A home that is in GREAT shape will sell quicker for a higher dollar amount than a house that has a few problems. So...
Your agent shouls be brutally honest about the things that you need to get done when it comes to selling your house. I use the words house and home with a distinct intent. i know that your home has some very personal memories that will never go away.

Here's a quick home selling tip that's very important:
