Selling your home is one of those big life events. Because most people don't sell a home very often, some good solid advice in the beginning can help avoid making costly errors in judgement.
So where should you go for the best advice? A real estate professional. Find someone that you can trust, invite them to your home, share your plans with them, and get all your questions answered. Get an agent involved before you start any preparation. A good agent's guidance will go a long way to save you time, money and aggravation.
