If your house is for sale, you are no doubt anxious for the sale to happen so you can move on to the next chapter in your life. Your house may have been for sale for quite a while or you may have just put it on the market. Either way, there are little things you can do to speed the process along.
Curb appeal is so important and it makes such an impression. The view from the curb is the first thing people see when they drive up to the house you have for sale. You should take special care to make sure what they are seeing is pleasing to the eye. Make sure the lawn is kept neatly cut and the flower beds are filled and tended to in an orderly manner. A new mailbox is an inexpensive way to up the curb appeal and spruce things up in a hurry. Hanging an attractive wreath on the door is welcoming to those who are looking at the home you have for sale.
Make sure you keep the interior nice and neat. No one wants to come see a house for sale that has toys strewn all over the place and last night’s popcorn bowls left on the coffee table.
Give the main rooms a new coat of paint in a neutral color. This is not the time to let your personality shine. Your goal while your house is for sale is to make the home impersonal so that anyone can imagine themselves living in the home and making it their own.
Get rid of clutter. Make sure each closet is nicely organized. Take the excess things to a storage unit or other place for storage so that the closet can be seen and appreciated for the true value it offers.
If you follow these tips, your house will not be for sale for very long.
