Prices vary greatly from one area of town to the next...even from neighborhood to neighborhood within a half mile area so there is no general answer to your question. If you are a type A personality and hell bent on listing yourself then use the county assessor to come up with recent sales prices in your area and take a stab at your home's worth.
The problem with this is that you cannot see pics and therefore cannot determine if the sales are actual comps (do you have formica and they have granite or marble in the bathrooms? has your kitchen been updated and theirs has not? etc). As Realtors, we pay a fairly hefty fee to be a part of the MLS so that we can have access to the non-public information that helps us to create a comparative market analysis based on an apples to apples comparison.
If you don't have a lot of traffic after you put it on the market, you are either priced too high or not highly visible to buyers. The benefit of using a Realtor is that we can directly market you to the 3000+ metro Realtors and their buyers who are set up to receive auto-notification immediately upon listing and we can list it at the RIGHT price which will likely net you more than you will make as a FSBO. Additionally, you will not have to worry about taking pics, marketing, running home from work to show to potential buyers, etc. Try your way for 3 weeks and if you have less than a dozen showings, do yourself a favor and research Realtors in your area or call me and I can direct you to someone who is knowledgeable in your area if I am not.
Best of luck to you!
Exciting News!! I am sure you will love Oklahoma. we have a low cost of living hereand it is lots to do. I am from Germany and it was a big adjustment at first but other than the heat and Tornados lol, I like it. If you are here for 3 years you can go either or , you can rent but be prepared to pay a high rent for a not so perfect home, you can get more for your money if you buy and still be able to sell if you make the right buy and come out of selling your home with at least 3 years of living free :) Would love to assist you in your home search and get you in an area that you love and it would be easy to resell in a few years. Call me at 405-812-5507... more
It's kinda tough these days getting in an apartment without good or ok credit, however it can be done it just may take more looking around than usual and perhaps you will need to visit them in person before filling out the application to explain your situation to them and perhaps that will help them build some trust in you and not pay so much attention to your credit. Good luck to you and I wish you the best!... more

The HOA is the villan, but you chose to replace your Agent?
(And people wonder why I am not high on HOA's!)
You can blame the high HOA fee, and you can blame your Agent; but it would be a sure-fire bet that you are asking too much for the Condo; or it would have sold.... more

On a 203K loan, you must have licensed, bonded contractors do the work, since the loan approval on a 203K also includes approving the contractors. I hope this helps.
Discussing the options with a licensed contractor and/or structural engineer will help make sure you don't cause structural problems to either floor. And having someone who knows design (interior designer, home stager) can help you make sure it will have good flow with the rest of the property and look visually appealing. I am a certified home stager, let me know if I can help!
