One of the hardest parts of selling your home is all the unknowns: Who will buy your place, and for how much? How long will it take? That uncertainty might make you particularly eager to soak up advice from just about anyone who's willing to share. Problem is, just because your sister or co-worker swear by certain rules that worked for them, it doesn't mean they'll be a magic solution for you, too. Fact is, a lot of the real estate advice circulating out there is outdated, region-specific, or just plain wrong. As proof, check out this list of tips that many home sellers hear ... then learn how these words of wisdom don't always hold water. Let this serve as a reminder that when selling a home, you should take everything you hear with a huge grain of salt.

The goal of HOP is to foster long-term peaceful coexistence among Jewish-Israelis, Palestinian Citizens of Israel, and Palestinians by bringing together teenagers from the Middle East with American teenagers in an interfaith setting. We create opportunities for participants, host families and community members to gain the mutual understanding that comes through personal encounters. We also aim to train future leaders in the Middle East and in the United States in peace-building skills, as well as to educate American families and communities about the Middle East. We plan on being more and more involved in this wonderful organization!
