Question by Jennifer M: What is the best method to get your house sold?
Like many people in today’s housing market, my husband and I find ourselves with two houses. The payments for both of them are getting to be oppressive. We were hoping that we would have our house sold before this time. We already purchased a second home and really would like to get our first home sold without taking too much of a beating on it.
It is a fairly large modern-styled home (approx. 5,000 sq.ft) that is sided in cedar.
We have a real-estate agent, but have not had much success in that vein. My husband suggested giving the realtors a larger percentage to encourage them to sell it.
We are almost at the end of our rope and winter is on its way…two heating bills, two gas bills, two driveways to shovel, etc. Help!!

If your agent is not having open houses they should be, talk to them about it. It also doesn’t hurt to tell everyone you know or run into that you have a house for sale. You never know when someone will know someone in the market for a home.
Have you home professionally staged. Staged homes sell faster and for more money than homes that have not been staged. your realtor should recommend someone for this.
