Janice, so many of us are dealing with a difficult selling market. And even creative outlandish marketing and ideas seem to leave us scratching our heads. If you are choosing to use a Realtor to list your property - interview them. You want an agent that will sell his/herself to you! Working with a Realtor, you have access to a market analysis including the most recent sales in your area. This will give you information on what price to list for the quickest sale possible. The multiple listing service gives your property lots of exposure to all the brokers and agents in the area. Make sure your Realtor company has a good marketing plan to get your property exposure.
If you are planning on selling your home on your own, you are going to have to work hard to get it advertised. Put in local papers, Craig's list, websites like forsalebyowner.com and advertise open houses. It would also be helpful to work with a Realtor for a commission portion to encourage them to bring you a buyer.
Price it well and advertise alot! And ask opinions from family and friends on curb appeal. They may be able to provide a few tips to get some buyers in the door!
