Ten tips to help you sell your house fast

  1. Clean out the clutter. Take a minimalist approach.  Start packing and neatly store your belongings in the garage or inside closets or consider temporarily storing excessive belongings and large furniture in storage.

  2. Depersonalize your home. Remove all your family photos and memorabilia. You want buyers to see the hose as a home for their family, not yours. Remove political and religious items, your children’s artwork (and everything else) from the refrigerator and anything that marks the house as your territory.

  3. Spruce it up. Clean carpets, fix broken window shades, leaky faucets, get rid of unpleasant smells.

  4. Touch up wall paint. If you’ve painted rooms in bold colors, consider repainting in white. Not everyone loves red.

  5. Let the light shine. Open the shades and blinds, turn on the lights. People love light and bright, and the best way to show off your house is to let the sunshine in.

  6. Mow the lawn and trim the bushes. First impressions ARE lasting. Sweep the front porch. Flowers are inviting and make a good first impression.

  7. Hire a professional and experienced Military Relocation Professional that understands the complexities of a military move.

  8. Price it right. Now is not the time to get greedy. Your Real Estate Professional will provide you with a market analysis of your neighborhood and provide you with honest feedback as to what they feel your house might sell for quickly.

  9. Make your home available. Buyers like to see homes on their schedule, which often means evenings and weekends. If you require 24 hours’ notice, they may choose to skip your home altogether.

  10. Spread the word. Let your neighbors and everyone you know that you are selling your house. Neighbors often have friends and relatives who are looking to move into your neighborhood. List your home on Military Websites where other Military families are looking to buy.
