For Sale By Owner was an excellent service at an excellent price. We were able to get exactly what we wanted. A professional looking website to advertise our home as well as being able to listed our home on MLS. The process was very simple and seamless. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The questions I did have were answered right away by real people! My only caution to prospective sellers is that we received no inquires about our property from local real estate agents even though we offered to work with agents in our listing. We had a lot of people see our sign and our listing on MLS and contact us directly. Our house was a very standard home and easy to sell. My caution is that more unique properties might take longer to sell using FSBO then if listed by a realtor. This comment should not reflect poorly on FSBO. We were very happy with the service and would highly recommend it.

It was a very easy process to get our signs and get ready to sell our house. We sold off the sign. They are very noticeable and colourful and attract attention. The people involved with For Sale By Owner are very good, they walk you through everything, and are very patient with you. If you run into any trouble you just phone them and they will help you. The MLS part of the listing was very good also, and they made you feel comfortable doing it. We will definitely go with this system again. Thank you For Sale By Owner Inc!

Great experience listing my home with For Sale By Owner!
Although I received numerous calls from agents trying to get me to list with them and saying I'd never sell it on my own - I stuck with it and my home sold in 2 days!
I was in complete control of the sale and ended up saving thousands of dollars in commissions!

It was pleasant experience to list my condo using this site. It was easy and more importantly having an option to edit anytime was a big plus. I had listed for sale but later decided to sale or rent. I found a good tenant. Really happy about the service.

After a horrific experience with a different FSBO company for less money, that ended up costing us way more in extra fees as well, we located and tried ForSaleByOwner.ca.

It was a BRILLIANT move: We paid a bit more than the other company, but had no surprises this time! We had full control over our ForSaleByOwner.ca listing and could edit it any time we wanted. I am NOT computer savvy, but I found their system to be very easy ("yay for drag and drop") and FSBO was always available or got right back to me if I had any questions or got stuck. FSBO is what I would call "Service Oriented" and has won a top score from myself and Cathy for their service. We really enjoyed being able to check how many times our ad was being viewed.

If you ever try to sell you property on your own, I would strongly recommend you use ForSaleByOwner.ca to connect you to REALTOR.ca for even greater exposure.

On a personal note about selling your home privately - just be yourself and be honest. No special tactics need to be in place when you are face to face with someone who wants what you have, at a good price. Two mature people can easily come to an agreement without making it a complicated procedure. I entered into negotiations with all our cards face up, and so did the buyer, and it was easier than we thought it would be. Good luck! :-)

Our experience with For Sale By Owner was great. We had tried to sell our house 18 months ago with a realtor without success. With ForSaleByOwner.ca we had 5 couples view our house in an 8 week period, three of whom came back twice and all three of whom wanted to buy our house. We chose the first offer that came to us and had two potential buyers writing and calling us in case the deal fell through.

We found the FSBO service great and the site platforms really worked for us, both the ForSaleByOwner.ca site and the MLS Realtor.ca site listing we packaged together. It is true that potential buyers tell their agents about houses they want to see because they do their own site trawling. So good photographs and detailed information help to attract buyers and handouts of floorplans, special features and assessed value documents are helpful to prospective buyers who view your home.

Very happy with the service provided by this website!

It works well when your property is in a high demand area and you list it on the MLS through this service. You should have some experience/knowledge in the process of selling real estate as this is appreciated by the potential buyers/agents.

It worked well for me when I reached out to number of agents who were very active in the area and confirmed a reasonable commission to them. I had no negative feedback from agents who didn't want to deal with me directly instead of another agent. All agents were more than happy to deal directly with me! I had as many independent buyers come through the property as well.

A good experience and rewarding. I will never again pay a realtor to market my home after seeing how easy it was I was amazed why anyone would. Selling it on my own gave me a competitive advantage regarding pricing and showings.

I would recommend to keep a open mind when realtors contact you and have a client. Price your home realistic, take the emotional aspect away from your home and set a bottom line. I spent maybe 8 hours in total time in learning, showing and making deals to signing off on the house. The easiest money saved ever.

I think it was a good idea to offer a buyer's agent commission, even though we didn't end up needing it. It attracts the traffic to the house. I would also recommend getting professional photos taken of the house - we did this, and I think it helped. I was very comfortable with the process and at no point wished that I had hired an agent. Overall I was very pleased with this process.

We are very happy to say we have sold our home. We would also like to say that it has been a real pleasure working with the folks involved with the "For Sale By Owner Depot". Service was second to none in our opinion, with quick responses to our questions and a true personal touch. We won't hesitate to use this service again, and will certainly recommend to all friends considering selling their homes.

I want to thank you for your For Sale By Owner website. Of my search of sites to post property for sale yours appeared the most promising and it lived up to all its promises. We could have used a local Realtor but the property is in rural Saskatchewan and we wanted to reach a larger market. The site is user friendly and the details are all well thought out. You added the small town where my property was located to your site and the follow up email confirming that addition was prompt. The number of pictures you allow make it easy for buyers to have a really good virtual look.

I received more than one inquiry through your For Sale By Owner site and sold my property to a couple from Hope, BC.

I would also like to thank you for saving me the Realtor fees on my sale.
