DELRAY BEACH, Fla., April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- BuyOwner.com, a leading "for sale by owner" website, today announced the re-launch of its website featuring new technology, new tools for buyers and sellers, and a refined focus. The re-launch comes on the heels of BuyOwner.com's acquisition in February by Utah entrepreneur Jonathan Holbrook.
Established in 1984, BuyOwner.com quickly became the premier For Sale by Owner (FSBO) marketplace. As the internet grew, so did BuyOwner.com, becoming a powerful home-selling tool matching savvy sellers and buyers and eliminating the need for costly Realtor® middlemen and commissions.
The enhanced BuyOwner.com site's state-of-the-art technology refines and streamlines search options, maximizes seller-to-buyer connections and minimizes time wasted. A highlight of the new site is the QR code technology, which enables buyers with smartphones to scan yard signs and be taken directly to the home listing details on BuyOwner.com.
"It's a new website and a new company – one that's in touch with today's marketplace," said Holbrook. "Sellers now have greater marketing opportunities than ever before and buyers will have all of the information they need at their fingertips, making home sales without a broker - or the 6% commission - easier than ever."
Features of the new user-friendly site include: saved searches and RSS feeds; expanded photo and text display; an open house scheduler tool; a flyer creation tool; expanded syndication partners like Yahoo! Real Estate; an HTML assistant for posting on craigslist and other classified sites; and much more. Additional buyer tools will be added in May 2011.
Since 1984, BuyOwner.com has positioned itself as the optimal place for those seeking homes to find one that best matches their real estate needs. Utah entrepreneur Jonathan Holbrook purchased the Florida-based company in February 2011. For more information, please visit www.buyowner.com.
