I must say that on a personal note the 1990's for me were real learning years. I always had 2 investment properties going ( I usually lived in one) and began sourcing out and studying the economics of what drives real estate. I can remember countless weekends scanning the classifieds ( yes before the web was big!!) looking for properties to invest in.I was in the music business manufacturing and distributing throughout the US and Canada up until 2002. That is when "IT" hit me. I fell flat on my back in the hospital in excruciating pain. They eventually operated and found I had been born with a defective bowel. They removed it and all is well. But it was during the recovery period that I decided to go through a mid-life crisis. I (for some reason) did not want to stay in the music busine...

This is going to be the first of many discussions on why people should consider listing their home on a for sale by owner web site and especially an fsbo site like  www.homesbytheowner.ca is the obvious, the huge potential savings on realtors commissions.  The cost of advertising on homes by owner versus your potential for return of saving $10,000 or more in commissions is certainly worth the effort. And what is the effort?  You have to book your own showings and deal directly with potential buyers. And yes for some this may be a hassle. But the end result of saving thousands in commissions on the sale of your home may be worth it for you in the end. Besides homesbyowner provides the signs, and marketing materials just like a regular mls listing agent would do to help you in dealing wit...
