You still need to do the preliminary sales work, no matter how you list. Declutter, everything clean, replace all burned out bulbs, get the cobwebs off the light fixtures (you can tell I have spiders where I live, and cobwebs are a not so lovely surprise regularly), change the furnace filter, and have extras next to the furnace (you want people to know you regularly do the little things, which to many people means you do the big ones also). If you have any faucets that drip, or anything like that, then get it done before listing. Get rid of extra stuff, so you don’t have to work around it, or move it. Take out of season clothes and pack or put in space bags, or just get out of the way, so closets don’t look crowded. Now is a good time to go through clothes and shoes, and give away what you don’t use, or need. I have all of my clothes on the skinny, felt covered hangers (I get the triangle ones, with a bottom bar, they’re stronger than the shirt ones), so everything hangs well, saves space, and makes everything look more organized. You want to look like the fussy person, who keeps everything neat and in good working order, because these days people want turnkey, or else a great price. If you have area rugs or floor mats inside the door, make sure they look good, and not tired. If you have animals, plan how you’ll keep them safe during showings. If you put a sale sign near the gate or on the lawn, get the type that has a holder for flyers, and with the phone number for appointments. However, don’t think someone just driving by isn’t a real potential buyer, because that might be the local person that will buy your place, because they have admired it before, and think they’d like to live there. Depersonalize, and take down personal pictures and mementos, so buyers can picture living there. Safely store any financial items (especially statements and spare checks), prescription drugs, and anything that’s easily portable and valuable. I know it sounds awful, but I’ve known people who lost silver picture frames with their wedding picture, prescription, and regular medicine, and small, portable keepsakes to thieves masquerading as buyers. State in the description if quick possession is possible, and if you say it, then mean it (don’t ask about my friends’ experience with this one-houses advertised as ‘quick possession’ and the house was a full of junk from the owner’s relatives that were still living there, and had no intention of moving). There are lots of MLS and realtor.com listing services for flat fee, so you might google some and contact them for their rates, and where they advertise. Farm & Land does listings for rural properties, so see what they charge also. Tell everyone you know that your place is for sale, especially your neighbors, because you never know when someone might know a buyer, and locals are a great source of potential buyers.
Remember there was someone on here a while ago that advertised their place on Craigslist, and sold very quickly. Decide what your absolute bottom price is minus sales cost, and negotiate with everyone, unless their price is ridiculously low. Many people watch HGTV and other real estate shows, and think you can get any property for a song, and don’t realize that it’s just tv, and not reality. Don’t forget that just because you have farm and horse property, that your buyer might be someone who is a car collector, llama farmer, or wants to have a huge dog kennel, or might not even have animals, and they’re buyers also.
