Selling your home is one of the biggest decisions (and undertakings) you go through as an owner. 

In order to keep positive equity, deciding WHEN to sell is just as important as how much you decide to list your property at.

Seeing data and trends make a huge difference, so you are informed to capitalize at the right time.
