There are a few things that you have to keep in mind about selling your home. While it may be tempting to just rush through the process so that it can be over with, you need to take your time and make sure all bases are covered to assure a smooth sale.
Staging your home for sale, especially if it is vacant, is a great way to get a higher asking price and to generate more interest in your home. Staging is when you have someone come in and arrange furniture, paint walls, and place accents that give your home a broad appeal and make it look nicer than it really is.
When you are selling your home and working on the outside to add nice curb appeal take a look at your front door. A nice front door can go a long way in making the outside of your house look nice. Choose a bright or contrasting color so that it doesn’t match your house. Red looks good with green hues and blue goes well with orange hues.
If you’re looking to improve your house to improve its value and increase your chances of selling it, start with the floors. If you have linoleum in your kitchen, hallway, bathroom, wherever, get rid of it. Instead, replace it with tile. It looks a lot better, and will increase your chances of selling your house.

Knowing a bit about the features of a property can help know how much to sell or offer for a home for. Things like swimming pools, two-car garages, single car detached garages or attached garages can make a difference in the value of the home. They can either increase or decrease the value of the property depending on where the home is.
When staging a home to show to a potential buyer, don’t neglect the bathroom. A clean, white shower curtain will make a bathroom feel less grungy and more like the sanitary space it should be. Under no circumstances should you show a home with the old owner’s shower curtain still in place.
If your house has been stuck on the market for a while, try some arrangements to speed things up. Concentrate on the kitchen, bath and bedroom triangle to attract buyers with a feeling of comfort in these areas. Good smells in the kitchen, a spa feeling in the bath and a bedroom free of computers and TV are all good ways to make your buyer feel an attraction to your home.
