Price Your Home Well. Sellers often tell me “Let’s start higher, because buyers always try to make lower offer”. True and not true. Educated buyers or buyer who have been looking for a while will know if price is fair. If you list your home at fair market value or even below market value, chances are that you are going to have “bidding war on your home” with possibility of getting offers above listing price. If you list your property too high, nobody will be looking at your home and by the time you finally lower your price, it will be on the market so long that it is going to feel “stale” to some buyers. And some are going to feel suspicious :” Is there a reason why this home has been on the market for so long? Is there a problem?”. And that is when you are going to get lower offers. So START with right price

Declutter and depersonalize. One of the best ways to stage your home for someone else to imagine living there is to get rid of your personal stuff.
Paint walls in neutral tones. Real estate experts believe certain paint colors inspire buyers to put in an offer, and often suggest that sellers repaint their home in these hues to create a blank canvas for optimal staging.
Turn on all the lights. If you don’t have enough light, things can look drab and dreary, especially if you have showings on a gray day.
Add mirrors. Mirrors make rooms look larger.
Keep furniture proportional to the room. Strategically placing a minimal amount of furniture in a small space works better than over crowding it with too much furniture.
Minimize art and decorations.
Add pops of color. Now that you’ve painted the walls a pleasure neutral hue, think about adding in pops of color.
Clean out and organize closets.Clear off countertops. Get rid of all clutter in bathrooms and kitchens except for the bare necessities that “read” bathroom (soap dish and a hand towel) or kitchen (coffee machine).
