Buyowner.com Complaint - Buyowner = worthless
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- I placed my home on the market with BuyOwner in October of 2006. There was an upfront fee of about $3000. It sat on the market with 4 showings until May. I got fed up an listed it on the MLS. I received 3 written offers in 72 hours and closed the next month. BuyOwner can compete with MLS in Texas.
BuyOwner took over 6 weeks just to get the pictures and virtual tours up on their website!!! The claim to be only a marketing company, but they don't even do that. They simple cash your check and send some high school kid buy with a low res digital camera to take some pictures that could be duplicated with a decent camera phone. They eventually, with many complaints, sent a decent photographer out and got the paid for pictures up on the web site but it took months.
Stay away from these guys! I used a flat listing service to finally sell my home $400 to list on MLS plus the 3% buyers agent commission. This gave excellent results.
