You're going to hear this worded different ways but I say selling a home comes down to Pricing, presentation and availability. Think of how you would shop for a home. After you have a general idea where you want to live you look at what you can afford or want to spend. Then if you have a good agent the agent looks at surrounding properties to make sure you don't offer to much. If the price you are asking is to high the buyer substitutes another property for yours. You lose.
Secondly your presentation. It starts with accurate but great photos. They should have a flow and pull the prospective buyer into your home. I like to do them in the order that they buyer will see the house in upon entering the home. However you don't want the buyer to be disappointed after seeing the photos and comparing the home to them. I.e. Your home should look like it did when photographed and, "unpersonalized". Which is a means uncluttered.
Then your home needs to be made and kept available for viewing. Open houses only sell 8%-10% of homes but they do help. Do all of these and make sure the title is lien free. Then your home will sell if properly priced.

Hi Kathleen, It is very likely that Ed may not be watching this question given the passage of time. I'd suggest you reach out to him directly via his profile - I'm sure he�39;d love to hear from you.

Hello there, Nosey Neighbor,

The market drives assessment, not the other way around! I wrote about it awhile back:

See you Friday!

Hi Sharon, Jeanne Feenick here - suggest you post this in the Using Trulia section - you are apt to get a very quick response from the Trulia team. I"ve noticed a number of posts regarding disappointing search results so I hope that Trulia will focus on this as the success of the searching experience is essential to drawing and holding buyers.
