Where are you located? An experienced agent in your area should be able to give you more personalized advice on what to do to prepare your home for sale and the most effective list price. However, here are some common pointers:

1.) DeClutter your home. Buyers want to feel roomy not claustrophobic so it's important to keep countertops clear and empty out the pantries and closets as much as possible. If everything is stuffed to the Brin it sends a message that there isn't enough room in the houses. 

2.) DePersonalize the home. Take down all of your personal photos. If removing them from the wall be sure to patch and paint.

3.) Landscaping/ Curb Appeal. Make sure the landscaping is clean and inviting. The snow has been shoveled, the grass is trimmed, the weeds are gone. 

4.) Neutralize the home. If you have any bright colored or exceptionally dark walls it might be worth a few hundred dollars to Killz the wall and paint it a white or tan (a neutral) color.

5.) Get a home inspection before you list the home and fix as much as possible before listing the home. This will add more value to the home and will end up netting you more than if you wait for the buyer to find it. 

Honestly, everything boils down to price. You have to price the home right because if you overprice it, you will end up losing money in the long run. 

Good luck!

Doing a home inspection before listing will help you to remove a lot of what ifs about your home.......they can provide a lot of valuable information to you for under $300.  Also ask a friend to walk through your home and look for things that you do not notice....a scratch on the wall, a crack in the ceiling..etc...removing little issues helps lookers to not be so picky and miss other things....good luck

Great question Ronda! Pay the highest commission. If you pay at least 3% to the buyer's agent and the other homes are paying 1%, 1.5%, 2%, 2.5%, etc. I bet you will make up the difference by getting a higher offer. Capitalism works!

Hi Ronda, Interview local Realtors, look for one that specializes in your neighborhood. Anytime a person is looking to sell a commodity, put it on the open market for top dollar. Do not allow cash or institutional buyers buy your home off market for less than it is worth. Best of luck! Spirit

Every house needs professional photography and full marketing plan. We know that’s not all your home would need. Also let’s make sure when buyers are waking in they notice the house feel, looks and smell fresh. Fresh paint and updating your some fixtures can go long way. Price will also reflect location and condition.

1. Hire a reputable and experienced real estate agent. This will help you get the best price for your house. 2. Make sure your house is in good condition and that repairs and upgrades are done prior to listing. 3. Thoroughly clean, stage, and photograph your home to create the best possible impression. 4. Price your house competitively. Research recent sales of comparable homes in your neighbourhood and price yours accordingly. 5. Promote your home with online ads, open houses, and other marketing strategies. 6. Follow up with prospective buyers and be willing to consider all offers.

Listen carefully to your trusted realtor, He/she should only use a professional photographer and market the home everywhere possible. regular open houses and follow the market very carefully, adjust price as needed but NEVER start too high in a balanced market.
