OKByOwner.com is the original Oklahoma For Sale By Owner website - created to help homeowners sell or buy a house without paying for a full commission broker. We help our customers do many tasks themselves including marketing a home online and aiding our sellers in getting listed on the Multiple Listing System or MLS. Wouldn’t it be great to only pay for the services, you need saving thousands in listing commissions?
The Old Way: Hire a broker, pay 6% commission and trust them to sell your home or you could go it alone selling FSBO by placing a sign on your lawn, an ad in the local paper and hope buyers find you.
The Better Way: Thanks to the Internet, things have changed in real estate. Finding buyers is all about getting seen online and now the FSBO seller can get the same exposure for their home that used to be exclusively available to agents. Tasks such as pricing your home, listing it on the MLS, advertising and communicating with buyers all can be done without paying a listing commission. This is why 33% of Americans selling a home no longer use a full service broker. Instead they only pay for the services they need. Another way to get your home sold faster is to list your home on your local MLS to get in front of REALTORS and their buyers. Statistics show 88% of all buyers will use an agent to buy their next home. So OKByOwner offers flat-fee MLS package is a great way to get your home in front of those buyers without having to pay a 6% commission. As a matter of fact, 92% of our sellers that sell on the MLS, sell because an agent found their listing on the MLS! Our seller save on average $6,100 compared if they would have paid 6%.
OKByOwner.com was launched in June 1997 and quickly became the largest Oklahoma directory of homes for sale by owner. In 2000, we expanded to offer homeowners and builders the ability to add their homes to their local Multiple Listing Service for a fixed fee. This would give sellers the ability to offer a customary 2-3% commission to buyer agents. We currently can get our sellers listed on the Tulsa, OKC, and NEO MLS systems.
