The Buyer’s Agent adds For Sale By Owner feature to help home owners get more visibility

July 29, 2013

The Buyer’s Agent of Asheville, North Carolina is different from other real estate agencies in the area. As an exclusive agency to home buyer’s, The Buyer’s Agent offers exposure to homes other real estate professionals would not consider showing clients, for sale by owner homes. 

Jon Corbin started his team of professionals to service a need in the area. As a non-listing agency, Jon sees an additional opportunity to encourage products on the market like for sale by owner homes to be recognized. As a result, The Buyer’s Agent of Asheville has chosen to feature a for sale by owner home through social media once a week.  This is not a listing. This will be more exposure to homes for sale that may be a better fit for potential home buyers.

Traditional real estate agents work with both buyers and sellers. Often agencies push agents to search through their listed inventory to show interested buyers, limiting visibility to all homes that could be available. Other MLS listings, or for sale by owner homes are easily overlooked with this model. Home buyer’s may never get access to homes on the market that could ultimately affect this major life decision. 

“We have helped many clients buy homes that were for sale by owner (fsbo). FSBO homes provide more options to our clients”, owner at The Buyer’s Agent, Jon Corbin said. “We are a service provider, not salesmen. Finding properties that truly fit our clients’ needs and identities”. Both for sale by owner homes or land and all MLS listings are available to our clients if the products fit their search criteria. 

By allowing for sale by owner home owners an opportunity to feature their home, home buyers get access to more houses on the market.
