When we moved a few years ago we wanted to sell our old house at the highest value possible. Although most people simply allow the real estate business to take care of this, a friend of mine told us to try Strata Concepts. This is a company that works with you to strategically plan a way to incorporate the real estate business with what they call "out of the box thinking." They help to advertise and market real estate to hopefully postitively influence what you are trying to do. I do not exactly know what this company did for us, but they were able to get the house out in the open and we seemingly did get more offers. The offers did increase slightly, but I don't know if that's from the effects of Strata management or simply the demands of the house/real estate prices. The cost of employing Strata Concepts was not very pricey so if you have to patients and want more results from real estate, they are worth a try.
