1. Find the right listing agent.
Finding the right listing agent to sell your home can be a process within itself. Take the time to do your research and find out about a potential agent’s experience, references, and qualifications.

3. Work together to create your pricing strategy based on your listing agent’s CMA.
TIP: Don't be afraid to ask your listing agent questions about their CMA and why they chose that listing price. They will be happy to walk you through it.
4. Review your home’s listing description for specific highlights.
Even though your listing agent will have the expertise to market what makes your home unique based on what buyers are looking for, they will not have the same experience you do from living in your home. Take the time to review all the wonderful features your home has with your listing agent.
