  1. Follow your agent's advice! A good listing agent will assist you with pricing, marketing, negotiating and guiding you through the contract and closing process. If you don't trust an agent, don't hire them!
  2. Don't neglect important home repairs before you go to list your home. Stay up-to-date with your home maintenance and you won't have a long to-do list when you sell your home.
  3. Don't settle for less than professional photography and a virtual tour. Photos are your home's first impression online and you want to make sure that impression is a good one!
  4. When in doubt, start with a lower asking price. Multiple offers could push your final price up! Starting your price out too high could mean your home sits on the market.
  5. Don't be restrictive on showing times. Be open to the greatest number of potential buyers that you can!
  6. Keep your home tidy for showings.
  7. Fresh carpet and paint make a huge difference! Don't underestimate their power!
  8. Don't be present for showings. Leave your home when a showing is scheduled.
  9. Don't let pets spoil your showings either! Take them out for a walk during showings.
  10. Don't ever look at an offer with a closed mind. As a seller in this market you are negotiating from a place of power, use that to your advantage.
