things you should know before selling your home

I am always amazed by the huge variance between "perception" and "reality" in almost everything, but especially in home buying, selling, and investing. I suppose TV Reality shows like "Flip this House" and "Love it or List it" fuel the fire.

And here at The Top, we're "bullish"…
