Only sellers can choose which pricing option is right for them, but for those in areas where the real estate market has slowed, or for those whose home cannot easily be compared to others in their neighborhood, the FizBer.com price- range option may be a good solution. We think many sellers will want to try listing their homes this way, and we're sure it will appeal to buyers as well.
Miami Beach, Fl (PRWEB) October 9, 2007
Homeowners know how low they're willing to go when they sell their homes. They also know how much they're hoping to get. Now real estate for-sale-by-owner (FSBO) leader FizBer.com has introduced a pricing system that includes both those figures - and may help owners sell their homes faster in today's real estate market.
It works like this: Instead of listing their homes for a set price, sellers state a price range they're willing to accept. The lower price serves as a starting point for buyers interested in buying the home at an affordable price, and negotiations proceed from there.

The advantages of a price-range system of selling real estate are many. Buyers can see the seller's rock-bottom price and offer accordingly. Often, the lower price is low enough to give buyers instant equity. Should more than one buyer make an offer on the home, knowing the seller's desired price is also helpful.
For sellers, FizBer.com's new price-range option may make selling in a buyer's market quicker and more profitable. Rather than pricing a home at $350,000, for example, a seller can list the home at $325,000 to $375,000. The lower price is more attractive to buyers who have many comparable homes to choose from; the range increases the likelihood the seller will receive an offer close to the set price he or she would have chosen. And by listing a home in a price range rather than at a set price, sellers ensure their home will show up in more searches on FizBer.com - and on the many other FSBO sites that display FizBer.com's listings.
"Sellers can still list their homes at a fixed price, but we now offer the price-range option to all our clients as well," said FizBer.com PR manager Julia Foster. "Only sellers can choose which pricing option is right for them, but for those in areas where the real estate market has slowed, or for those whose home cannot easily be compared to others in their neighborhood, the FizBer.com price- range option may be a good solution.
