Foreclosure sales were once rare. But in some markets now, they make up 20 percent to more than half of all sales. If you are a long-term homeowner who has kept up on your mortgage payments, you need to get that message out. This is your key advantage over a much lower-priced foreclosure, especially in light of the robosigning mess.

The buyer knows who he or she is buying the home from -- no title issues here. There are ways to tactfully get across this key point in your ads, with phrases like "long-term ownership" and "been in the family for decades," Weintraub says.
