For Sale By Owner - About Us
Welcome to the Original For Sale By Owner website!For Sale By Owner Inc. is powered by the Binary Broadcasting Corporation; a 100% Canadian-owned Software and IT consulting company located in Edmonton, Alberta. For Sale By Owner Inc. is not a real estate agency, and we are not owned by any real estate agents or real estate companies in any way. We are an independent marketing company whose sole purpose is to provide an easy to use online forum where buyers and sellers can get together for the purpose of discussing Real Estate transactions of all kinds. The For Sale By Owner (FSBO) website features up to date Real Estate listings from Private Sellers and real estate agents who are using this website as part of their online marketing plan looking for buyers.
We also feature local Canadian Licenced Real Estate Agents, Banks, Mortgage Co's, Lawyers, and other Real Estate related businesses throughout the site. This gives our users access to relevant services while they are using our web site. If you are thinking of selling on your own you will most likely require some of the services we are showcasing here. Our goal is simple - we want to provide you with valuable resources that will help you buy or sell your next property more successfully.
If you are looking to sell privately, or if you are a real estate agent and wish to include your clients' listings here, simply log on to the List Property page and start advertising your property.
Since its original launch in May 1997, this site has assisted thousands of Canadians in buying and selling hundreds of millions of dollars in real estate property. The latest version of the website was launched in October 2010.
The For Sale By Owner website assists independent sellers by increasing their exposure from a local market to a nation-wide market, with the potential of a worldwide audience as well. Each property listed here has an equal chance of being sold, as long as it is priced properly and has been adequately prepared for the sale. Truth be told, the ability to independently market real estate property has been dramatically enhanced with the explosion of the Internet into most Canadian households and businesses. There has never been a better time to sell privately, and FSBO is definitely the one place you want to be online!
Historically, approximately five percent of independent sellers have sold their homes without the assistance of a real estate agent. In some markets in Canada, a higher percentage of homeowners are now marketing their home as "For Sale By Owner."
Here are the top three reasons why independent sellers have difficulty selling their properties and how using this site will reduce or eliminate those obstacles:Limited market exposure: Typically, an independent seller's market reach is limited to word of mouth and a local newspaper's classified section. A text advertisement is a great start to a comprehensive ad campaign, and it's also an effective way to promote your home to local buyers. The advantage of using this site is that those potential buyers can also view your home in detail online first and then follow up with you personally for a closer look. This saves both the buyer and seller a great deal of time.
Limited access to the seller: If you are away from home, or simply not able to answer a potential buyer's call, your property is essentially off the market. The FSBO website is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Potential buyers can get contact information or leave a message on the site for you through emails that we direct to you. You can help by leaving a message on your answering machine that tells interested buyers about your virtual show home. Be sure to mention the web address www.fsbo.ca and your listing number. This way, even when you are not home, individuals will be able to log onto our site and preview your property.
Out of town buyers: Prospective buyers, who are not local to the area, rarely have the time to contact owners directly. The FSBO site will allow anyone to view your home through pictures, text and graphics from the comfort of their own home or office. They can narrow down their selections by using the FSBO site and then contact the seller from anywhere in the country, or even the world.
