And yet most homeowners feel disadvantaged and ill-equipped to achieve this goal. Pricing a home is an imperfect science to begin with. Market factors can cause large swings affecting pricing.

Approximately one in five home sellers, or 20%, attempt to sell their home on their own and then only 4% are successful.
Many fail because they have little or no insight into the real estate industry or worse they have the wrong information.

Allowing your pets to roam free in the house while the front door is propped wide open, and people are rushing in and out lugging boxes and furniture just creates a recipe for disaster.
