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!

I routinely sell houses for more that I think they are worth. If you have 2 buyers, or 5 buyers, the chances are that price won't be a function of value but of demand. Of course, the end buyer has to be cash, because you don't want to be subject to an appraisal. So, I get an offer from a Realtor ...

One of my agents came into the office today to say a seller had decided to "wait for spring" "green grass" to list. The agent wanted to know my thoughts on it. So I thought I'd share them with any other Lake Sinclair seller who is thinking about waiting another 4 to 6 weeks before listing.   We h...

The market in Sacramento is pretty much crazy right now with low inventory and high demand. If you're a listing agent with a desirable listing in an attractive location, you can milk that listing for every dime it can produce and a buyer will pay it.
