There are many For Sale By Owner listing platforms in the U.S. but ByOwner.com stands out among the pack. This site is a comprehensive, one-stop service for those who want to market their own houses online. Not only does ByOwner expand the sample size of prospective buyers, it does so at only a small portion of the cost imposed by a traditional real estate broker. In fact, you can avoid the usual six percent Realtor's commission -- which can add up to a big chunk of the proceeds -- when you go with our Des Plaines, Illinois Flat Fee MLS listing service.
How is that even possible? It works because we broaden the audience for your home to people that would be otherwise uninformed.
ByOwner not only lists your property with the local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) for any given city, we also engage the most utilized search engines and the more popular real estate gateway sites, including Trulia, Zillow, Realtor.com, MSN, AOL, Bing, Yahoo, and Google. Meanwhile, once the house is added to the MLS, the FSBO listing appears alongside homes listed on broker sites, specifically ReMax, C-21, Coldwell Banker, ERA, Redfin, Movoto, Keller Williams. This is standard practice among brokerages since sites like this generally display all MLS listings.
As a general rule, sellers who use ByOwner conserve over $15,000 when all is said and done. We give For Sale By Owners the apparatus and noticeability they need while, simultaneously, greatly diminishing the cost of the sales transaction.
