If you are considering selling your home, one of the first actions you need to take is engaging a real estate agent.
But, there is a lot more than signing a contract with your kids' soccer coach's wife or the friend of a friend. These agents may be the best to get your home sold, but are you sure? You should enter into a seller's contract with both enthusiasm and confidence!
Your home may be your most valuable physical financial asset; don't trust the process of selling your home to without thoroughly discussing the process and reviewing your options. Hiring a real estate agent is a huge decision. You should search for real estate professionals, choose 3-5 of those, and then interview each to find the best fit for your real estate transaction expectations.
This is your opportunity to be the "boss," so create an agent interview strategy and execute it thoughtfully. Your objective is to hire the right person for the job, and that job is selling your home at the best possi ...

What if your real estate agent told you that any home buyer could become a cash buyer?
Sounds too good to be true, right?
Real estate brokers run across situations every day where a buyer doesn't have as much power with a deal that is being financed because of offer contingencies, or they are in competition with multiple offers - a situation that comes up quite often - on the property of their dreams.
If the buyer is a cash buyer, that helps get the job done
KBT Realty is promoting a new tool that makes it possible for pre-approved buyers to become cash buyers. This tool works in a wide variety of real estate buying and selling scenarios.

Or they could have a house in Wilmington that they need to sell in order to be able to buy a different house in the area. That's one situation: a buyer has found a house they want to buy, but they c ...

Often, sellers decide to postpone listing their house until after the holidays. People who have their house listed for sale prior to the holidays often take it off the market for a "break."
This house-selling strategy might not work your best advantage. Listing your house for sale during the holidays make actually be the best time to sell your property.
Wouldn't you love to have your house keys appear in an excited buyer's Christmas stocking?
Ten Reasons to List Your House For Sale During the Holidays
10. Use the end of the year to your advantage. Some people must purchase real estate before the calendar year end for tax reasons.
9. Buyers may have more time to house hunt during the holidays, and potential buyers may be vacationing or visiting family in their desired location during the holidays, which means they are not house hunting from afar.
8. The number of listings often increases in January, so the competition for buyers will tighten up. Mor ...
