Great rental find:

published

Excellent site. Listed my property at 11.30pm on the Wednesday evening, by Thursday morning had quite a few inquiries and my property was leased on the Friday. First time user but will definitely be back. Money well spent.

Easy to use, good results

published

I own 5 rental properties and normally go through an agent to list them but have trouble finding an agent to do it and do it properly. This is the first time I have done it myself and will now do it this way forever. You have everything that the agenst have access to so no need for them if you know how to manage properties.

Happy Ex real estate agent!

published

Being a current real estate agent (just not working atm) it was the perfect way to sell my own home. I previously used FSBO to sell my unit and achieved full price. With my own home I got 2 offers on the first day it was listed and achieved $5000 above asking price.
Having worked in real estate for 10 years I wasn't about to hand over thousands of dollars for someone else to sell it when I was willing (and wanting) to have complete control over the marketing and sale. Very happy I was able to do everything from start to finish (including writing the contract).
Very very happy!

Exactly What I Wanted!

published

Fantastic exposure, I had heaps of enquiries whilst keeping my privacy intact without one of those god awful signs that ruins your fence and has all the neighbours squawking. Sold for the price I wanted, with the terms I was hoping for. Such NICE helpful people, I never felt 'out there' on my own. I would highly recommend this service.

I'm in control!

published

We had selected an agent to sell our block of land but soon realised he wasn't giving it his full attention. So we tried it ourselves and sold it well above his recommended price as well as keeping the $7,000 commission. It takes a bit of work and it pays to be methodical, organised, honest and well informed but For Sale by Owner has a great system that is user-friendly, practical and effective.

We have used forsalebyowner before. Last time we sold our house for $100000 more than the local real estate agents said we would get. This time we made over $200000.

Questions & Answers

Christian HJ
Christian HJasked

Your opinion please. My situation is: two houses on one 3 1/2 acre block (dual occupancy). Not subdividable. Main house 4 BR 2 bathroom, smaller house 2 1/2 BR, one bathroom. Semi rural NSW south Coast. Views beyond to-kill-for. Valuation from three agents about $1.200,00. Marriage split (after 49 years!). Imperative I remain in the smaller house. My home for 20 years. Need about $700,000 to buy wife out. Propose to offer the entire property for sale at about $700,00 with legally binding stipulation that I remain in the smaller house, and have use of the immediately surrounding ground, until I die. I am 74-years-old. My question: Does this sound possible? The obvious attraction being a $1.2M property for $700,00. One house to use immediately or rental return about $480 PW, second smaller house to house poor old geriatric for on average another 15 years. I would be appreciative of your thoughts, please.

How about renting out your property through here? Is it advisable? Thanks in advance.

I can absolutely recommend FSBO as a helpful and trustworthy company to use to sell your property. If you have any reservations about showing people through your home yourself speak the a staff member for advice and guidance. I enjoyed showing my lovely home to people and most responded that they preferred dealing with the owner. The couple who purchased our home told us on numerous occasions that they were pleased to talk to us and not an agent.
And it was a great saving on regular agent's commission!

Thanks Diane. But about the Rental Agreement? How do we make sure that they will follow the rules?

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.
