Tips to Sell Your HouseAlthough houses are selling in a shorter period of time than this time last year, you can speed up the time it takes to sell your house even further by following a few simple tips. By following these tips to sell your house quick, you’ll increase the number of interested potential buyers as your house becomes more appealing. When selling a house, it’s important to remember the first impression, stage your home, make necessary repairs and setting the right price.

First Impressions
The saying, “don’t judge a book by its cover” isn’t always true when it comes to selling a house. A potential home buyer’s first impression of your home goes a long way when it comes to selling a house. Take your home’s curb appeal into consideration when trying to sell your house quick. Make sure the yard is well kept and the exterior of the house is painted prior to trying to sell your house. If your yard is overgrown with weeds and paint is chipping off, it’s not going to be very appealing no matter how well the interior of the house looks.

Stage Your Home
When selling a house, you want to stage your home if possible. According to a recent survey, 95 percent of staged homes sell quicker when compared to homes that aren’t staged.  Your house should be cleaned very well, including decluttering and arranging furnishings. Try to depersonalize the house if possible. Make sure your walls are painted, your counter tops are clean and all of the kids’ toys are picked up from view.

Make Repairs
Even the smallest of repairs are important when you want to sell your house quick. The simplest of things, such as a cracked baseboard or leaky faucet tells a potential home buyer that your house may not have been well maintained. No matter if the project is big or small, make all necessary repairs prior to selling a house.

Price Matters
As there’s a large inventory of homes for sale, you want to make sure your home is listed for the best price possible. Have your home appraised before selling it to make sure you are setting the right price. You’ll want to set the price slightly higher than the appraisal value, yet slightly lower than comparable homes. If you want to sell your home quick, your goal won’t be to make a huge profit.

Now that you have the tips to sell a house quick, begin spreading the word to help your house sell faster. Advertise as much as possible to reach as many people as you can. By putting in a little extra effort with these tips and marketing your home, it will really pay off with how quickly your home will sell.

 You only get one chance to make a good first impression.  Steven, you were right on in saying if they see "little repairs" that were ignored, they would wonder what other repairs might be needed.
