There is no such thing as "in general". It depends on the address and the size of the house.
Exact location. Get your own Realtor if you really want to know the market value.

Hello Marci,

First, your credit score is better than you may imagine. Generally, a minimum 620 credit score is necessary to buy a home. Although there are some additional factors, you're already in a better position.

Now, to determine your options on selling, I would need to valuate your home and compare it to activity in your immediate area. If you'd like, I can prepare a discreet and FREE home valuation for you. Simply go to and input your property information.

What specific problems are you having with the HVAC and electrical system? Also, have you had the roof looked at to determine if a patch will resolve the issue or if the roof needs to be replaced? Every home has a buyer, even homes that are in need of repair. These type of issues can always be negotiated with a buyer.

Is renting an option or selling with owner-financing? Do you have money saved for a down payment?

There is much to discuss. Feel free to connect with me.

It is harder to get a loan these days than it was in the past. A buyer should be pre-approved by a lender prior to beginning their home search. A buyer will a good credit score and good records will be able to obtain a loan typically within 30-45 days. ... more

Hello Gcbauder,

A typical answer to your question would be that the winter months are not the best time to list your home. I have never put much faith in that kind of thinking. Some of my busiest times have been in winter, this year included. Being that we only have a week left in this year, it wouldn't effect you much if you listed your home now or in another week. Sales have held steady in the last couple of months really showing no sign of slowing down. I recently sold a home in your area and I find the neighborhood to be desirable to a good number of buyers on the hunt. In this market, if you want to sell your home, there's no better time than now. If you would like more info, feel free to contact me through the holiday. I can help you expedite the process.

Joshua Christensen answered:
Trying to sell a house in Today's market, it is critical to understand that the property is hottest in the first 60 days and becomes "stale" if it sits too long. Pricing and Presentation are the two biggest things as a seller that are in your control. Your agent is responsible for Exposure of your property. A home competitively priced that is the best in Presentation will sell in a decent time frame even in today's market. Also, remember that seasonally, we're headed into the most challenging time of year for selling. Price & Presentation become even more critical at this point in the season. Best wishes. Let me know if I can help any further. ... more

You can call or email your agent. I recommend talking with them, letting them know your reasons, etc. Also, if you have anything in writing from them as your Agent, you should also put it in writing of your termination. There is a form for this that your current agent will have access too.

If you are then looking for another company and agent to work with, I'd be glad to meet you and let you know how I work, and what your expectations may be of me and vice versa.

I'd be glad to help. Feel free to call, text or email me anytime.

Nathan Wolf answered:
Clean it. Keep it clean.

This is THE MOST EFFECTIVE way to increase the value of your home.

Buyers will stop focusing on things that catch their attention around your house, and instead focus on the house. Buyers will remember a house that is exceptionally clean and well kept and will associate that the rest of the house-- everything they dont see-- is also in good working order. They will assume that the seller has kept the house in excellent condition.

This also goes to the outside. Clean your yard. Clean your gutters. Clean your windows. A well kept house from the exterior gives a good impression to what to expect on the interior. People often slow down in front of my home and honk to say "I Love your House...." -- what they mean is they love that I keep a nice garden and yard and it has "curb appeal" -- because they have never been in my house. But if they did, they would find it is just as tidy. Everything in its place means that it has room and space for a new buyer -- should I ever decide to move.

Give me a "BEST ANSWER" or "THUMBS UP" if this answered your question. Thanks!
If you have more questions: post them, email them, or call me 704-858-2345

Hi Rose,

Yes, I've had experience with the FNMA help desk. They speak very nicely and say they'll help, again and again, and then nothing gets done. My advice would be for you to deal with the proper channels at the bank. It's easier and faster. Feel free to call me anytime with questions.

In my opinion, your home will not be worth more any time in the next year than today. I agree that heritage east is not directly comparable. Pricing is the most critical issue, so don't be short changed on the effort to price it right. I can certainly help, including going to see some comps. If you want to wait until next year, I would have it on the market by May 1st to not completely miss the spring buyers. Please see my trulia bio and blog article entitled ... more

I don't think it makes much of a difference. If the carpet is new or in great condition I don't think most people mind removing their shoes. I have been in houses where this was requested and the carpet was very dirty. This is a "turn off" for most people. ... more
