Six Month Anniversary - ColumbiaGorgeFSBO.com
Hello! We are Gretchen and Mel Ahrens, owners of ColumbiaGorgeFSBO.com. We moved to the community of Parkdale, Oregon in the summer of 2007. Previously, we bought and sold real estate both FSBO and through a real estate broker/agent. In moving to the Columbia Gorge region, we were interested in another FSBO transaction, but found it difficult to find relevant and timely information.
The FSBO market information was inadequate, mainly limited to classified ads and small "For Sale By Owner" signs which we found as we drove through neighborhoods. Neither was efficient or very informative.
The need for one centralized Columbia Gorge regional FSBO forum was obvious to us. Additionally, we saw a need to present FSBO properties in a professional manner, with lots of photos and detailed property information available for interested buyers. Six months ago we launched ColumbiaGorgeFSBO.com as part of our portfolio of marketing services for the FSBO seller.
We have been overwhelmed with the response from FSBO real estate sellers in Hood River, The Dalles, Parkdale, Odell, Mosier, White Salmon, BZ Corners and Underwood Today, the web site includes 51 FSBO properties being advertised:
o 31 residences for sale
o 17 properties from under an acre to 20 acres for sale
o 3 commercial properties for sale or for rent
We're here to provide personal, customized
marketing services to FSBO real estate sellers, from photographing their property, to featuring it to an online global audience, to designing personalized flyers, and to consulting on "staging" a home. Here is a link to our Marketing Services.
