Once you have made the difficult decision to move, your home becomes a house, a piece of real estate, which needs to be sold. Removing the emotion from your home should help you concentrate more objectively on the finer points of selling a house.

Advertising is one way to let the buying public know your house is on the market. If not, can you afford the time it will take to sell your house with only a sign in the yard? Are you willing to stay close to home for days, weeks, maybe months to show your house? Do you possess the necessary legal and financial knowledge to answer buyers’ questions, negotiate a contract, or close a sale?
