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 am sure you are familiar with the phrase "Do you want fries with that?" Well, there's a new phrase in real estate marketing that I'm guessing you aren't familiar with....   "Do you want a bride with that?"   Sellers often throw a little something extra in with the house to entice buyers, but t...

The lawyer is the one who closes on the deal, no?” I started to laugh. “There’s a whole process that goes on to get you ...

The most expensive home that sold in Arizona last week was a unique property in the sense that it's not your traditional luxury home. This house was built in 1967 and by all accounts needs some pretty major updates to bring it in to the modern age. Selling this home for $3.3 million dollars might...
