Just need a little more information: what do you consider inexpensive? How many bedrooms and baths do you need or would you like? In a perfect world, what style would the house be?

90% of buyers begin their home search by looking on-line. It's very important that your home has maximum exposure on the internet on the various real estate sites.
Also, make sure that your home is showing it's best. Curb appeal is important. Check your front door and entry to determine that it is clean with no peeling paint. Add a pot or two of flowers for color. Clean your windows.
On the interior, pack away personal items such as family photos and valuables to allow the buyer to visualize themselves living there. Remove all clutter and any unnecessary furniture so that the rooms appear spacious and neat. Organize your closets.

Hope this is helpful.
Good luck selling!
