The best way is to interview some Realtors that specialize in listings in your area. They can give you a market analysis so you can see what similar homes are selling for. Don't just go with the Realtor who gives you the highest number.... go with the one that shows you the data so you can see for yourself where the home should be priced. Pricing a home too high is by far the #1 mistake seller's make and a lot of Realtor's allow their clients to do so to get a listing.
If you price your home correctly to start it will receive the most traffic and the more eyes you get on a property the more it will sell for. If you put too much padding into the purchase price you are then competing with superior homes and your home will not attract interest buyers. It sounds simple but this is by far the step that most people do not follow.
Once you have the price established the next step is to make sure the home shows it's absolute best. That means getting it clinically clean and fixing all of those little issues you may have lived with. Believe me, taking care of the little items will go a long way to helping you achieve the maximum price you want to get.
Best of luck to you.
