After visiting a number of owners who were trying to sell their homes on their own and hoping to convert those FSBOs into his own listings; Barrett Caudill discovered that many property owners needed assistance in selling their properties but did not want to give up 6% of their equity for what they viewed as a little advice or help in advertising their property.
Many property owners expressed the belief that they could better market their own properties because Realtors have divided loyalties amongst their many listings. They also believed that they could sell their own properties faster and at a more competitive price than they could through a Realtor.
Barrett, a licensed Realtor from Lexington, Kentucky; who had previously worked as a business consultant and has extensive technology and Internet experience saw an opportunity that wasn’t being taken by his fellow Lexington Realtors. Instead of trying to convince the do-it-yourself property sellers to hire a Realtor, why not offer them only those services they need? He knew he could help them to advertise their properties on a national scale. And he knew he could offer both the advice and the exposure for far less than the typical 6% sales commissions.
“For Sale by Owner is truly do-it-yourself home selling and the name DIYHomeSellers.com was an obvious choice for a domain and company name,” according to Barrett. “So many of the FSBOs that I spoke with were adamant about not giving up 6% of their equity to a Realtor but expressed the wish to be able to pay a Realtor a flat fee for some advice.”
