If you are planning on selling your Highland Park IL home in 2011 call me for a comparative market evaluation of your residence. Some important tips to keep in mind: 1. List to sell – your house will need to shine within its price bracket. 2. List with a real estate agent who presents you with a marketing plan- know what kind of marketing and exposure your home will receive. 3. De-clutter – get rid of things that you do not plan on taking with you – donate, have a garage sale or sell on eBay.
