Do houses for sale ever consider renting as an option?

Answer

yes, sometimes they do.  It can be a tough process.  You will need to contact the agents who represent the sellers and specifically ask them if their client would consider that as an option.  In years past it was likely for them to have already ruled out that option for various reasons.  They would rent and wait out the market if possible since the values were often lower than they wanted them to be.  We were often encouraging our sellers to wait and hope for market rebalancing.  Right now people are getting more and may be tempted to wait even just one more year to see how much more money they may get if values are on an upswing. Good luck.Christy KimbrelKeller Williams

how do I estimate the value of my home for sale ?

Answer

Even if you arent really wanting to sell your porperty right now; the best thing you can do I email a local real estate expert who can send you nearby sales and you can asses it yourself. Better yet, have them out to your home and assess it for you.
