To find the right price - the sweet spot that will attract the most prospective buyers – one should utilize the help of real estate experts. The best way to approach pricing is to do some research in addition to employing the help of an agent. Search for other homes that are for sale in the same neighborhood and try to find something that is comparable. One should also check prices of comps that recently sold. While sellers may want to set the listing price at a certain level, it is important to factor in market conditions and other homes for sale.
Clear the clutter
When showing a home to prospective buyers, it should be pristine. That means cleaning every room and potentially doing a little redecorating or painting. Most importantly, one should clear all the clutter the home so buyers can see themselves living in the space.
Have an online presence

Be sure to have good photos of the exterior of the home and each room. Having an attractive listing page online can attract potential buyers.
