There are many reasons why you may need to sell your home quickly: a sudden job relocation; a change in family situation; or perhaps an opportunity to purchase a new home that you just can’t pass up. Or perhaps it’s time to downsize -

Whatever the reason, this strategy will help when you need to sell fast. It’s that time of year when we don’t get out as much which makes it the perfect time to do some work around the house and get it ready to put on the market.   It’s called the “3 Up” strategy.

  • Fix it up
  • Clean it up
  • Spruce it up

First, you need to fix it up. That simply means getting things repaired around your property, such as a broken floor tile in the kitchen or a sticking patio door that’s difficult to open and close. Maintenance issues like these distract buyers from the appealing qualities of your home. Fortunately, repairs can usually be done quickly.

Second, clean it up. Obviously, when your home is clean and tidy it’s going to look its best. You also want to eliminate as much clutter as possible. You don’t need to make every room look like a magazine cover — but that’s a good attitude to have when prepping your home for a sale!

Finally, spruce it up. That means making any quick improvements that will make your home even more appealing. It might mean replacing the kitchen counters or giving the main rooms a fresh coat of paint.
