Tip 2: Choose the right agent

Everyone knows that a good real estate agent will improve the chance to sell a house faster. However, when coming to the selection process, not everyone knows how to choose the right one. For helping you find the right real estate agent, we list some ideas that we have been using while we are researching a good agent. 


The right agent should be honest and experienced, also with an extended networking and marketing channels to spread out messages effectively.  

Step one: Start from the pool of agents who know your community well;
Step two: Check their listing history to see their sale records; 
Step three: Visit their open home would be an excellent chance to see their real actions. 
Step four: Ensure you are comfortable with the agent and vice-versa as both of you can have an open and honest conversation.
Step five: See if the agent can answer your question unbiased. 

Step six: Read the Agreement carefully, make sure there is no tricky clause. 


The agent should also provide an appraisal with a detailed report of the market in your area and surrounding areas. The complete report should include information like school, transportation, demographics and other statistics in your property area.


Avoid choosing an agent based solely on their commission rate.

Tip 3: Pricing your house right

Don't overprice your listing. Most people appear to value their own house above the market value. If you prefer a fast sale, you need to be practical when you set the bottom line of your price. Compare with other houses in your area and similar houses in the surrounding area.  Be prepared to lower your expectations if you genuinely want an instant sale. Or giving a price range to learn the market through the potential buyers' response. Besides, the flexible price can attract more people to open home, and possibly get the final sale.


Set a time for reducing the price. Most of the time, property owners unwilling to lower the price. Then it takes months to make a sale. Highlight a date on the calendar to change your price if you haven't gotten an offer, and this will help in taking out your emotion from the frustrating situation and assist you to step forward.

Beautiful real estate photography is essential when selling your home. The internet is the first place to go for most people who are looking to buy a house. The photos you put online is the key to have potential buyers come to the open home inspection. Publishing unprofessional images will turn potential buyers away. Property photos should be taken with a good quality camera with wide angle lenses, not a mobile phone.
