You shouldn't itemize.. Life is to short to spend your time nit picking things you can not control... Most all of the closing cost goes to the buyers side anyways.. that's why their are 'seller paid contributions' towards closing cost. ... more

If you are planning on selling your home soon, I don't know whether the investment in hardwood would be worth it. You may recoup some cost, your house would probably appeal to more buyers but I doubt you would get a 100% return on investment if you are just going to turn it around and sell it.

Your agent should be contacting every agent that walked through your door and inform them of the price reduction - and encourage offers and bids from their buyer clients.

Good luck.

Hi Tracey,

Every agent that responds is going to tell you that the best place to list your home is with them. The best place to list your home is where it will get the most exposure in the shortest amount of time. I can have your home on over 40 nationally recognized web sites in less than a week, Trulia being one of them. If you would like to get together to see the entire marketing plan in writing just let me know. My contact info is available on my profile within Trulia or via my web site listed in the web reference below. ... more

Sales information updated in the MLS service and later in the tax records - longer in Fulton county than some others.
