In 2004, the median price of a For Sale By Owner - sold home was 15.4% lower, when compared to the price of agent-sold homes. Thus, people who want to save money by not having an agent are actually losing money, not saving it.
After all, it is what you GET, or NET, that counts when selling a home; not what you SAVE. Blue Fence can show your home to more people and thus often have people competing for your home, which ups the price.
