The top ranking international property website,, is now pleased to offer private owners the chance to list directly via its new 'For Sale by Owner' section. Property is an ever important investment tool and after a number of years dealing solely with agents and developers, offers worldwide real estate owners the welcome opportunity to list direct on the site.

Individual owners of international property can now list directly via, safe in the knowledge that their properties are being listed on one of the world's highest ranking real estate websites.

For a small one-off fee, property owners are allowed up to 5 listings for 3 months and get instant contact with prospective buyers as enquiries are sent directly to their email inboxes.

A minimum description length of 50 words is required and images are checked for quality. Each listing is displayed on its very own page within the site, allowing property descriptions to rank naturally in their own right. Additionally, upgrades are possible on different levels and sellers' listings can be upgraded to "Property of the Week" and/or featured in a "Bulletin Mailer" which is sent to over 10,000 potential buyers who have made a search on the site.

"We have been receiving direct enquiries from the public to list on our site for some time now, which has involved us putting the client in touch with a collaborating agent. For the most part this worked well but, with the ever growing demand from sellers to list in a wider variety of countries and regions than ever before, we have seen fit to add 'For Sale by Owner' (FSBO) to our services", says Peter Mindenhall, Business and Media Manager at

"Whilst there are many websites that allow direct by owner property listings, only a few rank well in the bigger picture when it comes to both general and regional searches. Even when they do, quality listings can often be mixed in with a lot of irrelevant or poor quality listings, or stuck behind filters that mean some properties have little chance of being seen. The other key issue for many is the quality of listings themselves: many portals are accepting listings for absolutely anything in a bid to generate more content and thus rank higher in the search engines. Invariably what happens is the prospective buyer sees a number of poorly described properties with even poorer photos, and simply leaves the site."

Since the beginning of the year, some 20% of listings have actually been removed in a drive to improve quality within the site. As a result, only the most informative listings are displayed, providing improved results for the end user; a standard prides itself on keeping for all its real estate services.
