More than 90% of buyers start their search online. Advertising in a newspaper will not provide the constant and unlimited marketing exposure needed to sell your home. Online classified websites are cluttered and do not offer real estate resources.
ForSaleByOwner.com has nearly 2 million visits each month, is the leading "For Sale By Owner" website in the country and provides all real estate resources needed to guide you through the selling process.
More than 93% of buyers start their home search online and most start with the most popular listing sites. ForSaleByOwner.com makes sure your listing gets found on sites like Zillow, Yahoo! Real Estate, Oodle, Homefinder and many others. For even more exposure, get found by even more buyers by listing your home on Realtor.com and the local brokers' database, known as the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
Effectively pricing your property is a key component of successfully selling your property. ForSaleByOwner.com's Property Pricing Report gives you all the market information that a real estate agent would offer, including data on up to 20 recent property sales in your area so that you are well informed about the local market when you set your price. Please note, Pricing Reports are available for properties located within the US ONLY.
|Live Customer Support|
One of the biggest worries of first time "For Sale By Owner" sellers is the fear of going it alone. Don't worry, we're here to help you! We provide live customer support to ensure you get the most out of our tools and services. 888-FOR-SALE (367-7253).
|Real Estate Agent|
Why give 6% to a real estate agent when you can do it yourself? If you are willing and committed to educating yourself, returning calls from buyers and showing your property yourself, you can sell your property without the help of an agent. ForSaleByOwner.com makes it easy to sell "For Sale By Owner" and with our help you can save thousands!
Yard signs are incredibly important! 80% of all homes sold in the U.S. use a yard sign to aid in the sale. Unfortunately, in today's Internet-dominated market, a yard sign just isn't enough. In addition to a heavy-duty yard sign, ForSaleByOwner.com's yard sign kit comes with a weatherproof brochure dispenser to make it easy for buyers to get information about your property and a directional sign that can be placed at a nearby intersection to direct buyers to your property.
A real estate agent can sell your home for you, but you will give up 6% of your home's value. ForSaleByOwner.com provides you with guidance and support that makes it easy for you to sell or buy a home with our Home Selling Workbook, Instructional DVD and eBook, pricing reports and other helpful resources. We help you price, prepare, and market your home, negotiate with buyers and take the necessary steps to complete the sale while saving thousands of dollars.
Flyers are a necessary component to selling your property. They provide more information to buyers who are driving by and gives them something to take away with them to help remember your property. All ForSaleByOwner.com property listings come with a built-in tool to create professional property flyers. With a simple click, you can turn your online ad into a beautiful property flyer that you can print right at home.
|Control of Your Listing|
The truth is that most real estate agents don't allow you much say, if any, in marketing your property, let alone setting the asking price. Newspaper ads are a one time shot and many online classified sites have tight restrictions on the amount of text you can add. ForSaleByOwner.com puts you in charge of the sale. We give you unlimited access to edit your 1000 word ad, change your price, add photos, schedule open houses, and track how many people have viewed your online ad. You're in control 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
|Home Selling Guarantee|
Another benefit of listing your property on ForSaleByOwner.com is our Home Selling Guarantee. If you decide you don't want to sell "For Sale By Owner" anymore, we'll connect you with a top real estate agent in your area. Then, once your home sells, we'll refund any fees you paid to us.
