Presale prep is crucial when selling your own home. You'll want to start by identifying all comparable homes sold in the past six to nine months, taking note of their list prices, sale prices, days on the market, and features such as the number of
bedrooms and baths. Consider contacting a real estate professional for a free market analysis. Agents are often happy to help in the beginning, in the hopes that you’ll give up on selling the house yourself and turn to them instead.
