Great question. Many others have explained that it depends on your level of motiviation, i.e. how quickly do you need to sell and therefore how aggressively you price your house. I will just tell you the local statistics as of last month which was October 2015.

In October 2015 the Average Days on Market for Rochester residential homes was 51 days, but the Median Days on Market was just 21 days. I believe the median of 21 days is a much better indicator than the average. It lets us say statistically that 50% of Rochester houses are selling in the first 21 days they're listed.

You can find all this information and more on my website for home sellers,

Hello Theresa Molina,
Good afternoon.
Are you still in the market to sell your home? If so, I would love to see if we can help you out. Do you have a realtor yet? If not we have preferred ones we can get you in contact with. I would like to see if I can help you out with a new home mortgage. I will try and make this a very easy process. Please let me know how to help out.
Thanks much.

Hi Lauren:

Ask your Agent to list on Trulia.
One has to be licensed.

Good luck

I would leave the safety measures 'as is'. Reason being, if you remove baby gates, for example, you are either going to have to patch the holes or explain them, and neither option sounds like a good one to me. Not to mention all would have to be put right back up once the open was over.

Safety equipment can also help you as well with couples that currently have a baby on the way or toddler. The couple doesn't have to wonder if the house can be 'baby-proofed', they already know it can be, not to mention, the gates (etc.) could potentially be worked into the deal and save the new owners the hassle and expense.

Just my two cents!

I say, if you have the time, yes. We weren't even planning to move into a different home but went to an open house, just for something to do on a rainy day... get decorating ideas. We fell in love with the house, put an offer in and quickly sold ours. We have never regretted what happened or how fast it happened. ... more

It is the buyer's lender who is responsible for checking for this.

While you cannot always have 2 FHA loans at one time, there are situations where you can.
The buyer likely didn't qualify for the exception.

I would leave the table in the house, especially if you are planning on leaving it with the house. It can be a great selling point. (Some of those male buyers would love to have that already there.....)
If you aren't planning on leaving it, I would get it out before listing the home. A buyer may expect that to be part of the home, or ask for it in the offer. Good luck!

Hi Cara,
There are different philosophies on pricing, especially in this Market !
Some say be the lowest price against your competion, but I relate Home pricing to another "Big Ticket" purchase such as a car....................
No matter how low you reduce the price on the Sticker, are you as a Buyer going to pay full sticker price, especially in such a strong Buyers Market ?
Best regards,
