At FSBO Real Estate, we have thrived by keeping our advertising services top-notch, but our fees very reasonable.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 09, 2013
For years, it was commonly believed that selling a home was next to impossible, without formal training, licensure, and experience in real estate. More and more frequently, however, homeowners experience the desire to list and sell their properties themselves—a proposition that is promising and daunting in equal measure. Many homeowners are up to the challenge but still need some professional real estate service and support—which is why they turn to FSBO Real Estate. Now, the site is celebrating its 15th anniversary, a milestone that has merited a press statement from founder Jason Kay.
“The impetus for FSBO Real Estate was a simple one,” remarks Kay, in his new press statement. “We knew that there was a big population of property owners who were interested in selling, and in circumventing real estate conventions by doing it on their own, not having to pay commissions to real estate agents. The trouble is that, even for those who know a little bit about real estate, listing a property for sale still requires certain resources—and those resources are what FSBO Real Estate seeks to provide.”
Accessible on the Web at fsbo-realestate.com, Kay’s site is meant to serve as a portal for homeowners eager to list and to sell. By setting up an account, homeowners can create customized listings for their for-sale properties—listings that ultimately gain national exposure. Visitors to the site can use the online directory or the interactive U.S. map to locate for-sale properties across the country.
What has made the site so successful, however, is its commitment to offering simple and affordable services. “We have been in business for 15 years precisely because we offer a terrific alternative to selling a property through conventional means,” says Kay.
“When you sell your home through an agent, you often end up paying commissions of as much as six percent,” he continues. “At FSBO Real Estate, however, we have thrived by keeping our advertising services top-notch, but our fees very low and reasonable. To date, we have helped thousands of homeowners sell their properties, without having to pay hefty commissions or fees to professional realtors.”
Kay concludes by saying that the success of his site reveals a real desire for DIY real estate. “That we have succeeded over this last decade-and-a-half shows that there is really a market for folks who wish to sell their properties themselves,” he says. “We are grateful that so many of them have allowed us to help them do so!”
