Sell your house in the 21st Century.
The internet has changed pretty much everything -- except real estate. Today home buyers find their own homes, but sellers still pay for two real estate agents.
we market houses directly to buyers
We use "For Sale By Owner" (FSBO) channels to market our properties directly to buyers. This means we don't have to offer a buyer's agent commission -- so you save (more than $20,000 on an average Seattle house).
Market pressure = lower commissions
Buyers should of course work with real estate agents, who are dedicated and valuable professionals. It's just that buyers should negotiate and pay that fee themselves.
The future of real estate is here.
see our direct listings of homes for sale
A "direct listing" is a home for sale where the buyers are responsible for paying their own agent. Sensible, right? Yet an elusive evolution, to say the least. We've got the first site dedicated to giving these listings a marketing platform.
We have the resources you need to be successful in buying or selling a home without the middleman. From the necessary forms, to "how to" advice, to other experts to help at every stage in the process (and for sellers some great marketing materials) -- we've got the goods.
