What Buyers and Sellers Should Know About New Home Sales Plunge

Hobson offered some additional tips for people who are in the housing market.

To improve the chances of selling your home, de-clutter it. This will make the house look bigger and cleaner. Spruce up your house with minor improvements: repair door handles and improve the landscaping to make your house more attractive.

Buyers currently have the bargaining position in this market. See if the buyer is willing throw-in extras, such as built-in appliances or paying some of your first year's property taxes or association dues. Your requests should be within reason.

If you are looking to buy a foreclosed home, make sure you see the house first before buying it. Get a private inspection done so you know exactly what you are getting.
