Perhaps the most important but often overlooked aspect is intelligent and competitive pricing. Priced Too High - it may never sell. Priced Too Low - your 'leaving money on the table'. Priced Just Right with a Written Valuation as Backup - leads to a quicker sale with less debate.
Specialty Financing - Most modern banks are prepared to offer you a loan on a three-year-old Honda Accord every day of the week. To finance a 1959 Cadillac Coupe DeVille or a Mercedes UNIMOG? That requires a different type of lending institution; and they are out there - but they require and appraisal and the documentation to back it up.
