The Teaneck, NJ housing market can be hard on buyers and sellers. Teaneck, with 39,260 residents as of the 2000 census, has about 14,000 housing units all told - with 98% of these occupied at any given time. (The US average is only 91%.) What this means is that it's a vibrant, healthy community with few houses on the market - and it also means that there can be significant price pressure in the Teaneck real estate market.
Finding a Home in Teaneck
We at FSBO Teaneck decided to make the process of buying and selling houses in Teaneck easier and cheaper for buyers and sellers. Here's how: with one, central web site for FSBO listings in Teaneck, now buyers can easily find Teaneck homes that are being offered by the people who know them best: the owners. And Teaneck sellers now have a site where they can advertise their houses for sale by owner for free, instead of listing a house with a real estate agent. While New Jersey real estate commissions are negotiable, 6% is still the norm. Back in 2000, the median value of Teaneck homes was $208,800, but these days, homes sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars above that figure - in some cases, surpassing the million-dollar mark. Do the math, and that makes for some whopping commissions.
FSBO Teaneck is Different
There's another way to buy and sell a home in Teaneck: directly, with no middlemen between the buyer and seller. FSBO (for sale by owner) sales skip the middleman, so they skip the commission, too. That means it's a lot cheaper for everyone involved, since many sellers who do use agents raise their prices to partially or fully cover that 6%.
What FSBO Teaneck does is help bring these buyers and sellers together. We're not a party to the transaction, and in fact receive no commission from anyone, neither buyer nor seller. The sellers include their properties on our site for free. The buyers find those properties here at FSBO Teaneck, also for free, and contact the sellers directly. That's all there is to it.
