Is Home Ads a Realtor?
No, which is why we do not charge a commission when you sell your home. What we are is a real estate marketing company. We help you advertise your home and provide all of the tools you need to sell your home without going through a traditional real estate agent.
Are there any commissions or hidden fees to use Home Ads?
No. You pay a one-time flat fee to set up your listing.
Can I list my home with a Realtor also?
Yes, you may advertise your property on HomeAds.com even if your home is listed through a Realtor. We only ask that you notify us that your listing is not being sold by owner so that we can mark your listing accordingly.
Does Home Ads provide a yard sign?
Yes, every listing package includes a 18" x 24" HomeAds.com For Sale sign with a place to write your phone number.
When will my listing be shown on the website?
Your listing will become active immediately after purchasing a package and filling out the information on our website. If you purchase a listing over the phone, it will be posted within 24 hours.
Which listing package should I purchase?
It largely depends on how involved you want to be and how much exposure you want for your home.
The Basic FSBO Listing is for those who just want to list on our website and have a yard sign.
The Premium FSBO Listing is for those who want to list on our website and have all of the marketing services we provide but want to use their own pictures.
The Ultimate FSBO Listing is for those who want the full service we provide which includes everything in the Premium FSBO Listing plus a professional photography session*, a FSBO resource kit with all of the real estate forms you will need to sell your home. Your home will also be showcased on our home page and featured in the search results.
