The real estate market has been depressed in most areas of the country for the last few years. Listing your home for sale in today's market requires you to review how much comparable homes in your area are selling for and make adjustments based on amenities or condition. Some tips are provided below to help you with selling your home.

When looking to sell your home, always make sure the first impression is a great one. Cut back shrubbery and mow the grass regularly. Re-paint old trim around doors and windows and replace or re-paint shutters if necessary. A new front door can also do so much to give your home a fresh, updated appearance.

Although, it is good to have an enticing description regarding your home, it is important that it is not overly exaggerated. You do want to attract a potential buyer, but you also do not want them leaving your home completely disappointed because they thought the description was significantly better than your actual home.

Be more empathetic with the people you are trying to sell your home to. When showing the house to potential buyers, make it look as homey and inviting as you can. Though it might sound a bit corny, you can even offer baked goods like freshly baked cookies. This can seem inviting and make the process less intimidating for everyone.

Everyone knows that baking cookies to give the house you are selling a nice homey feel is a good idea. If you don't bake cookies, try to avoid using air fresheners that are very strong so that potential buyers do not think you are trying to cover something up. Don't overwhelm buyers with a heavy floral scent. Keep your touch light.

If the reason you are selling your home is because you have outgrown your current home, you might want to consider renting a storage unit. Having your rooms and your closets full can scare a potential buyer away. It could make the buyer feel like they could be in your shoes a couple of years from now.

When selling your real estate property, be sure to check out what comparable properties in your area sold for. By doing this, you can ascertain what the best price is to list your property for. In addition, it will give you a sense of whether sellers in the area received more or less than their asking price.

Clean your home thoroughly before showing any potential buyers around. Unclean windows, kitchen counters covered in dirty dishes, soiled carpets, stained curtains, floors covered in filthy washing, piles of old newspapers, smelly toilets, spider's cobwebs in room corners and dusty furniture can make your home very unappealing and difficult to sell.

Keep pets out of sight when prospective buyers arrive. Not everyone is an animal lover and many people are allergic to dogs, cats and other pets. By making your home a pet free zone during each viewing, you increase the chance of potential buyers finding your home appealing and making an offer on it.

If you are trying to sell a vacant home, consider hiring a professional staging company. This type of company will come in and make your vacant house look like a lived in home, attracting more potential buyers. Though there is cost involved in staging, you might find the expense to be worthwhile if it significantly reduces your days on market.

Once you have reviewed the tips above, you should be ready to consult a realtor and look at market prices in your area. Keep in mind the homes that appear to be the best deal are generally the ones that get the most walk thrus and even offers, so make sure your home appears to be a great value.
