It is very important to make a great first impression the better it is the better price you can get when it comes time to close the sale. No matter how good the inside of a property is, a buyer will have already judged it by the outside so keep the yard mowed and trimmed. Curb appeal is important; you can use inexpensive shrubs and brightly colored flowers to make a difference. You can buy a flat of flowers and plant them along the walks and under the shrubs. Choosing the right agent to list your property is important. Taking time to seek out a top real estate agent in your area and then setting up interviews with them is equally important.

Prepare your home for the market and the microscope that buyers will be placing it under. Pre-Sale home inspections have become increasingly popular over the past few years in response to these economic times. Better to know up front what a buyer will be asking for than after negotiations have begun. Make repairs as necessary in order to allow for a smooth transaction.

However, not everyone is tech-savvy and there are a lot of people who still take the approach of putting up an ad in the local newspapers. So, look for real estate government in the local newspapers. In fact, there are some newspapers that are dedicated to just that i.e. real estate government. You could even go ahead and put up a ‘wanted’ ad in these newspapers. Sometimes, looking up for real estate government in old newspapers (like 1-2 months old) can help you get a good deal (in case the property owner has not been able to sale the property and has become a bit more ‘motivated’ to sell it).
