Hi Bonnie,

Great question! The answer is: we are currently in a buyer's market, as you know, so the key to having your house get alot of showings and in turn, get an offer or offers, is to do a few things well: 1) hire a REALTOR who will get you the most exposure on the internet (most buyers- over 90% find the home they buy on the internet first), as well as a REALTOR who knows your market and will show you comparable duplexes to yours so that you can arrive at a realistic list price and you 2) price it to today's market's comparable sales. and 3) take a look at your exterior and spruce it up, freshen it up (flowers, etc.) to get great curb appeal, and 4) look at each room and get rid of clutter and extra furniture... do your best to make it look like a model home. I actually help my clients "stage" their homes b/c it will help their place sell more quickly and for more money than those similar properties that are overcrowded and cluttered. It would be my pleasure to come see your place and provide you with comparables and a suggested list price when you are ready.

Best of luck to you as you decide whether to list and sell your house. I know this is a big decision and I wish you well!

Maurertown is one of the smallest Townships in the Shenandoah County but is very personal. As far as the market it depends which area in Maurertown you are refering to. The newer developments have homes that have been on the market for awhile due to having to drive out of maurertown to Woodstock/Strasburg to shop for groceries, gas, etc. Other than a Pizza Place that is the only eatery in town also. Prices in Toms Brook and Maurertown are normally lower due to the convience of amentities. Thank You for Inquiring. Jr ... more

Woodstock and Edinburg are both nice areas. You will have plenty of choices but knowing a bit more about what you are looking for will help an agent find the best place for you.
