The spring season. The promise of new things. What will happen in spring is 500 additional homes will be placed on the market at the same time with the peak being the last week of May. These will be new listings. Fresh listings. They will generate new excitement. The may create the opposite effect on your home than you expect. ---------------At the time you and your REALTOR were sitting at the dining room table discussing selling strategies, you were presented with several option and the logic behind them. Your response to these suggestions revealed if you are or are not agile in the process of selling your home. During that discussion, it was shared with you that many buyers LOOK for an indication of willingness from the home seller.
