7 ways to sell a not-so-perfect house

 
 

Staging

If you can afford to spend a little more money, hire a home stager.

Linnette Edwards, an associate-broker at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate in Piedmont, Calif., says staging "can go a long way" -- if it's done properly.

"Buyers' eyes go to some of the newness and they don't notice the older nuances," she says. "Don't go cheap, though, because no one likes to see bad staging. It becomes a funny talking point."

Curb appeal counts, too.

"Picking appropriate ground cover and plants and painting the front door is so important," Edwards says. "That initial impression really helps."
