After you have done the necessary fixing and cleaning work, you can now move on the take pictures of the different areas of your home. These photos need to be taken professionally as you will need to put them up on the internet or newspaper listings. First impression is very important to attract potential buyers to contact you.

Usually these listings are free and you can find quite a number of potential buyers there. Another popular way to market your home is to put up ads on your local newspaper. Call up the agencies and check out their rates first before posting.
Sometimes, you may get frustrated when your home is not sold after some time. This is a very normal process when you are trying to sell your home yourself. Just continue to do targeted marketing to look for the right people to enquire about your home. Sooner or later, you will be able to successfully sell it.
Last but not least, do remember to put up a For Sale board outside your home. You will never know there will be potential buyers among the passer-by. Also put up your phone number for them to enquire about your home.
