Lo and behold....initially, the founder and former CEO of ForSalebyOwner.com, Colby Sambrotto listed his 2,000 square foot New York condo on his own through online classified ads and FSBO sites. However, after 180 days, he hired New York broker Jesse Buckler who recommended a change to a better price as the home was not getting the amount of traffic it could have.
Soon after the change, Sambrotto’s decision to market his condo with a broker resulted in attracting multiple offers, closing for $150,000 over the original asking price! The Wall Street Journal reports the listing sold for $2.15 million. See WSJ story in the link below:
