I recently read an article on HGTV.com about the top 10 secrets of selling your home, and I thought they hit the nail right on the head. But of course, it is HGTV, and they do know a thing or two about what they are talking about. But I thought that I would share with you their top ten, but with my own take on each item. And I will rank them more according to my opinion on which are more important than the others. So let’s jump to it!
