Off-season sellers: Make your home more enticing
There's little doubt that the housing market is finally showing signs of a measurable recovery. The latest S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index, which tracks the selling prices of homes nationally, showed a 3% increase in home prices compared with September 2011. The authors of the report cited stabilizing housing markets and slight increases in household wealth as reasons for the encouraging data. This is positive news for the real-estate market, but it’s of little value for homeowners still struggling to sell their home. Homeowners face stiff competition from the many other similar properties on the market. How do you make your home stand out?
