Local Selling Tips

1. Congratulations: You’ve already taken the first step

The REALTORS at CENTURY 21 Advantage Gold are experienced, understand the near-constant fluctuations of the real estate market and will be able to position you and your home in the best way possible. Ask yourself WHY. Much like with buying a home, understanding the whys of the sale are important. Why now? Are you moving for work? Have your finances changed for better or for worse? Are you interested in moving to a larger home? No matter the reason, it’s your reason. But defining that reason is paramount to the success of your home sale. Knowing at the start is the lynchpin of the entire sales process
