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!

2 razones por las que no veremos una avalancha de ejecuciones hipotecarias este otoño La crisis de la salud a la que nos enfrentamos como país ha llevado a que los negocios de todo el país tengan que reducir o interrumpirlo su servicio por completo. Esta pausa en la economía ha impactado de gran manera a la fuerza laboral y como resultado, muchas personas fueron despedidas o suspendidas. Naturalmente, eso haría que muchos crean que podríamos ver una avalancha de ejecuciones hipotecarias como la que vimos en 2008. Sin embargo, el mercado actual es muy diferente al de 2008.   La preocupación de más ejecuciones hipotecarias basada en aquellos que están desempleados es una que necesitamos entender plenamente.
