Steps to Selling a Home

Step 1  Step 2  Step 3  Step 4 

Step 1:
Do some research. Don't rely solely on the national headlines -- even in the coldest of national markets, for example, houses in some neighborhoods or cities continue to hold their value and even attract multiple bids. Chatting with your neighbors can teach you a fair amount about the heat of the local market. Also, read your local newspaper's real estate section and talk to real estate agents you meet at open houses.
