Sell Your House By Owner – YEAH RIGHT!!!!!

Think you can sell your house without a Realtor?  Think again!

The Founder and creator of ForeSaleByOwner.com, Colby Sambrotto, just sold his New York condo for $2.15 million dollars with help of a Realtor and he paid the standard 6% commission.  His Website is designed to be a “do it yourself” type so that you can sell your home without a Real Estate broker.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Mr Sambrotto spent six months trying to sell the apartment in trendy Chelsea through online listings and classified advertisements.

What’s really amazing is that Sambrotto’s Realtor, Jesse Buckler, listed the property $150,000 higher than the  original asking price, and he went on to find the buyer Mr Sambrotto’s self-help methods had failed to attract.

It’s amazing that Sambrotto made a fortune as a preaching the “do it yourself” model, yet he didn’t drink his own kool-aid to get the job done.
