You can have listings on one and not the other. It all comes down to what sites you choose to have your listings syndicated on.

I was actually wondering something similar. I want to put my house up for sale, but I'm thinking of having a commercial real estate company come in and help. What do you think?

2009 was a much slower year than 2014 but should anyone have the same problem in "this" fast-paced sellers' market:

Three main things influence the sale of a home: 1) Price 2) Location 3) Aesthetic Quality. Price can always overcome the other two.

Does the home have professional photography? (This can make a huge difference in the way the home is portrayed to the general public). Is your agent sending you online activity and analytics reports so that you know where your online activity is coming from and what to focus on generating more of (so that you can convert those to "in-person" showings?).

Perhaps try a small price-decrease to show the public you're willing to negotiate coupled with an open house.

You should be able to get contact info for the HOA from your Realtor or the listing agent. The sellers will be required to provide you with the Condo Resale Certificate prior to the sale, but you won't be able to get that until you have an accepted offer and executed contract. ... more

Roxanne DeBerry answered:
This is a question that I get asked all the time. When is the best time to sell a home? My answer is; when you are really wanting to get it sold! The time of the year may or may not benefit you because of certain circumstances. Yes, the 2nd and 3rd quarters in our MLS area is where more homes sell than any other time traditionally. However, factors like interest rates, the economy may factor into the buying decision by that time as well. I know I don't have a crystal ball to be able to give you a good answer on whether to wait till next spring, but I feel, that if you have the right agent, the right marketing and the right price then it should sell. I listed a home a week ago in another area and I received an offer right away. I listed another home 4 months ago in another area and just received an offer. So it really depends on the area and the factors surrounding the home as I discussed earlier.

Speak with your agent and make sure you see where they are advertising your home. If it is listed on the MLS then it should be on Do you have enough pictures showing the inside of the home as well as the surrounding area? Is there advertising that highlights things like it is close to shopping , restaurants, or night life. Would this home be attractive to an investor? Any or all of these things should be indicated in your marketing. You might want to ask your realtor to put your listing on Facebook or on Craigslist if you haven't done so already. There are many things you can do to get exposure for your home and it will sell if it is priced right. I feel fairly certain about that. I hope this gives you some food for thought. Remember take time to discuss your concerns with your agent and see if you can work out a more effective plan to get your home sold.

Thank you for allowing the realtor community to be of assistance.
