    In a declining Real Estate Market where supply outstrips demand, a person can generally sell a house faster by lowering the price. But there are other ways to enhance a home's attractiveness besides lowering the asking price. If you're looking to sell your home in a cooling real estate market, read on for some tips on how to generate interest and get the best price possible.
    1-Differentiate From the Neighbors
    2-Clean the Clutter
    3-Sweeten the Deal
    4-Improve Curb Appeal
    5-Get Your Home in "Move In" Condition
    6-Pricing It Right
    Selling a home in a down market requires a little extra work. Do everything you can to get the home in excellent shape and be prepared to make some small concessions at closing. These tips, coupled with an attractive price, will increase the odds of getting your home sold.

    I am thinking that these tips can also apply in a market with low inventory, especially if you want to get the best price for your home.

    These are some very interesting tips here if looking to sell your property and they make perfect sense when you sit back and look at the situation in more detail. You do need to make your property attractive, you do need to make your property stand out from the rest and if it takes a sweetener of some kind to close the deal, how desperate are you for the cash?

    Can this be a considered a tips too?

    Audit your agent’s online marketing. 92% of homebuyers start their house hunt online, and they will never even get in the car to come see your home if the online listings aren’t compelling.

    Post a video love letter about your home on YouTube. Get a $125 FlipCam and walk through your home AND your neighborhood, telling prospective buyers about the best bits – what your family loved about the house, your favorite bakery or coffee shop that you frequented on Saturday mornings, etc.

    Let your neighbors choose their neighbors. If you belong to neighborhood online message boards or email lists, send a link to your home’s online listing to your neighbors.

    Facebook your home’s listing. Facebook is the great connector of people these days.

    Leave some good stuff behind. We’ve all heard about closing cost credits, but those are almost so common now that buyers expect them – they don’t really distinguish your house from any of the other homes on the market anymore.

    Beat the competition with condition. In many markets, much of the competition is low-priced foreclosures and short sales.

    Some great tips here. The main thing is to make your home desirable. As simple as it may sound some people dont put the effort into making the home look 'move-in' ready and expect to receive great offers. People dont want to buy a house and have to invest more money and time into making it look great.

    I think you have hit the nail on the head - there are basic types of sellers which are investors and homeowners.

    One other thing which you can do is research similar properties in your area. Is your property priced competitively? Do other properties look more attractive from a price position?

    The simple fact is that the more people who are aware that your property is for sale the more chance of a little bit of competition which can only help with the end price.

    Do you think it is sensible to incentivise your real estate agent? Maybe offer them a higher commission if they achieve a particular sale price?

    In order to attract attention and to make your home more memorable, consider custom designs or additions, such as landscaping, high-grade windows or a new roof. This can help improve the home’s aesthetics, while potentially adding value to the home.

    If you are planning to sell your home than make sure your home is ready to lure in onlookers with these tips:
    * Get your home in “Move In” condition such as power wash siding and walkways, plant blooming flowers and fresh greenery, wash front windows and all necessary repairs
    * Repaint or stain the porch floor as needed
    * Set the price right.
    * Even if you hire a real estate agent, you should let as many people as possible know that your house is for sale.

    Selling houses now a days are not difficult as too many real estate agents are there to help. But some fake agents are also there which puts questions on our mind that which real estate agents we should really trust. Below I have mentioned some tips while selling your house:

    1. Put advertisement on popular sites like craiglist, worldfreeads etc where you will found many buyers online.

    2. Stage the exterior of your home: Stage the exterior with fresh paint, and decorate your house with good interior designing. Buyers often look for this and it is key point in selling your house at good price.

    3. Listen to your agent: If you find an experienced real estate agent to list your home, who has a successful track record of selling homes in your area, listen to their recommendations. Find an agent you trust and follow their advice as often as you can.

    4. Get real about pricing: Today’s buyers are very educated about the comparable sales in the area, which heavily influence the fair market value of your home. So you must ask your agent that the price at which you are selling must not larger than actual or reasonable price.

    5.Access is essential: Homes that don’t get shown don’t get sold. So make sure that your house is accessible for buyers most of the time. Whenever they come for inspection you are ready or your agents are ready to welcome them.

    But this would lead to more costs and, consequently, the prices will go up..

    If you are in the process of putting your house on the market without the aid of a realtor, you would need some home staging techniques to boost your deal against your competitors. :)
