 “The market is doing well at fair market prices. If sellers will do little things, we can turn that house around very quickly,” says Richard Davis, a real estate agent with Century 21 in Southern Illinois.

“Take a look at your house the way a potential buyer might. Go to the street, close your eyes and remember what attracted you to the house.
