As a seller trying to sell your home, the most important points to selling your home quickly and for the best price are as follows:

Don't Over Price --Every seller thinks their home is worth more than their neighbor's but when pricing, keep it within neighborhood values. An overpriced home tends to sit on the market, especially if it is the most expensive in the community where recent sales do not support the list price.

Pay Attention to Curb Appeal--Your home could look great on the inside but if the outside is something less to be desired, then you won't get anyone through the front door.  The exterior is your home's first impression, so make sure it makes a good one.
Declutter--Intellectually we all know that the way we live in a home is different from a how a home is staged but there is a reason why staging a home helps sell a home 73% faster on average.  Declutter as much as possible if you can put some furniture in storage to give rooms a more spacious feel.
Keep it Neutral -- Simple is best! A neutral color pallette will appeal to the largest percentage of home buyers and a fresh coat of paint is like a breath of fresh air and can make a home feel like a new place.
