Steps To Selling My House Quickly

It’s a new year and you are looking to make major changes and perhaps one of those changes is selling your home. You might be wondering, “What are the steps to selling my house quickly?” There are many things you could do to sell your house fast. Read below to see what those are!

Less Is More

When it comes to upgrading your home, less is more. Don’t go overboard with the upgrades all over the home. Many people end up making too many repairs or spending too much money and don’t get all that money back. Not all upgrades are investments. Simple repairs such as replacing door knobs, a fresh coat of paint, fixing leaky faucets and even putting up new blinds and curtains can make a huge difference in the appearance of your home and be pretty inexpensive. 

Empty Storage Space

The bottom line is people don’t like clutter. Leave room for potential buyers to be able to picture where they would put their personal belongings. Cluttered closets and cabinets will turn off buyers so take all the unnecessary things out and open up the space.

Light Up The House

A house gives off a much better impression when it is well-lit. You can make your home seem much brighter by doing simple things such as cleaning windows, taking down drapes, changing out lampshades and even increasing the wattage of all your light bulbs. If you have a showing on a beautiful sunny day, open all the windows and curtains and let the light in.

No Pets

Not everyone is an animal lover, which is a sad truth. You may love Spot and he may be a great family dog, but that doesn’t mean potential buyers will think so. If you happen to have a pet, make sure to take it over to the neighbors or to a relative’s house while the house is showing. Make sure all traces of a pet are gone, not dog food or bowl, and no litter boxes are allowed. Animals make homes seem smelly and dirty and may leave a bad impression on anyone that may be taking a walk-through of your house.


Take all your personal stuff out of your home while it’s showing/on the market. Remove all personal pictures, kid’s crafts projects, grandpa’s old rocking chair, and anything that may clutter the living space. Potential buyers should be able to picture themselves living in the home. Stage simply!


When you are selling your home, you are pretty much selling your kitchen. A home’s kitchen is probably the most important part of it. If your kitchen is dated, you should probably remodel it. Most people get about 85% of returns after renovating their kitchens. Many sellers knock up to $10,000 off the asking price when a kitchen isn’t upgraded. If you have the budget to remodel the kitchen make sure to use neutral modern colors and if you are looking to upgrade your appliances, stainless steel appliances are always a hit. Updating your kitchen may be what gets someone to buy your home!

Curb Appeal

First impressions matter, we have said this many times in past posts and that’s because it’s true. Curb appeal is everything. If you can do some brand-new landscape on your front lawn, go ahead! Keep it tidy and even hire a lawn care company during the time it’s on the market so it constantly looks good. You will for sure make a 100% return on the money that you put into your front lawn. Make your home welcoming from the start. If your potential buyers are impressed from the start, it can only get better from there.
