The three prong approach for getting your home sold fast and for top dollar is proper pricing, as discussed above, buyer incentives and agent incentives. Yes, INCENTIVES MATTER!
For buyers, get creative...you can offer anything from a home warranty and closing costs to a Cadillac or antique item. Anything that can help the buyer see more value in YOUR home over others will help pull top dollar.
For agents, the most important thing is to let them know that you are willing to cooperate with them and you will need to do it in writing.
