How to Get Ready to Sell Your House

Quick fixes to get your home in selling shape fast.

Wondering how to get ready to sell your house? There are a few quick projects and easy fixes to tackle before that “For Sale” sign goes up in your yard.

1| Declutter
Nothing stalls a potential sale like a cluttered home. Remove papers, knick knacks, family photos, and other personal items from every space. If you don’t have room to get organized, rent a storage space.

2| Patch walls
If you’ve lived in your house for a while, chances are that you have quite a few old nail holes and dents in your drywall. Patch those up and retouch paint before your first open house. Get some help from Lowe’s if you’re not sure how to get started.

3| Upgrade your bedspread
Getting your house ready to sell may be as easy as picking a stylish duvet. Get a new, simple bedspread and add accent pillows to showcase your master bedroom.

4| Hire a cleaning crew
You clean your home all the time, so it’s easy to overlook little things that throw up red flags for buyers. Hire a professional crew to dust every inch of your home, polish woodwork, and clean windows until they sparkle.

5| Evaluate your entryway
First impressions are key for buyers. Clear your head, pretend you’ve never seen your home, and stand in your entryway. Do you want to see more? If not, add some curb appeal with planters, a wreath, or even a new coat of paint on your front door.
