I agree with all of Tony's answer below. Also with FHA, the appraiser is required to lower the value of any comps by the amount of closing costs those sellers had paid for their buyers. Also, "average" means similar to the conditions of the comps used. Compromise will probably be the operative word here.

Good luck!

Probably not normal, but not sure why it would be unethical?

Why should the tenant only consider your house and not all houses on the market?

Hi, Ben
Any Realtor with access to MLS can provide you the data on the homes sold in your area as well as the homes that are currently listed for sale. That includes average days on market, average selling price, etc. If you want an agent that is familiar with your area, drive around, look at the signs and see who appears a lot. Then google some of the addresses for sale and see what type of marketing the agent does. When you google the address, you will see the advertising the agent does that is not the typical advertising., Some agents market well, some do not. Many people will tell you the best time to sell is spring but every time has its advantages and disadvantages. The military and employers hire or move in January so you have a lot of people looking in December; the people looking in the spring are looking to move in the summer when the kids are out of school. August does typically slow down. ... more

Don Reser answered:
There is truth to the argument that the older neighborhoods have maintained homes near homes that are not as maintained. This stems from the fact that the Monte Vista neighborhood dates back to the post civil war period through the 1920's for initial construction. Costs of bringing an older home into central air and heat, as well as, electricity is expensive. Further, things done 50 years ago may have to be redone again. On the other, their are large large lots and beautiful styles so depending on your purposes it can be a great project. The area is near Trinity University, Incarnate Word University and San Antonio College, as well as downtown, and many wonderful churches.
