About Us

 

HBO Chicago is a Chicago-land area ‘For Sale By Owner’ service available for those in the Northern portion of IL. HBO Chicago can assist you in all aspects of advertising your property, not to mention with other real estate needs such as: finding a new home, leasing, property management, and construction. 

 

If you’re like many home sellers in the Chicago area, the transaction is less about how much money you’ll make and more about mitigating losses. With home prices in a free fall for the past several years, many sellers are listing their homes for less than they paid – and sometimes even less than they owe on their mortgage.

That can make a five percent commission for a full-service Realtor difficult to spend, and thus the increase in popularity of flat-fee listing service. These services offer many of the same benefits of a full-service brokerage house, like MLS exposure and contract support, for a one-time fee in the range of a few hundred dollars. These services are sort of a middle ground between truly offering a home For Sale By Owner and going with a full-service Realtor.

While many homeowners are enticed by the substantial savings in commissions, these services are not for everyone. David Bovyn of HBOChicagoChicago’s largest flat-fee listing service, notes that a good candidate for using a flat-fee service is someone who has the time and communication skills to field their own inquiry calls and conduct their own showings. “If you can make that commitment, then we are available to help with the rest,” he said.
