Everything You Need To Know About Listing Contracts

Image
So you've decided to sell your home, and you've decided (wisely) not to For-Sale-By-Owner. Now all that's left is to hire a Colorado Springs real estate agent and sign the listing agreement to get your home on the market, right?

Well, almost. Before you officially sign the listing agreement, you have to decide which type of listing agreement you want to use. While some of the different options may be similar, they each have their own nuances and serve slightly different purposes. Here is a quick look at a few of the different kinds of listing agreements.

When Should You Sell Your Home?

Image
The decision to sell your home is a big one. Even if you have only lived in your house for a few years, you have likely already invested a great deal of time, energy, and resources in it. How do you decide if you're ready to shift the focus of all of those resources onto a new home - and spend the additional time and energy required to get your home ready to sell? How do you know if the time is right?


There are a lot of different factors that can influence when the best time to sell your home may be, but here are a few considerations that can help you determine when the time will be right for you.

The Market
Unfortunately, one the biggest factors that can influence when you should sell your home actually has nothing to do with you - and everything to do with the market.

As one of the top real estate agents in Colorado Springs, it is my distinct pleasure to celebrate this great month with you and to help you pursue your dreams of buying homes in Colorado Springs!

Origins of National Homeownership MonthObserving National Homeownership Month is a fairly new practice. These observances originally lasted one week and were instituted by the Clinton Administration in 1995. In 2002, President George W. Bush expanded it to include the entire month of June. In part, his proclamation stated: Homeownership is an important part of the American Dream... A home provides shelter and a safe place where families can prosper and children can thrive. For many Americans, their home is an important financial investment, and it can be a source of great personal pride and an important part of communi…
