Sell a Home, Not a House
When you list your home it becomes a House. What makes a home is what you put into it. When you list your house you want that house to appeal to buyers as a home. Remember that what you want in your next home is what buyers who are looking want.
Prepare your house to be a buyers dream home. Patch any holes, paint, and look for wear and tear. If your home shows great pride then buyers will feel confident the home was well cared for and will be a great home for them. Making some touch ups or upgrading can give you more equity in your pocket.

Timing It RightWhen you are selling your home and buying a new one at the same time, the ability to juggle the responsibilities of both can protect you from headaches. Avoid having to handle two giant chores at once by starting early. Make a list of whom you need to notify about your change of address, including utility companies and credit card companies. Start packing the knick-knacks and off-season items you won’t be needing before the move. If you can start doing repairs around the home as early as possible -- even a full year prior to the sale of your home -- you will be able to avoid a huge bill right before the sale.
Lighten The LoadAs you begin packing to move to your new home, the realization will probably hit you like a ton of bricks: You have a ton of stuff. Rather than packing it all and lugging it to your new house just to stuff it into the garage and closets, lighten your load and make your move easier. A garage sale is a great way to unload lots of your little-used items and make a little extra cash to spend on decorating your new home. You can also sell some of your rarer possessions on auction sites such as Ebay. You may get a pretty penny for old toys and books which might have sold for a lesser price at your garage sale. Also consider donating furniture and clothing to charity. You’ll be doing something good for yourself and for others.
