SIX  EASY WAYS TO SELL YOUR HOME FASTER!
 DECLUTTER: GET A STORAGE UNIT
You might think the easiest way to declutter your home is to shove everything into the closets. Bad idea: Anyone who tours your home is going to check out the storage spaces, and disorganized, overstuffed closets only serve as evidence that your home is lacking. Instead, get a storage unit to put away everything that is cluttering up your home.
 PHOTOS & STAGING: HIRE A PRO
A professional home stager sees your home from a buyer’s perspective — a good one understands how to highlight its strengths and soften its flaws. Your buyer’s first impression will be the listing photos, and studies show that homes with more than six listing photos online are twice as likely to be viewed by buyers.
 REAL ESTATE AGENT: YOUR LOCAL EXPERT
Don’t hire a real estate agent just because they’re also a die-hard fan of your college football team. What really matters? A track record of sales that proves they know how to sell your house fast. Are they familiar with the benefits of your neighborhood? Can they walk into your home and tell you precisely what buyers will love and hate? The right agent will help you sell your home faster and for more money.
 UPGRADES: SMALL PROJECTS, BIG RETURNS
Don’t go overboard on major remodels. Chances are, you won’t get your money back. Instead, focus on small upgrades, particularly in the kitchen and bathroom. A new sink and cabinet hardware in the kitchen, or light fixtures, shower curtains, and hand towels in the bathroom, are inexpensive but can instantly transform your space.
 CURB APPEAL: AMP IT UP!
Curb appeal is everything! Your home’s exterior is typically the first thing a buyer sees in person and on listing sites. If it doesn’t look good, a buyer won’t even consider looking at the interior shots.Tidy up your yard by trimming and shaping hedges, refreshing mulch, and edging the lawn. Consider pressure-washing your walkways, and driveway.
 TIMING: SELL WHEN THE MARKET IS HOT
Spring and summer are typically known as the best time to sell your home. If you can wait until then to list, you should consider it. But be forewarned that increased inventory means spring and summer buyers can afford to be pickier — so make sure your home is in tip-top shape.
