Let me know if you are planning to sell your home, I have a very aggressive marketing plan. Also my service goes beyond marketing as I give you advice on preparing your home for the market to obtain the most offers and the best possible price, and communicating with you about the status, communicating with the other agent and the lender as well.

Servicing your real estate need is my priority!
Having the greatest amount of exposure of the property's listing out on numerous real estate web sites is key to attracting the largest amount of potential buyers. Over 90% of buyers begin their search on the internet so the more exposure the better.

You have heard and seen about staging on the various DYI shows. The presentation of your home is like the first impression at a job interview. It begins with the landscaping and entrance. A tidy yard with a little color from plants is inviting and gives the buyer an immediate feeling of a well-cared for home. You also want to de-clutter (remove items from counters, clean out closets, remove junk). The feel you are going for is that the home as plenty of room for you to live in and that you are not being forced to stuff things in closets or stack them around the house in order to reside there. A nice fragance in the home is also inviting but avoid overpowering scents.
The more available your home is for viewing the more chances that your buyer will be able to walk through the doors. Too many sellers limit the availability too strictly for showing their homes leading potential buyers to feel that you do not really want to sell your home. Availability also includes accessibility. Make sure if you have a pet in the home that it is removed for showings or kenneled in such a way as not to frighten potential buyers.
Pricing, pricing, pricing is like location, location, location. Work with a knowledgable Realtor and price your competitively but not unrealistically. The buyers in today's market have many more tools at their fingertips than those in the past. Today's buyers know how many houses have sold in your neighborhood and for what prices opposed to previous years. Over price your home and the buyer may skip right over it.
All the pretty pictures cannot do as much as staging and good pricing.
A lot of people also feature their listings on websites such as trulia, zillow, realtor.com, and homes.com. this way they come up first in their area when people are searching.
Open houses are also a great way to get plenty of people in the door at once so you aren't having to leave your home for showings all the time.
