Frequently Asked Questions

1. What comes with FBSO Method? How do I use it, and how is it delivered to me? +

FSBO Method is a crash course in selling your home by owner. I provide you with the same marketing techniques that I use to sell over 50 homes every year.

The course is broken down into five easy to follow modules:

  • Marketing
  • Staging
  • Pricing
  • Negotiating with both buyers and agents
  • Contract to close
  • Plus my BONUS Module - How to guarantee that your home sells in 59 Days or Less with this system.

Please note that the modules are viewed only in the members area. Nothing will be mailed to you.

2. What kind of marketing ideas will I learn in this program? Is it only about market exposure or what to do after getting a contract as well? +

FSBO Method is heavily based on using progressive marketing techniques that are essential to selling your home without an agent. That being said, we won’t leave you hanging after the marketing plan is in place. We teach you everything you need to do and know about the home selling process. We take you from creating a free single property website, to syndicating it across major real estate search portals. You will learn what 95% of the “pros” don’t even do.

From there we give you pricing and staging strategies, as well as how to schedule showings, gain feedback, and negotiate with both buyers and buyer’s agents.

After that we show you what to do after getting a contract on your home, and how to manage everything until closing (Setting up appraisals, Setting up Inspections, Repairs, Coordinating Closings, etc.).

3. Is this program designed for For Sale by Owners or Expired Homes? +

This program is intended to be used by both for sale by owners, and those who previously had their home listed with an agent, but the home failed to sell.

Note: For those of you who previously had your home on the market with an agent. This program will show you everything that should have gone in to marketing your home. Something 95% of agents fail to do.

4. I don’t really know my way around computers. I don’t have much computer knowledge, or get on social media sites. Is this system going to be too hard for me to follow? +

In order to use this system, you should have the ability to import files, navigate through a “drag and drop” website,  connect on social media platforms like Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter, as well as know your way around the internet.   After that, the system is very easy to follow.

If you are not confident in building the marketing platform of this system, we offer a “Do it for You” service. With this option, we do all the setup, you just wash, rinse, and repeat.

Contact Us to learn more about the “Done For You” Service.

5. Do I need to get an MLS listing or can I do this without one? +

In short, No. You do not need to purchase a Flat-Fee MLS Package, or work with a discount broker to successfully sell your home. FSBO Method is proven to work as a stand alone system, training you as a real estate agent. That being said, you are likely to gain more exposure to buyers who are represented by agents if your home is listed in your Multiple Listing Service.

6. Does this program include any staging tips and pricing guides, or is it only about marketing? +

FSBO Method is a complete home selling system. We provide you with staging guides, and in depth pricing strategies. You will be armed with all that you need for a successful home selling experience.

7. Does this program require me to buy any additional items like signs, lock-boxes, or advertising spots? +

FSBO Method trains you to operate as a “Highly Productive Real Estate Agent”. Part of operating at the highest level requires some investment. We advise that you obtain a lock box for your home, for sale sinage, directional signs, open house signage, as well as some degree of investing in online advertisements.

Remember, you have to think, act, and operate as a top real estate agent. Part of that is includes investing in the home that you are marketing.

8. How much time do the modules in your programs take and how often do I need to work on this? +

Each Module varies in the time that you invest. The Marketing Module is broken down into five minute or less videos that you can easily digest, and re-watch until you have completed each step.

9. I’m nervous about putting my credit card info into a website order form. Is it really safe to place an order on your website? +

I understand that many people are still just now making their first purchases online and are still a little nervous about using their credit cards on the web. These days, online payment processors have advanced to the point that they are actually MORE secure than many other forms of payment.

In many ways, ordering online is actually a safer method of payment than giving out your CC info on the phone or on a mail-in stub, etc where an actual human is going to have access to your info. With a secure online form, a human will not have access to your info, only the merchant bank.

Our merchant account uses SSL (secure socket layer) technology to protect your information from being viewed by any third parties. Even as the website owner myself, I don’t even have access to any credit card information that you input for the order.  Only the bank processes the information.

We use Clickbank to process our orders. Clickbank is the most popular and frequently used credit card processing company in the world for online downloadable products. Clickbank has an outstanding reputation and security has never been a problem.

You’ll notice that when you get to the page where you are inputting your card numbers, the beginning of the web URL will change from http to https. That indicates that you are on a secure page and the info can not be found by a 3rd party. Keep that in mind on any websites where you are using your credit card. Always look for the https at the beginning of the web address on the actual page where the card info is requested.

Personally, I’ve purchased easily over 50 items online over the last two years on dozens of websites, and I’ve never once had an issue with security, nor has anyone I know, so it is definitely one of the safest methods of payment. Again, just be sure to look for the https at the beginning of the web address when you get to the point where you’re actually putting in the card numbers.

10. Does it matter what state I’m in? +

You can order online no matter what state you’re located in, and we also accept orders 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. We’ve processed orders from over 40 states, and Canada.

I saved $5,490 in real estate fees, and sold my house in less than two months. We were able to close quickly, and move into our new home just as soon as it was finished. FSBO Method is awesome.
