Discover How to Sell Your House Fast

Tips for a Quick Home Sale

Take a step back and look at your house from your buyers’ perspective. What do you see? Is it appealing? Would you have bought this house if it looked like this when you were buying? Walk across the street and look at your house. Is it attractive? Will buyers race to set an appointment to see the house, or race to get away?

The point is to make your house as appealing as possible. Fix it, paint it, clean it.

Here are some tips to consider:

  • Remove clutter. You want your house to appear as spacious as possible. The more clutter, the less spacious it appears. 

  • Are you afraid of your closets? Well, grab some trash bags, a few boxes, and then clean them out. Use a rummage sale, used clothing store, community donation center, resale shop, or just take stuff to the dump if it is no longer usable. You can organize your closets in such a way that they appear roomy by limiting the amount of clothing on the rods. 

  • Has the floor of your garage seen the light of day recently? If not, then it is time to do some serious hanging up, throwing out, and rearranging. 

  • Is there a side to your house that seems to collect stuff? If so, get rid of it. Make your entire yard a pleasant scene. 

  • Make sure your house is clean and organized before each showing to potential buyers. You’ll be amazed at all the stains, fingerprints, pet hair, and dust that have accumulated over the years. Have your entire house professionally cleaned. At the very least, have the carpets steam cleaned. 

  • Repair broken items so they do not become a concern for your prospective buyers. 

The idea is to create an atmosphere where your potential buyers can easily envision themselves living in your home.
