Getting an Early Start on Selling your Home

You've probably heard the expression, "The early-bird gets the worm." It refers, of course, to those who get in early and reap the rewards. For example, if you arrive early to a retail store for a big blowout sale, you're likely to get the deals before the inventory runs out. The stragglers who come later miss out. Well, this same wisdom can be applied to selling your home. Starting the process early — even if that means simply doing some initial planning — gives you the edge in several ways. First of all, you get extra time for preparation. That means you can get your home cleaned, uncluttered and staged without feeling rushed. You also get more time to find out how much your property will likely sell for on today's market. That's important information, especially if you're also looking to finance a new home. Secondly, there's less stress. You'll have more time to make the right decisions. The last thing you want is to be scrambling around, last minute, trying to get your home ready for sale. Finally, with your initial preparations done, you'll be able to put your home on the market at a moment's notice. That's a huge advantage especially when you find your next home and you can safely make an offer on it, confident that your property is ready to for market.

Sell your house fast - Cleaning the basement

Most of us tolerate a degree of untidiness in at least one part of our home. Usually it's the basement. We store stuff the kids won on the sporting field or good quality tools that you don't use any more, but "they’re worth something". We all fall into that trap of keeping stuff that if we're honest nobody else wants. People in their twenties and thirties don't really appreciate the things a senior cherished once upon a time.
