sell: Why Can't I Be Home For Showings? - 07/28/15 03:28 AM
When the phone call comes that an agent wants to show your house, you groan. You're tired, perhaps, or hungry. Your son has homework to do and you need to cook dinner. It's so terribly inconvenient.
There are lots of reasons your agent has suggested you not be home while prospective buyers are visiting.
First, the acts of buying and selling a home are so very personal and so filled with emotion that it's best if a buyer and seller not meet. For example, imagine if the buyer criticizes the way you decorated your house or complains that the rooms are too small. … (38 comments)

sell: We can always lower the price later! - 07/18/14 06:16 AM
Some homeowners are of the (mistaken) belief that they should price their home a tad above what it's worth - say, $340k for a home worth $300k - so that there's "room for negotiation." 
WRONG!
Pricing your home above its value actually decreases its value, and here's why:
Timing is everything. The greatest potential for buyer traffic is the first 30 days. This is an actual graph for the number of showings that a listing of ours recently had in its time on the market.  Internet activity follows an identical pattern. The only time the number of showings will actually increase is … (4 comments)
