You really need to have a 'ball park' understanding of the possible sale price of your home.
No it is definitely not too early.
However, do a real evaluation. The most productive and investment wise action you can take is cleaning and painting. Maybe even flooring. If you see the thought dance across your mind..."It's not so bad." you just lost $25,000!

NO...don't be helpful. NO. you don't need to be available to 'answer' buyer questions. Take a walk...a long one.
