  1. De-clutter everything. Put stuff in storage if you have to, but you do not want people to be wrapped up in your stuff and miss the bones of your house. Part of this is staging. Staging is basically putting your home into functioning order. Throw away all your likes and dislikes this is about the buyer.
  2. Interview your realtor options. Realtors are not a one size fits all option. You can find a realtor that understands what you want and that can market your home in way that will get it sold. They should be able to hold open houses and talk with potential buyers.
  3. Do your own inspection. Buy having a recent inspection you quicken the selling process and you have the best possible idea of what the buyer is going to need to update. You also ensure buyers that key details, such as roofing, is up to date.
  4. You should create your own social media page for your house. Your realtor may do this for you, but some do not have the time. You can highlight important details like a pool, your roofing choice, the custom kitchen, your deck, or anything else you feel is important and will get your home sold.
  5. The most important thing to selling your home is the price. Your buyers want to know that they are getting a home that is worth the price. Check comparable houses in your neighborhood. Be reasonable when setting your price.
