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!

 THERE'S STILL TIME TO SELL YOUR CHARLOTTE REGION HOME IN 2022Charlotte Region Homes Are Still Selling Quickly If you've been thinking about selling your home in 2022 THERE'S STILL TIME with 36 more days to go in 2022! Although median days on market have increased since earlier this year, with 50% of listed homes selling in 15 days and the average time on market at 32 days, you can sell your home and still have "days left over" in 2022. Home sale prices are also "holding their own." Average sale prices in November 2022 are approximately $102,000 higher than they were in the same month one year ago. They are also higher than they were in the first quarter of 2022. And while the list to sale price ratio is lower than earlier in 2022, home sellers are still seeing 99.1% of list price in fi...

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. Click Here to Continue Reading   Bottom Line Serious buyers should approach rising rates as a motivating factor to buy sooner, not a reason to wait. Waiting will cost you more in the long run. Work with a real estate professional to understand your budget and how you can be prepared to buy your home before rates climb higher.  My Home own search! How to get...

Congratulations to my Sellers on a quick cash transaction, and was nice of the buyers to give them a month to finish packing and move!    This wonderful couple first called in late 2004, sold a home, and they bought this home so many years ago.    I will miss them but wish them much happiness in Oklahoma.   Not often when your clients say --- sorry, but don't want you at the closing!   Last Friday I was diagnosed with COVID, and didn't blame them.    Her mom is over 80 and they didn't want to bring home anything.   But, first time in 26 years I didn't attend a closing! This property went into MLS on Friday (only to get the word out), but interior photos were up until late Friday afternoon.  After a flurry of showings on Saturday, got calls with interested buyers.    One was VERY excited...
