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.

Holiday Decorating When You’re Selling Your Home Thanksgiving was last week, so the holidays are right around the corner. Many have already decorated their Christmas tree and hung their outdoor lights. This is one of my favorite times of the year; nothing makes it more festive than holiday decorations.  Many sellers ask if they can still decorate their house for the holidays…and the simple answer is YES.   Just remember the basic principles of styling your home for sale… Let the buyers SEE your space Allow the buyers to feel and see themselves living in the house.  Tips for Decorating Your Home for the Holidays When Selling Your House -Keep It Simple  You don’t want to distract your buyers with so many festive decorations that they can’t see the features of your home. If your tradition ...

 SHOULD YOU SELL YOUR GREATER CHARLOTTE HOME DURING THE HOLIDAYS? Should you wait for spring to list your home for sale? Should you take your home off the market during the holidays if you're already listed for sale?Tomorrow is December 1st... I guess you could say the holiday season is officially on! One question I always get at this time of year is "should we sell our home during the holidays or should we wait for the spring season?" My answer is always an unequivocal YES, you should sell your home during the holidays. The holiday season can be a great time to sell your home. TOP REASONS TO SELL YOUR CHARLOTTE AREA HOME DURING THE HOLIDAYSThe "conventional wisdom" that says the holidays are not a good time to sell a home isn't all that wise and should be put to rest once and for all! ...

HOW MUCH HAS YOUR GREATER CHARLOTTE HOME'S VALUE INCREASED IN 2022? Throughout much of 2022 the Greater Charlotte Region continued to suffer from a persistent lack of inventory. The lack of inventory was further exacerbated by the region's continued population growth at a pace greater than the national average, baby boomers who continue to live in their homes, and less new construction inventory.  Demand for homes outweighing the supply of homes has been the story of the Charlotte region's housing market in 2020, 2021, and into 2022 resulting in price appreciation that is leading many areas of the nation in annual gains. The Charlotte region continues to rank high on the hottest housing market lists. And that also means that Charlotte region homeowners have more equity in their homes th...

Each year, homeowners planning to make a move are faced with a decision: sell their house during the holidays or wait. And others who have already listed their homes may think about removing their listings and waiting until the new year to  go back on the market.The truth is many buyers want to purchase a home for the holidays, and your house might be just what they’re looking for. Here are five great reasons you shouldn’t wait to sell your house.1. While the supply of homes for sale has increased this year, there still aren’t enough homes on the market to keep up with buyer demand. As Nadia Evangelou, Senior Economist & Director of Forecasting at the National Association of Realtors (NAR), explains:“There’s still this gap between demand and supply because we were underbuilding for many...

This is an excellent post with great information. Thanks for sharing it.Have a super fantastic week!Joe Jackson, Realtor-KWCP To sum it all up, your house should still sell today and move quickly if you’re realistic about today’s market. As a press release from Zillow puts it: “. . . sellers need to do things right to attract the attention of these buyers — pricing their home competitively and making their listing attractive to online home shoppers.” For expert advice on how to sell your house in a shifting market, lean on a local real estate professional.

Do You Have Questions About Selling Your SANTA FE NM Home In Winter?Yes, winter is coming to Santa Fe New Mexico and there is currently a market shift happening this season. Both things do make you wonder it it makes sense to sell your house. Here are three of the top questions you may be asking – and some facts that helps answer them – so you can make a more informed decision. 1. Should I Wait To Sell? Even though the supply of homes for sale has increased in 2022, inventory is still low overall. That means it’s still a sellers’ market. The graph below helps put the inventory growth into perspective. Using data from the National Association of Realtors (NAR), it shows just how far off we are from flipping to a buyers’ market: While buyers have regained some negotiation power as invento...
