The Open House
This is usually not a pleasant experience. The upside is that you usually won't have to be there to act as a guide. The downside is that you might have a series of open houses over a few weeks, with people poking through all areas of your home. And you'll have the constant pressure of keeping your home looking its best.

This service is only available to real estate Sales Representatives. It is a database of all the homes for sale through Sales Representatives. Details about your home will be available to other Sales Representatives searching for homes in your area, in the range of your asking price.
In addition to giving your home the once over with a mop and dust cloth, have your Sales Representative prepare a home feature sheet. This is a one page synopsis of your home that highlights lot size, room dimensions, features and upgrades as well as utility costs and taxes. Prospective buyers will take a sheet and refer to it while viewing your home. Plus, it makes for a great reference sheet when the buyers are comparing properties.
