SO, you're ready to sell. You've interviewed agents, your head is spinning after all the number crunching, power point presenting, jargon throwing has culminated and you still have no idea what a good Agent should be doing to sell your home, for the most money in the least amount of time.

Pricing right from the onset is optimal. Placing the home listing information in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service), calling other local Real Estate Agents and client databases, holding open houses, print and online advertising are what most agents do to sell.

But what else? What else could be done so you, Mr. & Mrs. Seller, can move on to your new home, job, city, spouse etc?

Here are some ideas as outlined by renowned New York Real Estate Mogul Barbara Corcoran in a recent interview on NBC's Today Show:

* Don't be hasty about price reductions. PRICE REDUCTIONS ARE NOT ALWAYS THE ANSWER AND SHOULD BE CAREFULLY CONSIDERED BEFORE PUTTING THE HOME ON THE MARKET.Take care to price right from the beginning and if reductions are in order, make noticeable price slashes to create a buzz or sense of urgency amongst buyers.

* Ebay is a viable selling tool. For a fee you can market and possibly sell your home. This tactic could be used in conjunction with the Realtors other marketing efforts.

* Use virtual tours and personal videos and post on YouTube and intergrate into other websites. This is a great way to show potential buyers why your home is special and different from the competition.

Remember, finding ways to get buyers into your home before they visit the competition is key. A good Real Estate Agent is creative, willing to take risks and put the time and energy that is necessary to sell your home.

Just some things to ponder on. Remember, your comments, inquiries or request for more information are always welcome. Thanks for visiting!
