Unrepresented Sellers ( For Sale by Owner) - 06/26/08 10:34 PM
I can understand why some homeowners choose to go the route of selling without representation from a Realtor. The main motivation behind this sort of decision always come down to one thing, and that is the commission. However, before you consider taking the for sale by owner approach, please keep in mind a few things. Statistics show that when homeowners do sell their homes this way, in many cases they actually net less than they would have with a Realtor. There is much more involved with selling a home than sometimes anticipated, especially when it comes to contracts. I offer some (0 comments)

Can you calculate risk in the stock market? Real estate is a brick and mortar asset that you can touch and feel. By doing some research on particular properties, you can lower your risk and make the (0 comments)

Horsham Residential Real Estate Activity May 2008 - 06/13/08 10:43 PM
Horsham residential real estate activity in May included 17 closed transactions. 6 of the homes that settled were in the $250,000 to $300,000, which made up the majority. The good information for the sellers is that in May, homes sold for a total of 96% of their original asking price.
