7. Take Great Photos
How many times have you looked at listings and seen horrible photos? The pet wandering in the room, dishes in the sink, Cousin Ted smoking on the patio?

8. Get Ready to Show Your Home
Most important – set up clear showing instructions with your listing agent. You still live there, which means you need to create a system that works for your family. We work from our home as well as teach our children, so we needed to block out hours from showings to accommodate our lives. We also requested that all showings call at least an hour before arrival.
Setting up realistic boundaries can help make the showings less hectic, and you a much happier seller!
