Ian Wylie and Karen Lauck started what is now FsboMichigan in 2003. Ian (with a background in warehouse management and small business ownership) and Karen (with a background as teacher, pianist, and small business owner) sold a property in Madison, WI in 2002 on Madison's for-sale-by-owner website. The experience was so positive-they got an offer the first day, and the buyers, who had made a cash offer, went home and sold their home on the same website within 24 hours-that they decided to offer the same service in Lansing, Michigan. was launched in March of 2003: 35 signs installed over 3 days in frigid and sometimes blizzard conditions! was such a success that the service was licensed across Michigan. Fsbolansing became ( will still get you to the Lansing home page.) We teach people how to sell their own homes and make it easy to buy houses in Michigan.

Each regional licensee offers the same hands-on, local, service-oriented, for-sale-by-owner real estate package, providing an efficient, effective and economical way for buyers and sellers to connect. (Search by region to get information on each franchisee.)

The complete FsboMichigan for-sale-by-owner real estate package costs only a one-time flat fee of $195, and includes an unlimited listing time ("sign up for 90 days and renew for a dollar"), installation of a professional sign and free-standing custom printed brochure box, unlimited narrative description space on your listing, up to 12 photos, and much more.

Though the franchises were all established as separate, but linked, websites, a major change has taken place. In the spring of 2007, launched a megawebsite, with all franchisees, all areas of Michigan, on this one for-sale-by-owner website. (Each territory/franchise has its own local home page within the site and each licensee provides local hands-on service.)

There are many advantages to this reinvented FsboMichigan for-sale-by-owner website that will make it even more efficient for real estate sellers to connect with buyers. One of these is greater search engine attention and placement, another is ease of use. All the FsboMichigan properties and much allied information are literally at your fingertips. All the vacation and waterfront properties throughout the state can also be easily accessed.

Also, for those clients who feel the need to increase their exposure we offer local MLS (Multiple Listing Service) access throughout most of Michigan at bargain prices.

We offer access to qualified professionals via our Service Directories (in each region of the state) to help you through the home buying and home selling processes.

Through our website service and information, through our Service Directories, and through our personal service (a FsboMichigan franchise owner is only a phone call away), we are here to assist you in this important process and to save you large amounts of money. Thank you for using our service.
