Keep in mind these tips:  One culprit for many a mispriced home are online tools, like Zillow’s “Zestimate,” that prescribe an estimated market value based on local data. The estimate is often wildly inaccurate. In many markets, much of the competition is low-priced foreclosures and short sales. As an individual homeowner, the way you can compete is on condition. Present your home in TOP condition.

The best way to update a property is to paint it. It’s a job that many sellers can do themselves.

Here are six suggestions for making the work go quickly.

Montebello’s Living Spaces
  1. Move the furniture. Get as much furniture as possible out of the way, and then cover what’s left with plastic drop cloths held in place with masking tape.
  2. Buy good paint. Top-quality latex interior paint will hide what’s underneath and make the job go faster.
  3. Tape the edges. Taping the edges with painters tape will speed up the job and make the results more professional.
  4. Work top down. Paint the ceiling first, then the walls, then the windows and trim and finally the baseboards. This will cut down on time spent repairing drips and splatter marks.
  5. Cut in the corners. Applying a three-inch band of paint around the edges will allow you to fill in the middle with a paint roller.
  6. Apply paint generously. Trying to stretch the paint won’t save sellers any money if they have to repaint.
