Olde Raleigh Real Estate newsletter Changed Times for Real Estate in Our Olde Raleigh Real Estate newsletter Neighborhood - These are not changing times; they are changed times. If you need to sell your home, you must be a "Smart Seller." Every home is in a beauty contest and a pricing war therefore, Smart Sellers know they must be extra vigilant in prepping and preparing their home for sale. This includes scrutiny of one's curb appeal, cosmetic and preventative maintenance, staging efforts and a presentation that makes your home irresistible to buyers.  
Smart Sellers are also forward thinking, and know how to increase their odds of selling for top dollar, by pricing their home compelling instead of competitive. A carefully calculated pricing strategy is imperative if you want to win in this market! Read More ....This is from the Quarterly newsletter from Olde Raleigh Real Estate.

TheBeltlineBuzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on TheBeltlineBuzz. That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such. Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of TheBeltlineBuzz. Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way. So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.
That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors. You'll recognize them from the subject line: "TheBeltlineBuzz Dedicated E-mail." Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone. Not for any amount of money.
We hope that you continue to enjoy your BeltlineBuzz. We look forward to delivering it.
