If you are selling a property you need to do work hard these days to get the highest price for your home. It needs to be in great condition and clean and odor free. Yes.. things we don't always like to talk about, but when you put your home on the market you have only one change to make a first impression. That involves so many things. Curb appeal is where it starts. The moment the potential buyers drive up to your home you need to impress as you are competing with every other home out there. If you are serious about selling your home, two things need to happen to get you started. 1. Speak with a full time real estate agent. Knowing the Local market is so important. 2. Pricing the home properly from the beginning is the second but probably the most important part of the transaction. A home on the market too long at a high price gets nothing for your efforts. Price it right to sell the home the fastest.
The second part of your info is that you are looking to purchase if i am correct. If this is true you should understand that yes the market is down for price of those that are listing, but for buyers the market is also at a low. With mortgage rates down buying is at a great time.
