You’re ready to sell your house. This is an exciting and nerve-wracking time. Regardless of the reasons you are selling your home, there are three things to help your home sell more quickly. Get it ready. Get it listed. Get it sold! Let’s look at each of these three in details.
Before you list your home for sale, make sure you take care of any obvious repairs. Maybe you’ve been meaning to re-shingle the roof for the last two summers. Now is the time to get it done! Or perhaps you have a couple light fixtures that no longer work. Take care of them. You want to sell your house quickly, and the best way to do that is to ensure everything is in great condition.
We’ve seen it on every home selling show on TV. They do these amazing updates to the home and it sells right away. We can’t all afford to make the kind of upgrades we’ve seen on television, but we can help improve the chances of our home selling. Even something as simple as a fresh coat of paint can help sell your house more quickly. Consider making these other upgrades as well. (include link to previous post I wrote)

Make a Contract
Make sure your realtor creates a great contract. You want to make sure everything is taken care of without any problems down the road.
Watch the Transaction
Even after you have a contract, ask your realtor to monitor the transaction. Unexpected delays can be kept to a minimum with a realtor who knows what to look out for.
Seal the Deal
Make plans to attend the closing. Leave the home completely presentable for the new owners. When you sell your house it can be hard to walk away, but you’ve put too much time and effort into everything to look back now!
