Sorry, Tim there is no magic solution. In the end it will all come down to how attractive the property is, how well it's priced, and luck. Talk to a few local agents and pick the one you fell most comfortable with.

Hi Tim,

Consider the following when listing your home:

1. Price-all buyers begin here. since most buyers are seeking value, your home will need to be priced competitively with the distressed market....short sales & foreclosures.

2. Appeal- make the home shine both inside and out. clean, orgainze, minimize, paint, plant, repair, etc. It will help to be the most appealing home in your price range.

3. Visibility-list with a market leader, one that has an established reputation and the best visibility of all the agencies in your area. Request a comprehensive marketing plan in writing for your specific property....

Best wishes,

Tim, connect with an experienced area Realtor and discuss honestly your circumstances have that Realtor, show you comparable properties that are currently on the market and would be competing with yours, and those that have recently sold...... Make sure to listen carefully, as in today's market it is very important that a property is priced right/competitively and is well prepared for sale so that it will show well to the prospective buyer/buyers...

Good luck to you!

Not knowing the circumstances that are warranting a quick sale--work with an agent and review comps--recently sold similar properties in the immediate area--decide on a very competitive price and plan marketing that maximizes your exposure-your agent can best advise.

Tim - the other agents answered very well and I am sure I cannot comment much further. However, you did not explain your reason for wanting or needing to get a quick offer, in this particular market. Also, you did not advise whether or not you were in an "upside down" situation or if your mortgage was low enough to receive a lower offer. These questions should probably be answered, so we can continue to properly advise you.

Good luck with your sale.

The best way is to locate a professional agent who will know how to properly price and market your home for a quick sale. You need a top notch agent who knows the neighborhood well and if you need any assistance in locating the perfect one just let me know and I will be happy to help as I have a lot of contacts in the area.

The next most important issue will be price and that must be carefully reviewed in relationship to the condition of your property and how it stacks up to recently sold homes in the area. The fact is if you price it right it will sell quickly. If you do not price it properly it will sit there forever.

How your home will be marketed will have a lot to say about the attention it gets from perspective buyers and this is why selecting the right agent is so critical. If occupied, the tenant will play a large role in this process and hopefully they are willing to work with you on having the property in good condition and easy to show.

The very best of luck and if I can be of assistance in any way please do not hesitate to contact me.

Always at Your Service,

I agree with the other answer. Find yourself a knowledgeable agent and for a quick sale price a little below current price for the area. Another is you could offer some closing costs, bonus to realtors, and you said it was a rental see if your tenant would beinterested in purchaseing.

Good Luck

Hi Tim,

Hook-up with a knowledgeable agent in your area and list the property a reasonable amount below market value. In my area, below market listed homes receive offers from investors almost immediately (within a couple of days) If you receive an all cash offer you may be able to close in 2 weeks or so. The question is are you willing to take a lower price for your home?

So the answer to your question is yes, but it will probably cost you.

Good luck,
