Applegate Valley Realty Tips

START SMART: Use technology and the Internet. No matter what some of the “older and more experienced” may tell you, you need the Internet to market in the real estate world today.

PRICE IT RIGHT: Activity in the first month of a listing is always the best, don’t risk wasting it. Price too high, and you’ll scare off many buyers. Price too low, and you’re leaving money on the table.

HIRE A REAL ESTATE AGENT: Studies show that home sellers who use a real estate agent to represent them generally get a better price than those who sell the home themselves.
