BuyOwner Complaint - What Did I Pay For? - BuyOwner
DEERFIELD BEACH, FLORIDA -- Had a Realtor, On MLS, Realtor.com, for 6 months.
Decided since we were showing the home, getting the home ready to show, opening the door, etc. we would go FSBO. Recognizing the name BuyOwner, we decided to go with them. Sat down with an agent. He was a very excited salesman, knew just how we were feeling. He informed us they would take care of everything, from advertising, pictures, web sites, talking sign, brochures, you name it. All we have to do is show the home.
The Next morning I woke up scared to death after writing a check for $3499. I wanted to cancel immediately and just get a sign from Walmart, take some pictures of my own, get advertised in a newspaper, craigslist, etc. and perhaps with MLS for about $100-300.
I wished I would have cancelled.
2 weeks have gone by, and I feel like we lost a lot of money.
The people are very nice and help a lot. But this is just not enough.
We must print our own fliers, Get on the Web sites and place the adds,
Redo the Detailed information, Send in our own pictures; we should have saved our money and just got the Walmart sign.
But ya never know, We have had so many potential buyers seeing us from craigslist than anyone so far. No one has used the Talking Sign.
Remember Craigslist is free! or at least not $3499.
Take this into consideration BEFORE you write out a check to BuyOwner.
thanks and good luck to us all FSBO's.
