Pricing your home is the number one key. Even if you have had your home appraised in the past year we suggest you have it appraised again just before listing it on the market. Set your price according to the appraisal and the comps in your area. Over pricing your home will turn potential buyers away immediately.

Condition of your home. Stop and take a good look at the current condition of your home. Ask someone with an objective view to take a look at your home and give you an honest list of what they found to be hindrances. Make the effort prior to listing your home to address each issue raised.

Make your home "stand out" in the crowd! Curb appeal is a definite. A potential buyer will drive past your home even if the price is right if they get a bad first impression from the curb. Clean up the yards and prune your trees and shrubs. Plant bright colorful flowers and put out some garden solar lights. Curb appeal is so important as you want the buyers to want to come inside as soon as they drive up to the curb!

Show your home to appeal to the "masses". This will include decluttering the entire house, closets and cupboards as well. Remove everything off of your kitchen and bath countertops. If you are going to do some home improvement projects to update your home put your money into the kitchen and the baths. You will regain your investment and updated kitchens and baths sell homes. Update built in light fixtures and carpeting if necessary.

Staging a home for the market will most certainly guarantee you a quicker sell. A home that is "staged" stands out amongst all others. Stat's prove across the country that a properly staged home will sell at the asking price and sometimes above. If you have your home appraised after all repairs, updates and staging is completed you may well get a higher appraisal value on the home.

If you are looking to "stage" your home on your own we suggest that you get professional advise from a professional home stager so that you are certain that your home is show ready. We at Home Stages Designs offer many Home Staging ebooks to assist the do-it-yourselfers out there. When following the lead of a professional you can rest assured that your home is going to sell quicker than all others that are not show ready. Now days, potential buyers expect to purchase homes that are ready to move into and that they do not have to plunk alot of money into at the onset of the purchase. These are the buyers that will give you your asking price without hesitation.
