Today's Best Strategy to Get It SOLD!

—Price it right. Buyers have access to lots of data, and they'll know if your house is too expensive.

—Offer to pay some of the buyer's closing costs.

—Maximize exposure. Saturate the Internet and all forms of social media with your listing.

—Use great photos, not good ones. Make sure your house makes a great first impression.

—Make it sing. Listing information must be complete and well-written.

—Curb appeal matters. Spend a little money on flowers, new plants and fresh paint.

—Inside, your house should look fresh
, so make sure the paint, carpeting, light fixtures and appliances are updated and clean.

—De-clutter. Eliminate one-third to two-thirds of your stuff; hire a stager.

—Network. Sales come together because brains understand homes better than computers.

—Be patient. Statistics say that it takes 21 showings, not including open-house traffic, to sell a house.
