Lake Junaluska, NC, United States, 2007/05/24 - Just as apparel shoppers have learned they don’t need a brick and mortar store to buy clothes at the best price, real estate buyers have learned that the internet is the best place to find a home at the best price.
A recent report from Forrester Research / Shop.org revealed that internet clothing sales reached a whopping $18.3 million, surpassing the heretofore perennial sales leader, computers.
This study comes on the heels of several months of explanations and speculation coming from retailers trying to explain their weak sales. It is now clear that the downturn for retailers is a direct result of shoppers shopping on the web. The internet offers shoppers the opportunity to shop from the comfort and security of their home or office when they want to 24/7, with access to hundreds of companies and online stores offering a vast inventory at the best prices. According to Ray Whitmer, CEO of FSBO Channels™, the downturn in traditional real estate sales is a direct result of 85% of all buyers and sellers turning to the internet to buy and sell real estate. “The 20 to 30 percent decrease in business reported by real estate agents nationally, is in direct correlation with the triple digit increase in home sellers choosing to sell their own homes, and buyers choosing FSBO listings over agent listings”, says Whitmer.
Unlike sales totals for internet goods and services, FSBO real estate sales go untracked and unreported. There are thousands of homes sold every year on internet websites such as FSBO Channels™ fsbochannels.com who offers all home sellers nationwide with free and effective internet listings viewed by thousands of buyers everyday. In just under 10 months, FSBO Channels™ has gone from one FSBO real estate site serving Tampa, Florida, to now providing their valuable venue to sellers nationwide which attests to the popularity of its “free” business model. It was once the belief that “location, location, location” sold the real estate, today there is no question about it, it is internet, internet, internet that sells real estate. Just as apparel shoppers have learned they don’t need a brick and mortar store to buy clothes at the best price, real estate buyers have learned that the internet is the best place to find a home at the best price.
FSBO Channels™ was founded on a belief that the internet is best utilized when it provides unlimited and free access to valuable information and services. On FSBO Channels™ there is no registration necessary to list or to view homes. Sellers have an unlimited amount of space to tell the world about their home’s amenities, complete with pictures at absolutely no cost whatsoever. Each listing has its own URL (web address) which can then be used in other internet advertising and marketing efforts. The seller can print copies of their FSBO Channels™ listing which becomes a color brochure to then be placed in information tubes or boxes along side their For Sale by Owner sign. All listings on FSBO Channels™ remain active until sold or the seller requests that the listing be deleted. The free and valuable exposure that FSBO Channels™ provides FSBO sellers is real value, and quite simply is unmatched.
