Here's Why Sellers & Buyers Trust ForSaleByOwner.ca
"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."
"Great service. FSBO called to make sure we had received showing requests that were emailed. We paid realtor 1.5% of selling price and posted that on Realtor.ca so it made all dealings with them seamless. Buyers appreciated knowledge transfer directly from us as owners. Overall great experience."
"I sold my home at Shawnigan Lake with this company for full price and no commissions to any Realtors. Great job Rob & Mylee!!.. especially after the terrible realtor experiences I had."
"Chris Mooney, our FSBO agent was extremely helpful and always responded in a prompt manner to all our questions. Will use the services of FSBO in the future again!"
"Was very easy to sell on my own! Definitely don't need to spend thousands of dollars on a realtor to do what you can do with this site! Highly recommend!"
"Another fantastic experience with FSBO. We got our listing up and active very quickly and the FSBO team was right by our side the entire way. SOLD in one day! Thank you For Sale By Owner!"
"What a simple process. I would definitely sell a home this way again. The team at FSBO was amazing! Listing the home took a few hours but it was totally worth it. Where I had problems, the support team at FSBO was there to help. Way better than the competitors."
"Dear Rob, Thank you for all your help and especially your patience. We listed in early August and sold September 2nd. My brother, who told me about this site, sold his within 2 weeks for full price and no commission. I highly recommend you and FSBO to anyone who has a property for sale. My savings were over $11,000 in commission - although I was agent friendly, I was able to negotiate a..." (click to read full testimonial)

"This service worked well for me. There is a learning curve regarding the do's and dont's so take the time to understand. I received very helpful advice and guidance during this process. I would recommend this to anyone selling."

I saved $17,000 in..." (click to read full testimonial)
"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)

We have assisted thousands of Canadians through the process of buying and selling hundreds of millions of dollars of real estate property.
"Open House" on ForSaleByOwner.ca

Our open house system will display a noticeable "Open House" flag in the search results and on your listing page one week prior to the start date, and remove itself once the end date has finished.
This is a great way to get more interested buyers into your home.
Sales Contracts Provided
For eligible Canadian provinces (AB, BC, MB, NB, NL, NS, ON, PE & SK), you are given access to download sale/purchase contracts directly from your account.
They are provided as interactive PDF files for ease of use.
60 Photos on ForSaleByOwner.ca
This is the maximum number of photos that can be uploaded and displayed on your ForSaleByOwner.ca listing.
Since a picture paints a thousand words... the more photos, the better!
Printable Feature Sheets
With the click of a button, you can automatically generate a printable feature sheet that pulls photos, data and contact information directly from your listing. It creates a PDF file that can be printed directly from your web browser or saved to your computer for later.
You can hand them out during open houses, or to anyone who stops by for a showing.
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.
No Cancellation Fees
There are no cancellation fees for any of our services. Period.
No Listing Change Fees
There are no fees when you submit change requests (listing amendments) for your MLS® System posting on REALTOR.ca, such as a price change.
You can also freely update your listing on ForSaleByOwner.ca as often as you like, which you can do yourself directly in your online account.
No Selling Fees
There are no selling fees for any of our services. Enjoy the savings!
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
In addition to the 60 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.
Find a Better Listing Price? We'll Match It!
If you have indeed found a comparable service for a better price, we will match the price.
There are several sites out there who are using creative pricing models to hide the true cost of listing with them.
At For Sale By Owner Inc., we operate differently. We use a true one-time flat fee pricing model for all of our MLS® System Listings.
All of our listings are "Until It Sells" with no time limit. We don't charge a fee to cancel the listing if you need or want to.
We don't charge for any changes to your listing including photos or price updates, either.
Instead, we charge one low flat fee that also includes:
- Auto-Forwarding of All REALTOR.ca Inquiries
- REALTOR.ca DDF® Listing Syndication
- Sales Contracts for Each Province
- Printable Feature Sheets
- REALTOR.ca Paperwork Assistance
- Online Support & Tips for Success
- Advertising Syndication to Multiple Social Media Sites
- FSBO Listing Syndication
- 30 Interior/Exterior Photos on REALTOR.ca
- Google Indexing Of Your Listing
- Virtual Tours and Video Integration
- Open House on REALTOR.ca... and much more!
Please make sure that the service you are comparing our price to has similar elements and offers the same high level of service. :-)
If you are confident that you have found a comparable service at a better price than ours, please let us know and we will step up and match that price. Please call us directly at 1-800-831-3726 ext 101 so we can validate your price.
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
IMPORTANT: This document is newly required for BC properties - you can either supply your own, or purchase it through us.
If you supply your own property title, it MUST be dated within 30 days of your property going live on REALTOR.ca, otherwise it will be rejected by the real estate board.
To save yourself the hassle of acquiring one yourself, we can take care of it for you for a modest fee of $20 + GST.
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. Your PDF report will include all comparable properties available at the time of the request, without any properties being left out.
This is an optional addon that can be purchased with your REALTOR.ca listing package for $39.95.
Please note that this service is currently offered in all areas of BC except Chilliwack and Powell River at this time.VIEW FULL DETAILS - CLICK HERE

Using our official Facebook and Instagram business accounts, we offer promotional packages to create paid Instagram ads and Facebook boosts that target locations in and around where your property is, while we write an enticing post with your property's best photo.
This is an optional addon that can be purchased with your listing package, offering 2 levels of marketing exposure from $49 to $99.VIEW FULL DETAILS - CLICK HERE
