In these days of hard economic times, we hear mostly stories of "gloom and doom."  We've all seen that home down the street that simply isn't selling, despite months and months on the market.  However, chances are that it's overpriced for today's market

It's generally pretty easy to find out the price of homes for sale on the Internet.  Once you've found out the price for that home, ask yourself these questions:

1) If you were a buyer, would you pay asking price?

2) Does the home have enough curb appeal to even make you stop and look further?

If the home has sat on the market with no activity for more than 30 days, changes are the answer to all three questions is a resounding "NO"!

Homes are selling, albeit at a lower price than in years past.  But when priced properly and accompanied by home staging, homes can still sell within 10-30 days.

If you've looked into the real estate market lately, chances are you've probably heard of home staging, one of the hottest trends in real estate.  Actually, home staging is not a new concept, but it's really taken off in the last five years because it not only helps sell your home more quickly, but often for a higher price.  In a 2004 survey of Realtors, almost two-thirds of Realtors estimated that a staged home kept in show-to-sell condition sold for a price that was between 10% and 20% higher than a home that was not staged.
