Homeowners think they need to spend a small fortune to prep their home for being listed, but it’s not true. If you need to sell your home quickly but don’t have the money to do significant upgrades, stay tuned to learn about no-cost ways to sell your house quickly.
Clean and Declutter
It doesn’t take money to clean and declutter your home. Holding a garage sale could make you money. First, though, purge anything you haven’t used in a year. Get rid of old books, clothes, or other things you no longer use. Organize the closets and put things into categories. Deep clean each room, including baseboards, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, carpets, and other floorings. A fresh-smelling home does wonders for attracting prospects.
Keep it Simple
After cleaning and decluttering, take down any pictures, knickknacks, or other items that would turn people away. Remember, people want to imagine themselves in the house, not your memorabilia. A vase of silk flowers is just as good as fresh ones. A mild-smelling but pleasant spray spritzed around the house provides a nice aroma.
Host a Yard Sale
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so plan a yard sale and get rid of items around your home. Mark gently used pieces with a reasonable price and set a day for a garage or yard sale. Whatever doesn’t sell can be donated to a local charity.
Sell at the Right Price
The biggest challenge a homeowner faces is selling their home at the right price to sell quickly. Overpricing means more time on the market, so you may end up needing to reduce your price anyway. If you sell your home at a slightly lower price, chances are you will sell much more quickly.
You might want to consider the price points that a majority of buyers search for within your area. For example, if you lost your home for $299,000, it’ll show up in search results for anyone looking for homes that price and under; however, if you list it as $305,000, it will never show up in search results, so keep that in mind.
Do Quick Repairs
Use some hand tools to fix loose tiles, tighten leaky faucets, repair loose door handles, or patch up spots where the paint is cracked or peeling. You probably have some extra paint lying around that you can touch up the walls, as well as apply caulk to areas in which water has caused some damage.
Clean up Your Yard
Curb appeal is everything when selling a home quickly. Mowing and edging your lawn, weeding, and cleaning up garbage or leaves makes your home look inviting. Wash off your porch and driveway, and power wash your siding or windows—trim trees and bushes for a neat appearance.
