Yoda...that little, green, ancient sage.  With so much wisdom gleaned from his centuries of existence, we can all learn a little something.  But there is one enduring truth that Yoda espouses that can help you successfully sell your home.
Do.  Or do not.  There is no try.
Whenever I hear someone say, "I'm trying to sell my house," the hair on the back of my neck stands up and a shiver runs down my spine.
Do.  Or do not.  There is no try.
Selling your property is not rocket science.  The hardest part is to remove your emotions from the process and treat it as the business prospect that it is, handling a sizeable asset of yours.
You may understand the advantages of using a trusted, experience, professional advisor to sell one of your large assets.  Your best route to a sale is to find an advisor, a Realtor, who will always look out for your best interests, and who will help you make good decisions.  Someone who will be honest with you, tell it to you like it is, rather than tell you what they think you want to hear.  Only with the correct and factual information (whether you like it or not), can you be enabled make the right decisions .
You will be guided through the complicated process of properly staging your home for sale, making sure you are not spending money on the things that will not give you a return on your investment.  You may be advised to get a short term storage room to "clear the clutter" so buyers can visualize their own furnishings in your property.
Your Realtor will assist you in the proper positioning of your home in the marketplace, assuring that it sells quickly and doesn't linger on the market.  Ask for your Realtor’s Marketing Plan and check off what is done as the process moves forward.  This is the only way to assure that you are receiving the maximum amount that the market will bear.
Your Realtor will explain the pros and cons of the offers you receive and explain what the process forward is so that your property becomes cleared to close.
While your Realtor brings you their knowledge and experience from selling homes day in and day out, YOU make the ultimate decisions.  You can accept their experienced advice or not.  Whether you decide to keep the 1970's wallpaper because you believe that it's coming back in style or to remove it and paint a neutral color, that is ultimately up to you.  While your agent may show you the data that says your home should sell at a certain price, if you decide to overprice it because you "need some room to negotiate," the decision is yours.
Think of your Realtor as your own personal Yoda.  And always remember that when it comes to selling your home,

Do.  Or do not.  There is no try.
