This post is an update on my current real estate projects. I had to turn over a rental property last month, which was very frustrating because the tenant left the property in very bad shape. Fortunately, I was able to find a very good new tenant. We just listed a completed rehab last week that I anticipate to sell very quickly after the Holiday weekend. I've also listed a condo for a client in Mt Pleasant last week, which I also think will sell very quickly. Finally, we've recently bought a new project downtown that will be an amazing house. It needs an absolute ton of work, but I think it will be stunning when completed. I also anticipate it to be very successful from a business perspective, as well.

There's been a lot of attention on For Sale By Owner listings lately. Because of the internet, a lot of sellers think that they will be able to post their house on some of the For Sale By Owner sites, put a sign in the yard and wait for their check rather than working with a Realtor to list their home and pay out a commission. Unfortunately, selling your home on your own is really difficult and there is a less than 10% chance of success for those that do so. The truth is that people who list their homes with a Realtor have a much better experience and almost always walk away with more profit than they otherwise would have. This infographic shows the data behind the positive results that those who list with a good Realtor will experience - the most important being the fact that listing with a Realtor almost always nets you more in the long run.

Today's post is pretty straightforward. There are many things that can add value to your home. Some of these value-add characteristics are things that you can do yourself.

This is where you've called home for some time and now you're selling it. You've had a bunch of strangers walking through your house. You've got to deal with fielding offers and negotiating contracts with the help of your Realtor. You've got to worry about inspections and appraisals. While all this is going on, you're preparing to move, as well. And that's not all! Luckily, there are a number of things you can do to increase the likelihood that you will sell your home quickly. Some of the most stressful moments are when the property is on the market with no offers coming in.
