Show-worthy condition means it is professional-grade clean, de-cluttered and depersonalized. So when it comes to how to sell my home fast—clean and organized is as important as pricing it well.

Don’t Be Afraid—or Over-Confident—of a Quick Sale
Many homeowners want a quick sale, but when a quick offer comes along they become over-confident that a better offer will quickly come in (as the first offers aren’t often at full list price). These quick offers however can be solid offers—and they may be the only one to come along quickly. So, don’t be afraid—or over-confident—of a quick offer, but do consider it carefully.
