After, over 15 years, as a Real Estate Licensed Salesperson, in the State of New York, I strongly, believe, the best way, to achieve, the most – desirable/ beneficial results, is, hiring, the finest professional, for your specific needs, goals, and priorities, who will use a professional approach, to getting, your home, SOLD! With, that in mind, this article will attempt to, briefly, consider, examine, review, and discuss, using the mnemonic approach, what this means, and represents, and, why it matters.

Honestly, evaluate, and understand, the house’s strengths, as well as weaknesses, and, what might attract, and/ or, turn – off, a potential buyer! What efforts, will be taken, towards, selling the property? Discuss, the system, to be, used, and whether, the individual, you hire, has the solutions, to timely, challenges! Address, whether, the house, has specific systems, which, might, either, attract, quality, qualified buyers, or, deter, their desires!
2. Options; opportunities; offers/ offering; organized: In most cases, the best – organized, agents, get the best results! Understand, and consider, the options, and alternatives, in terms of marketing, selling, pricing, etc, this house! Does it present, any desirable opportunities, the competition, may not?
