For Sale By Owner? – Get a Single-Property Website to Sell Your Hoboken Real Estate For Free

Free Websites for Hoboken FSBOs

Readers of this blog know that I am a firm believer in the value-added services of realtors.  Nonetheless, some property owners believe they can sell their condo on their own.   We call these for sale by owner listings FSBOs.   There is a free service Hoboken FSBO sellers might find very beneficial.  To sell real estate today, especially in a market like Hoboken, it is essential that the property be on the internet.  The For Sale By Owner Real Estate Network (www.fsbore.com) offers deluxe single-property websites with up to 6 photos and description for $39.95 for a 90 day period.  The FSBO seller sets up and manages the site himself.  What you need to know if you are a FSBO seller if you contact the local area representative for your county, you can get one of these single property websites sites absolutely free. 

 There Has To Be a Catch

Why would fsbore.com give away free sites?  Simple – Many FSBO sellers discover that there is a lot more to selling a home than they had originally anticipated.  Ultimately, a great many of them eventually turn to a realtor for assistance when they are unsuccessful selling their property on their own.  The local area  fsbore.com representatives are realtors.  They pay a monthly fee for the privilege of giving away these property websites to fsbo sellers.  It’s a way for the agents to meet fsbo sellers and hopefully gain their trust and confidence.  Should the homeowner sell their place on their own – terrific!  The seller owes nothing to the agent and the agent is happy to have helped.  If however, the owner seeks a realtor’s assistance, hopefully the first call they will make is to agent who gave them the free site.

How to Get a Free Site

If you’re a potential seller in Hoboken interested in getting a free property website, email your full name, the property address and a contact phone number to [email protected] and the Hudson County representative will reply with a link and the code you’ll need to activate your site.  They do not send you unsolicited emails, call you, harass you or charge anything.  It’s a free way to get your own website for your property.  You can put the URL on all your signs and advertising.  Potential buyers see a professionally done website just for your property.  It’s a great way to showcase your fsbo real estate and it doesn’t cost a penny.

    I think anything that lets you contact a seller with a positive message and attitude offering something that is of value can be effective. I see signs and flyers all over my market area put up by FSBO sellers. Very few of them have a link to a site. Today’s buyers want to go online and see the photos or video. Then they make the decision as to whether is it worth pursuing. A single property website is one of the best ways to do this. There truly are no strings attached. The seller controls the whole thing and it is free. Should you continue to contact that fsbo seller until they get upset with you? Of course not. But that’s just using your better judgment.

    I think many people would agree that, in theory, it is a good idea for owners to sell their own properties, because they can avoid paying a 5% commission to a real estate agent.I am selling my home in the Rochester area in the spring. With an agent commission I doubt I will make any money on my home.

    Except that properties sold by realtors consistently sell for more money than those sold by owners.
