.

I read here that Mclin no longer handles fsbo closings, if true any other title company will handle this..
Yes, I would like to save that 6%, especially since homes sell so easy in TV. Seems like a waste to give away that much money for so little effort on the agents part.

I haven’t connected anyone yet. I’m waiting until I can come down next month.

McLin does still handle FSBO closings. I contacted them last week and they emailed the docs to me. 17 pages.
