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 am considering selling my house and i am not sure if i should make some upgrades to get the price that i want or save that money to give a discount to the buyer. the questions that every seller struggles with is the following:

    1) Timing
    2) Listing price
    3) Getting a good agent who will be willing to do open house every weekend :)
    4) Tips on should i fix this or give a discount to the buyer etc
    5) Photos
    6) Rent out vs Keep it on the Market in case you have to move out of town.

    I strongly hope to join the customer feedback group! I was addicted to the Redfin search system and finally purchased a house with Redfin and would love to share the memory to millions of users!

    I love this technology driven company!

    A list of closing costs and services would be nice.  Folks don't usually take these added fees into account when purchasing a home.
