Home Selling

It's been said that the only thing in real estate that is more confusing than purchasing a home is selling one – especially if you've never done it before. Where to start? Who to turn to?

These are good questions and – lucky you – the answers are right here within the pages of ActiveRain, the top real estate social network on the planet.

Within our content library you'll find more millions of articles, written by the pros, on home selling topics like how to choose a listing agent, the questions to ask before hiring one, how to stage the home and create curb appeal. What happens if the appraisal comes in lower than the amount the buyer has offered? Is an offer from a buyer with a conventional loan approval better than one from an FHA buyer?

We have the answers here at ActiveRain and chances are great that if you can't find them now (which is hard to imagine!) you will find them tomorrow or the next day because our experts add hundreds of new posts every day.

Only ActiveRain gives you the chance to read news and advice from professionals who not only talk the talk, but walk the walk – the boots on the ground every day in the real estate industry.

Expert real estate advice, free for the reading – you gotta love that!

Recently I was perusing listings for a buyer client and cursing (silently to myself) the quality of the photos. There are literally rooms I could not identify.  So many of the photos were dark and out of focus, I could not figure out what I was even seeing. I shook my head at the quality and wond...

Is it possible to find a home that no one wants to buy? My opinion is no way. There is a buyer for every home and I have proven it through some of my Bank Owned Sales in the Manchester NH area.

Why do you want to sell and how fast do you need to move are two questions every Sacramento listing agent should ask. But asking those questions and digging deeper are things some Sacramento Realtors don't do. It's not because they don't want to probe; it's because often they're so excited after ...
