- 1. Prepare your home for sale completely prior to placing a "FOR SALE" sign in the yard. Prepare your home as if the most important person you know is going to view your home. Your first showing is going to be to that MOST important person!
- 2. Take the very best photos possible of your home for online viewing. This is so important because virtually everybody is going online and routinely making decisions on what house to look at based on a photo. Absolutely, do not allow dark photos, fuzzy photos, or messy photos to go online.
- 3. Price your home on day one at the price you will take. Testing the market at a higher price is a no win strategy. If a house is overpriced, buyers will look at houses that they think are not overpriced. Allowing wiggle room for negotiation is another no win strategy. Buyers are comparing your house to the competition. Typically, the most showings occur in the first 2-3 weeks of being on the market. If your house is showcased for showing, has great online photos and is market priced, your home will sell quicker than the competition.
