If any of that sounds familiar, then you will be considering picking up and laying down roots in a different area of the country, county or state.

Improve curb appeal

You have to think of the outside of your home as your welcoming card and then think, ‘how welcoming is my home?’ Take a good, close look at the property and question “would I buy this house?” Think about paintwork, the state of the yard, loose paneling and such. When it comes down to it, you have to think that you are selling the most expensive item someone may ever buy, so, how should it be presented?

Do your own home stagings
A home staging has become the norm for those looking to sell the home, but it comes at a cost. In the near $1000’s you could be spending money which is better served on legal documentation or better yet, in your back pocket. Learn to how to stage your home by preparing the space accordingly. Move furniture, enlist the help of friends, and greet people with a warm, welcoming home. 32% of home buyers are willing to pay more for homes that they have seen staged over those that haven’t!

Choose the selling solution for you
You could go down the traditional realtor route, but that could also cost you $1000’s especially when it comes to marketing your property and the other typical sales solutions that they have. You could go it alone and try and sell the house yourself; be warned of legal and financial costs if you don’t get things right. Finally you could use a solution like that presented by Fast Florida House Sale which is selling your home to property groups within 48 hours of placing the property on the market. Find a solution that works best for you and what your needs are, be it short and long term.
