I too am familiar with the Halethorpe/Arbutus area and would love to discuss the opportunity of working with you to develop a marketing plan that would work best to get your home sold for the most money and the least amount of time. As you are aware, Realtors earn their income by getting the job done, not by having it sit on the market.
There are fees involved, such as commission, taxes, recordation fees, etc..when you sell a home. When you move out of state, there "might" be additional taxes to pay, but it depends on your situation. Each situation can vary from another, so without sitting down with you and getting more details it is hard to advise you on that based on the information given here. Commissions for Realtors are always negotiable, but you want to be sure you are getting the best for what you are paying.
We are seeing many buyers right now and homes are selling if they are marketed correctly and priced right.
Please contact me and we can set up a time to go over all of this together. I will also give you a Competitive Market Report so you will be able to have information to base decisions on for the sale of your home.
I look forward to speaking with you more and hopefully working together to get your home SOLD!
