Hook a Higher Price For Your Home

When you receive an offer from a homebuyer, chances are it will be less than you expected. The housing turmoil of the last eight years has taught buyers to go in low, except in the most heated markets. It’s natural to get angry and indignant, but you won’t get a higher offer that way. You’ve got a fish on the hook, and jerking the rod won’t land it — you’ve got to reel it in. Like a good fisherman, you want to get the fish to the boat alive before you decide whether to throw it back. Before you fire back a reply, try to understand why the offer is so low. Sometimes the buyer will tell their agent and their agent will tell your agent. First look at the comparables they’re using — are they relevant? Is the condition of your home better or worse than other similar homes? Click here for the rest of the story

Should you list your home during the holidays?

With the holidays approaching, sellers often wonder if they should keep their properties on the market or take them off. Or if they haven’t listed their homes yet, should they wait until after the first of the year? Maybe hold off until spring?   Conventional wisdom used to be that you shouldn’t even try to sell your home during the busy holiday season. Potential home buyers were too preoccupied with attending parties, cooking meals, buying presents or planning vacations. With all that going on, there just wasn’t time to ride around with a real estate agent, looking at properties.   http://www.today.com/money/should-you-list-your-home-during-holidays-2D11660290
