Some Packages Include:

Until Sold Listing The average home takes around 5-6 months to sell - if not longer. Having an "Until Sold" listing allows you to keep your property online indefinitely for a flat fee.
Property Pricing Report Effectively pricing your property is a main component to successfully selling "For Sale By Owner". Our Property Pricing Report gives you all the market information that a real estate agent would offer, including data on up to 20 recent 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.
Yard Sign Kit Our Yard Sign Kit comes with a heavy-duty sign and a weatherproof brochure dispenser to make it easy for buyers to get information about your property. Interested buyers can pick up a flyer as they drive by, then go online to learn more. You also receive a directional sign, perfect to use during open houses or everyday to help direct interested buyers to your property.
Increased Exposure We partner with a vast network of national and local sites to provide your property with the most online exposure available. Your home will be posted as a non-featured listing on Zillow and Yahoo Real Estate, as well as in the real estate sections of Facebook, Wal-Mart, AOL and many other high traffic sites.
Unlimited Photos You'll be able to upload as many photos as you would like! Having photographs is a proven way to generate a better response from potential buyers. Listings with more than 6 photos are 10% more likely to sell your home than those without.
Online Privacy and Security Since your privacy is one of our top priorities, we offer a secure voicemail message center and an e-mail forwarding service to keep your contact information private as you communicate with interested parties, allowing you to reveal your identity only to serious homebuyers.
Access to Our Consultation Line Need marketing advice from a professional? We have a real estate professional standing by to assist you with the basics of selling "For Sale By Owner".
Video Displaying a video is one of the best ways to market your property online. We provide two options for posting a video, uploading your own video or creating a video with your pictures. You can upload your own video and customize it with captions and key points. Alternatively, by utilizing up to 12 photos you can create a video showcase with a customized script. Posting a video to your listing will attract more potential buyers and help you sell your home quickly. See samples of a uploaded video and video showcase .
Post Your Home in Your Local MLS Reach more potential buyers by advertising your property on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and Realtor.com for 6 months. Many buyers use agents to find a property, and those agents use the MLS to locate properties for sale. By offering a buyer's agent a 2-3% commission, you are 25% more likely to sell you home and speed up the sale of your home. Of course, if you sell your home directly to a buyer (without an buyer's agent) you would pay no commission at all! Learn more about selling your home on the MLS and Realtor.com [+].
What Happens After You Purchase the MLS? Below is a quick overview of what to expect when you purchase an MLS listing on ForSaleByOwner.com.
  • Step 1: Purchase a package that includes an MLS listing.
  • Step 2: Your broker affiliate will contact you through e-mail within 2 business days with instructions on how to complete the MLS paperwork.
  • Step 3: Complete the paperwork and fax it back to your broker affiliate. You must indicate what you are willing to pay a buyer's agent - between 2-3% of the sale price of your home.
  • Step 4: The broker affiliate will post six photos of your property on the MLS and Realtor.com. The broker affiliate will provide instructions on how to submit your photos to them. It is highly recommended that you post photos for maximum results.
  • Step 5: Once your completed paperwork is submitted to the broker affiliate, your property will be placed on your local MLS within 1 business day. You will receive e-mail notification from your broker affiliate that your home has been successfully listed in the MLS, along with a copy of your listing to review.
  • Step 6: Your property will be uploaded to Realtor.com within 72 hours of being listed on the MLS. Note: Realtor.com is not the MLS, but a stand alone website for Real Estate Agents to expose their MLS listings to the public.
Important Information About Your MLS Listing Duration of MLS Listing: Your listing will remain on the MLS and Realtor.com for 6 months or until your property sells - whichever occurs first. Remember! You always retain the right to sell your property by owner and never pay any commission. Editing Your Listing
  • You may make 2 edits to your MLS listing during your listing period, free of charge.
  • Additional revisions can be made for a fee of $25 per change.
  • Changes to the price or status (sold or under contract) of your MLS listing are always free of charge.
  • All edits must be submitted to your broker affiliate in writing.
  • Your broker affiliate will make the requested changes within 24 hours.
  • It may take up to 10 days for changes to your MLS listing to be reflected on Realtor.com.
Posting Photos on the MLS Six photos may be uploaded to the MLS and Realtor.com (the same photos will be posted on both). You will need to send your photos to your assigned broker affiliate. They will provide you instructions on how to do this. Additional photos will be available for purchase through your ForSaleByOwner.com Selling Center. MLS Affiliated Sites There are many MLS affiliated websites across the country that post MLS listings. Your property may be listed on one or more additional MLS affiliated websites giving you extra exposure! Keep in mind, neither ForSaleByOwner.com nor the broker affiliate are affiliated with these private websites and cannot control whether or not your listing is posted on any particular website. Please be sure to view our Terms and Conditions for additional information and terms.
Realtor.com Showcase Listing Advertise your property on Realtor.com - the #1 real estate website! Use a Realtor.com Showcase Listing to greatly increase your property's exposure without placing it in your local MLS.
