    Street Easy FSBO Ads

    posted by Thomas Demsker

    Since the zillow take over , the price to place a fsbo ad on Street Easy has now climbed to a high of 595 per month. Originally it was 199 per month. What we look to do here is create a base for FSB

The internet has drastically cut the cost of connecting buyers with sellers, but traditional New York brokerage fees are as high as ever. NBP gave us a solution that kept most of that money in our pocket, but still gave us access to expert advice from someone who knows the city. Pat

I thought it must be easy to sell your apartment, till I started the process. Luckily I found NBP that made me a realtor over night. Lots of support and personalized guidance through the whole process. I sold my place above asking from listing to closing in less that 4 month. Loved it! Tim F. Holderbaum

We sold our Jackson Heights apartment on our own, saving ourselves about $35,000 that would have gone to a broker. We could never have done it without Thomas's amazing, spot-on advice. He was there whenever we needed him, replying instantly to our many emails. He walked us through all steps of the process, and carefully reviewed and provided feedback for our buyers' co-op package. We highly recommend selling on your own, but only if you use No Brokers Please! Mark & Jennifer
Coop in Queens
We sold our coop in a tough building and with NBP's consulting service, the process was facilitated a lot. No Brokers Please's assistance with all the details, appraisal file and the board package got us a solid buyer and a closing. We highly recommend this very affordable and easy to use consulting service. Francoise and Jacques
I’ve used NBP twice and had amazing results both times. I got prices that were just as high as if I used a broker and saved a combined $80,000 in broker fees. NBP makes it easy and provides great service! JG

the "secrets" booklet, the documents, Street Easy online ad and the constant email support are WELL WORTH the money to anyone out there doing this on their own Eric
425 East 79th St.
Tom, we closed on our sale of 11A yesterday. We think the price of 900,000 was fair for today's market and we got through a tough board process. We saved the broker's fee but-more importantly-we pushed for our own apartment to sell in a way that no broker would have-it was our sole mission. To be completely frank, there is absolutely no way in the world we would have done it without you. I can't thank you enough. Nina

No Brokers Please provides an excellent service- just enough help and advice, extremely prompt responses, and all the tools you need to confidently make it through this process on your own. If you're considering selling by owner but don't know where to start, you've found it. Katherine Ives

Using NBP was the best decision we ever made!! Thomas was amazingly responsive throughout the process and guided us step by step. We did everything he told us too and ended up saving 9% because he encouraged us to list higher than we initially thought to! Thanks Thomas! Jill J.
