Five Things That Will Help Your Home Sell Fast


There are a lot of factors that will determine how quickly your house is sold, and it's important to tackle the factors you can control. If you're still living in your home while trying to sell it, these are a few simple ideas that can help speed up the home sale process.

Five Things That Will Help Your Home Sell Fast

Here are 5 things that will help your home sell fast:

  1. De-clutter: Buyers want to step into a prospective home and imagine the possibilites. That's a lot easier to do when a space is airy and clutter-free. Get rid of the clutter that's just taking up space in your home, and it can totally transform how a buyer sees the property.
  2. Offer an incentive: Don't break the bank for add-ons that don't make financial sense in the long run, but there are some reasonable expenses you can use to entice buyers, such as offering a home warranty.
  3. Focus on flow: Now that you're working toward a new home, it's important to position your furniture for easy movement through the space, rather than how you personally like it arranged. Position your furniture so that it's natural to flow from one room to the next.
  4. Take care of your to-do list: There's probable a list of small repairs that you've been putting off for a while, like fixing a dripping faucet or touching up paint on some walls. Make those repairs so that the home is more move-in ready for buyers.
  5. Commit to cleaniness: Just like removing clutter, keeping your place clean can go a long way toward appealing to buyers. It's especially true in the kitchen - no dishes in the sink or coffee rings on the countertops!

Put your best foot forward....your home must be both visually and emotionally appealing to bring in potential buyers.  It's important to prepare prior to listing!

It's not a game, it's your life.

Cathy - This is something that I am definitely going to have to share with my clients that just don't get the clutter-clean-care concept.

Awesome advice.  Sometimes buyers have a hard time putting their precious moments collection away but decluttering is imperative.

Cathy - Great list! First of all, that's a beautiful house in the photo. The two least expensive things you can do that go a long way is declutter and clean!  The to-do list is probably the most tedious but, really important. The flow of the home is important as well. Sometimes people can't put their finger on why a home doesn't work and it may be as simple as the way it is staged or the flow! Way to go!
