Highly recommend forsalebyowner.com.au, we successful sold our house in under 2 months.

My husband and I work very long hours and the thought of having open inspection when it suited real estate agents was not appealing. With selling ourselves it allowed us to speak to the perceptive buyers and really find out the information we wanted to know before having them come through the home. This allowed us to have a high quality of people view our home, which resulted in a successful sale and we were able to negotiate a good deal for both parties.

Would definitely use forsalebyowner.com.au again.

Good news, we managed to close our sale for 312/22 Charles St, at $471K. Some stats: 6 open inspections over 8 weeks, 30 visitors, about 60 email enquiries.

We did not do any additional marketing other than using your A4 Flyer for hand-outs during inspections. Having our hi-quality photos to upload helped create an attractive listing. We also piggy backed off of other units for sale in the same building, with similar inspection times. We made sure to meticulously clean before every showing, which I believe set us apart from other units for sale in the building. Plus we were flexible on price not having full agency costs.

This relatively quick sale allowed us to purchase our next home and coordinate a simultaneous settlement. In my opinion, your FSBO service trumps all the other self-serve options at least for the Sydney market which we are in.

We decided to list our property about a week prior to Christmas and were absolutely amazed at the efforts made by FOR SALE BY OWNER to meet the pending deadline with the sign company and the help they gave us with our website listing. They made what most people may think as daunting so very easy and simple.

Our emails or calls were ALWAYS answered immediately, something that is very rare these days! I even emailed on Christmas day, expecting to get a response once business resumed after the Christmas break and was gobsmacked to get a reply within half an hour!

Their assistance with the entire process was brilliant and we are now happy vendors, with our home selling in just a few weeks and fetching way more than the agents had quoted. Thank you so much Colin and Paul. We will definitely sell through your company again in the future and cannot recommend you highly enough! Way easier than anyone thinks!

I just want to say how impressed I am with the whole idea of selling your house yourself and how easy FOR SALE BY OWNER made it.

We had our house under offer in the first week (multiple offers on the same day) with many more enquiries to follow. A real estate agent would have earned $15000 for one week’s work!! The house sold from that offer and we even got $13,000 more for our house than what the real estate agents said we would get. I’m not sure why anyone would use a real estate agent these days with internet the way it is.

I also loved the way there was no middle man and I could allow people through whenever suited me. Negotiations were easier… the whole thing was easy and you were always just a call away if we had a question. I am recommending you guys to all my friends.

Hi Colin & Paul. Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for all your help with selling our home!

We found the process was simple, straightforward, all correspondence was answered almost immediatley and all queries in regards to our house were passed on very effectively.

We live in an area that can take a significant amount of time to sell and we were able to sell in a reasonable timeframe and achieve a record for our street as well as save a considerable amount of money not having to pay commission to an agent. So once again thank you.

One property sold and one property leased and I couldn’t be more satisfied with both results.

I would rate my experience with ‘forsalebyowner’ as 10 out of 10 and would highly recommend to anyone considering selling or leasing real estate themselves.

I have to admit that I was hesitant owing the fact that I have no previous real estate sale experience, however, with the support of the forsalebyowner team, the process was amazingly easy and trouble free.

Thank you so much for the great service you guys provide. We had our buyer signed up after just 20 days on your site, (bit of a delayed settlement, but it was unconditional finance before Xmas, and finally settled last Wednesday).

There is no doubt it’s the best $700 we’ve spent! I discussed my experience with my neighbour across the road, and he listed with you guys as well. And a guy from work is looking at your service also.

Wishing you both all the best for your business in the future, I reckon you’re onto something big there! I’ll certainly be recommending you to any private sellers that I come across.

We sold our investment property in 2 days in a flat market for very close to the asking price, which was $40,000 more than the local agents were keen to sell it for. On top of that we saved over $14,000 in agent’s commissions and marketing costs.

Colin and his team were both very supportive, and gave us invaluable advice during several phone calls. We’re very happy customers and we’ll be back! We’re recommending ForSaleByOwner.com.au to all of our friends.

For anyone considering going with forsalebyowner.com.au instead of using their local agents, just do it! Thanks so much!

Many thanks for your help & such an excellent service. It’s not very often that I get impressed. Well, very impressive service.

Just for the record, the property would have been under contract even sooner, however I have listed it a week before Christmas & buyer was found about 4 days later.

Sold! What a sense of achievement and a great feeling it was to place that sticker on the “For Sale” sign out the front of our property in Swan View.

After marketing my home myself for some time, I decided to contact “For Sale by Owner” so it would have a broader exposure to prospective purchasers. Consequently the following Sunday 2 couples came through the home as a direct response from this listing and both made an offer to purchase. Amazing! It has now been sold.

I would certainly advise people to, yes have a go at selling your own home, and to contact “Forsalebyowner”. Of course your company has many years of experience in this field and I received some excellent advice, just to tweak what I was already doing. I received great customer service and I wish I had contacted you at the beginning of the journey.

I sold my home in 3 days in a flat market for $526,000 which is $30,000 more than the local agents were keen to sell it for. On top of that I saved over $12,000 in agents commissions.

Paul and Colin were both very supportive, and gave me invaluable advice during several phonecalls.

I’m a very happy customer and I’ll be back! I’m recommending ForSaleByOwner.com.au to all of my friends.

For anyone considering going with forsalebyowner.com.au instead of using their local agents, JUST DO IT!

THANKS SO MUCH to ForSaleByOwner.com.au!!!

We have been very happy with the process of For Sale By Owner and were impressed with the high level of support throughout the entire process. We only had 3 open times within 10 days before we had our first offer.

All our prospects really valued being able to talk directly with the owners and liked the open honest, no fuss approach. I would highly recommend For Sale By Owner.

Thanks for all you help Colin.

To For Sale by Owner Team,

Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the excellent service with selling our home!

The process was simple, straightforward and yet you guys put up with all my calls and emails asking yet more questions!

Sold on our second open with no dramas and had buyers waiting in the background too! Cannot understand the point in paying thousands of dollars to sell your property when you can use For Sale by Owner!

Many, many thanks for all your patience, advice and understanding – I will NEVER use a estate agent again and been telling others that too!!!

Hi Paul,

You asked us to keep you updated and I am happy to say that we signed off on a contract yesterday after just two and a half months! And we live in an area that can take years to sell.

Thank you for the opportunity to be able to sell our home ourselves, saving us thousands in commission and even allowing us to achieve a higher sale price than appraised by real estate agents!!

Cheers, Kaz

We had heaps of enquiries and had it sold in only a few weeks. Seriously, thanks again guys. I will always use FSBO from now on and very happily recommend it to everyone else too!

I believe that my wife and I are about $20,000 better off by selling our house ourself because most Real Estate Agents valued our property at only $330,000 despite the fact that it was far superior to many other properties selling locally for around $320,000 (and in need of extensive renovations).

We sold the house for $344,000 as a result of the first showing of the advertisement and saved at least $6,600 in agent fees plus more by not engaging in their expensive advertising campaigns. Being pensioners, this was very well appreciated. I wish you well in your business activities and private life. It was a genuine pleasure doing business with you.

“For Sale By Owner” saved my family $20K. This is definitely the new way to sell. Why waste time and money on an agent where you can’t guarantee to get the real story when you can deal with prospective owners yourself? “For Sale By Owner” guided us through the sale of our family home.

Our property had difficult access yet through “For Sale By Owner” our home sold quicker than the average and we saved a heap on agents commissions and fees. Highly recommended, value for money assistance for those who choose to sell privately.
