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!

The Buyers Do Not Want Your "Stuff"   When you sell your home, the buyers most often want.... the Home!  In some cases, the home may be offered furnished and/or equipped.  That is not the "stuff" I speak of.  I speak of the stuff that you are just too tired to haul off, and believe me.... I know ...

Alrighty then.  The house has taken you quite awhile to get it ready to put on the market.  You have been stressing about how it looks and have been going overboard trying to make it absolutely perfect. This need to please has delayed the listing from going live on the MRIS. The number of homes t...

If the real estate agent has done a creditable CPM, finding what sold in the neighborhood and what is on the market, this s...

Hella tells a good story.  I have told many a seller that their over-priced property is guaranteed to sell...
