12. Selling Your Home? Price Low, Present Well, Wait
- Friday, April 23, 2010
CHICAGO (AP) - You're finally ready to sell your house. But so are your neighbor and the couple down the street.
This means you have to work harder at it than just a few years ago when putting a "For Sale" sign on your lawn might have been enough. A slow economy and a record level of foreclosures have caused the supply of housing to exceed demand in many markets. So competition among sellers is fierce.
