List2Move.com unveils a new pricing structure for FSBO’s (For Sale by Owners) in Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse, NY.
When this business was started we wanted to keep things simple, but we realized that not all customers need the same level of service. Our new pricing structure helps all the customers.
Selling by owner has evolved to the point where it is taking market share from traditional brokers. Why, you might ask? Because it has gotten to the point where it is easy!
Let’s face it….
- You’re going to show your property either way and in many cases, while your agent is out getting new listings or at their kids softball game, you are going to open up. And it’s hard to hide when your face to face with a buyer.
- You’re going to negotiate either way, but you already know what your bottom line is and not having the overhead of a middleman can put you in a much better competitive position to negotiate. It is all about dollars and cents here. If you have more to work with you are simply in a better position to negotiate.
- The forms are just fill in the blanks so most people know where to put the price offered and the closing date. This isn’t rocket science especially when help is a phone call away, if you are with List2Move.com
- Qualifying buyers is as simple as asking them, “have you been to the bank?” and finding out where they bank. That’s what the pros do before they let anyone in the house.
The bottom line is….
In order to compete with the “full service” Realtors you need access to their local tools and only List2Move.com can get you there through it’s patent pending MLS listing machine. Give yourself the edge for a fraction of the cost and list your property on List2Move.com. If we don’t have an affiliate where you list we will interview a like minded broker who will assist you!

List2Move allows homeowners to enter the exact data required for their local broker’s MLS online, upload their own photos, electronically sign listing agreements and disclosures, and submit payment directly to the broker. All of this can be done from the comfort of their own home. The broker then simply takes the data and inputs it into the MLS. List2Move eliminates the need to send faxes, drive to listing appointments, wait for payments, and struggle with broker website issues.
For sale by owners, beware!
If you are not working with a provider that is truly on your side you will most likely pay the price.
$1000′s in commissions
What do I mean? You must remember that when you go on the MLS, your not only tapping the number one tool of the Realtors but you are also getting syndicated nationwide in most cases, which is all good. However, one key ingredient is missing that could be costing you thousands of dollars in commissions.
The buyer leads!
Where are they going? They are going to the broker, not you (the for sale by owner) !!!!
Surprised? Don’t be.
The MLS and the syndicated sites are set up for brokers,
not for sale by owners!
Brokers pay for this syndication out of their dues paid annually to their MLS and the small fee you pay to list your home or property on the MLS is just that. A small fee for exposure or advertising! It does not guarantee you the buyer leads! However,
Getting around this is easy
Look at the brokers listings on the brokers website. Is it FSBO (For Sale by Owner) Friendly or not? You should see a way to clearly get in touch with the owner. The broker should also be promoting this on the public MLS website.
List2Move sends you 100% of the buyer leads
Log on and list!

A recent poll by Harris Interactive (I believe they are right here in Rochester, NY) and LendingTree showed that 40% of home buyers only obtain only one mortgage loan quote before applying and only 28% of those polled believed they got a got the best deal! They also mentioned that 70% said that mortgage shopping is a frustrating experience! Sound familiar?
Here’s why…. Mortgage shopping is crazy confusing, even for seasoned veterans… Good luck comparing quotes. Most lenders have their own forms and hide as many points and charges that they can in the whole process. They can give you a quote today and flip you into another program over the phone two weeks from now and bury it in the paperwork. Works out well for the lender’s bottom line doesn’t it?
Here is my little secret, and it works…
Look at the Good Faith Estimate which they have to give you before you commit to the loan (usually with in 3 days) and look at the “APR” (Annual Percentage Rate) vs the Interest Rate. There is a difference. The interest rate they gave you over the phone is not a true representation of the effective interest you will be paying on the loan!!!!
APR Definition taken directly off LendingTree’s website…..
The APR formula
The APR formula combines a loan’s interest costs with other fees charged by a lender over the life of the loan, and expresses them as a yearly percentage. The APR is therefore a better reflection of the true cost of borrowing than interest rates alone and is a good benchmark for comparing loan offers.
Now go out and compare some loans!!

If you are willing to take a chance, you are motivated and you want to move your property fast consider this… (Real Estate agents do this…Sometimes)
It is called the “Shock and awe” marketing strategy, and it works like this…Pricing your property at about 1/2 to 60% of what you think it is worth… ie… 100k at 50K even though there is nothing “wrong” with your property. This will generate buyer interest like there is no tomorrow! In many cases buyers have been known to bid it up to what you originally thought your property was worth!
Hmmm…. a bidding war!!!
Probably not for everyone, but think about it…
