Quickly Preparing Your House for Sale

Do you find yourself in the position of quickly preparing your house for sale? In a perfect world it is great when you have tons of time to prepare for something as important as selling your home. However, things don’t always work out that way. Let’s face it, life has a funny way of throwing curve balls every so often.

You may find yourself in the position of having to sell quickly. If you do, all you can do is to do that best with the time that you do have.

So, what can you do with the time you have to make your home as attractive as possible?

Here are some simple ideas:
  • Clean the house from top to bottom.
  • Get rid of as much clutter as possible. You’re moving so now is the time to pack up things. Think of it as multi-tasking! You’re staging and moving at the same time! If necessary, put some things in storage. Try to make every room look organized and spacious.
  • Depersonalize your house as much as possible. For example, stow away family pictures. You want buyers to imagine themselves living there, not you.
  • Get all minor repairs done.
  • Paint. It’s the fastest and cheapest way to dramatically improve the look of any room.
  • Replace any burnt out light bulbs. Better lighting helps your home look its best. Also, lights that aren’t working can raise red flags for potential buyers.
  • Don’t forget the outdoors. Prune the hedges, sweep the walkways, and deal with any potential eyesores — such as a rusted old bike stowed in the side yard.
