For Sale By Owner - Meet

Peter and I recently bought a house in Toronto (woot). What a nightmare of a process from start to finish. But I did discover a new site that if we ever sell anything will definitely be a consideration.

If you try to sell your house on your own, you know that it can be a really difficult process. There's the decision which site/s to list your house with (and no Zillow hasn't made it to Canada) and then you soon realize that not having your house on the MLS in Canada is tantamount to asking every rude real estate agent in the city to call you and try to get the listing. As one homeowner put it to me, "Agents would call me and they were angry about the fact that I was trying to sell it on my own." Huh?

Enter A company out of Vancouver, they offer minimal services including having your listing on the MLS for a cut of 0.5%. They don't have a lot of Toronto listings right now, but the service is new and it's probably just a matter of word of mouth. Consider this my contribution.
