“For Sale by Owner” Founder Uses Realtor® to Sell His Home

Posted by Calgary Home Team on Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 at 11:14am.

For Sale by Owner condoAfter trying to sell his two bedroom condo for 6 months, the founder/owner (Colby Sambrotto) of ForSaleByOwner.com settled for using an outside professional. Despite the fact that he stresses on the website that there is NO NEED for the use of a Realtor®!

Colby had his condo in classified advertising and online listings for months, and still no luck! He broke down, contacted an agent familiar with the Manhattan real estate market, who promptly advised that he wasn’t asking enough for the property. After increasing his asking price by $150,000 and with the help of a professional, Colby’s home was sold. Real Estate Professionals live in the market, we know exactly what properties sell for, what buyers are looking for, and what to do to get a home sold!

It Pays to use a Real Estate Expert

Real Estate Professionals take all the calls, set up showings, make sure buyers have been approved and qualified for a mortgage.

We ensure all contracts are explained, understood and filled out correctly to prevent any legal pursuits. The members of the Calgary Home Team are well educated and we make sure we go above and beyond to maximize the exposure of your home and your sales price.

We take care of all advertising, whether it be in the paper, magazine, shopper, online, signs. Marketing can be very expensive and a waste of money if you do it in the wrong places.

We help to identify the good offers from the bad, especially those with too many conditions (i.e. sale of buyers home, financing home inspection, spousal viewing).

We take the emotion out of selling your biggest asset to ensure that the deal is right for you.

We make sure all defects are disclosed to the best of our ability to ensure no legal issues crop up after the sale is final.

Why do all the grunt work yourself, let the professionals take of it for you, we are here to help!


The Calgary Home Team is committed to assisting you from the beginning of the process and all the way to the end and beyond. We love what we do and it shows on our unique approach to real estate.
