how do we list a home for rent or sale?


First I would suggest hiring a top real estate agent.  I suggest that you research and pick a top agent that actually markets homes.  If I have a client that is outside of my area I research for them and give them a couple of top producers.  There are a lot of agents that do not do much when trying to sell a home.  Do research and interview several agents.  Then pick a winner. 

What is required to sell a house?


Technically all you need is a deed to transfer owner ship.  However, in today's real estate world, it is a lot more complicated.  Do you have a more specific question?

How important is pricing it right the day a property is listed?


When you price the home at market value you sometimes get bidding wars athat drive the price up.  The bidding war may not have happened if it was overpriced in hopes of getting an offer.  And then people would compare your home to other homes that are priced correctly... this is not good. 

did my agent do a good job ?


This should not have gotten that far.  Loan under writers should have picked that up sooner. 

selling house


I know a great agent in Allentown, let me know and I will give you their contact information. [Removed by Zillow Moderator. Please see our Good Neighbor Policy.] is my direct email.If you have a particular question please post it as a reply and we will be glad to answer it for you.

why was no one at the open house listed


I would recommend that if that is the case that you get yourself a buyers agent and not use the listing agent if you are interested in that particular house.  You need someone who is willing to work for you.

How does this all work?


In real estate everything is negotiable.  However, in this case, what is done is done and unless both sides agree to the change you are locked in.  Depending on your state laws, you may be able to go after the buyer should they back out for no reason.  Selling your home is stressful for the buyer and seller.  In most cases the sale goes as planned and only in rare instances are there problems with the sale.  The important thing for your agent and you is to stay in the loop so you know what is happening with the loan and buyer.  Good luck to you and congratulations!
