There are many factors that determine how well a house sells. But ultimately it comes down to three factors: location, condition and price of the property.
Obviously the location is something that cannot be changed. But buyers look into the location of the property and consider its accessibility, appearance, and amenities of the neighborhood. Since land tends to increase in value, location may also include its acreage or lot size which could affect the quality of a house.
Condition on the other hand is some thing that can be controlled and improved. This is where a good realtor will save you time and money by knowing what to improve and what to not improve. Also any good agent will have simple tricks of the trade to help you prepare the home for selling.

Pricing is probably the most important. If you have a good agent and you trust them, I urge you to listen to their advice. Any experienced Realtor will tell you that overpricing is the worst mistake a seller can make. And keep in mind that the best way to realize the best return is to drive competition.
