Here's Why Sellers & Buyers Trust ForSaleByOwner.ca
"Susan was extremely helpful and attentive to my listing content and timelines. Very happy with my listing experience."
"Definitely would use FSBO again. We had realtors that walked people through but actually sold to someone who was driving by and saw the sign. Saved about 16,000."
"The listing process was easier than we thought and we were very impressed with the website and the professional signs we ordered. As we are building a new home it was nice to save some money on realtor fees which we can use on landscaping etc. We would definitely recommend FSBO to friends and family."
"When we decided that were we going to sell on our own, we posted it on the local buy/sell sites with not much activity, but once we listed with FSBO and got on the MLS service that's when we got the most activity and sold the house within a couple of weeks. The team at FSBO were very helpful and answered all our question or concerns in a very timely manner. I would use them again and recommend..." (click to read full testimonial)
"This website was central to successfully selling our home. We had lots of potential buyers who saw it on the website and the MLS website; having it listed on both sites broadened the exposure to the market. Our property was on the market within 24 hours of providing the information to FSBO. We had an acceptable offer within 6 weeks of listing the home! Homes in our price range are normally on..."

"Thanks to both Rob and Chris for their support from start to finish. We have sold both my in-laws' home and our home this year though FSBO and the combined commission savings are significant. The website materials are thorough and easy to follow, and any questions are answered quickly and professionally. The MLS partnership is a huge bonus for exposure. We unhesitatingly recommend FSBO to..." (click to read full testimonial)
"Thank you for the help and support. You helped us to have the courage to do it. Great helps speedy and supportive."
"This is a good alternative to using a realtor, saved thousands and the support from FSBO was top notch."
"Thank you to the wonderful For Sale By Owner team for your expertise and support!! We're so grateful for your fabulous service and the easy to use web site. It was an Awesome experience!!"
"I am so pleased with FSBO, (which is new to Nova Scotia) that I am spreading the word...it is the way to go when selling your home. I went with the $500 option and it gets you what you need...plenty of pictures on the MLS system! Forget the other guys....and of course expensive 'listing' agents."
"I could not be happier with my For Sale By Owner experience. I would like to personally thank Rob for his continuous help and support throughout the sale of my property. I will definitely continue to use this service in the future."
"Our experience selling our home on FSBO was smooth and quick, with better results than we anticipated. Our house was sold in less than a month and we enjoyed getting to know our buyers, as opposed to communicating through a realtor. Our FSBO broker was ready to answer any questions (day or night!) and walk us through the paperwork for listing on MLS. Now that we know how it's done, we highly..." (click to read full testimonial)
"This was definitely a 'rewarding' experience!! Rob and Chris were very quick to respond to any questions we had. We'll for sure use this method/process to sell our next house."
"FSBO worked as efficiently or even more efficiently than going through a realtor. And sold our place for asking price with no realtor fees - big savings. Biggest plus for using FSBO is being able to put a lot more information in the listing as compared to the much more restrictive Realtor.ca/MLS listing - more pictures and verbiage on important points and features of the property. Also..." (click to read full testimonial)
"Thanks for offering a great service for a really low price. Although the house still sold using the buyer's realtor, it saved me about $8000 in listing realtor fees. I will definitely use your service again."
"After listing with an agent for 10 months and no offer, we decided to try FSBO. Within a month we had generated a lot of interest and sold the house. It was nice to feel some control of the sale, to be able to talk with potential buyers in person, and have immediate feedback from realtors who came through. Being listed on realtor.ca, welcoming realtors with a standard buyer's commission, and a..." (click to read full testimonial)

They are provided as interactive PDF files for ease of use.

Shown here is an example of what the feature sheet template looks like, with room for 6 photos.
This handy feature is included in all of our packages.
Complete & Relevant Listing Data
All of our packages give you the ability to fill out a variety of data fields to ensure a complete and accurate listing. These fields include the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage, lot size, parking, year built, room dimensions, fire place, air conditioning, hot tub, pool, and much more.
All of this additional information helps your property be represented in a professional manner.
Automatic Google Indexing
Every day, we automatically submit all of our listings to Google using an XML sitemap system specifically designed for search engines. These sitemaps are accessible to all search engines, meaning that others are easily able to crawl our listings, too.
All of our listings are submitted and indexed by most major search engines, giving our customers more exposure on Google and other popular search engines.
SPAM Prevention System
Using a combination of formulas, we have a custom built spam prevention system in place that filters out the majority of junk and scam attacks from getting through to you. When someone sends an email to you through your listing's contact form, we strive to detect and block messages that do not appear to be legitimate, increasing your online safety. It also saves you from the inconvenience of having to sort through several fraudulent or spammy messages.
However, it's still important to use common sense and to ensure that all prospective buyers view your property in person before any agreements are made.
Private Website Linking
Do you already have your own website to help promote your listing?
At For Sale By Owner Inc., we encourage our customers to list their property on multiple websites to further increase their exposure. Simply paste in the URL into the "Private Website Link" field when you add or edit your listing, and a personalized button will appear on your listing that goes to the external link.
Virtual Tour Linking
Did you get a professional virtual tour done of your property? If so, add the link to your listing and a virtual tour button will appear for users to click on in order to view it.
This allows potential buyers to get an even better impression of your property and is therefore a highly valuable selling tool.
Audio Voice-Overs & Video Linking
Your listing will be seen and heard better with an embedded voice-over recording and a link to your own video.
Video adds a rich user experience, while an audio recording that summarizes your listing gives it a personal touch.
Online Support & Tips for Success
We have various guides available for free on our website to help you make the most out of your selling experience.
Topics include preparing yourself and the property for sale, property inspections, using social media to promote your listing, showing your home, documentation, working with buyer's agents, and much more.

7 Days a Week Listing Services
We strive to be available 7 days a week to support you with your listing, including MLS® System services.
Listing Advertised on REALTOR.ca
Be seen on Canada's largest real estate website by getting a posting of your property on REALTOR.ca.
All British Columbia REALTOR.ca mere postings are loaded to the local real estate board that is closest to the property's physical location. For more details, please click on the "MLS® System Listing on Your Local Board" section of this page.
Did you know that the REALTOR.ca and MLS.ca websites are actually the same website? If you type the address MLS.ca into a web browser, your browser will redirect you to REALTOR.ca. Many people don't know this, so we've taken a moment to explain it to make things more clear to our sellers.
With a mere listing on REALTOR.ca, your property will receive maximum exposure to the most serious buyers and real estate agents, with the flexibility of still being able to sell privately without commission.
Open House Data on REALTOR.ca
Announce Your Open Houses on REALTOR.ca!
(Unlimited times for the duration of your listing)
With this service, the brokerage will update the REALTOR.ca website with your open house schedule for up to 4 weeks in advance. This will allow for your REALTOR.ca listing to come up in a search result for any buyer or agent who has used the Open House search parameter on the REALTOR.ca website when searching for available properties to view.
30 Photos on REALTOR.ca
Show up to 30 interior/exterior photos of your property on your REALTOR.ca listing.
In addition to the 40 photos that you can show on your ForSaleByOwner.ca listing, you can also have 30 photos displayed on the REALTOR.ca website. Any combination of exterior and interior photos is acceptable.
REALTOR.ca Paperwork Assistance
Worried about filling out the REALTOR.ca paperwork? Don't be! We make it easy, and it's included in our pricing!
We fill out the forms with you and then you e-sign them. It's that simple!
After 22+ years helping people sell on their own, we know that some people may feel a little overwhelmed with the whole sales process, and the paperwork is usually the number #1 source of the stress. We take most of the "work" out of doing the paperwork - so you don't need to worry about it!
Learn more by visiting our Paperwork Assistance page.
MLS® System Listing on Your Local Board
We load your MLS® System listing to your local real estate board!
Our brokerage members belong to multiple local real estate boards throughout Canada.
This allows us to offer a premium service on our REALTOR.ca listings, because each listing is actually loaded to the local real estate board that is closest to the property's physical location.
This means that your REALTOR.ca listing will be fully visible to the local real estate agents in your area, and to the general public, giving your listing FULL exposure on the MLS® System & REALTOR.ca.
You can learn more about local boards on our "What is a Local Board?" page.
If you would like clarification about local boards, please call us anytime on our toll-free number at 1-800-831-3726 ext. 101.
Auto-Forwarding of REALTOR.ca Inquiries
Since your property will be publicly posted on the REALTOR.ca website under our listing brokerage, several interested parties will inquire right on REALTOR.ca as opposed to your listing here on ForSaleByOwner.ca. Since your MLS® System posting can only have the brokerage's contact information on it, we have a solution that automatically catches these inquiries and then immediately forwards them to you so you don't miss a thing.
Your local board listing will also be accessible to real estate agents via their internal systems, which have their own messaging platforms. Our customized auto-forwarding system also recognizes these inquiries so that you receive them all!
Property Title Search
No need to hit up your registry and pay the fee to request this documentation, as we will take care of it for you!
There are no additional fees for this service.
Property Evaluation Tools - Pricing
Need help pricing your property? The Sold Data reports we supply contain real MLS® System market data based on the comparable criteria that you choose. Each report request will include up to a maximum of 8 comparable properties in PDF format, and each seller can make up to 2 separate report requests.
Please note that this service is currently offered in all areas of BC except Chilliwack and Powell River at this time.
Local Board Included!*
* Exceptions: Some boards in British Columbia charge extra fees to be listed on their local boards. They are as follows:
• Chilliwack: $100
• Fraser Valley: $100

If you would like clarification about local boards, please call us anytime on our toll-free number at 1-800-831-3726 ext. 101.
MLS® Service - Coming Back Soon!
We are currently in the process of switching brokerages in British Columbia, so our MLS® System service is temporarily unavailable. Please check back soon!
However, we have reduced our FSBO-only package price that you can enjoy in the meantime, which you can freely upgrade later to our REALTOR.ca package once we are offering it again, by simply paying the difference.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, but please know that we are working very hard to resume service in your area as quickly as possible.
Please let us know if you have any further questions by calling us toll-free at 1-800-831-3726 ext 101. Thank you.
