Thoughts, feelings, and emotions are stirred at the suggestion of selling the family home. It may be that just the parents are living there now, but the house may still be very much in the hearts and memories of the children that spent any length of time there. Someone can be gone from the house for 30 years or more, yet the thought of the house no longer being in the family is disturbing. Often the house is the anchor for a family that is spread out across the country or the world. Even so, there may still exist the hope of family gathering once more at the dining room table, of bringing one's own children to play in the tree house, or playing with Grampa's trains in the basement.

Our Market Ready Guide provides strategic advice and useful tips to get top dollar for your house when the time comes to sell.
