4. Negotiate listing realtor's commission and selling realtor's commission. If commission is too low, realtors will spend less time promoting your house. If you are in a hurry, or if you want better service, you are better off increasing commission by $500 rather than reducing your price by $5,000.
5. Develop a features and benefits checklist for realtors. They see so many houses that after a while they all look alike. A written summary of strong points of your house helps realtor justify a higher price when presenting to buyer.
6. Develop a lifestyle oriented features list of your house and surrounding area. A pictorial collage of two or three pages will help increase desirability (and higher value) of your home.
7. Just before a showing make sure everything is well dusted, all lights are on and windows are open, if weather permits. Use a neutral deodorizer just before buyers arrive. Lighting a candle is very effective in eliminating odors.
