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.

With the U.S. economy on everyone’s minds right now, questions about the country’s financial outlook continue to come up daily. The one that seems to keep rising to the top is: when will the economy begin to recover? While no one knows exactly how a rebound will play out, expert economists around the country are becoming more aligned on when the recovery will begin. According to the latest Wall Street Journal Economic Forecasting Survey, which polls more than 60 economists on a monthly basis, 85.3% believe a recovery will begin in the second half of 2020 (see graph below):There seems to be a growing consensus among these experts that the second half of this year will be the start of a turnaround in this country.

The housing market has changed. It is no longer difficult to sell a house in November.  Right now homes are selling quickly in Silver Spring, Takoma Park and surrounding areas . Over the weekend there were multiple offers on homes that had just been listed.  Last week one of our listings sold the first weekend it was on the market. Houses that are overpriced still linger on the market for a few weeks. Buyers should be brave and offer the sellers less than the asking price before the price is reduced and there are multiple offers. Right now the inventory of homes on the market in Montgomery County is low. There is a shortage of homes for sale. Affordable new construction would help but there isn’t any. If you have a home you want to sell you can sell it during the winter and even during...

10 Staging Tips To Get Your Home Soldby Helene Kelbaugh of Keller Williams Legacy Metropolitan Ready to sell your Baltimore house? Here is a few staging tips to get your home prepared for the market. When listing a home that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions, you want to make sure it's presented in the best light. You wouldn't buy a $50,000 dollar car if it was filled from top to bottom in someone's personal content and trash. This is the same mindset you need to carry into selling your home that will be worth well over a $100,000. 1. SAY BYE TO CLUTTERThe best thing you can do for your home for sale is to get rid of all of your clutter! Make a rule for your home that for every new piece that comes in, one must go. One of the biggest factors to a cluttered home is t...

The property is now Pending. The Sellers and I are in the home stretch moving towards closing. Mesquite is a suburb east of Dallas, home to Mesquite Champion Rodeo Shows.      Prior to going under contract on March 8, I walked to the pond four doors down from 1102 Wildflower. There, on a bright and sunny morning I captured the rainbow of the water feature inside the natural pond. I'm sure it will brighten the new owners day as it has my Sellers over the years.      Also within a short walking distance from 1102 Wildflower is Shaw Park, North Mesquite Creek Preserves, and the elementary school.

6 REASONS YOUR HOME WON'T SELL BY HELENE KELBAUGH, REALTOR, INTERNET MARKETING SPECIALIST Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Legacy Metropolitan - Baltimore Are you ready to sell your home and want it to have a great first impression on the market? Or maybe your home has been listed for a few weeks or months, and you can't figure out why it won't sell, and you know your agent is working hard to market it. We've listed below the top 6 reasons your home may not make a good impression and end up stagnant on the market.   1. IT'S OVERPRICED To be clear, an overpriced home is the #1 reason a home won't sell. We often times want our homes to be worth a lot more than we may see based on the data, but if you put your home on the market for the number you wish it will bring instead of the p...

Dear Carol,  I look forward to my house hunting trip this upcoming weekend.  I'll be in town for three full days but much of my time will be spent meeting with directors of the new division I will begin working for next month.  Therefore, I have limited time to view property ....I have selected these 10 listings as my top choices for my price range......Sellers - Do you understand the mindset of a buyer who is moving to your area due to a corporate relocation?  Maybe you are also selling your own home to relocate to a new town for a new job.  All the more reason why you should understand the process of selling your current home.Your house needs to be perceived as one of the top 10 appealing choices of homes available in your price range by buyers (and their agents) who are shopping onli...
