Sell Home By Owner With Our FSBO Home Selling Co-Op
Our FSBO Advertising Co-Op provides home owners an effective and affordable way to sell a home and either totally avoid or minimize realtor commissions. Use either our For Sale By Owner Advertising services or our Realtors Flat Fee MLS Listing services to more successfully and affordably sell a home and minimize the total home selling cost. Some owners may desire to market their property themselves in order to totally avoid commissions, others may wish to pay some realtor commission but only to the buyers agent who brings the buyer to the closing and thereby essentially reduce their realtor commission expense by approximately HALF. Sellers and Buyers must individually determine whether they need the services of a realtor and whether they find the services of realtors to be an efficient value to them or not. This is an individual decision each buyer and seller will make based on their specific needs and preferences. We offer two options so sellers can either avoid realtor commissions altogether or minimize the realtor commission expense. The good news is you can use BOTH of those methods at the same time, that way you can MAXIMIZE the exposure of your home to ALL buyers in the market and thereby Maximize your prospects of finding the buyer willing to pay the highest price in the shortest amount of time at the SAME TIME that you have the opportunity to either TOTALLY AVOID Realtor commissions or in the WORST CASE reduce them to about HALF the amount the big real estate companies want to charge you.
Our sellers co-op is conceptually similar to the "Realtors marketing plan", the concept is to keep the property "In Front" of All the potential buyers All the time and sooner or later that "perfect" buyer for each specific property will find it and buy it. The Realtors do this through the realtors advertising Co-Op known as the MLS. FSBOAdvertising is essentially a Homes For Sale By Owner advertising Co-Op with the single objective of keeping advertised properties in front of All the buyers All the time, conceptually like the Realtors plan except without the 6% price tag. Using our Co-Op, owners can sell a home for as little as $49.50 TOTAL SELLING cost, and MANY OWNERS HAVE DONE JUST THAT. Our widespread presence on the Internet PLUS our own Local Media advertising combined with the Local Media Advertising of all participants in this Co-Op will certainly INCREASE the relative effectiveness of all owners marketing efforts and should result in the degree of advertising consistency and breadth needed so when that perfect buyer for your specific property is searching for a home, there is a good chance that buyer will find your Advertisement at one of the web sites in our Affiliate Network and CALL YOU to buy it. Consistency and breadth in advertising is critical to selling real estate. On a cost for value basis every owner in America selling a home should take advantage of this Co-Op to help keep their property "In Front" of buyers MORE consistently and thereby improve the effectiveness of their marketing efforts. You can also save a lot of wasted time talking to those potential buyers who are really not even interested in your specific property, since each prospective buyer who contacts you from our advertising will have already seen photos of your property and learned the complete details about your home which you provided in Your Full Page Internet Ad. Aside from the fact that advertising in the newspapers serving most large cities has become EXTREMELY OVERPRICED (since their advertising rates are based on total newspaper circulation and NOT how many people actually read the real estate classifieds - we all know that MOST people buy the newspaper to either read the news or to clip coupons from it or to find a movie to go see, NOT to read the real estate classifieds), buyers simply can not get enough information from a 4 or 10 line classified ad to know if they are really interested or not, so you can spend endless hours of your valuable time answering the same questions over and over from potential buyers who have no interest in your home to start with, they just do not know that yet. This Plan is Better for the Buyers and Better for the Sellers. Sellers can use our advertising services as an Effective Marketing Tool to facilitate accomplishing these and other objectives. Our FSBO Advertising service is designed to make Home Selling by owner more effective and affordable than ever before.
Our Hybrid FSBO - MLS marketing option (which we have been offering since 1999) allows owners to simultaneously pursue TWO marketing methods. You can either find the buyer yourself and pay NO Realtor Commission at all or you can sell through a Realtor where you pay only a $199 to $499 FLAT FEE instead of a listing commission to get listed then you just offer a 2% to 3% commission to the Buyers Agents IF they find you a Buyer. In the past owners had to choose between using the Realtors MLS Listing Services and the For Sale By Owner home selling methods, you could not pursue both at the same time. Well, that was the PAST. Today you really can have your cake and eat it too, so to speak.
Maximize The Value of ALL Your Home Selling Efforts
With your listing at FSBOAdvertising you can also INCREASE Value of your other Local Media Advertising. You can use Your Full Page Internet Ad as an Effective Marketing Tool to enable all the potential buyers to effortlessly Tour Your Home at Their Convenience. In order to achieve optimum results and to maximize the value of your marketing efforts we highly recommend that our advertisers place a Real Estate Sign in your yard and do some Local Media Advertising. If you are serious about getting optimum results (finding a buyer at the right price, right away, without paying a realtor 6%) then sellers should use our service as an "additional marketing tool" that will enhance and fill the gaps in the breadth and consistency of your other advertising efforts and reduce the hassle factor and general inadequacies normally associated with those other methods of advertising. You also need to have the patience to let your marketing plan work, just like the realtors tell you to be patient with their MLS marketing method. The Realtors do not talk much about the FACT that around 20% of ALL Realtors MLS Listings are terminated or withdrawn (the property is NOT SOLD), so the Realtors MLS method of marketing is NOT always as FAST or effective as the Realtors statistics may seem to indicate SINCE the Realtors normally ONLY INCLUDE days on the market for homes MARKED SOLD for example in their statistics of time to sell and this is misleading since MANY homes NEVER SELL and they do NOT include the days on the market for those terminated and withdrawn listings in those calculations. Also, please bear in mind that the individual advertising efforts of each member of this For Sale By Owner Co-Op will assist not only that member but also all other sellers in keeping Your properties in front of all the buyers all the time. So every seller who integrates their Internet Ad into their other marketing efforts (like your newspaper ad and yard sign) not only helps themselves but they also help ALL the other participants. With Your Full Page Ad at FSBOAdvertising, in your own Local Media Advertising you will have two additional alternatives. You can refer to your specific "listing #" and our Special web site URL (SeeHomePhoto.com) so that potential buyers who have internet service can see photos and the full detail of your property before or instead of calling to ask you questions (which MANY buyers prefer to do anyway if they have that option, that is why THOUSANDS of them come to our websites to start with). You can also just tell people who call you from your newspaper ads to go look at your photos and details online when they call you instead of answering their endless questions then call you back if they want to make an appointment to see the home AFTER they learn all about your property from viewing your FULL PAGE Internet Ad. That method will also save paying the newspaper for an extra line of newsprint. Many sellers will find that this will IMPROVE the overall results of their advertising efforts and it will also take a lot of the "hassle" factor out of your home selling efforts. You will only need to spend your valuable time talking to and showing your home to potential buyers who are REALLY INTERESTED (they have seen your photos and complete details about your property already, not just 3 lines of newsprint or a phone number on a yard sign in front of a house which may not have enough bedrooms or the kind of features which they are interested in). You can include the following "additional line" in any of your local advertisements: "SeeHomePhoto.com Ad54521" (use your actual ad number). This will normally fit on one line of ad space in the local paper. Our special National Services Web Site URL itself tells buyers you have photos for them to see, so it does not use up a line in the ad JUST to give directions.
