We were able to sell our condo within three days of listing with our fantastic Realtor's help. Scheduling showings while trying to work around kids' nap schedules is very stressful, but I'm thankful it only lasted for three days. I give a lot of credit to our Realtor for making it happen. He marketed our home like crazy - used every type of social media available to him, with an abundance of beautiful professional photos. He was also the one who walked through our home and pointed out what we needed to change (total cost of sprucing the place up was roughly $150), and we listened to everything he had to say and took it to heart. We wanted to list the home higher than his suggested price, and he listened to us and did just that. We sold for our asking price and couldn't be happier. Oh, and we kept all of our personal photos up. They would have left gaping empty spaces on the walls, so we opted not to touch them. We actually got very positive feedback on that - people said our place felt like a home.

I'm w/ midmodfan - really nice compilation piece to bookmark and share in order to locate lots of other great articles quickly. I will say the photography for MLS after staging has been a hot button issue for me lately - I still cannot get over Professional Real Estate Agents using their camera phone to take photos of a staged listing - it blows my mind! I personally recommend Jim Gross w/ VirtualTourClub@aol.com in the ABQ Metro Area. He is fantastic!
