Welcome to word-of-mouth “For Sale by Owner” self-promotion. Today’s savvy seller and knowledgeable buyer are saying no to traditional means of housing sales and demonstrating their due diligence. As the market continues to show fluctuations, people are utilizing less typical methods to purchase or sell their domiciles.

I listed my home on and the positive feedback was amazing!

Recent articles have touted “wacky ways” to sell homes to include over-night trial stays, and listings that include social media marketing, such as neighborhood videos and individualized URLs.

The idea is not always just to reduce commercial fees for the buyer and seller, but also to create connections between both parties. Most owners view their domestication as much more than a residence and yearn to continue the foundation of home and family through the next dweller.

Meet designers and entrepreneurs Suzi West and Jon Myers, founders of GreenMyers. GreenMyers is a company that specializes in strategic business marketing; focused on the idea of fresh ideas to drive profitability. This two-person team strives to find a balance between the social community and do-it-your-selfers.

“When I first considered listing my home, my immediate thoughts were to identifying someone that would best fit the lifestyle of my abode," states West. “I want to find the buyer that will appreciate the space that I created and how I live; walking to favorite restaurants, shopping locally, living in an efficient place and consuming less."

West and Myers recently developed a website to sell their residence, opting out of enlisting a traditional agent to sell the property. Their site, utilizes captivating photography, easy site navigation and well-resourced traffic building search terms. The team hopes to inspire others to self promote and keep real estate expenses to a minimum, while finding that just right consumer.

The idea of social movement and communication dates to the turn of the century. In a Nobel Prize address in 1909, Guglielmo Marconi, was collaboratively recognized for his development of the radio telegraph system, which served as the foundation for the establishment of numerous affiliated companies worldwide.

With over 80 million new classified advertisements each month, Craigslist is the leading servicer of the buying of goods and services, with over 350,000 real estate listings.
Owners are saving between 2 – 3% of agent fees by utilizing sites like FSBO, which may result in a net of $7,000 - $12,000. Patience, research and ingenuity are the most frequently adapted traits of home listing, by both agents and self-motivated sellers.

“I guess I just think of this as a business,” says Myers, who has been designing websites since 1996. “It is a marketplace with a product and a consumer. It is just a matter of connecting the two.”
