My unique program provided the (FSBO) For Sale By Owner market with the tools and exposure to sell there home on their own or through a buyers agent. We provided a sign, lock box, took all photos, gave them exposure in the Realtor MLS and all the top Real Estate Website. If a Realtor sold there home they paid a 3% if they sold on there own they paid no commission, just our up front listing fee.
