There are several reasons why a homeowner may want to sell their house much faster. It could be to get a new job, a personal situation and many others. Selling a house can be stressful and something strenuous to do within a given timeline. 

If you don’t hire a real estate agent to save on money, you must ensure you put in the needed effort to sell your home. Though the process will be nerve-wracking, you will have buyers flocking in with the proper research and attitude.

If you want to reduce your house’s time on the market, here are a few practical tips to help you attain that.

Clean Your House Thoroughly

This strategy you should adopt when you are on short notice for selling your home. Nothing can keep away potential buyers than a dirty home, so you should ensure you list a clean home. Cleaning and decluttering can make any house’s interior attractive and appealing to the eye of a buyer.

You can begin by storing old stuff no longer in use in large storage boxes to make the rooms look less crowded or messy. It would help if you also organised all closets and cabinets to create an illusion of big storage spaces in the house. Besides, buyers are always on the lookout for homes with large storage spaces. 

If this is a lot to handle, then hiring a cleaning company can get the work done appropriately within a short period.

Repair All Damages

You cannot begin to market your home when you have a lot of damages. For instance, if you have broken cabinets and doors, a leaking roof or cracked walls, you should take care of such issues before you begin to market your home. Otherwise, this will be a significant turnoff to a buyer as no one wants to buy a house to incur repair costs.

If the home’s lighting has an issue, hire the best Electrical Contractor to get everything fixed. Good lighting can go a long way in increasing the value of your home, which not only means selling it faster but at a higher price.


This is one primary mistake that most sellers make, which they never realise. If you want to sell your home and move on as quickly as you can, you should depersonalise it. This simply means getting rid of personal belongings like wedding photos, religious and political items, your kid’s artwork and more. Or you could consider putting your valuables in a self storage facility.

Having such items on sight when buyers tour your home is another significant turn off that can distract them. In addition, it will be tough for buyers to picture themselves living in the house. Therefore, you should replace personal items with neutral things such as paintings which can be a lot more attractive.

Hire a Professional Photographer

Lastly, you should hire a professional to take pictures and record amazing videos to make your home sell much faster. Then, editing the photos and videos with filters and effects will not only seem professional, but they are quick to attract buyers.

The above tips are a surefire way to sell your home quickly. Of course, if you are working solely, be sure to consider them, but if you hire an agent, no need to worry because they will do everything on your behalf.
