Help Us Write a Home Selling Guide, Get a T-Shirt

Today, we’re officially launching the remaining sections of our Home Buying Guide. This is something we’ve been working on for a long, long time, and it feels good to get it out the door.

That’s not to say we won’t continue trying to make the guide an even better resource for home buyers; we’ll be tweaking, polishing, adding to, and editing this thing until the next ice age. If you have suggestions, comments, or questions about any of our HBG content, please leave a comment here, or on any page of the guide itself.

But we are starting to gear up for our next big guide project — the Redfin Home Seller’s Guide. We’ll be packing it full of useful information, with a heavier emphasis on interactive features, quizzes, graphics, illustrations, and other goodies.

Here’s where you come in: if you’re selling a home, what’s the stuff that keeps you up at night? What can’t you find good information about? What’s confusing? What’s frustrating? What do you wish you’d known three months ago?

Finally, if you’d like to be involved in providing customer feedback on preview versions of the guide as it’s developed, just drop a comment here and let us know. We’d love your input, and if we choose you to be in our customer feedback group, we’ll send you a free Redfin T-shirt.

    I'd definitely like to see more information on shortsales and reos. So many listings in California have turned into ss and reos and I'm not sure people understand what the actual short sale process is. It would be nice to see that explained as part of the Home Buying Guide.

    I would love to participate in the customer feedback group.  In the last 6 years, we have sold 4 properties (with agents) and purchased 3 properties (with agents).  Redfin has always been the first tool we use to locate a home we were interested with.  Silvia

    I'd love to know exactly the sources of data – and then the ability to take the raw data from your reports to see how the story is created.  

    Also – I have some ideas about the way filters/searching for homes as well.

  • Rebecca Wang

    Im happy to participate in the customer feedback. When I'm looking for houses I always search for them on Redfin because you guys provide information that is very detail and you guys have actual redfin agents go look at the house and come back and post feedback on the website. However, you guys should add the school in which the house goes to because sometimes it just says the District but not the school name. I have looked over many houses maybe even hundreds of houses and I have always looked on the Redfin website for updates and new houses for sale. I have many great advice and feedback to tell. What sometimes is frustrating is that not many houses have agents feedbacks. I would love to see what other people think of the houses not just my opinion.

    I LOVE you guys because you show the selling history of the house and if the asking price has changed over time.

    It'd be nice to have a search option for duplexes and “2 on a lot” houses.

    Good luck on your home selling guide, I’m sure that it will turn out pretty great.
