Get a Realtor who invests in good marketing.
Most homebuyers today use the Internet to conduct a good part of their home search, and when searching through listing portals the first thing they will see are photos. Most buyers will casually browse through all of these photos until they find something that really catches their attention. Also, video marketing is becoming more and more effective at showcasing properties. Having a Realtor that consistently invests in quality marketing for their listings is essential for getting attention to the home you’re selling.

Pick the right price.
Pricing your home accurately is where the expertise of your agent will really come in handy, as there are many factors to consider. Choosing a fair price is a crucial step in the home selling process and will either attract or deter potential buyers.
