Buyowner.com Informative - Run Away, And Don't Look Back
I thought I was being smart, saving a lot of money, teaching those overpaid real estate agents a lesson. I'm the one learning the lesson. I first signed up with Buyowner, paid my $4000 for their premium package. Told I would sell quickly! When the add first came on the internet, I had to make many corrections, it was as if some just closed their eyes and wrote. I realized in a week I had made a mistake but I knew it was too late. I decided to sign up with their MLS real estate comp, and put in on the MLS. What ever you do, do not do this!!! And do not sign their 6 month contract, industry standard is 3 months, and that's with competent companies! Make them add an addendum, that if you are unhappy with their service, that they will give you an unconditional withdrawal, and out of your contract!!! But avoid all of this buy NOT selling with BuyOwner in the first place. Don't believe the commercials, those testimonials are few and far between. And if you are selling a house over $300K Sell with the professional! I was told when I finally went with their MLS company, that they would allow me out of my contract and I wouldn't have to pay the $750 cancellation fee. That moment came quickly, and they refused to honor their promise. Most real estate companies, will freely allow you out of your contract if your not happy! This is good business. But the Sharks at MLS, will lie, as they did with me, to get you to sign. Their ethics are reprehensible, and should have their license revoked by the Real Estate Board. You can negotiate with your real estate company for a better rate, do that, but stay away from "BuyOwner.com".
I regret this decision every day, don't you make the same mistake!
