Inventory is low and homes are selling fast. But now is not the time to skip steps. Even little things can mean more money in your pocket. Here are 15 things you should be doing before putting the sign in the yard.
There’s no question – almost everywhere you turn these days, it’s a seller’s market. Low inventory, pent up demand, a growing trend towards remote work, and historic low-interest rates mean that sellers these days are very much in the driver’s seat.

Even small efforts right now can lead to big payoffs when it comes to negotiating offers.
Here are fifteen ways you can put in a little effort and see a lot of returns.
