All we needed - AND in one affordable package!

published

After spending over 12 months and almost $10,000 on real estates and marketing fees, we decided to try to sell our house just one more time using FSBO. We bought the full package including the sign board. We had numerous enquiries just from the sign board alone! We gained a lot of experience from the real estates, but personally I would never bother with a real estate again. FSBO has it all, and in my opinion is far less stressful than real estates! My advice to any person who may like to access this service is to definitely purchase the sign board AND invest in quality photos as well. We used our own photos, but once we got professional photos our house sold in one week! Good luck!

Perfect service and fast response

published

If you feel like advertising your property yourself and you are confident with negotiations, this website and staff will enable you to do all the rest quickly and efficiently. They really are super fast and helpful, even outside of business hours. I will continue to use them as the cost is relatively small compared to the massive fees saved from agents.

Great way for landlord's to self lease

published

Very easy to use and great for landlord's to rent thier own properties, hassle free. Being able to upgrade ads to top tier is the only drawback. Other than that highly recommend

As Simple and Pain-free as Advertised!

published

This was the first time using the FSBO service for sale of property after having used the service for letting properties over the past three years - and the experience was as easy and streamlined as always!
Colin and the team were great to deal with, available over wide ranging hours to answer any queries I had.
I was selling land rather than a home so there was no need for open inspections or anything like that. I could answer queries that would invariably have been relayed to me by a real estate agent if they were involved, making it a more streamlined process for both the Purchaser and myself.
Overall, a great service at fantastic value - only a fraction of what it would've cost me had I listed with an agent!

Would never use an agent again!

published

I was very reluctant at first as so many people thought I was crazy for not using an agent to sell. I took the photos myself and within 2 days of listing we had received and accepted an offer! This was before we even received the For Sale sign in the post! Everything went smoothly and both us and the new owner were very grateful to meet each other in person. I don't think our previous agent was happy with us but we saved $10K by selling ourselves - so worth it!!!

Very Efficient

published

The ease of the system, and the assistance received from Colin and Alice in installing it, and then my updating current details from time to time while advertising the rental property , is why i have now used it on six properties

For Sale by Owner provides a fabulous service for private landlords to advertise their property on the most used real estate websites.
It was a very quick and easy process to set up my account and then create the listing advertising my property for rent.
I will definitely use this service any time I need to advertise a rental property.

Amazing response to my rental ad.

published

I had so many replies that I had to put the ad on hold a couple of time to clear the backlog of enquiries. Definitely the easiest and cheapest way of leasing a property if you want to do it yourself. I have used this company for several years and it works for both rental and selling properties.

Excellent Experience as Landlord

My experience as landlord about finding tenant without agent was excellent with forsalebyowner.com.au. I found new tenant within 2 weeks using forsalebyowner.com.au. Whole process of sending contacts of people looking for rental places used by the site was excellent.

Best Site for Residential Rentals.

published

We rented our property in two weeks saved over $2,000.
Would have rented it earlier but this was our first time doing it ourselves. Would recommend this site to landlords as the site has everything you need. We will use it again!

Easy Peasy!

published

A soft market in our area resulted in a longer than expected selling cycle. At the end of the day, it was sold with no trouble, via the presentation on the various real estate websites. The best part is, no commissions were paid to a sales agent that would have done little more. We would use this service again. Thank you 'For Sale By Owner'.

Questions & Answers

Penny

Pennyasked

Hi

Could I please ask what the process is when you actually get an offer on your property.
With the agents they provide a contract that has the 48 hour cool down period clause.. How is this incorporated into the sale with For Sale by Owner.? This is the part of the process I am a little confused over.

many thanks

Hi Penny. Even when using a traditional real estate agent, vendors still need to engage their own conveyancer/solicitor/settlement agent to handle all of the paperwork apart from the contract itself. When selling yourself it's recommended that you also get your conveyancer/solicitor/settlement agent to oversee the signing of the contract. Laws vary from state to state across Australia and we recommend that you have the contract prepared by a professional. Feel free to give us a call should you wish to discuss in more depth.
