Posted from: http://www.zillow.com/blog/avoiding-sellers-remorse-123175/

In many real estate markets around the country, inventory is low and sellers are in the driver’s seat again.

In some cases, homes are selling for more than asking price. After years of a sluggish buyers’ market, many real estate agents are trying to get would-be sellers to list their homes now.

It seems like a great time to sell. But how can you know for sure if it’s a great time for you to sell?

Would You Rather: Rent in the City or the Suburbs?

Posted from: http://www.zillow.com/blog/rent-in-city-or-suburbs-197435/

Imagine your dream rental home. Are you transported to a roomy 4-bedroom home with a big backyard nestled on a quiet street? Or are you in a sleek townhouse right in the thick of a big city’s hustle and bustle?
