“I am the youngest sibling of 6 and had the opportunity to sell my home where I grew up as a child. My father had passed and we needed to sell to disperse the inheritance. I felt I was more than equipped to sell the farm without a real estate agent. I just needed a place to advertise that would give me quick results. No joke … I listed the farm on a Thursday evening and got a hit on that Friday morning and an offer came in by Tuesday. I could not have been happier. The closing is tomorrow!”

How do I cancel my For Sale By Owner listing
You can log into your account and cancel your listing on ForSaleByOwner.com at any time and free of charge. Canceling your listing will also end your listing syndication to sites like Yahoo! Homes and Zillow. Please note that canceling your For Sale By Owner listing will not cancel your local MLS or Realtor.com listing; you will need to contact and cancel with your assigned broker. You can always call customer support toll-free at 1-888-FOR-SALE (367-7253) and we’ll walk you through the process.
How do I cancel my Realtor.com listing
Email your assigned broker to cancel your Realtor.com listing at any time and free of charge. However, if you cancel before your six-month listing expires and then want to get back on Realtor.com, you will need to re-purchase a Realtor.com listing, even if it’s within your original six-month timeframe.

You’ll need to log in to your account to cancel your listing on our site, or call us toll-free at 1-888-FOR-SALE (367-7253) and we’ll walk you through the process.
What happens if I want to take my home off the market?
Log in to your account and mark your listing inactive in your Selling Center. This will update your online listing ad so buyers will know your home is off the market. When you’re ready to put your home back on the market, log in to your account and re-activate your listing. You will not be charged a fee.
What kind of paperwork will I need to fill out with this package?
After you purchase the Deluxe package, you will work with a by-owner friendly broker to complete the paperwork. You will get an email with information on how to fill out the forms that confirm your Realtor.com listing agreement. Once you return the completed the forms with your photos to your independent broker, your property will be placed on Realtor.com within three business days.
How do I add photos to my Realtor.com listing?
Choose up to six photos of your property to feature on your Realtor.com listing, but the main photo must show the front of your house or condo building. Your independent broker will give you more details on the type of photos to submit and manage the photos in your listing for you. (Add up to 25 photos when you upgrade your listing through your Selling Center.)
How do I edit my Realtor.com listing?
All edits must be submitted to your independent broker in writing. It may take up to three business days for the changes to appear on Realtor.com. During your six-month listing period, you can make three edits and post four open houses, free of charge. Changes to the price or status (for example, “Sold” or “Under Contract”) are always free, but additional changes will cost $25 per revision.
Can I be a Realtor.com listing for more than six months?
Your property will remain posted on Realtor.com for six months. You can renew every six months for a one-time fee by logging into your ForSaleByOwner.com account and clicking on “Upgrade My Listing.”
Can you show me an example of what my listing might look like on Realtor.com?
Absolutely. Here’s a sneak peek at a Realtor.com listing.
If my home is a Realtor.com listing, does that mean it’ll be on my local MLS?
No, Realtor.com is not a local Multiple Listing Service (MLS); it is the only website to aggregate properties from all MLSs across the country. We use a by-owner-friendly broker’s MLS outside your state, which gives you all the exposure without the restrictions of your local MLS. For Sale By Owner MLS Enhanced package includes a six-month listing on your local MLS.
Why do I have to offer a commission rate to get my listing on Realtor.com?
To be featured on Relator.com, some sort of commission amount is required in order to load your listing into the system; typically, 1% is accepted. This placeholder commission will not be visible to local real estate agents, nor will it appear online at Realtor.com, so you will not be obligated to pay any commission by entering this agreement. If buyer agents do contact you, you retain the right to choose whether or not to work with them. If so, you may negotiate their commission rate as long as you’re not also listed on your local MLS.
How do I create Professional Property Flyers?
Log in to your account and visit your Selling Center once you’ve purchased a package. With one just click:
• Your online ad turns into professionally-designed 8.5″x 11″ property flyers that you can print at home.
• Post your listing ad on Craigslist and your social networks using our simple sharing tools.
Will my video be seen everywhere listing appears online?
The video you upload to your ForSaleByOwner.com listing will only be seen on ForSaleByOwner.com. We do not share your video with other real estate sites.
