NEW YORK, March 5, 2008 – A nationally known real estate mogul and contributor to NBC’s “Today” show has named ForSaleByOwner.com as the best real estate website for buying a house without a broker. The accolades from the expert, Barbara Corcoran, demonstrate again that ForSaleByOwner.com is one of the leading real estate websites in the country.
“With beautiful homes and properties located across the country, ForSaleByOwner.com is the ideal website for buyers to search for their dream house, vacation home or investment property,” said Greg Healy, Vice President of Operations of ForSaleByOwner.com. “We are humbled that such an accomplished and well regarded expert like Barbara Corcoran has recognized the strengths of our services.”
In naming ForSaleByOwner.com as the best website for buying a house without a broker, Corcoran noted that buyers are given the homeowner’s name and phone number so that the seller can be contacted directly. “People search for homes online and want to take the next step of contacting the owner without the interference of a middleman. We provide direct communication between buyers and sellers and offer a host of tools and resources so that real estate transactions can be done without using a real estate broker,” added Healy.
ForSaleByOwner.com is the nation’s leading for sale by owner website. Since 1999, ForSaleByOwner.com has saved home sellers more than one billion dollars by providing premium Internet marketing services, real estate guidance and information, as well as live customer support, to help customers independently sell their own homes. The company offers a wide range of listing packages at varying prices that provide advertising, information, tools and resources to empower people to sell their homes themselves. In contrast, a person selling a $300,000 home through a real estate agent would be charged a 6% commission fee and pay approximately $18,000.
