To all the team at For Sale By Owner:
A huge thankyou for the opportunity to sell my home through your website. Everything worked out well and I accepted an offer after only 4 days on the net.
The price was good and I will certainly be spreading the word about this alternate way of selling a home.
I have sold many homes before but what a waste of money paid in commission I had an inspection at 8 pm and 10 pm no agent will do this for you I recommend this method of sales to everyone as you are in charge you make changes online anytime as many times as you wish.
We left Australia about 6 weeks ago and had a friend look after the open houses. More testament to the fact that selling your own home is easy. We made a few mistakes in the beginning and have learnt from it. As we are still away overseas we can’t send a photo yet but we will !! And a glowing testimonial.
Thanks for your help, appreciated the experience and the savings (around $10,000 after all the advertising and other costs).
After a long settlement, the home has now settled, yippee.
I would just like to say how impressed I was with the service you have given us during our selling time.
You made it a very easy process and if we were selling again would most definitely use you.
Thank you for all your efforts

Listing with an agent for 5 months while they were playing sabotaging games with each other and now going through your site we sold in 3 weeks and $20,000 in front.
Our property should settle on 28 March.
I’m very happy with the outcome. We will be using your site from now on.
Sold in 2 weeks! This is the second time I’ve used this website. Thankyou “For Sale by Owner,” you made it Too Easy and saved me a small fortune!
Thanks so much to all of you at FOR SALE BY OWNER, this is the third time I’ve had a great result and so promptly because of listing our property for sale & rent with you. Frankly, it has been so much less stressful than previously when we had to deal with Real Estate agents. All the way along my wife and I knew where we stood when dealing directly with potential buyers and, on this occasion, renters.
The people (there were a lot more than I expected) who responded to our ad seemed very friendly, relaxed and easy to deal with when they found out they were dealing with the owner directly. Thanks for helping us to be in control and thanks for being there whenever we had a question.
I wish I could tell everyone to give FOR SALE BY OWNER a go!

We decided to use For Sale By Owner when we did not have any success with local agents.
As we had already paid over $2600 to an agent for no result, this method was extremely inexpensive. It was easy to set up and manage, and we had instant enquiries. People were also very happy not to have to deal with an agent and be able to speak with the owner directly about the property.
I would certainly use this service again.

Listing with ForSaleByOwner was an excellent idea. The team at For Sale By Owner were always on hand to answer any questions we had and would particularly like to thank Colin.
We saved over $10,000 in advertising fees from the local agents and we got far more than the local agents had valued our property for. Being your own real-estate agent was a real advantage. We knew our property inside and out, it’s previous history and all the improvements we had done ourselves.
We were so impressed with FSBO we recommended them to our friend. She placed her property with FSBO and, again, got far more for her property than the local real-estate agents quoted and she is now Under Contract.
My experience with forsalebyowner was excellent. Cheap, easy, efficient, helpful and successful wraps up this company. I highly recommend forsalebyowner to anyone else who, like myself, wishes to sell their home themselves.
I express endless gratitude to forsalebyowner for the ease of which I sold my home.
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!

We have now used “ForSaleByOwner” on multiple occasions to both sell and rent our properties.
On each occasion, the service has been first class, prompt, efficient and easy to follow.
Thanks, Colin and team.

Choosing to use “For Sale by owner” for the sale of my property was the best decision I could have made. It was easy to follow the instructions on their site, with templates for designing ads and brochures to assist with advertising and promotion. I also appreciated the option of choosing either a cheaper for sale sign or more expensive one and being able to take and upload my own photos rather than paying an expensive photographer.
I also did a letterbox drop around the area of my brochures. I only had to hold 3 opens before having an offer I accepted. The whole process was dealt with quickly and easily. I have saved myself approximately $15,000 in agent fees and couldn’t be happier. I would highly recommend the use of “For Sale by Owner” by anyone to sell their property.
For me, the decision was easy as the cost for their process is so small compared to agent fees why not just have a go. You have only a small amount to lose if you can’t sell it yourself and a lot to gain!
My husband’s brother and his wife sold in Tasmania recently through FSBO after many months of no success with traditional methods. They recommended FSBO to my husband and he suggested we use it for the sale of our house. Achieving the house sale was my project and I was reluctant to try it given a less than professional knowledge of computers and limited time to devote to an unknown process.
However, I succeeded in setting up the advertisement with little trouble and my husband took the photos. I had occasion to call FSBO once and email a couple of times to make sure I was on the right track. All communications were attended to promptly and courteously.
We had 4 inspections in the first week and 3 good offers. The process through FSBO was simple and successful. We were not really prepared to handle the multiple offers so early in the marketing phase and we were very fortunate to get to contract stage within the first fortnight.
I am not sure how much money we have saved using FSBO, however, it is a considerable amount for very little effort and a lot of good luck.
Selling a house is painful at the best of times, even worse when you try to sell a “lifestyle” property in an area where many similar properties are also on the market. The structure of the service from FSBO and their excellent website allowed instant changes of text and photos to accommodate our new ideas on marketing and even temporary withdrawal at times when the property seemed to be going stale.
Throughout all the marketing and the dreaded Home Open days, the team at FSBO supported our every move and responded promptly and courteously to all our queries. This kind of service is a delight in today’s highly commercialised, impersonal business environment. I have no hesitation in recommending the service to new sellers.
I was apprehensive about selling my home without an agent but I needn’t have been – the staff at FSBO.com were very helpful over the phone in helping me set up the online listing and selling my home myself has been an interesting and enjoyable experience.
The potential buyers also seemed comfortable dealing directly with the owner rather than an agent. My house took around 7 months from listing to settlement which is not bad in today’s market, I got the price I was looking for and I estimate I saved $7500 to $8000 by not using an agent.
I would certainly recommend FSBO to anyone wanting to sell their home.
Murray Bridge East, SA
We have sold homes previously without an agent, but this was the first time using internet advertising. Previously used newspapers, magazines etc.as we are age pensioners and not great with the computer. This time used forsalebyowner and technical support actually compiling the ad was patient and helpful.
Anytime we contacted forsalebyowner they responded almost immediately which was impressive. The outcome was a full asking price offer from the first viewers on day 3 on the net and 9 responses in 6 weeks. Conveyancers do the paperwork, so in our view, anyone can sell their own home.
Mount Isa, QLD
Just passing on thanks for your services. We just sold 39 Black Star Crescent in Mount Isa.
A lot of homes are for sale there, and very few have sold this year. Ours sold for nearly our asking price, was under contract within about 6 weeks, and I still didn’t get time to use the photo board we paid for, or distribute the brochures we made up. We could sell the house at a discount as we weren’t paying agents fees.
So, thank you for the service and for helping us sell our home.
Tim and Cathy Clemow
Thank you, everyone. We have sold our house as a result of a good team effort and a well-presented property. We have really enjoyed working with you, your service and attention has been excellent all round. We will certainly recommend you to anyone we know who is considering selling their home and if possible we will be happy to help them with photos and presentation and mentor them through the process.
Tonight we met with the new owners to share a bottle of bubbly and put the “sold” sticker on the sign.
Now we start packing!
With kind regards,
Tim and Cathy

Real Estate is not what it used to be. Now, however, we have “FOR SALE BY OWNER”.
We have sold 2 houses using FOR SALE BY OWNER as a platform. The process is very easy, the leads/visits you have to the property are fully qualified as you can personally vet all those contacting you and hence know there is a genuine interest in your property before opening the door to them. We particularly found the personal contact with the purchasers after the initial signing of the contract immensely beneficial, making the steps to settlement a lot easier.
Colin Sacks is only too happy to assist you with any queries and they are always available for advice. WELL done.
