Price is obviously the most important factor, so make certain that your home is priced at or near fair market value.  However, the marketing (and exposure to potential Buyers) and the condition of your home are also critical.  

Re: Marketing:  Your well-priced home won't sell if no one can see that it is for sale.  So, you need to make certain that you maximize your Buyer exposure via visibility on MLS (through a real estate agent), Zillow, Trulia and other online engines.

Re: Condition:  Condition can be reflected as price (i.e. worse condition = lower price), but many Buyers will not even consider a home that does not meet their subjective standards.  So, while the price may not deter a particular Buyer, the paint-needy walls, cracked window or untidy home (easy, inexpensive fixes) may cause the Buyer to walk...  Your job is to minimize the "issues" that might cause such Buyers to walk. 

Good luck selling your home.

The R E market is always about price. Nothing else much matters. If it is priced correctly based on nearby comps/location/condition etc it will sell. Many sellers do not like the prices it might take to sell so they stay priced too high, but buyers always determine value, not the seller.

Defiantly call an local Realtor to current market analysis of your homes value. The agent should also give you advise on staging tips and a marketing plan for your home. Good luck!!
