For Sale By Owner in San Antonio?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Bluefax Realty, LLC

According to a 2006 survey by the National Association of Realtors, the average selling price of a For Sale By Owner transaction fetched 16% less than those represented by Realtors.  Why?  Good question.

Real estate is very much localized.  What is good in one neighborhood, may not be the case in another.  So if you have a similar home to a friend across town, or a few blocks over, your home can be several thousand dollars higher or lower than theirs.  How would you know this, right? They're basically the same home after all....

Realtors price homes based on actual sales data from similar homes in your immediate vicinity.  Meaning YOUR neighborhood if at all possible.  So if you are planning on selling it yourself, be informed.  Ask a Realtor if you know one, but please be upfront about selling it yourself.  Most will want to help anyway.
