If you need to sell your property urgently, there is a simple, well proven formula that helps sell properties super-fast and most importantly at premium sale prices. It includes:

a) how to price your home to sell fast

b) how to choose a real estate agent proven competent, quickly 

c) what method of sale will be most effective for a speedy sale

d) how to home stage using your existing furnishings. Home staging alone is reputed to add 10-15% onto an expected sale price.

When all combined, this is a good formula to achieve the urgency you need.
