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.

As you probably know, having a real estate license doesn’t make someone a great agent. In fact, in any given market, a relatively small percentage of the total number of agents are responsible for a majority of the business. This means that when you’re evaluating agents, the odds of picking someo...

"I had lots of showings but no offers." I hear those words time and time again as I talk to sellers with recently expired listings. Most of the time they blame their agent for not generating an offer. One of the primary roles of a listing agent is to market the property and drive traffic into the...

It is tough to list a home when there are still tenants in the property, as they don't have any skin in the game.  I usually suggest to the landlord to offer a discount or free month of rent to allow for showings, and keep the home clean for showings.    Sometimes the tenant only allows certain t...

The pricing system isn't full proof - a good agent can usu...

This is the third time this month that a seller has told me they read a blog I wrote and decided to hire me. It makes me wonder how many other clients never say a thing. Many just say they found me online, and that could mean anything. They could have gone to one of those websites that lists top ...
