Wow, that's awesome! Thanks so much for the great info!

Man!  FSBOs are LOW LIFE!  They hate us!  Once I listed 4 in one weekend after going to a bunch of Open Houses and proceeded to have the absolute worst month of my life!

But I think that putting this out on the Rain was a great thing for you to do!  I like your posts! 

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) about 11 years ago
it is not finding them that is hard.  I found the approach is different.  I have done them and love doing it now.  FSBO's Rock.
Posted by Dave Cheatham (INC Financial ) about 11 years ago
Thanks!  There are more and more FSBOs out there every day..

Zillow has a make me move feature.You can look into it. Sellers list their home at a certain price that will make them move.

For a great list of FSBO's in your neighborhood, just drive around the neighborhoods and subdivision. The signs are out there. I then look them up in the tax records...and there you have your list.
Posted by Paul Durry, Broker Associate, CDPE, CIAS, CHMS (Premier Real Estate of Lawton) about 11 years ago
Actually, this site is pretty amazing and will allow you to email the sellers directly from their property listings!  Why get a list when you can email them directly!  I do this every few weeks and offer them free advice and information about selling their homes on their own!  The only thing is you must be careful to check the listing in your MLS system because a lot of them are ALREADY LISTED???
Posted by Mike Klijanowicz, Associate Broker @ Cummings & Co. Realtors (Cummings & Co. Realtors) about 11 years ago
Lanre its fsboleader.com Some of the leads really are FSBO's some are listed in MLS.

Thanks!  A few minutes ago I visited a website that charges $39.99/month for a listing; quite expensive!

I am going to download right now and hopefully achieve success.

You post some very helpful info here.

Have a good one

Posted by Dale Baker, New Hampshire Relocation Real Estate Information (Baker Energy Audits and Commercial Properties Inspections) about 11 years ago

Michael - You are absolutely right. I called this lady like two days ago and she now tells me her house is already listed with another real estate. I am saying to myself,why in the world is her house still on the site if she is already working with a real estate agent. And can you give me an idea of what you say in your e-mail to convince them to utitlize your services? I would really appreciate it. Great post.

Dawn - Can you give me that website please so I can stay away from them in case a person calls. Thanks. Please check out www.owners.com. Much success to you.

Dale - Anytime my man. I am just doing what all the brilliant and creative minds always do to me - Educate me. Great post.

Has anyone had any success on this site so far? I have not endulge yet.. I know bad Donna but I would like to know how you did and what you did.. if you do not mind sharing!
Posted by Donna Whitaker, Exit Premier Realty (Exit Premier Realty) about 11 years ago
Lanre - not only many of the listings on the site are listed in MLS, they may be already sold. They seem to never come off the sites like these. I think they keep them to show that they have a lot of listings. And if you think of calling, remember the do-not-call, or it can cost you $10,000.

Posted by Donna Paul, Long Island Home Specialist,All About Real Estate (Keller Williams Realty Gold Coast) about 11 years ago

Donna - I think it is a great way to get listings. Someone told me to say that I should offer to put their property on my website for free. I am going to do that.

Bryce - Anytime. Hope it works for you.

DeAnna - Anytime.

Sara - Sorry to hear that.

Faina - You right about the do not call registry list. Thats why I send them e-mails.

In the subject,I put "Sell your house in 30 days or receive $1,000 at closing. Good luck with that.

I have visited this site, and it is a good resource.  Sometimes the information is not current though, I find.  Thanks for posting this for others to share.
Posted by D B, e-PRO, Realtor - Bucks County PA - 610-952-3578 almost 11 years ago

You have to give the sellers something of value to get them interrested.  Set up a FSBO site like this:

 www.mymifsbo.com

It also captures the the perspective buyers information.

There are a TON of For Sale By Owner Websites - I am able to send For Sale by Owners emails and set them up on a email drip campaign.

I started doing this about 5 years ago and this is now my primary market. I got so busy that I had to hire a Listing Specialist because of all the Business that we were producing from our marketing to the For Sale by Owners.

http://www.forsalebyowner.com

http://www.infotube.net

http://www.Owners.com

We have a huge list of FREE For Sale by Owner websites!

Also - if you want to know how to DOUBLE your income - I would recommend that you visit http://www.Discovery-Training.com - I do not own it - but I went to it in Feb, March & April and it was well worth the money.

That is a great source of leads, if you're careful about do not call lists & are aware that some may be listed now. FSBO's are going that route for a reason: lack of money, hate agents, think they can do it themselves... you just have to figure out their reason for not going with an agent before you try to sell them on you.

Lanre I've been using them for a while now and the only thing I don't like is the hours and hours it takes to sift thru the leads. Other than that I agree that it's a great site. Best of luck.
Posted by Vicente A. Martinez, Realtor, Brooklyn - Long Island - Queens Homes (Prudential Douglas Elliman Licensed Real Estate Salesperson) almost 11 years ago

Vincent - I agree with you too. I haven't gotten a lead from them yet. But I know that one of those FSBO's are going to get sick and tired of me and let me represent them as their listing agent. You just have to continue being a pest - in a good way.

D'Adrea -You are very welcome. I have to start working on my 2008 Business plan as well. I need help with mine so any help can be useful for me. Great post.

Erica - I agree. Sooner or later,they are going to give up and give in. Let us professionals do what we do best - Buy and sell houses. Great post.

Donald - You are very welcome sir. You are right. All of it is not current. That's why I e-mail everybody in my city and state. Improves my chances of getting more listings.

Lorinda - You are very welcome. Much success to you in converting these fsbo to listings.

I no sooner read your post & I was on that site!  I just hope this site keeps up with houses that either sell or are listed with an agent.  I found 2 that were already listed & sold with agents in my area.

Yeah...like someone mentioned above MOST OF THESE HAVE LONG SINCE BEEN TAKEN OFF THE MARKET.  The first one I looked at in my neighborhood was a FSBO from last summer.  He just went off the market.  These are only good for giving you some addresses to drive by, but ckeck um out first!!
