Free FSBO Listings Database Launched to Help You Sell Your Indiana Home

Indiana FSBO listings directory is a useful new tool to help homeowners trying to sell their own homes.

Indianapolis, IN, December 06, 2007 --( Indiana’s real estate climate is challenging enough, but it is especially challenging for those of you who are attempting to sell your own home. That’s why it is important for you to take advantage of every marketing tool available.

In most cases, the ‘for sale by owner’ (FSBO) sector of the real estate market does not have the benefit of having its homes listed in the Multiple Listings Service (MLS) database. Therefore, it is necessary to find alternative vehicles for reaching your target market.

Fortunately, there is a new counterpart to the Indiana MLS designed specifically for FSBO listings, and it’s free. This new online tool allows Indiana homeowners to place FSBO listings in an easy-to-use database which can then be searched by potential buyers seeking to find homes not listed with a Realtor. These free Indiana FSBO listings can include high-quality photographs alongside descriptions of your home, and the system even provides security features designed to prevent your identity and contact information from being abused by spammers and hackers.

This new FSBO listings database is being provided by free of charge by Stacey O’Hara, an Indiana Realtor who knows firsthand about the challenges faced by anyone attempting to conduct business in today’s real estate market. “The whole purpose behind offering this new tool is to help revive the sagging real estate market,” Ms. O’Hara explains.

“Many of my past and present clients found themselves needing to sell their houses quickly due to variable rate mortgage increases. They would initially try to sell their homes on their own in order to avoid realtor commissions so they could minimize their financial hit,” says Stacey. However, they could not attract enough interested buyers without listing with a Realtor. She points out, “Now cost-conscious sellers will have this new resource to market their homes for free. If it helps only one or two people in Indiana avoid foreclosure while trying to sell their own home, it will be worth it.”

Of course, Stacey expects she will be able to benefit from the new service, too. Many of the buyers she represents have a limited budget and would like to find FSBOs. “Unless buyers drive around looking, it’s often hard to find some of the great FSBO deals. The new Indiana FSBO listings database will be a value-added service I can offer, especially for buyers who are currently residing out-of-state.”
