Depending on the equity you have in your current residence, you may find a small bank or credit union in AZ that will cross-collateralize both properties until your vacated home sells. A large brokerage also may have a preferred status with an investor that does this.... Happy funding, Rudi

Guarantee is a strong word, but Marilyn is right on target. There is alot of doom and gloom on the news about the Market. But, the truth is if the home is priced right, and there is a solid sales and marketing strategy behind it, it will move. The main ingrediants are, price, location, curb appeal (inside and out), and an effective internet marketing plan. America shops the internet, the exact reason why we are all here. And remember, there is nothing lost by testing the market. Test the market, see where it leads you, and insure your getting the feedback from your Realtor, both good and bad, of the showings.  Armed with the right information, and a good plan, you should be fine.

Hi kgraham

If only important events came with a guarantee. 

You can improve your chances to quickly sell by having an enticing price on an enticing house. 

Contact a local real estate professional to come up with an aggressive marketing plan to sell. 

Starting with an analysis of comparable properties nearby, you can set an attractive price. 

The real estate pro can advise you on staging your house to make it stand out in showings.

There are many innovative ideas for advertising your house to attract buyers.  Use of the Internet is essential.  Having plenty of pictures and a video will help.  Your real estate pro will have numerous suggestions to achieve success for you.

Good luck!

Hello,
According to the National Association of Realtors the average home is taking 154 days to sell.  Now the bank owned homes that are priced aggressively are selling in a much shorter time period.  The best thing for you to do is have professional realtor look up comparables in your neighborhood, take into consider the condition of your home versus the recent solds and the recent actives and determine what a median sales price could be. Then if you really want to see it start the price lower than that.  I would be happy to offer a FREE market analysis for you if you like.  Tina Rospond 602 214 2872  Century 21 Premier

There are lots of factors about selling. The major one now is price. Pricing your home correctly with the market is tough. You are probably competeing against foreclosures and short sales. Remember agree or not those are the comps....
