#15: Price it to Sell, Not to SitDon't alienate buyers by pricing your home too high. "You run the risk of scaring off buyers and having that home sit on the market for far too long and becoming stale," notes real estate expert Bethany Souza.
Shannon Freeman adds, "You want to have a very small gap between the listed price and the sales price. That's your goal. So when you get ready to price your house, it should be where you think it's going to sell."
