Jonathan,
The key to a quick sale while still getting a good price is 3 things; Presentation, Marketing & Pricing.
If your house looks nice, has curb appeal and is well presented inside you will draw interest. Clean, declutter, fix anything that says "work" for the buyer.
Marketing is getting your home in front of the most eyes possible. A great agent knows how to do this and will use all means possible. The local MLS, Trulia and dozens of other websites as well as bright clear pictures with warm and inviting descriptions.
Finally, if you over price your home all the other work will be for nothing. Homes that are priced to attract offers get offers. Many in my market are receiving multiple offers right now. The other surprise here is that by pricing well, you will net more. Over priced homes sit and become "aged inventory" are overlooked by agents and buyers both.
Find a great local agent who understands this and will help you accomplish your goal. Best of luck

Yes... If you can't fix it - feature it.
If you have one, or can buy or rent one, put a pop-up tent near the entrance and add extra door mats where people can wipe their feet or leave their shoes. ... more

Hi Evansmom98,
That doesn't sound like a good situation to be in. I highly recommend you ask your realtor in writing (by email or mail or fax) for a few things. One: You need a copy of your listing agreement, your purchase agreement that is signed by all parties & the title companies information of where your escrow is opened.

Even though you are having problems with your realtor, the title officer should be able to tell you some very basic answers. Ask the title officer if the buyers deposit is sitting there. Also ask the title officer when it looks like this escrow will close.

You need to look at your listing agreement & see how long your contract is with that agent. I would ask the agent if they are willing to release you from the contract to sell your house with them.

Maybe your current realtor can make an agreement with you, to release your from your contract if this buyer doesn't go thru.

I might try going to that realtor's broker/boss to see if they can mediate this situation & get them to release your from being obligated to use them.

Coming to an agreement will be better & faster in the long run. Hope you get things worked out soon.

Hi Shawn,

Typically you would ask a real estate agent who has access to your local MLS.

They would be able to tell you the days on market (DOM) as well as any other information about the house you would want to know. Also, most MLS's have an "agent only" remarks section where there is some useful information also.

The Medford Team answered:
You can always sell your home any time you want – however, there are implications to selling so soon after purchasing:

(1) You will need to pay the standard fees for selling your home, including Realtor fees and closing costs. It is unlikely that your home has appreciated in value enough to cover these costs, so you may end up losing money.

(2) If your home has appreciated enough that, after paying your fees, you manage to MAKE money, then that profit will be classified as income and subject to the short term tax rate. You’ll need to discuss this with your CPA for the tax implications.

The only other problem is the inconvenience of listing, selling, finding a suitable replacement home and moving … again.

No. Your closing costs should not be any different than with a conventional sale. If you are working with a Realtor ask them to provide you with a seller's net sheet. This should provide a good estimate of your costs. ... more

MLS is the Multiple Listing Service, it is what realtors ente rtheir listing into ofr other realtors to see and get the information to their buyers. You can go to www.realtor.com where realtors MLS iinformation is posted in their database. Some MLS allow the addresses to be listed and some do not, those who dont you have to email the listing agents. The main difference is all realtor belong to MLs where only some realtors belong to Trulia. Your best bet is to have a buyer agent who can scan the mls and get you up to date info on new listings and price changes as they occur. Good luck with your search. ... more

Susan Wesely answered:
The very best site is the local MLS. You will have to use an agent to list your property. When interviewing you should ask them what other sites they use, and how they get the information to those sites. For example, Keller Williams agents also use a KW site which then automatically distributes the listing to several others, including Trulia and Zillow. Best of luck! ... more
