Buy Owner Informative - Undecided - Home sales help

Review by hisgrace on 2010-07-16
If I had to do all over again I would have paid someone for a website or made my own to sell my house. I feel that Buy Owner may have charged to much for the service rendered. They were a bit pushy also. I say check out all your options on selling your home before plunking down over $2,000 with Buy Owner. That is what we payed. At least play hard to get and they may give you a better deal. It is still better than a Realtor but you don't pay with them if the house doesn't sell. The down side is you pay considerable more when it does.

They do offer some good tips and you can ask questions long after you have placed your ad with them. Our house has not sold yet so I am not sure how much help I may need to ask them for or just how much they will give before we are finished with them. We do get the add for ever if necessary.(I pray it isn't.)Considering the forever possibility we may have got a good deal with what we payed (Ha ha).And you can connect your add to Craig s list. I have not checked out all the possible features. Maybe their is something more helpful that I have missed. Just think before you jump into the deal.

You seem to have mixed feelings about Buy Owner which might be because your house hasn't sold. Even you admit that $2,000 is nothing compared to what a realtor gets. I don't know how long your house has been on the market, but you might have unrealistic expectations. Sellers often think their house is worth more than it actually is and will sell quicker than it usually does. I don't know what kind of agreement you have with Buy Owner, but hopefully you are not prohibited from finding a buyer on your own. I hope one comes along soon.
