selling your home? how's the traffic?

housebuilder14February 9, 2014

we will put our house on the market after president's week. i'm very nervous - lots of inventory and a lot of new construction to compete with. we are already considerably slashing the price from what we purchased the house for in 2005 (way to time the market!). in CT - hopefully market coming back a little. anyone want to share their recent stories? obviously every house is different but i need some encouragement...

There are so many variables. We waited for two years (unfortunately) and when we least expected, it sold in two days. The things we thought were important, ended up being the least. We have a friend who is a realtor and he says anyone can sell their home if it's priced right. After two years we realized how right he was because I think everyone feels they should get more out of their home than it's probably worth. Get a trusty realtor and follow his advice. Good luck!!
