For Sale By Realtor

May 26, 2006 at 12:30pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Last week I noted that there seem to be a lot of For Sale signs in Lincoln yards. I’ve noticed another trend lately: For Sale By Owner signs turning into realtor signs. The FSBO approach must not be working out too well.

I also noticed for the first time a sign for “Nebraska Home Sales” (I think). I’ve never heard of them before. The realtor was listed as Rich Rodenberg. Is the owner of Bike Peddlers getting into real estate?

yeah he has been into the real estate thing for a while now.  He has also sold bike pedelars and walton trail co.

Thinking maybe the realty thing kept him too busy to run a good bike shop.  I had two instances there that made me stay away.

nobody compares to the monkey wrench

I had one instance that made me stay away (Mrs. Rodenberg).

For what it’s worth, I’m trying to sell my home through a realtor and I’m not having much luck.  We’re lowering the price in hopes of generating some traffic to the house.

In my frustration I have been looking into For Sale by Owner options and they all appear to come with hefty advertising fees.  To get something that is close but not comparable to the advertising we’re getting through a realtor will cost about $1,000.
