Do a thorough research on the real estate agent you are planning to hire. You want a reliable consultant, a skilled negotiator, and an expert overseer of the transactional details.
Don’t improve the house above the general level of the neighborhood homes. Avoid unusual improvements like adding a second story that don’t fit in with the neighborhood.
Repaint atypically colored walls, put in neutral flooring, and put away collections, family photos, and other mementos. Declutter the whole house, including storage spaces. Clear out unnecessary furniture and put away nonessentials.
Most people won’t even come inside to look at the home if they get a negative impression from the street. Give as much attention to staging the outside of the house as you would with the inside.
Be flexible to get the most potential buyers through the door to lead to offers.
