The single most important factor in getting a home sold in a timely manner is pricing. By getting the price right the FIRST time, and not having to chase the market, the home is sold for optimum return to the seller. Once the price is right, then you have to get the word out. The most effective strategy, other than methods already described above is the direct mail to surrounding homes. Currently we send out just listed cards to closest 100 address to each property listed. The most important factor for the home itself is the curb appeal. Buyers are going online to picture and the drive by before ever calling Realtor.
