Top 5 Things You Should Know To Help Sell Your Home Fast

While many markets around the country continue to experience challenges as the market makes its slow turnaround, here are the 5 top things to sell your home faster.
1. Curb Appeal Is Key To Selling Your Home. If it looks rundown from the outside, then it probably is on the inside too. Curb appeal is all about first impressions. Buyers want to feel like they could live in a home from the moment they pull up in front of it. Basic improvements such as exterior painting, cutting the grass and planting some flowers improve the look of a home from the outside tremendously.
2. Deodorize. Every home has a unique odor, especially if pets are present. Be sure to professionally clean the carpet and the furniture and replace carpets if necessary. Keep pets clean and the home free of dander. Consider taking pets and pet cages if present in the home with you when you leave for showings.
3. Really Want To Sell Your Home? Repair and Repaint. A little putty and paint can make all the difference. Repair damaged dry wall, gouges in wood surfaces and paint the walls. Bright colors, such as those in children's rooms should be repainted with a neutral color that will be attractive to a wide variety of buyers.
4. Put Away Your Personal Collections. Here, the old saying that one man's treasure is another man's junk rings true. De-clutter your home by packing up knick-knacks, heirlooms, personal collections, and even family photos. After all, they are special only to you and your goal is to make the home presentable to the widest number of people possible. Expensive collections should be packed away as well as to keep them safe.
5. No Guns, Drugs or Valuables. If you own a gun, be sure it's unloaded and lock it away. Don't leave it accessible to anyone viewing your home, especially anyone with children. The same is true for prescription drugs, fine jewelry, valuable art work, money and anything else you want to keep safe.
