Although you have no control over the location of your home, location is one of the first and most important factors on a buyer’s mind. Location also has a huge impact on determining value.
Setting the right price is imperative and can accurately be determined only by a well researched market evaluation. As a home seller, you should get a detailed written or computerized market evaluation, which compares your home to similar properties that have recently sold, and those which are currently on the market.
A clean and well maintained home always has the competitive edge over all other homes on the market. The better the condition the more likely it is to sell more quickly and at a higher price. A well staged home always enhances its appeal. Click here to view our Tips On How To Sell Your Home Faster.

Broker vs. Agent (Realtor)
A good real estate agent or broker should be able to advise you on market conditions, pricing and staging recommendations, contracting, financing, title work, appraising and closing activities. Just as you insist on an experienced well-prepared doctor to treat your family, you’ll certainly want an experienced broker with a proven track record, who does her homework representing you in the sale of your home, too. This is the reason so many people choose Kim Kahan.
The biggest difference between a real estate agent and a real estate Broker is experience. A Broker must complete additional course work, be an actively licensed real estate agent for at least two years, and must pass a more detailed exam- a Broker licensing exam. You can always check whether a particular agent or broker is licensed in good standing by checking with your state's real estate licensing board too.
