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.

The question of In 2020 Do I Invest in new property or an old property? Is the question on every new and experienced property investor.So far this year of 2020 has definitely proven to be one we all could say ‘we didn’t expect. We have all be affected in different ways as this health crisis continues to play out and the economic challenge it inevitably leaves in its wake.We have witnessed financial and equity markets rise and fall and rise again, currency markets up and down and talks of property prices dipping, but as yet, we are only seeing slowed clearance rates across the board. The question is, if you are building an investment portfolio, especially one that includes property, ‘where to from here?’.In this current climate and market, what should I buy, a new property or an old prop...

While international travels might be out of the picture for some time now, there are some places back home that you can visit by taking full precautions and maintaining of self-distancing with others and also following the “NAMASTE ATTITUDE” to wish and to greet someone without coming near to anyone.

Recently I listed a beautiful home for sale at 40 Arroyo View Circle in Belmont, CaliforniaAfter being shown only 1 afternoon, an offer was received. By the next day negotiations were complete and there was a pending sale. The 30-day escrow period proceeded smoothly, and the sale was finalized yesterday.The buyers are ecstatic, and the sellers are ready to take the next step -- finding their replacement home and saying good-bye to the temporary rental. Within an hour of getting confirmation that the sale had recorded, I got the message from my sellers, "let's keep the momentum up."Buying a home in Silicon Valley is not an easy task, especially in certain price ranges in towns like Belmont or San Carlos. We are now investigating 3 potential properties. Disclosure packets have been downlo...

This is for a number of reasons. First up, there are just so many of them, hundreds of them in fact.With such a huge games selection, comes a huge variation. With such a huge variation of games, comes a huge amount of opinion. The io gaming community is now just so big, that you can’t escape them……. or their views!Another reason is because they are just so damn good.

In today’s fast-paced world where answers are just a Google search away, there are some who may question the benefits of hiring a real estate professional when selling a house. The reality is, the addition of more information can lead to more confusion. A real estate agent can be your essential guide, but truth be told, not all agents are created equal. Finding the right agent for you and your family should be your top priority when you’re ready to sell your house. The right agent is the person who can truly walk you through the whole process, look out for your best interest, and seamlessly lead you through all the steps along the way. In today’s complex market, the way we execute real estate transactions is changing constantly, especially as more elements can be done virtually. Making ...

 I HIT THE JACKPOT. I was referred to this seller to list and sell an Estate Sale. They said if I was willing to list the home, I could keep everything in it. It would be mine to bring home and get rid of as i saw fit. What a great gift some may think. As I walked around the home there it was, my NEW BOAT.   Looking across the green in-ground pool I wondered how much FLEX TAPE I would need to get this boat sea worthy again. The commercials on TV said it can make anything waterproof again right. I have used Flex tape on leaking hoses, PVC and even on a dripping gutter spout. But a boat? The tv says yes.     When I was done dreaming of sailing the ocean in this 90 degree heat wave, I came back to reality and my job of selling this home. The home may need as much work as this boat. Howeve...
