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!

Let's see a show of hands. How many real estate agents listed short sales prior to 2012? And how many of those short sale listings sold and closed within 6 months? OK, now you can peel yourselves up off the floor and stop laughing. Hey, I wasn't the one who sold buyers hope. Nope, that was the Ca...

Excellent advice for sellers and their Realtors:    When you take a new listing, that Seller is relying on you to market their property properly and accurately.     Taking photos with your cell phone is not doing the property justice, some are so dark you cannot even tell what room it is.    Inve...

Why Isn’t My House Getting any Showings?As a home seller, you hope to get your house listed and receive an offer, then a contract within days thereafter. Does that happen often? You bet it does!

I have heard of this happening - but never really understood how one could "game" or "manipulate" the MLS. Until today. I just came across a perfect example. It's just the slightest of things. Just an innocuous "space". That was introduced into the street name - adding a space where no space shou...
