Selling your property or home is an easy, hassle free process when you enlist the services of a real estate professional to help with everything from listing your property, to holding open houses, to ensuring you receive the best possible price.
Since your real estate professional helps people buy and sell homes on a daily basis, they know tips and tricks to help you through every step of the process, including selecting a reasonable listing price that will help your home sell faster, advertising your home and its features, negotiating the best selling price, and advising you of ways to make a good first impression on potential buyers.
Your real estate professional will be able to suggest ways to rearrange your home contents to better appeal to buyers as well as offer home-staging advice that will ensure your home does not remain on the market long.

Your real estate professional will be able to ensure your home is accurately evaluated before setting a listing price. They will be able to conduct a comparative market analysis, which puts your home up against similar properties that have sold, expired, or have been recently listed for sale in your area. This analysis also takes into consideration the features that are present or not present in your property versus the comparable properties. For instance, a home with a pool will typically sell for more than a comparable home without a pool. As well, a finished basement may also bring in a higher sale price.

When the potential sale of your home rests on a home inspection, you want to ensure you have done everything possible to make sure your home passes the inspection.

Your real estate professional's job is to get you the best price for your home, while also ensuring it does not remain on the market for an extended period of time.
Following are 10 home staging tips that may help you sell your home faster and at a higher price.
Ensuring your home receives maximum exposure is a key part of any home sale.
That's why it pays to sell your home with the help of your real estate professional through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
The MLS provides details of your home to all real estate professionals in the area, and markets the property to a broad range of potential buyers. To further maximize exposure, your real estate professional may recommend you hold an open house as soon as the property goes on the market.
Most open houses for the public are held on a weekend afternoon when potential buyers often have more time to drive through neighborhoods.
Following are three things to keep in mind pending an upcoming open house:
If you have pets, please remove them from the home for the open house, since their presence could be distracting or affect those with allergies.
It's best if you and your family are not present during an open house. If you remain home, prospective buyers may feel compelled to rush their visit to avoid disturbing you. You want them to feel relaxed and take the time to really see the features of your property. Potential buyers also feel uncomfortable commenting on your home in your presence.
Your professional will suggest ways to prepare your home for an open house to make the environment more inviting both inside and out. This may entail rearranging furniture, painting an area, or removing clutter. All of this, of course, will help you prepare for your eventual move as well.
