Name: Jim Vanicek

Comments: Yes the market is slow. I tried FSBO on Craigslist for two years on and off then I found By Owner Advertising. With the help of Greg and his website I had a showing everyday and sold my house in less than two weeks. I used the electronic lock box option and it was well worth it. I received an e-mail notifying me every time someone showed my home. Did By Owner Advertising work? YES it did... You will save thousands using By Owner Advertising. (I did) This is a must for a FSBO hands down. Thank you for having your site and help. Jim V.

Comments: SOLD!  In the beginning, I was a bit skeptical and somewhat nervous about taking on the task of doing a by owner sale on my home.  The web site at By Owner Advertising was very easy to use and stepped me through the entire process.  On occasion, I did have some questions and Greg was right there to answer them for me.  I saved a boat load of money by selling my home through By Owner Advertising and in todays difficult market, this was critical.  Thank you!  -Bill O.

Comments: Using the By Owner Advertising website, we were able to take control of our own home sale, and save money in the process. The website was easy to use, and it was a smooth process to ask questions for any needed help. For those who take pride in the care of your home, this process allows you to take pride in the sale of your home as well.

Name: Paul N. - Repeat Customer

Comments: The service you provide has been the best way for me to sell a property. It gets listed on the local MLS and yet provides a way to save money by selling direct to a buyer. I like the flexibility of the method and it has proven effective for me.

Comments: Hi Greg, Just letting you know that we accepted a full price offer and the realtor is suppose to open escrow today. She was going to forward the sales agreement on to you. Is this all that I need to do so that I don't get a fine?  Thanks for the service. It worked!!!! Take care, Kindy

Name: Jim Jaqua

Comments: First, we sold the property to a person who responded the day after we listed.  Second, the process of getting listed was much more complicated and continuous than I expected with a lot of back and forth. Third,and most important, Greg and Ronel were responsive and helped me get things right whenever I had a question.

Name: Jerry McCrea

Comments: We had our home listed with a full service broker for 18 months without a sale. We lowered the price and listed with By Owner Advertising and found a buyer the very next day. Next time we list a home I will use By Owner Advertising from the start.

Name: Carl Miller

Comments: We sold our home ourselves using By Owner Advertising.  They were very helpful and the process was straight forward and easy to create our MLS listing.  I honestly don't think our home would have sold if it weren't listed on the MLS by By Owner Advertising, it made our (for sale by owner) home visible to buyers.  We would definitely use By Owner Advertising again! Thanks! View Listing

Name: Tim McGuill

Comments: My decision to select By Owner Advertising was primarily based on their  "professional" product offerings.  MLS listing services are easy to purchase; however one that includes a Realty comparable signs, fliers, and lock boxes is not the norm. And beyond product offerings, Greg and his staff exceeded every one of my expectations throughout the selling process.  I had a unique property which took some time to sell and I received prompt responses and actions when submitting  changes.  Using By Owner Advertising saved me ~$15k!  I'd gladly use their services again.

Name: Matt Kelly

Comments: By Owner Advertising was an outstanding experience for me. Coming out of a negative experience with a realtor, I found this option. Renting an MLS lock box allowed for realtors to come and go as they pleased. I paid a flat fee for the services, and was able to monitor and oversee my house sale without a middle man. I would HIGHLY recommend this service to anyone that is hesitant to work through a realtor!

Comments: Greg and Ronel with By Owner Advertising were just wonderful to work with through our sale.  They really went the extra mile for me as I had alot of changes to my listing through the process and they were very responsive and helpful with the whole listing process.  I thought it was an incredible value for the service I received.  In this market, it really helped to get a discount when we had to sell our house for such a discount. Thank you Greg and Ronel, you were great to work with! Sincerely, Suzanne Cook

Name: Charlie Landman

Comments: I recently closed the sale of my house in SE Portland using By Owner Advertising services.  Although some people think real estate is complicated, the forms are pretty simple and Greg was always available for advice as needed.  My buyer also did not use a traditional broker, so I saved over $20,000 on the transaction.  I highly recommend this service.

Name: Lisa Davidson

Comments: What I like about your program is the flexibility it provides.  We wanted to sell our home quickly, but didn't want the high cost of using a realtor.  Your service helped us accomplish our goals.  We had a full price offer within a week of listing, which is unusual in the current market.  Thank you so much!

Comments: This program provided my home the exposure that it needed on the MLS system to get realtors to bring clients by and ultimately led to the sale of my home during a very tough real estate market.

Comments: We saved ourselves over $8000 with By Owner Advertising. All the resources I needed were provided--full MLS listing, sign with flyer box, and all necessary forms.  I felt like I had complete control of my listing and showings.

Comments: It was a pleasure working with By Owner Advertising. I was able to save enough on commission costs to be able to buy new flooring for my next home! The process was simple and easy to understand if you're willing to do the leg work. If you're saavy and organized, I would recommend this as a cost effective way to sell your home.

Name: Adele

Comments: We sold our home in less than two months and got what we wanted for it! We saved over $6,000 in fees we would have paid to a realtor and the only extra work I had to do was to come home from work a few times to show it! All you need in this internet age to sell your house is a MLS number, a few good pictures and a great description of your house, and By Owner Advertising! It's a no brainer; I will never pay another real estate agent again!
New Testimonial Alert!

Name: Lisa T

Comments: I had my house on the market for 3 months and it did not sell. I listed it with By Owner Advertising under their silver package and reduced the price by my agent's commission and had several offers with in 2 weeks. Now my house is sold and because the buyer had no agent I got more cash in pocket then I would have if my agent had sold it even though I lowered the price. I would recommend trying if you don't sell you can always hire a full service agent latter on. The cost is really minimal compared to what you will pay a full service agent.

New Testimonial Alert!
Name: Stacy Rex

Comments: Flat Fee MLS is the only way to go. We had our house listed with a realtor and they did a poor job describing our property and bringing in potential buyers. Needless to say, we terminated our contract and set off to sell it ourselves. After trying for nearly a year on our own, we got a little more traffic and a few people interested but nothing concrete. I had heard of paying a flat fee to have our property listed on MLS and still be able to do a FSBO. I came upon this site and signed up immediately. The website was easy to navigate and when I had questions, my calls were returned very quickly. Once we were listed on MLS, we were showing our house 2-3 times per week until it sold and it only took 3 months! We had to pay a commission to our buyers agent but we still saved about $3000 or more because we were able to sell it more quickly without dealing with a listing agent. Thank you so much for this site. We will be back for sure the next time we need to sell.

Name: Doug Spencer

Comments:
We were nervouse about selling our home on our own, specially in such a tough market, but we had to because we couldn't afford to pay a 6% commission. We sold our home in a little over a month. The service we received on By Owner Advertising made it easy to sell our home. I would recommend them to anyone.

New Testimonial Alert!

Name: Rollie White

Comments: The folks at By Owner Advertising did a great job helping us sell our property. We had put the place up completely by owner, offering a courtesy to Broker, and got very few calls and inquiries. A week later, we listed it via By Owner Advertising with a low flat fee and immediately had 20+ showings in three days, and our full price buyer made an offer the third day. This is in a "Buyer's Market" with average market times over 50+ days. Greg Messick was extremely helpful and very responsive to our e-mailed questions about how the process works. The website they helped us create was beautiful, and being listed in the MLS made all the difference in this challenging market. If we ever have to sell another house, we'll be sure to use By Owner Advertising again!

Name: David & Dixie Woodall

Comments: I would recommend your program to anyone who feels he or she can market their home themeselves. There is no reason to pay a listing agent 3% for putting a sign in your yard. Most buyers come from your sign or another realty firm. With by owneroregon.com you get a professional sign, lock box and listing in the mls service for 1 year for a set fee.

Name: Bill Roberts Jr.

Comments: Greg's company did exactly what it said it would do. They listed my home on several websites, including the RMLS site. They listed the property on a timely basis and everything on the listing was exactly as I had indicated on the input sheet. Greg's website to develop a home sale flyer was also very helpful. Greg and his office were responsive. When I called or emailed, they got back to me in short order. Good job. We accepted an offer on our home in 20 days after it was listed.

New Testimonial Alert!

Name: Randy Gould

Comments: My fiancee and I both used your service to sell our homes. It was real easy as long as you took the initiative to market your home yourself. For my home, I advertised online on the website and also put ads in the saturday paper for sunday open houses etc. My fiancee's house...We marketed similarly...Her house was more attractive and hence we had alot of traffic...I was pretty up front during the open houses that I was not a realtor but a personal representative. things went well...My fiancee got more than she was asking... We did deal with a realtor and hence paid a commission but it was well worth it. I would recommend this service for people that are comfortable dealing with people, and who are willing to take the initive to do it on your own. We saved about $16,000 total.

Comments:
After doing a lot of research I found that byowneroregon.com provided the best value. Our home sold in about 2 months after listing and this service saved us $6500 in realtor fees and provided the potential to save even more if someone approached us without representation. I would recommend this service and use it again!
