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.

I have lived in San Diego since 1977 and my wife is a native. Between us, we have owned over 20 properties including five in Del Mar. We moved to Santaluz in Rancho Bernardo 12 years ago and fell in love with the community.One of our friends has put their home on the market and I just had to share it. It has, in my opinion, one of the best views in the community, a perfect floorplan, and is by far the best value in Santaluz.I have attached links to the property from Heidi the Realtor. https://tours.previewfirst.com/pw/144060https://s.paragonrels.com/goto/FpOAN1kwRFZ

CAN YOU BE HONEST WITH YOUR CLOSET?Believe it or not, when it comes down to buying a home, one of the most important features is the closet! If you are lucky enough to buy a new construction, it may be easier to work with your builder or to choose a model with a closet that can make you happy. Honestly, many pre-existing homes do not have a closet as shown in my feature photo. Yours may be a simple, smaller closet and that's okay. However, if you're selling your own home and getting it ready to put on the market can you be honest with your closet? QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN SELLING YOUR HOME Do you have a love/hate relationship with your clothes? Does everything in your closet fit? Are you embarrassed by your closet's appearance? Does your closet have an offensive odor? Is there adequate lig...
