IndyBuyOwner is THE FOR SALE BY OWNER SERVICE CENTER for Central Indiana.

We Are LOCAL and have served the 9 Counties in Central Indiana with Direct Face-to-Face Contact since 1988.  We always provide Professional Real Estate Services – Let Our EXPERIENCE Work For You!

We now offer a ‘free’ RPR Residential Property Valuation Report that will assist you in determining the current price/value range for your home or one you are considering purchasing.

We have provided successful For Sale By Owner services for over 30 years.  We have watched lots of ‘so-called’ low and no fee companies come and go over the years, typically leaving their customers in the dark as they disappear.  We have watched companies offer low cost and cheap services only to inform the customer later that there are more and more expenses due at the closing of what was thought to be a money saving sale if they even get that far.  We have watched companies offer lower than low prices and do absolutely nothing except provide information by mail, put the property into the BLC/MLS, send documentation and plastic signs by mail and ATTEMPT to force a licensed Broker to work directly with the Seller for no remuneration while they do nothing regarding the Indiana Real Estate Commission’s Minimum Services laws.  Most Brokers will not accept that task without being paid for their services.

Our professional website provides national exposure and can help us to put together a deal that will result in the sale of your property for what will be less expense and less time and hassle in the long run.

We have offered Property Management by Broker since 1988.  We do not use assistants or secretaries to handle your property or the lessor/lessee relationship.  We offer Personal Service by Ken Fisher, Broker, personally. Who do you trust … property management by clerks or property management by Broker?  Our fees are more than competitive and we actually lease and sell properties.

Pitfalls

What Kind Of Real Estate Scam Have You Fallen For Lately? Most Flat Fee Brokers Are Just That, Flat – put in MLS – walk away! You just don’t know what you don’t know … But We Do!

Flat Fee Companies often violate the Indiana Real Estate Licensing Laws by Refusing to provide the minimal services required by those laws.  Many are not even Licensed by the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency.

How Can A ‘National’ or a ‘Regional’ FSBO Web Site work for your local home? If you ever list with one, your house may very well remain on their site forever … they need the appearance of volume and success. That’s your problem! Most FSBO sites are NOT licensed and are regulated by NOBODY!

The biggest problem for someone wanting to buy or sell a home is the availability of honest, straight forward and unbiased information from an easily accessed source that will address the many procedures and pitfalls of the home buying and selling process. This information needs to provide the basics from the point of determining that you may want to buy or sell a home and, perhaps, you may wish to buy or sell a home with an experienced Reduced Fee Menu of Services Realtor® or, possibly, you may even want to buy or sell a home yourself without the knowledge and resources of a qualified and experienced real estate agent or real estate consultant. This information needs to be thorough enough to provide the buyer or seller with the data and resources necessary to actually reach the ultimate goal of the completion of the transaction for the sale and/or purchase of a residential property.

We are an ‘EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO SELL’ Company … We personally believe that ‘EXCLUSIVE AGENCY’ is not at all proper in today’s business world as it offers too many opportunities for dishonesty and a disregard for ethics to flourish. Can you say ‘lawsuit’? We, however, know very well how to protect our Company, our agents and our clients and customers from dishonest folks by using the INDIANA REAL ESTATE LICENSING LAWS and the CRIMINAL FRAUD STATUTES!

Our Company subscribes to and follows THE RULES AND REGULATIONS of the INDIANA REAL ESTATE COMMISSION and the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS. We frown on companies and individuals that attempt to circumvent the law for their own personal benefit (under the guise of ‘Competition’). YOU WILL LOSE!

We have been LOCAL since 1973. And, We are Licensed and Regulated by the State of Indiana.

List your house For Sale By Owner with us for a low, low fee of just $ ???.  You will receive a plastic sign, some forms (likely illegal Copyrighted forms), and a set of instructions on what to do next by UPS or the U.S. Mail. (It is a violation of the Metropolitan Indianapolis Board of Realtors Rules and Regulations if they send you forms approved only for use of MIBOR Real Estate Brokers.) They then put it on a web site that attracts few viewers and give it a long ID number that no one can remember.

How about the one where they say “for just $395.00 more you can list your home on the MLS” … little good that does unless you also intend to pay the commission demanded by the buyer’s real estate agent (many buyer agents just will NOT show your house).  Others will demand a commission of 3.5%, 4.0% or even 5.0%.

These cheap listing folks nickel and dime you to the point you would have been far better off listing with a Full Service, Full Commission Realtor. BUT, you think you got a deal! In reality, they got the Gold Mine and you got the SHAFT!

If you fall for these types of ‘throw away your money’ ventures, we can help. Just call US when you get tired of the scam and decide that you really want to sell your home! They talk about a website … we talk about up to 70 websites … you can find our websites! We have 44 years of experience in the real estate business AND IT SHOWS!

You know what a see-saw is, you played on one as a child. You are well aware that a heavy kid on one end will tip the seesaw in his favor …. every time. There is a See-Saw Factor in Real Estate, the person with the most ‘smarts’ wins!

Is the playing field tipped your way, is the playing field level, is the playing field tipped the other way? The See-Saw Factor can cost you a lot of money … and it will be YOUR FAULT for not seeking out a knowledgeable, experienced real estate broker to tip the See-Saw your way.

But, you say, ‘it won’t happen to me’. Maybe not. But, it probably will! And you won’t even know it until it’s too late. Enjoy your decision, whatever it may be … you are doing it your way.
