2. Select a realtor who is willing to learn why your house is worth more than competition. Interview several realtors until it becomes obvious who knows their stuff and who doesn't. Since a house is usually biggest investment in most people's lives, there could be some intense moments in negotiation process. Be sure you feel comfortable with realtor as a person.
3. Set a starting price and lowest price you will accept. If you have lots of time to sell your house, you can start price slightly higher than market value. If your start price is too high, your house won't sell, or bank won't finance it. If you reduce listing price later, other realtors will think there is something wrong with your house and will only bring bargain hunters. A realistic price is best place to start.
