Intro To Selling

Learning About Your Home

Throughout the selling process, potential buyers will ask you questions about your home. You’ll know the answers to some questions, but maybe not others. Most of this information is actually public. You can find it on your municipal government’s website and by looking your home up on Zillow, which pulls a lot of your publicly available home information. You can also find it on the Contract and Settlement Statement you used to purchase the home. And if you have any questions, just ask our experts!

When Should I Sell?

In general, the best times of the year to sell are when the weather in your area is nicest. For areas with large seasonal variation, spring is usually the most popular time for buyers and sellers, followed by fall.

How Long Does It Take to Sell a Home?

The unsatisfying answer is that it depends. While national averages tend to be around 45 days, homes priced reasonably in strong markets can sell in as little as two weeks. Homes priced too high in slower markets can take many months. Check out Zillow and other websites to get a sense for how quickly homes are selling in your market.
