Here's What our Happy Sellers Have to Say!
"'For sale by owner' has been very helpful in helping us sell our property.
"I would definitely recommend using For Sale By Owner to sell your home. Listing our home on this site was easy and straight forward. We saved over $14,000 on the sale of our home even though we sold with a buyer's agent."
"The listing (linked through REALTOR.ca plus social media sharing) was seen more than 1,100 times in the two weeks since I listed. I think this is a good number. Features for managing description and photos were easy to use. Also, the mere listing brokerage was very responsive to emails, and helpful."
"Everything we needed to sell our home was right at our fingertips. This is a great service!"
"Our experience with For Sale By Owner was great. They were very helpful & answered all my questions. Before we went with them I looked up homes of others who were selling with For Sale By Owner, and found that others had very positive things to say. I liked For Sale By Owner over the other sell it yourself platforms for a few reasons. When you call the brokerage their secretary answers the phone and is helpful, you are not put into a prerecorded confusing queue.
For Sale By Owner has a great working relationship with their brokerage. For Sale By Owner does what it does best and the brokerage deals with the things it does best. I also liked the control I had over my REALTOR.ca listing, the number of photos, and the option of promoting my open houses.
There are no hidden costs! Awesome experience, definitely the best sell it yourself option out there! I highly recommend. My house sold within 24hrs of listing and we had many more serious buyers interested within the week of posting that I had to deny. Sure I may have been able to get more if I had a realtor and created a bidding war, but I'd also need to get $10,000 more to cover the commission. I'm very happy, we got what we wanted to get!"
Thank you for all your help and especially your patience. We listed in early August and sold September 2nd. My brother, who told me about this site, sold his within 2 weeks for full price and no commission. I highly recommend you and FSBO to anyone who has a property for sale. My savings were over $11,000 in commission - although I was agent friendly, I was able to negotiate a fixed amount with the agent - that worked out to about 1.5% of the sale price. Again thank you for all your help and guidance - I could not have done this without you."
"We are extremely happy and excited to have listed with ForSaleByOwner.ca. Rob was very knowledgeable, helpful and patient every step of the way.
Potential buyers told us they found the listing with ease and we found the website very easy to use. We highly recommend ForSaleByOwner.ca."
"Trying to sell by owner is a great education and due diligence to ensure best execution! No one has your and your family interests higher than yourself! I highly recommend everyone looking to buy and sell house to start here... Thank you for the amazing service and great tool."
"We had a very positive experience selling our home privately. Help was fast and friendly. We sold in a week for more than asking and saved ourselves over $20,000 in commission! Thank you to those at forsalebyowner.ca."
"Sold in two days!"
"FOR SALE BY OWNER...has been a great experience for us. We thank the staff of this organization for their help and guidance in making our sale a great experience...without any problems."
"I have nothing but good things to say about the whole experience! I have found everyone to be professional, patient and easy to work with. Rob in particular has been amazing! I can't believe the response times and personal help I have received with all my questions or issues...Amazing! I will recommend this group to anyone that is trying to sell a home on their own. I saved $17,000 in commissions and am a happy man!"
"This service is totally sufficient for simple transaction of selling your property. You don't really need any agent - there is nothing in this case that you cannot do especially with such abundance of easily accessible information on the Internet.
The team behind this service was very helpful, quickly and fully answering all my questions and concerns.
The only improvement I would suggest - open some local offices in every province to better convey some minor nuances, but it is me nitpicking basically.
Bottom line: highly recommended and I would insist on using this service instead of calling a Realtor. I could do it, you can do it too. Cheers."
"I was nervous at first to list without an agent but the FSBO's website provided all the information and documentation required to sell it on your own. The FSBO customer service team was excellent support throughout the whole transition. It does take a bit longer to sell without an agent but it was worth it as the agent's fees went to me instead! I will strongly recommend this method to anyone who asks me and I will do it again if and when that times comes again!"
"Dear Rob and staff:
We cannot thank you enough for the excellent service you have provided to us and we are so grateful and thankful to have used the FSBO platform to sell our home.
When we originally listed our home on January 29th of this year with a real estate company on the Island, our frustrations began. After 2 months of them doing absolutely nothing for us, with no communication and terrible service, I realized that there is no person better to sell our home than us, the owners.
After checking out other sites, I found your site to be the most comprehensive, user friendly and most of all you and your staff were so quick to get back to us with absolutely any questions I had. Not only was your response time amazing but any changes that I suggested to add on your website were done within minutes.
I honestly feel in this day and age of technology and having complete access to the MLS service, nobody should be using a Realtor. They make way too much commission and do actually very little for the seller.
I can't say enough positive things about your company and service, Rob. We sold our home in 5 weeks and although we did cooperate with a Realtor for the selling side of the business, the money saved on the listing side was fabulous. We are going to Italy now as a result of these savings - one more place I will be able to strike off the "bucket list".
Look forward to getting those "Sold" stickers up on our sign. I'm sure it will give the neighbours something to talk about.
Thanks Rob to you, Jen, Francine and Sylvie at Times Realty Group.
"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."
With FSBO, you ALWAYS SAVE approximately HALF of the commission you would normally pay a full service agent.
