Make sure your house in good condition!
There are probably many other sellers who are willing to sell their house at the lowest price possible, for a quick sale.
To have an upper hand, it’s best you leave the house in good condition at all times. You can have a termite and home inspection prior to listing and have repairs done in advance. Imagine how interested the buyers will be when they find out that there’s little or no repair to be done. This leaves a good impression with buyers.
