History[edit] In 1999, Damon Giglio founded ForSaleByOwner.com in New York. Within five years, it became the country’s biggest commission-free real-estate bazaar. Between 1999 and 2010, ForSaleByOwner.com saved home sellers more than one billion dollars in brokers' commissions. In 2010 alone, ForSaleByOwner.com facilitated sales of $1.8 billion worth of residential real estate. Based on 6% commission fee structure, the saving translated into at least $72 million.[1] In early 2000, California enacted laws that required websites that advertised properties for sale to obtain a broker’s license. In 2003, ForSaleByOwner.com challenged the California’s State Real Estate Licensing Laws in court as a violation of the First Amendment. On behalf of ForSaleByOwner.com, lead counsel Steve Simpson, from the non-profit "public interest" law firm the Institute for Justice, filed a federal lawsuit in Sacramento. In the lawsuit, For SaleByOwner.com v. Zinneman,[2] Steve Simpson challenged the state of California, stating the requirement for Internet advertising companies to be licensed real estate brokers violated the 1st Amendment. The Institute feels their client ForSaleByOwner.com "simply provides an advertising platform and information to homeowners for a flat fee, empowering individuals to sell and purchase homes on their own". As newspapers showed classified ads to advertise homes without being licensed by the state, ForSaleByOwner.com should not be required to obtain a broker's license to show homes online.[3] Finding the licensing requirement “wholly arbitrary”, the Federal District Court granted summary judgment in favor of the ForSaleByOwner.com.[4] ForSaleByOwner.com was acquired in 2006 by the Chicago Tribune and is based in Chicago.[5]
