How Does For Sale By Owner Work?

What is the ByOwner.com difference

Simply put…. “Maximum exposure at a Minimum Investment”. An FSBO transaction will let you keep the 6% real estate commissions you’d typically pay in your own pocket! We harness technology to find potential buyers and save FSBO sellers thousands of dollars while enjoying full MLS listing coverage.

Benefits for FSBO sellers

Our MLS listing package will help you get your home sold fast. How fast? Some of our sellers got the contract signed in less than a week! ByOwner includes your for sale by owner property on top nationwide real estate websites and your local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for 70-80% LESS than your typical broker. You’ll get lots of extras, too, like help setting up your ad, a yard sign, direct contact with Buyers, help to get the contract signed, and the great exposure you need to get sold. See our free e-book for practical, step-by-step information for sellers.

Real estate transactions made easy

The whole process of putting up a home for sale might seem complicated for first-time sellers. Thankfully, with our FSBO guides, you can learn more about selling a home:

Commissions and Save Thousands

Say Goodbye to 6% Commissions and Save Thousands

Don't pay real estate commissions. Put your house up for sale by owner! The agent commission is the single highest cost associated with a real estate transaction. Homes sold at appraisal selling prices of $250,000 and up often pay $15,000 to real estate agents during the sales process. Our flat fee listing service will place your home on most major online real estate sites, giving you maximum exposure to millions of potential buyers. With us, FSBO sellers make more money!

Fast and easy way to sell your home

90% of buyers search online to find their new home. Our nationwide network lets buyers locate the ideal property listed directly by owners. Visit our "for sale" links to find thousands of homes to choose from. You can use the ByOwner.com website instead of realtors to find homes, condos, land, and multi-family units for sale.

Benefits Of Buying A House For Sale By Owner

Avoiding a traditional real estate agent by connecting directly with owners can save you money. Less money in commissions can mean a more reasonable asking price, one less person between you and your new home, and less hassle all around.

Flat Fee Service and Major Website Listing Services

Putting a home up for sale by owner? You need all the power you can get from your local MLS listing. The MLS (Multiple Listing Service) is the regional clearinghouse for almost every available property on the market. If you use a traditional real estate agent, local MLS listing for your home can cost you thousands of dollars. Not so long ago, private sellers could not gain access to this service without paying brokers their 6% commission.

The advantage that MLS listing gives to home sellers

ByOwner offers that powerful tool to you for a nominal flat rate. PLUS, our MLS package includes adding your home to the sales listings of Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia, Redfin, Bing, Yahoo, MSN, and many other popular real estate websites.

How to Sell Your Home For More

Many buyers look to boost the price they can ask for their homes by making improvements before staging time. General repairs to worn, weathered, or broken features are a must, so take inventory of your property to determine your fix-it priorities. If your architecture or interior design is dated or just plain ordinary, however, you might want to upgrade. Remember that today’s buyers will compare your home’s entryway, kitchen, and energy efficiency with other properties on the market. If yours doesn’t stand out, invest where your money will make the biggest splash.

How to Keep More of What Your Home Sells For

What could you do with an extra $15,000? 20,000? 40,000? If yours is a modest house, you’ll want every penny coming to you from a sale. If your property is in a higher appraisal bracket, the money you give up in agent commissions could be significant enough to pay off credit card debts, fund higher education, or repay a large chunk of your new mortgage.

If you used a traditional real estate agent, however, that fee would be based on your property’s final sale price. But would that price be set to attract the ideal buyer ... or to create the highest commission for the broker? That last scenario can happen when homeowners choose agents who inflate the value of a home, thinking that it automatically means more money for them.

The reality is that setting a sales price too high does not attract only people looking for high-end homes, but drives all sorts of buyers away. A reasonable—or lower—price does not mean you won’t get the best return on your home investment. In fact, it can create a bigger pool of interested buyers who will then compete to purchase your home.

Multiple offers mean you get to choose. All things being equal, you might select the party who seems to be the best fit for the neighborhood or who will take the best care of the property you have worked so hard to maintain. You might be able to negotiate the best transition time for you and avoid having to store items or rent an interim place to live.

ByOwner's in-depth guide to selling your home will help you decide on the right amount to reflect your home’s value and to attract the most desirable buyers. Striking the balance between too high and too low is a critical part of pricing your home. And that’s the first step to keeping more money in your pocket after your home transaction is all over.

A Large Database of Residential and Vacation Rentals

It seems as though the more ways there are to advertise, the harder it gets to find home rentals. You'll appreciate the ability to search a national pool of apartments and houses for rent via ByOwner, particularly if you are relocating.

If you're searching for the ideal vacation lodging, skip the hotels and the same, old properties on the short-term rental websites. Renting a private home typically gets you more amenities for less money. ByOwner can help you find the vacation rental home of your dreams.

 
 

What our clients says about us

"We were somewhat skeptical as to how many responses would be received for our house listed on ByOwner. However, the skepticism was short lived. The professional photos and written description were posted on MLS late Friday afternoon. Within an hour and a half, we received a request to show our house the next day. First offer was on our email that evening. Over the next three days, two more showings, followed almost immediately by offers. Since that time, three additional requests to show the house were received. We accepted an offer for full asking price plus other favorable terms. Many thanks."

-Leesha B

"We showed the house on Sunday and our first prospect put an offer for full price! I feel so good for it to show that we got a contract because initially we had so many Realtors calling and telling us that we will never sell by owner! I guess they all wanted us to fall for it. I want to show 'Buy Owner' worked in just one day!! We had 7 showings. Our first was at 10am and by 11:30 am we had the email with the offer and a contract signed. Thank you again!

-Ana C.

"The experience could not have been better from beginning to end. As a first time seller I was guided and pampered through the whole process by an excellent agent who made the process very smooth."

-Thomas R.

"There's no need to pay full commission ever again! We listed our home with "ByOwner.com" and saved nearly $5000! Our home went under contract in less than 30 days!"

-Robert V

"I listed my home with ByOwner and sold it in 52 days, we saved 3% of the selling price, which was $23,325!"

-Rose T

"My home was in MLS the same day I listed it and sold in 11 days. We saved over $10,440 in commission. It doesn't cost you 6% sell your home anymore."

-Judy G

"I was extremely happy with ByOwner.com. After just 1 day of my home being listed, I was already receiving several emails and phone calls from Realtors and potential buyers. On the 4th day of being listed, I had already signed into a contract. I was also very pleased that I was able to save $ 5,600 in commission. My family and friends were very impressed with your services and we plan to use your website again in the future. Thank you all so much.."

-Cory F

"On selling your house we dealt with one of the best brokers I’ve have ever met..... Try ByOwner the broker, will provide you with full services from a real estate company for 1% commission for listing, then you decide what percentage you want to pay if you have a cooperating broker. He sold our house within a few days for more than we were asking. He stayed on top of all the activity with the participating broker which we paid 2% so we were out of pocket only 3% for commissions instead of 6%+."

-Judy T

"Thank you for your excellent customer service! I am very impressed and will recommend your company to everyone."

-Mercedes B
