Interesting this question was posted back in 2010. Marketing a home has changes since then. Now 95%+ of buyers searching for their new home online, staging is essential. It is part of marketing a home. Buyers do not want to see how sellers live, but how they can live in this "new" house they are seeking.

Generally you can expect to see about 3/4 to 3% of the listing price of a house. They main living areas should be staged and generally the master is the most important bedroom to stage. So to include all the rooms in a vacant house is not always necessary. It depends on the size of the house, and the market it is in.

I received email from Trulia saying that 9325 W. Hinsdale Place in Littleton CO 80128 is no longer on the market. That is MY house and it is still on the market. Please correct your information…

Neither. Some buyers don't care for gas, some don't care for electric. One isn't going to bring in a higher value than the other. An appraiser isn't going to give a gas range any extra value, or subtract for an electric one. I wouldn't pay much attention to that. I'd focus more on the overall condition of the home, age of appliances and major systems like heating, electric, plumbing, roof, windows, etc. Make sure your home is priced at "fair market value". A good local Realtor would be happy to give you a complete market analysis. ... more

Alice, you have most likely SOLD your Littleton home, by now, since this question was asked in 2010.
The market has changed dramatically since 2010. Today, April 30th of 2015 we are in a Seller's Market. There is a shortage in our current inventory and buyer demand is at an all time high! In today's market, upgrades are usually unnecessary to sell. However, if you'd like to get the most $$$ for your home, some upgrades may help you. These upgrades need to purposeful and appeal to a wide range of buyers. As far as a credit goes, I would not suggest a credit for anything in this market. Just lower the price and buyers will be all over it! ... more

Trust your listing agent. If they are doing their job, they will suggest a counteroffer price based off of the current market value of your home and the number of offers you have received on the home, etc. They should be familiar with your neighborhood and all of the factors that determine what makes for a good sales price for you. ... more

Detach yourself emotionally, and find the right price to list at. Price will make all the difference in the world.

Chad Bergman answered:
Financing at that price point seems to be a major hurdle for buyer's today. I use a software called Mortgage Coach which helps put dollars & cents into different financing options for clients. This can really help address the financial questions and can help maybe the 700K buyer reach for the 800K property.

below is a reference video which helps explain the system of moving into a higher priced home in today's down market.

Let me know how I can help or further explain.
