Pro Tips for Selling Your Home Fast – Plymouth Rock Assurance

Now that you’ve decided to move, you face the daunting task of selling your house. There are many simple things you can do that can greatly increase your chances of having interested buyers. Here are some pro tips for selling your home fast and for a fair price.

Make a Good First Impression

You have one chance to make a good impression, so look at your house from a buyer’s perspective. Is it attractive, clean and welcoming? Does the staging accent its best features? Would you want to buy it?

Stand Out in the Neighborhood

If every home in your neighborhood looks the same, take steps to stand out and be unique. As long as the improvements you make complement your home, they can attract and impress buyers. You can achieve this by sprucing up the landscaping which improves curb appeal. Give your front door and shutters a fresh coat of paint. Include any uncommon features or improvements in your listing.

Show Off the Storage

Most buyers want a home with plentiful storage. To showcase the storage options your home offers, sell or donate anything you don’t want, use or love. Remove and store at least one-third of your remaining belongings. Organize all the closets and cabinets. Keep your entire house tidy and organized so it is ready to show at all times.

Turn on the Lights

Your house will appear larger, more welcoming and cheerful when it’s bright. Some easy ways to brighten up your home is to remove your curtains or keep them open prior to someone coming to look at your home. Wash the inside and outside of your windows and trim trees and bushes around the windows.

Carefully Consider Upgrades

Before you invest money in a basement renovation or new carpeting, consider if the improvements will add value or appeal to your house. Although you may love your canary yellow office, that might not appeal to the masses. The cheapest way to make a big difference in your home is to paint the walls. Neutral colors are best for when you’re selling. Installing new cabinet hardware is also a great way to give your kitchen an updated look quickly and affordably.

Complete Essential Repairs

A home that’s move-in ready will attract buyers, especially when you make repairs that save a buyer money. If you don’t get things fixed prior to putting your home up for sale, chances are that a home inspector will find the issues and you’ll either have to lower the price of your home, or get them fixed before selling anyway.


When buyers tour your house, they imagine themselves living there. Help them see the big picture by removing your personal items, including family photos and personal mementos.

Price it Right

Pricing can be one of the most challenging aspects of the home selling process. Price the house too low, and you lose money, but price it too high and it may not sell quickly. Get a fair price and a faster sale by researching the price of comparable homes in your area. Ask a real estate professional for their honest feedback.
