Three factors to consider when selling your home are Condition, Price & Location. Realtors take into consideration all three of these factors when determining the right list price for a property they list.
Neither the home owner nor the list agent has much influence over the factor of location. Price and condition are factors that are extremely important and that homeowners do have control over.
Listen to your agent when it comes time to pricing your home. Look at the "comps" brought to you and pay attention to the facts of the market analysis. Correct pricing is invalueable as it determines your buyer audience. Homes priced correctly will draw in the right buyer for your home.
When thinking of selling your home put your properties "best foot forward" so to speak by decluttering and cleaning. This is a sellers opportunity to directly influence how quickly and where in the price range determined by your market analysis your home will sell. A home that is immaculate, smells fresh, is free from clutter and vacuumed will always appeal more than a home that looks like a bomb went off, that reeks of wet dog or cat box & has dishes piled up in the sink and dust and dirt every where.
