Pricing is #1. If you want to compete in today's market, you have to be competitive. Work with a good Agent and they will guide you,

It's all about two things:

a. price
b. realtor and company/network they have to spread the word

Best wishes!

HIre the best agent you can find, one that has experience and has sold homes in your area and price range within the last 6 months. Check to see what kind of marketing strategy the agent will use. A strong intenet presence would be very important to me, since 80% of homebuyers begin their search online.

*Look carefully at the numbers, price it lower than the active competition and less than recent solds.
*Put your best face forward. Don't show the house until you have everything show worthy. Declutter, Clean and Sparkly, nothing that looks dated and definitely nothing that needs repair.
*Don't forget the curb appeal. The entrance and the front door are the first things that the buyer will see.
*Make sure your photos for online marketing are great! Good lighting, clear bright photos that show the best features of the home and at least 25 of them.
*A pre-inspection can be a good thing. If there are problems, you can address them before putting the home on the market and it eliminates surprises. It gives buyers a comfort level when you can offer with your disclosure an authorities opinion on the condition of the property.
*Make the home accessible. Let the agents show it at a moment's notice if you need to. You need to think of it more as a product and put yourself in the buyers shoes.

Good Luck!

I suggest pricing the property very low for a schduled weekend for showing only.This should bring in a large number of potential buyers all at once. A bidding war to buy the property should drive the price up.

In today's market, pricing and marketing that maximizes your exposure are paramount--price you property competitively--review data regarding recently closed similar properties in the immediate area in order to determine a fair listing price--make sure the property shows well, is neat, clean, clutter free, fresh paint if needed, remove/rearrange any bulky furniture, spruce up the exterior for curb appeal, etc.; interview a few agents from different realty offices and choose the one you like best and has the most offer--he/she can best advise to ways that will speed up your sale.

Depending on the price range there could be resistance. If you not only have a great realtor behind you but an actual financial strategy as well will help tremendously. http://www.wichitahomeloans.com can help maximize traffic with a proper inclusion of financial pointers for potential buyers.

Make sure you have it priced right. There are a lot of houses on the market so you want to be the best value for the price. That brings you to presentation. You want to make your home look inviting and help buyers see themselves in the house. Remove all clutter, clean really good and light some candles. It the price is very competitive and the house looks great you should get to your goal of selling your home.

You first need to compare what other homes have sold in the area and evaluate the differences. Next compare to the competition; other homes on the market which might also be considered for purchases by the same buyers looking at your home. After that you need to do everything to make yours more attractive to any buyer that may be looking and have your property marketed professionally. The key is to get buyers drawn to your house and offer the best value.

Price & Presentation..first of all .make sure your house is priced competively, possibly price it just under market, that way you may generate multiple offers and secondly make sure your presentation is impeccable, everything immaculately clean, all maintenance issues addressed, neutral decor...consider hiring a home stage to show your home to it's absolute best. We are in a very competetive market right noe.

Price competitively. It always comes down to price. Walk through your home as if you were a buyer. Look over ever detail. Would you want to buy your home? Is it warm and welcoming? Clean? Move in ready?

Good Luck,
