Selling your home in todays market is not easy ( As Cheryl mentioned). However here are the keys to successful sale of your home:
Pricing your home. Study the market and find the right price for your home. You'll have to see the existing homes competing with you. Find out listing and selling prices for homes sold comparable to yours.
Marketing your home. You'll have to spend time and money to make your visible in the market. Stage your home, Place adds, create fliers, hold open house....
Screen potential buyers. With the sub-prime problems finding a qualified buyer is very important .
Negotiation: You'll need to be able to negotiate a good and safe deal for yourself.
And lastly: Don't get in to legal troubles. This can be very costly ad painful.
