Determining the right price for your home is one of the most important decisions you'll make in the home sale process.
One of the first things you need to know about your home is what makes it stand out from the rest of the market.
This includes a thourough deep cleaning, maintenance, decluttering, organization, and the eventual staging process.
In the era of the internet, most buyers will make their first impression of your home on a home search website, so professional photographs couldn't be more important.
When selling your house, most buyers will find out about it online either via the MLS (which is the tool that U.S. realtors use to showcase homes for sale) or on some other home search website.
This includes marketing your open house, preparing collateral materials, day of preparations, and how to facilitate your open house.
If you don't immediately become inundated by offers at your open house, which is very rarely happens, it is now time to show your house.
You might have multiple offers right away, or you might wait for a while before one offer even materializes. Whether you have a single offer or many, it is still beneficial to analyze any offers that come in with a critical eye.

Even though you feel like the hard part is over once you accept the offer, there is still much that has to be done during the escrow phase.
