National Real Estate Portals

There are 3 websites that almost all real estate buyers at some point in their search have used to check out properties for sale. They are Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com.

These websites blow all other websites out of the water for active buyers who are looking for a house to buy.

And 2 of them (Zillow & Trulia) are perfect for FSBO’s who want to list their home for sale.

There is even a lot of controversy surrounding these consumer portals within the real estate agent industry because they are taking a lot of control away from agents and consumers are finding and researching the real estate market on their own.

Which is a good thing for the consumer to become an active, engaged and educated participant in the real estate market.

So what that means for you as a home seller is that you need to pay attention to these websites and make sure your house is listed for sale on them!


Zillow.com

 

Everyone knows about Zillow, it is a powerhouse of a website in the real estate world.

They built exactly what consumers want in a real estate portal. picture of zillow's logo

One of the more popular and also notorious features of Zillow is the home value it assigns, called the Zestimate.

Zillow also features – houses that are listed on the MLS with a Realtor, FSBO houses that are listed directly on Zillow.com and home owners that are considering a sale called “Make Me Move”.

Zillow.com is very user friendly, where home buyers can create an account to save searches of homes for sale and get alerts of new listings that meet their criteria that they set.

When you are selling your house as a FSBO, you absolutely 100% want to list your house for sale on Zillow.

You would be foolish not to do so because of all the active buyers that use the website as their primary portal for real estate listings.

When you list a house for sale with a Realtor, your house will syndicate out to Zillow automatically.

Or if you list with one of our flat fee MLS listing plans, you will also benefit from having your MLS listing syndicate out to Zillow.

If you choose to forgo one of these options and just try to list your house as a fsbo on Zillow to test the waters, you can definitely try that option and see if you get results.

They make the process fairly simple and give you some good tools to work with.

One word of caution though.

If you list your house FSBO directly on Zillow, be prepared for A LOT of real estate agents to contact you to try to solicit a listing!

Check out the information below to see Zillow’s listing options.

Website:https://www.zillow.com/
Cost to Post a Listing:Free
Length of Listing:Unlimited
Number of Images:Unlimited
Video Allowed:Yes
Pros:Largest consumer real estate portal with 39.6 million visitors every month. Extremely full featured listing portal with unlimited amount of photos, ability to add a video walkthrough to your listing and also a mobile app.
Cons:Hard to say if there are any cons to listing on Zillow. If I have to think of one, I would have to say if you don’t want a lot of people knowing your house is for sale then the exposure could be a con!


Trulia.com

Did you know that Trulia is actually owned by Zillow?

picture of trulia's logoThey acquired them back in 2015 and have merged a lot of the backend features to stay in sync with each other.

This acquisition started what is known as “the Zillow Group

So when you list your house for sale on Zillow, it will show up on Trulia’s search portal as well.

Which is nice because Trulia is another huge powerhouse real estate website and you want your house to show up there when it is for sale.

I don’t see a way for you to list your house for sale on Trulia directly but I didn’t want to leave it out of this list because it is such an important site.

Trulia doesn’t seem to have anywhere near as many real estate technology features as Zillow but it is a solid listing search platform that TONs of buyers use as their search portal of choice.

Length of Listing:Unlimited

Video Allowed:Yes
Pros:Large consumer real estate portal with 11.5 million visitors every month. Very dedicated users who use the site as their primary source of listings. Unlimited amount of photos, ability to add a video walkthrough to your listing and also a mobile app.
Cons:Similarly to Zillow, there really are not any cons to having your home for sale on Trulia.

Side Note: Realtor.com is another powerhouse real estate portal for consumers. However, this site is for listings that are with a Realtor and does not allow FSBO’s to post their house for sale on this website directly.

There is a way around that though. By using a flat fee MLS listing website (such as this one) you can list your house for sale on the MLS (as a FSBO) and this will allow your house to be listed on Realtor.com!

For Sale By Owner Sites

 

There are a few big name websites that are specifically designed to attract FSBO’s.

They have built the sites as portals that home sellers can use when they are looking to list a house for sale online.

Most of these websites have been around for a long time and were the source of considerable amount of hype when the first were developed in the real estate community.

A lot of people were claiming the internet is going to end the careers of all real estate agents.

While that has not happened yet.

Even though, there is not doubt the industry is facing pressure for alternatives to the traditional full service broker.

Which is where these websites fill that need.

They are targeting home sellers who are looking to sell a house by owner and save their hard earned equity.

There is nothing wrong with going DIY but be sure to carefully plan your FSBO path so that you don’t get short changed on the sale of your home.

Are You Considering Selling Your Home?

ForSaleByOwner.com

Perhaps the best brand name is ForSaleByOwner.com, this website offers home sellers a way to list their house for sale on their website and/or on the MLS for a flat fee.

picture of for sale by owner's logoIn order to post your home on this site, you will need to pay a fee to them but they do offer a free 14 day trial.

They are just hoping to upgrade you to one of their paid options after the 14 day trial doesn’t work out because it is only listed on their website.

Also, be sure to read the fine print on their website’s “terms and conditions” so you understand what you are signing up for and agreeing to pay.

For example, they only allow 2 changes to your listing before they will charge you $25 for each change.

This can add up to a lot of money out of your pocket!

If you choose to use them to post you house on the MLS, they will refer you to a local broker and take a cut of the fee.

So you can find a better deal and cut out the middleman by working directly with a Flat Fee MLS Listing broker, like us!

Pros:Large national brand name FSBO website with lots of traffic. Offers a free 14 day trial. Has option to upgrade to flat fee MLS listings.
Cons:Acts as a middleman who refers to local real estate brokers, which results in higher costs for the consumer and lack of transparency with who the real estate broker is at the time of purchase. Lots of fine print in the terms in conditions that could result in higher than expected costs.  Also the free listing is just on their website and not on the MLS. Limiting your listing to just their website doesn’t expose your house to most buyers and could result in lower offers.


Owners.com

 

This is another National FSBO website where home sellers can list their house on for free or upgrade to an flat fee MLS listing.

picture of owners.com logoOverall, it is similar in features and functionality to it’s competitors.

If you want to list your house here, you can do so for free for 21 days and it allows you to renew your listing.

This is nice if you are just testing the waters and want to see if you get any interest.

But this is also just a teaser that they use to get you into their system and then try to upgrade you to a paid option such as flat fee MLS listing or a full service MLS listing where you pay a reduced commission.

If you want to use them for their MLS options, they are also a referral service that will take your payment and then hand you off to a local broker.

HomesByOwner.com

 

Another solid FSBO site is HomesByOwner.com.

picture of homesbyowner.com logoThey claim to be “Your For Sale By Owner Experts” and enable you to find homes for sale by owner or advertise your real estate in over 900 metro areas in the U.S. and Canada.

While not as popular as other FSBO websites this is similar enough in what it offers.

They offer a free listing option which will get you listed on their website with 1 photo.

They also offer other packages where you can list your house on the MLS and they even offer an option to list on Realtor.com but not the MLS.

This isn’t possible and I’m not sure how they are getting away with advertising that option.

Limiting your listing to just their website doesn’t expose your house to most buyers and could result in lower offers.


FSBO.com

I love the name of this website, short, simple and gets the point across.

picture of fsbo.com logoThis is another player in the for sale by owner national website portals.

They are similar to the other websites and they state they have been “Saving Commissions for Over 20 Years”

Based on their website, they offer 2 paid listing options a FSBO package and a MLS package.

They don’t have a free option.

Looks like they offer to sell you supplies to sell your house such as for sale signs and riders.

They also offer a professional services recommendations but this is based on companies paying to be listed there so you can do better using a service like Thumbtack.

Real Estate Online Classifieds/Marketplace Sites

 

Home sellers who want to get maximum exposure for there house should be considering all the options out there on the internet.

In the previous section, I talked about the FSBO websites that are out there.

In this section, I want to talk about online marketplaces or classified ads websites that are specifically for properties for sale and not a general marketplace website like Craigslist.

These websites are also different from FSBO websites because they allow home sellers, real estate agents, private landlords, commercial property managers to market their properties online and for house hunters and renters to find their homes through this site.

Basically, they encourage everyone to post a listing on their website in order to attract more buyers.

Below you will find out which websites are offering this service and some of the details that make them unique.


FindMyRoof.com

 

FindMyRoof.com is a United States based website that provides a free real estate advertising platform for property owners and real estate agents.

picture of findmyroof.com logoThey specifically state that they are not real estate brokers and you don’t have to be one either.

What they want to do is connect homeowners with either a buyer or a renter, that is their main goal.

They want their listings to be fraud free and require that when you post your home for sale or rent that you verify with both a text message AND email address.

One cool feature FindMyRoof has when you create your listing, is the option to create free real estate flyer that you can download.

Video Allowed:Yes
Pros:Dedicated real estate classified site that allows you to create a listing for free, create and download a flyer, schedule open houses and upload video.
Cons:Should not be used as a primary listing website.


HomeFinder.com

 

This is another real estate listing search site that allows FSBO sellers to list their home on the site directly and it will appear along side other houses listed for sale with agents.

picture of homefinder.com logoBut it is limited to just this website, they don’t list you on the MLS or anywhere else.

Strangely, I’m not sure where they are getting their listing data from that is on the MLS with a Realtors because their inventory did not match the current inventory in the 5 markets I checked.

Regardless, there are still home buyers using this website and if you want to sell your house with a listing on it then you can purchase what they call a “Single Enhanced Listing”.

They say their site is “committed to making online home shopping a fun, practical, and hassle-free experience”.

See for yourself if you think this site is how you want to spend your money on the listing plan they offer.

However, be aware that they have a reoccurring monthly billing plan that runs until you manually cancel.

They also allow open houses to be listed on their website and buyers can search for those too.

They don’t just think of themselves as a listing site but also provide content such as real estate news, links and suggested books.

RealtyWW.info

 

This website is a real estate listing website for a worldwide audience.

picture of realtyww.info logoWhich is what the “ww” stands for in the name of the website.

On their website they state “Due to “realtyWW” you can incredibly easy buy, sell, lease and rental properties around the world, in spite of your location.”

They also brag about their social media presence by stating “The main feature of realityWW, is free listings distribution network. When every ad or article is distributing to social medias for free”.

Which I did verify on Facebook and Twitter and it looks like the keep their promise of posting your listing to their page.

General Online Classifieds/Marketplace Sites

 

The internet is not new and neither are online classified or marketplace sites.

These websites are very valuable to consumers, especially for secondary markets.

They facilitate the transfer of goods and services between people and business on a large scale everyday.

Being able to list something for sale quickly and have it reach a worldwide marketplace is amazing to think about.

These websites present clear advantages for home sellers too.

Some of these websites are better than others for listing a home as a for sale by owner.

But I wanted to list as many of these sites as possible.

So you can decide for yourself which ones you think will work for your home’s listing.

Take a look at each of these sites and figure out if you want to take advantage of them in order to post your house for sale.


Craigslist.org

 

Pretty much everyone has heard about Craigslist.

picture of craigslist.org logoIt is the defacto standard of online marketplaces.

It started out as an email distribution list by a guy named Craig, hence the name!

Anyway, it has changed over time and no longer allows things like html posts or direct links.

But it still is a solid option for people looking to sell their house online or rent.

It is a no frills just the basic information type of site but that is what makes it good.

You get to enter a title for you listing, a description, home details such as bed/bath/sqft and contact details.

Picture can be uploaded and you can use their map to show the location of your home.

Craigslist gets a gigantic number of website visitors every month.

So having your home listed here will no doubt get it buyer attention.

Although, I have found that rentals do better than homes for sale on here.

Number of Images:24
Video Allowed:No
Pros:Largest online classified/marketplace site with large scale traffic. Free listings with a good amount of images are allowed.
Cons:Lack of advanced real estate search capabilities, no MLS options limit exposure to active buyers. Also, be prepared for some scams targeting your contact information from your listing.


Backpage.com

 

Backpage.com is the 2nd largest online classifieds site in the United States.

picture of backpage.com logoIt doesn’t have the same amount of traffic as Craigslist but it does have some unique features that set it apart.

For example, Backpage allows you to have more creativity with your listings such as video and they allow hyperlinks to send people to another website.

This could be good to send people to your Zillow listing or even a single property website you created for your home.

Posting a house listing on Backpage is free, unless you want to post your ad in multiple cities or use one of their upgrade options.

For example, you can pay to move your ad up to the top every couple of hours for increased visibility.

Pros:2nd largest online classified/marketplace site with good traffic. Free listings with pictures, video and hyperlinks. Allows you to pay to post your listing in multiple cities and keep your listing on the top of the results.
Cons:Even though this is the 2nd largest online classifieds site, it’s traffic is only a fraction of Craigslist.


Oodle.com

 

Oodle is another online marketplace with a twist.

picture of oodle.com logoIt is a classifieds aggregator that will pull in listings from various 3rd party sources such as eBay, ForRent.com, BoatTrader.com and local newspapers sites.

They allow you to create an account with Facebook and actually like people to use their actual profile because it makes for a more authentic and transparent selling experience.

The listing is fairly basic and simple but like Craigslist it is free and the format works for this site.

They do allow both photographs and videos of your home to make your listing look attractive to buyers.

ClassifiedAds.com

 

This website is another classified ads website where you can find cars, jobs, real estate, and everything else people would want to sell.

picture of classifiedads.com logoThe website states “Our goal at ClassifiedAds.com is to make it as easy as possible to buy or sell anything”.

You can rest assured that you will only find relevant listings on their website because they monitor and filter the listings that are posted and remove anything that doesn’t meet their quality guidlines.

Pros:Minimalist website but very clean and attractive and support team monitors listings for quality. Website traffic is a lot smaller than Craigslist but a dedicated group of users. Allows you to insert hyperlinks to 3rd party websites.
Cons:Not a primary source for real estate listings that buyers use but could produce some interest if used in conjunction with other types of listings. Only allows 5 images.


BuyandSell.com

 

Another online classified advertising website that focuses on serving customers in 190 different countries.

picture of buyandsell.com logoSo they try to serve an audience that is more global than local.

Their listing results don’t seem filtered by location.

Which means your home will be listed next to a house in Ireland.

Not really sure that it makes a difference either way but I found it to be conflicting interests that they were promoting the below statement for how they run their website.

BuyandSell is entirely committed to unlocking maximum value from used goods on behalf of its sellers and finding the lowest prices for its buyers.

Pros:Global audience if you home is in an area with a lot of buyers from other country’s.
Cons:Not a primary source for real estate listings that buyers use but could produce some interest if used in conjunction with other types of listings. You listing will not really get any local focus which is what you want when selling a house.


10DayAds.com

 

This is another online classified ads website with the spin that it only allows listings to run for 10 days in order to keep them fresh.

picture of 10dayads.com logoThey claim that other sites like theirs are full of old and outdated listings that will end up wasting peoples time when searching and contacting owners.

They have a global audience but allow you to list your house in a local region.

However, I did notice that the amount of real estate listings in the US was very limited.

So I’m not sure how active the site is for properties for sale.

Global-Free-Classified-Ads.com

 

This is a classifieds ads website where the name really says all you need to know.

picture of global-free-classified-ads.com logoThey have a global audience and allow you to post a classified ad for free.

On their website, they state “We submit for free your listings to leaders search engine of the classifieds, including local and national brands”.

Which I’m not sure what that really means because all websites are indexed by search engines.

They do have local US based listings on their site, so having your house here might produce some benefits for you.

picture of superads.com logoThey market themselves as “your free local classifieds website” and allow buyers to select their state and area from their homepage.

Listing a house for sale is free and they even have some options for you to select features that are specific to a real estate listing.

TopClassifieds.com

 

This is another online classified ads website option for home sellers to use.

picture of topclassifieds.com logoTaking a look at their website seems to have little to no information about the website itself.

Which to me is an indication that the owners don’t put a lot of effort into their website.

This is something to think about before you post your property for sale here.

AdFreePosting.com

 

This website is another one to post online classified ads with a global audience for free.

One feature about this site I found weird is the longer you choose to list your home on their site the more pictures they allow, even though it is still free.

picture of adfreeposting.com logoThey are based out of India and the US is not their primary market but they still have some listings here.

Take a look at the site for yourself and see if it would work for you.

Which to me seems different than promoting historic real estate for sale.

Regardless, they have a way for home sellers to list their old home here and buyers to search their inventory.

picture of an lake house icon

Lake House Websites

 

Selling a lake house as a FSBO should be easy to find a buyer.

After all, there is only so much property that is on or by a lake and there are plenty of buyers looking for that type of home.

Listing your house on a website that caters to buyers who want a lake house can be very beneficial to your home sale.

Surprisingly, I was only able to find one website that allows FSBO sellers to list their lake house on their website!

All others seem to only offer to either list your house with their real estate brokerage or refer you to a “Lake Specialist” which really means just an agent who is in their referral network and they get a cut of the commission!

Check out the website below and see if it works for you and your lake house!


LakeHouse.com

 

A websites rankings for search terms is very important for bringing in interested traffic to a website.

picture of lakehouse.com logoLakehouse.com is very powerful and they even showcase their search power on their website by stating that “Google ranks LakeHouse #1 for “lake property” “lakehouse” and “lake lot”.

Pretty impressive and you can take advantage of this by making sure your lake property is listed on their website.

Especially since they also boast of “200,000+ registered members, waiting to be notified about your property”!

Beach House Websites

 

Who doesn’t love a beach house?

The peaceful tranquility of waves and gorgeous views, as well as summer fun.

Sometimes they are 2nd homes for vacations or getaways and sometimes they are year round properties for those who believe “lifes a beach”.

Tiny House Websites

 

You might be wondering how do I sell a tiny house? Or how where can I buy a tiny house?

You might even be wondering what is a tiny house?

There are a few definitions out there in the tiny house community but around 400 – 500 square feet seems to be the requirement.

Tiny houses have an important distinction as far as this list of fsbo websites is concerned.

They are the only house that I would say doesn’t have to be a for sale by owner MLS listing.

This is because a lot of tiny houses are not technically zoned or permitted to be a residence with the town.

If they do have their own postal address, than you should list them in the MLS, as well as any of these tiny house niche websites below.


TinyHouseListings.com

 

picture of tinyhouselistings.com logoTinyHouseListings.com is an online portal for buy and selling tiny houses anywhere in the world.

From their website they state the following.

“Whether a tiny house on wheels, a converted school bus, a small remote log cabin or canvas yurt, Tiny House Listings connects buyers, sellers and builders making it the easiest to showcase tiny and small small spaces to an audience of millions”.

Horse Property Websites

 

If there is one hope for most horse owners, it is that they could have the horse on their property.

But not all properties are zoned to allow horses on them.

In Summary

When selling your house, the name of the game is maximum exposure.

Real Estate agents will tell you that you NEED to list with them in order to get this exposure.

That’s not 100% true.

Although, I’m a firm advocate for having your house in the MLS in order to get the most amount of money in your pocket, you don’t need a full service real estate agent to do that.

Check out our advice on how to list your house on the MLS without a Realtor.

On this website (the one you are on right now), you can list your house on the MLS with us (we are a real estate broker) for a low flat fee instead of a high commission.

Want to know more about the flat fee MLS process? Check out our article on flat fee MLS listings.

Then you can use the websites listed on this page to supplement that MLS listing so that your property does in fact get MAXIMUM exposure!
