Fizber Surpasses 20,000 for Sale by Owner (FSBO) Home Listings

LADERA RANCH, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 28, 2015) - Fizber, Inc. (fizber.com), the industry-leading self-directed online real estate platform which provides for sale by owner (FSBO) home sellers with the tools and resources they need to list, market, and sell their home online, today announced that it has surpassed 20,000 home listings on its site.

This figure is significant for Fizber because the company has doubled the number of residential FSBO home listings on Fizber.com from 10,000 to 20,000 in seven months. By comparison, Fizber announced in Sept. 2014 that it had grown to 10,000 listings in nine months following the official re-launch of the company in Dec. 2013.

"We have seen a significant increase in demand for Fizber's services in recent months as more and more people are finding out about us and becoming comfortable selling their home themselves instead of using the full services of a real estate agent," said Zack Zackrison, President of Fizber. "This is an exciting time for home owners, our company, and the industry in general, and we look forward to continuing to support even more home owners in directing the sale of their own homes."

More importantly, the company's customers are happy with the success that they have had in listing and selling their home FSBO with Fizber.com. 

"Fizber put us on tons of websites and gave us great online exposure. Several people found our home online and scheduled showings," said Donna Thorley, a Portland, MI homeowner. "I saved $20,000 and sold in four weeks. Thanks Fizber!"

"My home sold after being on Fizber in one day after several showings. The site is very complete and the sharing features are fabulous," said Barry Berman, a Longmont, CO homeowner. "I recommend Fizber to anyone who is looking to sell their home themselves. I saved $14,000 selling FSBO!"

"I recommend Fizber to anyone who is looking to sell their home. They made the process quick and easy, and gave me the tools I needed to be successful," said Shannon Taylor, a Crawfordsville, IN homeowner. "I sold my home in two weeks and saved $10,000."

THE MARKET NEED FOR ONLINE TOOLS AND EXPOSURE
Ninety-two percent of home buyers start their search for a new home online.* Thus, broad online exposure for a FSBO listing is critical, as these listings are potentially seen by buyers and investors from around the world. Moreover, the Fizber online marketplace and platform were specifically designed to provide FSBO home sellers with maximum exposure in listing their home to a widespread audience.

Fizber helps home owners find a buyer and sell their home quickly by providing them with the comprehensive tools and resources they need for listing, marketing, and selling a house by owner online. In addition, Fizber helps guide home sellers through each step of the process, from showing them how to list and showcase a property to providing them with information about how to accept offers and close the deal.

The full Fizber solution suite includes:

  • Free home listings on Fizber.com to help home sellers find buyers and sell their home quickly. Once a home or property is listed, Fizber automatically posts the listing to real estate websites such as Zillow®, Yahoo! Real Estate, and hundreds of others, as well as to major social media websites. This collaborative method saves sellers from visiting multiple sites, setting up various accounts, and individually managing their listings.
  • Tools to quickly and easily create customized marketing materials (such as an online brochure, a mobile video tour, a printable flyer, etc.), upload photos, and create quick response (QR) codes.
  • Tools to help FSBO home sellers share information about their home listing with friends and family through social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Craigslist, Pinterest, and YouTube.
  • In the event that life gets in the way and a home seller feels too challenged to pilot through the entire process on their own, Fizber can introduce carefully selected local real estate professionals (PROs), registered on Fizber.com, to provide transaction coordination or other required services at a significant savings.
