Want to learn how to sell your house? Simple: Put on your buyer hat and tour a bunch of homes for sale in your area. That’s what I did, and I learned a ton about how to sell my own place.
I’d bought my cozy one-bedroom condo in Irvine, CA, three years ago; it was perfect for a single 20-something ready to break away from the renting game. But now, I’m married, with dreams of having kids who will need their own rooms and with plans to get a brood of pups, who probably won’t be impressed with my cement balcony “backyard.” With these goals on our horizon, I realized that my husband and I were going to need a bigger place.
