Price It Right
This is no time to put your emotions in the driver’s seat. If you really want to move the needle, you’ve got to price your home to sell. It doesn’t matter how much you paid for it eight years ago or what you owe on your mortgage. Your home is worth what buyers will pay, plain and simple.
Price it too high, and buyers will pass it up without ever stepping through the door. Price it too low, and you’ll give it away to the first taker. Work with an experienced real estate agent to find a happy medium so you don’t lose time or money. Your agent can help you set a competitive price by comparing recent sales of homes in your area.
Hire a Mover and Shaker
Don’t waste your time on an agent who only sells a handful of homes a year. It takes more than a sign in your yard to sell your home fast. You need a pro with a plan, and a short deadline calls for the best in the business!
A true pro knows there’s strength in numbers and brings a creative mind and a mile-long contacts list to expose your home to as many buyers as possible. Look for a high-octane agent who closes a minimum of 35 home transactions per year and has at least four years of real estate experience.
With the right agent, you can get top dollar for your home even when time is short. (from Dave Ramsey website)
