Large land owners and buyers don’t go to the commercial MLS websites like small residential buyers do. We wanted to give them their own designated place to make these transactions successfully.

Cody Maxwell, Brenham Real Estate Entrepreneur, has launched RanchByOwner.com, a For Sale by Owner (FSBO) website created to assist land and property owners advertise and secure sales transactions for a small monthly fee on land over 5 acres. Brought on by the shift in the online consumer dynamic, Maxwell saw a need to create a self-serve FSBO industry and leverage the growth of the digital marketplace. Listings appear on RanchByOwner.com, LandWatch.com, LandsofAmerica.com, and LandandFarm.com, simultaneously.
After researching ‘land for sale by owner’ website services, Maxwell found there were none providing this service effectively and in favor of both the seller and the buyer, saying: “I had heard stories of owners attempting to sell their farm or ranch on Craigslist or in the local paper with no or bad results”.
This is the only website of its kind and it has been created to help owners and buyers get out from under the umbrella of commercial real-estate and reap the benefits of the self-serve land and property industry. Owners can sell their land without paying a real-estate commission.
“Large land owners and buyers don’t go to the commercial MLS websites like small residential buyers do. We wanted to give them their own designated place to make these transactions. We launched the website in March of 2015, and it’s been hugely successful.” Maxwell states, “I want to help others sell land by owner – successfully.”
RanchByOwner.com offers land owners the never-before ability to list their land over 5 acres. Types of land range from farm land to hunting and recreational land, and the buildings that exist on those properties. The website hopes to see 150 listings by the end of 2015, and over 1,000 by 2017.
