For Sale By Owner Middleman Websites

ByOwnerOregon.com is not a Middleman Website. We are owned and operated by a licensed Oregon Real Estate Broker and have been providing Flat Fee MLS Listing services since 2002.

Below are a few questions and answers to help you understand what a Middleman Website is and why it is better to choose to do business directly with the Broker that will be listing your property. 

 - What is a Middleman Website?

Answer - Middleman Website is a website that collects money from you, then sells your lead to a local broker. 

Question - Why do you want to avoid a Middleman Website?


  1. They normally cost more.
  2. You don't know who your local broker will be.
  3. They contract with the cheapest broker in your area and good service is not a priority.
  4. Since the Middleman Website is making the most money you pay them, the local broker will do a lot of "up selling" in order to make money.

Question - How do you know you are calling a Middleman Website?

Answer - When you call a company, ask them if they are the broker that will be listing your home or if they will be referring it out to someone else?
