Hi Debi,
I am not from your market. However, I would simply interview 3 experts in your market place and get their professional opinion in person.

I believe that is what all sellers want to know. There are key elements to selling your home in the shortest time possible for the most value possible. !. Having an exceptional agent is key. I would suggest interviewing at least 3 agents. Ensure that they are knowledgeable about your home and the neighborhood your home is located in. 2. Keeping the home tidy and ready for showings is also another big thing. People want to view your home as their future home so if the home is cluttered or messy it is hard to see past these things. 3. Curb appeal is also a big time show stopper, if the exterior of the home is not well maintained possible buyers will not want to stop, or they will make preconceived judgments before viewing the home. There are many other ways to get your home sold. If you would like more information please feel free to contact me at anytime.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Make your home ready to show - clear out clutter - make sure it is clean, free of odors etc...and most importantly price it right!

Exactly! Pricing a home correctly in the market is by far the most quickly way to sell your property. When a home shows well, inside/out & is clutter free and is priced according to your market, there is no reason the property should not sell quickly. With the exception of poor weather conditions or seasonal buyer situations. Best of luck!

Selling a home quickly, doesn't mean you have to give it away but it does mean that it needs to be priced right with appeal to buyers. Since price is the very first consideration for a buyer this should also be your initial focus.

Focus on preparing your home to leave a positive image on every person that walks through the door. Don't overlook curb appeal because it will turn heads an bring people inside. By creating a pleasant visiting experience you are essentially opening people's eyes to the potential the property holds relative to their future needs.

Consider the following:

Deep clean, paint and repair, de-clutter, plant, mow & trim, organize, have your home always "showing ready," minimize the presence of pets, remember less is better with furnishings, etc.

Best wishes,

There are many, many, many ways to sell your house quick.
Which of those way are available to you depends on the choices you make.
IF I were in the business of selling 'Deep Fried Twinkies" I would know to place my food truck where folks buy things of that nature...the county and state fair.
You face the same issue..."Where are the buyers for my home?" "How do I get the informaton regarding my home to them?"
You ALREADY know the answer.
So what you are really asking is 'What's the second best way?"
Craigslist, a really, really, really big sign, a newpaper ad, Sillyow...and of course...lower and lower and lower the price.
Two weeks have passed since posting your question.....What have your results been?
What IS working for you?

Best of success,

The first step is to have a professional Comparative Market Analysis completed. You are then able to price your home competitive using the current fair market value as your baseline. You then need to de-clutter and de-personalize your home and ensure your home is as clean as possible. An easy and inexpensive way to quickly improve the appearance of your home is fresh paint. The overall idea is to make you home "pop" when a prospective buyer walks through the door.

Have a local agent do a comparative market analysis for you and price your home approximately 10% less than the determined fair market value. Depending on where you live, market value can be very different from assessed value so it is in your best interest to have that market analysis done professionally if you truly want a fast sale.

Hi Debie

Caution. Your request will attract many agents. Your challenge will be to find the one who will work for you with your best interest as priority.
Gather information before you interview any agents.
There is an article, Consultation Interviewing Real Estate Agents, on the site Your-Road-Home.com. that will serve you well.
Trulia is also a good source of information and when your are ready to interview real estate agents you will find some from your area offering their services on Trulia.

Good Luck, gather lots of objective information and be picky about who choose

Good afternoon, it looks like you have many answers to your question, but without a doubt PRICE is most important and then the marketing. If a house is priced right, it will get people in the door to see it. Remember, you can't get it sold if no one is seeing it. And that is where marketing is important.

If you have any questions, I'd be happy to chat with you.

Hi Debi:

I can absolutely guarantee that I will get your house sold as fast as you need it sold and as quickly as you're able to close! Is there a catch? Kind of. The catch is that you may have to lower your price. But if you're in a situation where time is more important than money, then I have the resources to get your house sold VERY QUICKLY!

The reason I can guarantee a very fast sale is that I'm an investor. I can buy your house myself. But if my price doesn't work for you, I'm also an agent. I can list your property for you that will allow you to get more money. I have the tools and technology that will give your home the best exposure so that you get the best price within the time frame that works for you.

But maybe you don't have much equity. I can help there too! I'm a Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE). CDPE's are licensed agents who have been specifically trained to work with distressed homeowners. I have a long list of solutions to those homeowners' problems. I interview those individuals to find the solution that best fits their needs.

I'm absolutely certain that I can sell your home within your required time frame. Give me a call today so that we can sit down and tailor a plan that best suits your needs!

Ms. Brown-

There is SO much that goes into selling it quickly. Pricing it appropriately from the beginning is key. Nearly as important is the manner in which it is marketed. What sets my team apart is that we hire a professional photographer for every single listing. The photographs make a HUGE impact on the speed of contract as well as the sales price! Aside from that, having an agent who knows what to look for with regard to loan type, concessions, contingencies, closing dates, and buyer qualifications will help maximize your return in the shortest time.

It would be my pleasure to discuss further. You can hire me, my photographer, my marketing director, my assistant, my transaction coordinator and my buyers agents all for the same price as hiring a single agent. We get the job done efficiently, effectively, and without juggling so many tasks that we cut corners or miss opportunities to get a buyer into your home.

Please call or email at your convenience. I look forward to talking with you soon!

I'm not sure if you have already found the answer you are looking for but I wanted to weigh in.

Good evening finding the right realtor is key. Once your home is listed pricing your home correctly is a must. Keep the home and yard clean and ensure the home available for showings. Ensure that your realtor has a set marketing plan. Chesapeake is a well sought out area. If you would like to sit down and see what your home value is please feel free to give me a call anytime. I also live in chesapeake and I am very knowledgeable about the area.

Well to start with making sure it shows well outside as well as inside. You want when people drive up that your home is inviting, has some curb appeal. Then you would want to price it right being competitive with the other comparable in the neighborhood. Open your house for open houses inviting potential buyers to come in. And call me to work with you and all your real estate matters.

Hi Debi -
Think like this... "highest price, shortest time". However consider, the simple key to selling a home fast is to price it right. You could spend all the money in the world fixing up and marketing your house, but the wrong price on the right house guarantees no sale.

I am sure you have done your homework... best of luck. If I can help, please don't hesitate to call. Sometimes multiple opinions help. :-)
