Some folks sell real estate every few years. Others sell only once in their lives. No matter what category you fall into, the process can be quite challenging. Real estate is typically a significant investment, whether it is your home or a rental property. It cost you a bundle when you bought it, and you've probably invested quite a bit of time and money into it. You certainly don't want to make a mistake now. However, although it may seem like a giant step, it is not an impossible one.
