When your house is up for sale, make sure you have easy access to all information a buyer might require. Have a list of work that's been done to the home and the contractors that did the work.

Bidding wars can be good for your pocketbook. If you choose a selling price that is comparable to other properties in the area, you are more likely to attract serious inquiries. If multiple buyers try to outbid each other so that they can get your home, you might end up selling at a much higher price than you originally expected to get.


Supercharge your real estate listing with bonuses and incentives. For example, including appliances in the sale price is very good incentive to buyers. Offering up something special on top of the purchase of the home can be just the way that you need to seal the deal. See what's in fashion and affordable, then your closing deal can include it. This made you more successful.


It is preferable to sell your house prior to having to move. It's just too complicated and too expensive to pay multiple bills and to worry about your new home and a home that's currently on the market. Give yourself enough time to show the house and find the right buyer.
