5 Things you need to know before selling your Home

You are planning on selling probably your single biggest asset and perhaps moving up or moving into something manageable, either way, you want to get the most for your house. 

1. First of all you need to know what is your house worth. 
2. Declutter - I am sure you have lots that you have accumulated over the years that you can get rid off. Perhaps a garage sale
3. A REALTOR - Do yourself a favour and choose a REALTOR who does it, perhaps full time, for a living. Guaranteed REALTORs sell more houses than you ever will and the commission is worth it. For every $1000 that a REALTOR will get extra for your house, you get to keep $950 and the REALTOR only takes $50. Even that is split in to two (for the listing and the selling REALTOR). 
4. Depersonalize your home - It is simple to do. It should look like a hotel room.
5. Motivation - Do you really need to sell or want to sell? If yes, then do everything accordingly including pricing it at the optimum price.
