Owners.com Named to Kiplinger Magazine’s The Best List of 2015 for Home Buying and Selling

November 16, 2015

LUXEMBOURG – November 16, 2015 – Owners.com, a top ten national brokerage and a leading marketplace for self-directed real estate, is featured as the “best” resource for selling a home by Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine in its "The Best List" December 2015 cover story.  Owners.com appears in the “Best Personal Finance Products and Services List.”

Owners.com was added to the list by the publication’s housing Associate Editor Pat Mertz Esswein, who suggests that “home sellers who want to save on agents' sales commissions visit Owners.com.  For a flat fee, you can purchase an a la carte package of services -- from preparing a for-sale listing to negotiating an offer and closing the deal -- and choose which parts of the process you'd prefer to handle on your own.”

“The real estate industry is rapidly evolving.  With broader access to information and insights, self-directed consumers have the ability to perform many of the tasks that have historically been performed by a traditional real estate agent, including analyzing comps, determining the listing price and finding their ideal neighborhood,” said Steve Udelson, President of the Owners.com® business.  “Owners.com offers consumers the opportunity to pay only for the services they need, empowering them to successfully buy or sell a home without paying the commission inherent in the traditional model.  We’re thrilled that Kiplinger’s will promote this significant value by including Owners.com in its annual list.”

Owners.com is a fully-licensed top ten real estate brokerage that makes it easier for consumers to manage the process surrounding a home sale or purchase, often the single largest financial transaction in a consumer’s lifetime.  Buyers and sellers can access Owners.com’s agent advisors who will help them navigate the complexities of a real estate purchase or sale and leverage technology to make it easy.  With its extensive transaction platform, Owners.com allows consumers to pick and choose the services they require to complete a home buying and selling experience.

Sellers benefit from:

  • A wide range of services, including assistance with home pricing, securing MLS listings, negotiations and assistance with paperwork and closing
  • Highly visible listings that appear on leading real estate sites, typically within twenty-four hours of posting, available to buyers throughout the country


Buyers benefit from:

  • Online tools to facilitate completing the home buying process, such as an interactive selling guide, valuation tools and useful tips
  • A buyer’s rebate in select states[1] – returning up to 1.5% of the purchase price and putting thousands of dollars back in in their pockets
  • Expert advice from an Owners.com agent advisor to purchase any MLS listed properties and Owners.com exclusive listings


Kiplinger's Personal Finance is a monthly magazine known for its clear and concise advice on managing money and achieving financial security.
