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.

New numbers from S&P Case-Shiller show home prices slow down, though prices remain 10.6 percent higher than they were last year at the same time. What does this mean to you as a home seller and how does it affect the many homebuyers out looking at purchasing a new home?  If you’re a home seller and still in the frame of mind that your home will receive multiple offers, no contingencies and above asking price by thousands of dollars you may be in for a bit of a surprise. Although home prices remain at record highs there are signs of a cooling sellers’ market as home prices slow to increase in the near future. On the other hand if your a homebuyer that was struggling to purchase the perfect home this summer with over-bidding, highest and best offers and plan out of reach prices, this migh...

What Homeowners Want To Know About Selling in Todays MarketIf you're thinking about selling your house, you're likely hearing about the cooling housing market and wondering what that means for you. While it’s not the peak intensity we saw during the pandemic, were still in a sellers market. That means you haven't missed your window.

If you want to net the most money possible for your property in today’s market, you’ll need an effective game plan and a skilled realtor like Kathy Hyatt with RE/MAX to implement it.Fortunately, Kathy Hyatt has developed a listing strategy that combines her proven approach to preparation, pricing, and promotion—all designed to help you get top dollar for your home.
