Step 1 - Decide that selling your home is the correct move for you.  This decision includes researching your financial situation and your short and long-term plans that may affect where you decide to live in the future.  It will also include researching the housing market  to determine if you are going to be making a wise financial choice.

Step 2 - Assess the condition of your home and determine if any repairs or updates need to be made to prepare the home to sell.  Any obvious cosmetic defects should be repaired and it is advisable to have a professional home inspection to alert you to any issues that may affect the market value of your home.

Step 3 - Find a real estate professional who can help guide you through the process of selling your home.  While hiring a real estate agent to market your home and manage the transaction is an expense, it is a justifiable expense by weighing the exposure the home receives, the experience and help you receive during negotiations and the guidance and protection you receive to get the transaction to closing against the risk of making a mistake or failing to receive enough market exposure to ensure you receive the full market price for the home.

Step 4 - Stage your home to sell by making changes to the layout of furniture and adding or removing personal items as necessary to ensure potential buyers feel welcome.

Step 5 - After receiving an offer, work with your real estate agent to negotiate the most favorable terms you are able.  Chances are you will have to make some compromises, but be reasonable and confident in your home and don't cave into a pushy buyer unless you are comfortable with the terms.

Step 6 - Work with your real estate agent to comply with the terms of the contract by making any required repairs and providing any necessary paperwork to the closing or title company so the transaction can proceed smoothly.

Step 7 - Close the deal!  Congratulations, you have successfully sold your home!
