Fizber.com launches FSBO help center dedicated to helping homeowners sell their property without a realtor.
Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) November 23, 2007 — Today’s home sellers and buyers are more and more willing to consider doing it themselves — and they have more options available than ever before to help them. Fizber.com, a major real estate property-listing website, announced the launch of a For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) Help Center which provides unrepresented home sellers and buyers with the guidance, publicity, and resources they need to successfully complete their real estate transaction.
Over the years, internet marketing has changed dramatically. Nowadays just posting a property on any web site isn’t as effective as it was 3 years ago. “We’ve evolved with changing market conditions,” said Julia Foster, Fizber.com PR Manager. “We offer sellers who are representing themselves a menu of services and resources in our FSBO Help Center“.
The FSBO Help Center features helpful articles, marketing tips, Ad writing tips, FSBO handbook full of valuable information, effective techniques, targeted tips, worksheets, checklists, and a lot more. Home sellers are able to find sound advice on various aspects of selling their home, from yard clean-up to managing their open house. Buyers browsing the Help Center will find helpful and informative articles to learn how to buy the FSBO home they’re looking for.
Julia Foster of Fizber.com explains, “For the most part, homes change hands under a sales model that goes like this: A seller engages a listing agent to market the home, negotiate with buyers and manage the closing process. For that, the seller pays 3 percent of the sales price. Meanwhile, other agents bring their clients to see the home and the seller pays another 3 percent to the agent whose client ultimately makes the purchase. Do the math and it’s easy to see why sellers are tempted to eliminate — or at least reduce — the role played by real estate agents in that equation. The total commission on a $300,000 home amounts to $18,000.”
Fizber.com is the largest FSBO platform for both sellers and buyers in the United States. The website currently lists 1,000,000 of properties nationwide.
