Not sure why you are so decided on wanting to do above and beyond, what the marketing and advertising dept. and the skills of your listing agent should be doing and if you hired a full service
real estate brokerage they will.
If you want to do anything in addition to what your listing agent will be doing, and must have told you
about..... there are very valuable things that YOU as the homeowner can do other then sending out
fliers or doubling up on advertising your listing agent already intends to do in a very professional manner and to produce actual results.
But sit down with your listing agent and ASK what you can do to help....
I have usually a lot of suggestions to my clients so take the advice of your listing agent he or she
are the experienced professionals, listen to their advice!
I always tell my Sellers, prepare your home well (I give them a long list of things they can do)
like staging the home right, moving around furniture or removing some, removing decorative items,
may be paint a wall here and there in up to date darker tones, may be remove out of fashion
curtains, replace with blinds, may be your home needs to refinish the hardwood flooring, or put in new carpeting.... How does the curb appeal of your home encourage buyers to want to see your home? If it does not scream "I have to see this home inside" then you must do something about it, sometimes it is just additional or changed landscaping, sometimes it requires painting the front door in an inviting and complimentary color, if you do not have flood lights against the home, to show it in exciting light at night, may be that is what you need to do. I my list can go on and on.
So before you attempt anything, that will not work, do the things and I mean the recommendations of your personal listing agent, before coming up with your own ideas.
I am glad you want to do whatever it takes to help sell your home faster or at a better price, so
discuss it with your listing agent FIRST!
Good Luck to you
