Yes you can. You can start your ad today and come back to finish it at any time. So if you're not ready for your home to go live yet, or haven't finished taking your photos, ...no problem. Just save it and finish it later.
You pay a one-time listing fee with ByOwner to get your home on the market. We recommend, but don’t require you to offer a cooperating fee to a selling broker. This will encourage other brokers to bring their buyers. We recommend 1-3% of the selling price as a selling broker fee (you can still sell your home on your own and pay NO additional fees). Have questions? Click here or call us at 800-296-9637.
If you are willing to offer a commission to a “Buyers Agent” who brings you an acceptable offer, your offered amount will be posted directly in the MLS for Buyers Agents to see. We recommend 1-3% of the selling price as an offering to a Buyers Agent. (You can still sell your home on your own and pay no additional brokerage/Buyer Agent fees.)
Your phone number is on ByOwner.com, and many of the other sites we syndicate your home to, it also is in MLS for co-operating brokers to see, but not in MLS public comments. The MLS systems usually require the agent’s phone number to be in MLS. The agent will refer all Buyer and cooperating agents directly to you.
We add your listing to ByOwner.com, Premium real estate postings also are syndicated to: ByOwnerMLS, a local MLS system, Trulia, Google, Zillow, MSN and many other highly trafficked websites. This exposes your property to tens of millions of potential buyers.
Yes, if you choose an MLS posting. To get your property in MLS it is a requirement to have a signed listing agreement with an agent or broker. You still maintain your right to sell your home yourself and pay NO commission at all!
ByOwner has over 90 different categories of classified ads. We specialize in selling residential properties, Homes, Condos, Vacant Land, Townhomes and Multifamily properties. We also post commercial properties and raw land. (MLS services are currently not available for commercial properties)
A “Realtor.com” listing is a listing which goes into Realtor.com but not in your local MLS. We do not offer a service where your listing goes only into Realtor.com, nor do we believe that any listing which does not include local MLS exposure would be of much value. All of the ByOwner.com listings go both into the local MLS and Realtor.com.
There is only one true ByOwner.com, our proven model of selling homes has often been imitated, but never duplicated. ByOwner.com has been around since 1999, we are a pioneer real estate marketing. Our program gives you the same exposure you would get with a “traditional” real estate agent, but without you paying a 6% commission. The average seller sells their home in about 60 days and saves approximately $7,500 or more in commissions. When you list you home with ByOwner.com, you won’t pay us any hidden fees or backend charges at closing. Pay close attention to the competitors, many of them charge additional fees at closing which are often more than their initial upfront fee. Some of our competitors use their fine print to hide their back end fees, be on the lookout for any company that says: Additional fees may apply, or companies which only offer “Realtor.com” exposure. Be completely informed before you go anywhere else.

There is NO OTHER FEES, however we encourage you to offer a fee to other real estate brokers to entice them to bring you a tenant . We recommend 5-10% of the annual lease amount, but give you full control to set your own rate. (you can still rent it on your own and pay no additional fees) Have questions? Click here
