If you are in the process of selling your home, or even thinking about potentially selling your home, there are a few things that you need to consider in order to easily sell it. A home does not just magically sell itself – it takes a lot of work. And, when you have a child, this can be time consuming, so I recommend doing this over time (if possible). Here are a few tips to easily sell your home:
Move Out First
I 100% recommend moving out before you try to sell. This way, you are able to look at the home with its bare bones exposed, in order to see what you should (and can) improve. When potentially buyers visit your home, they will love seeing it without furniture, artwork, and other photos displayed. This will help them to imagine the home with their own things (and people) in it instead of your stuff. If you cannot swing purchasing a new home before selling your old, consider storing your things and temporarily moving in with family until the house sells. All In One Moving & Storage, Inc. is an affordable NJ-based moving company that can help you with plenty of moving services – even packing and storage solutions.

Clear explanations of costs are provided before your move, and our PriceLock guarantee protects your estimated total from additional costs.

Utilize Social Media
Social media seems to play a huge role in pretty much everything these days. If you are looking to promote anything at all, social media is critical. Social media not only allows you to reach your inner circle of friends and family, but it also allows you to reach people outside of your inner circle when your friends and family share your posts. Utilizing websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram can allow you to share the best pictures of your home with the world, and maybe reach that one person who it will be the perfect new home for. Post your home on Facebook groups (local – mom groups is always a good bet!) for extra attention.
Improve Your Landscaping
When buying a home, first impressions are key! If you have ever bought a home, think about how you reacted when you saw the houses you looked at for the first time. You most likely made some sort of a judgment based on the outside of the home, including the house itself, but also the yard and area around the home. Improving your landscaping should be on your to-do list to prepare your house to be sold. This can include tasks like planting flowers, adding fresh pine straw or wood chips to some areas, keeping your lawn freshly cut, and pulling weeds to make sure your yard looks nice and clean. This can make a surprisingly big impact on potential buyers’ overall impression of the house!
Fix Any Unsightly Problems
No one wants to buy a house that will fall apart as soon as they move in! One of the first things I always look for in a house are updates and fixes to potential problems (e.g., plumbing, air conditioning units, roof, flooring, etc.). Fixing any problems that are likely to occur will ensure potential buyers that they will be moving into a hassle-free home, and seeing the updates and renovations that have been done can give buyers comfort and encourage them to take the next step to buying your home.
Last but not least, just be patient. Sometimes it takes time to sell a home and that is okay if you want to do it right. My parents rushed into buying and selling their home and they ended up losing a lot of money. Do not be these people! Instead of being in a rush, do your research on when to sell, improve your home, move your items out, and be patient. Your home WILL eventually sell after all that you’ve done. I promise!
