A few more things: make sure the house smells good. I know that seems stupid, but we all get so used to our own houses that it would be good if someone you know with a great sense of smell would come over and tell you if they notice anything icky. A nice aroma is from cinnamon or apple candles, burn them for a while, then put them out before leaving. If you have older switch plates, and outlet covers a nice touch is to get the cheap, matte contractor packs and replace them all. It doesn't cost much, but add a finishing touch to the place. Make sure all appliances are clean. No cobwebs anywhere. If you have minor flaws that are easily fixed, then buyers think you don't take care of the big things either. The notebook you have at the house should have items like the age of the roof, and appliances, and any service records, such as when the furnace was serviced. Make sure you note any easements, or rights of way, and anything that is a positive feature, such as road frontage, or availability of utilities, and the location of the schools your kids go to. If there are any positives such as, a great school district, or a magnet school that's highly rated, or if there is a great university or other feature make sure you mention it. Don't say 'quick possession possible' unless you mean it. Once you have a nice, printable listing for the house make some and give it all of the neighbors. You never know who has a friend or relative that wants to relocate, and if there is a good possibility nearby they might want to consider your place. Don't mention you already own another place, because people think that makes you 'motivated' and are willing to drop the price a lot. If anyone asks say you are moving elsewhere, but still shopping-it's not a lie, I'm always looking at places just for fun, and it's not good to let potential buyers think you are eager to sell. Remember that people want turnkey these days, and the closer you can get to that the better.
