Selling Prices; FSBO vs. Agent-Listed Home Sales

Source: 2009 NAR Member Profile

According to statistics from the National Association of Realtors, all sellers in the Home Buyer and Seller survey reported a median sales price of $204,900.

The survey also found that the median sales price of a for sale by owner home reported was $153,000. The median sales price of an Realtor-assisted home sale reported was $211,000. According to the Survey, "There are a number of factors that play into the sales price of a home, including whether a FSBO seller knew the home buyer. If the seller knew the buyer the median sales price reported was $150,100. Agent-assisted sales can be broken down into two categories. Those who first tried to sell their home as a FSBO and those who were only agent assisted. Those who tried to sell their home as a FSBO first had a slightly lower median sales price."
