Tip #1: Increase The Odds
The first thing you should do to improve your chances of selling your house fast is to “stage” your home. This is when you make your house look as attractive as possible to potential buyers.
Consider the curb appeal of your home by putting yourself in the shoes of your prospective buyers. What do they see when they pull up in front of your house? Consider what type of relatively inexpensive, fast improvements you can make – such as landscaping or power washing the outside. The first impression sets the table for the rest of the showing.
If you don’t have time to clean the inside of your home yourself, spend a few bucks and have a local Michigan cleaning service do it for you. Then, once it’s cleaned, keep as many areas as possible off limits so that it stays neat and tidy. You may want to eat out until your home is sold! Also, consider putting down plastic walkway throughout the house, especially if you have carpet.
If you don’t have time to do home staging yourself, there are plenty of local home staging companies out there. Just head to Google and type “Michigan home staging companies”.
Tip #2: Upgrade
Ready for more house selling tips? The two biggest upgrades to consider are bathroom and kitchen updates. These are typically the two most important areas of the home to a potential buyer. Upgrading these rooms can cost a good amount of money, but more often than not, you’ll be able to sell the house for more than the cost of the upgrades. The first step would be to check with your real estate agent to determine what types of updates the comparable sales have. Plus, if the other for sale houses have newer features, it’ll be much harder to sell an older house. If you can’t afford upgrades, you can also consider selling to a cash buyer like us!

On the bright side, there are also a lot of low hanging fruit that aren’t overly expensive. Simple fixes like fresh paint and new cabinet/door hardware can really make an older house pop!
Flooring is also a relatively inexpensive fix, and you can usually do it yourself! Our recommendation is Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring. You should always check comparable sales first, but LVP are durable, look great, cost effective and don’t require an expert to install.

Tip #3: Don’t Distract
When potential buyers look at your home, they want to see it as their new place, not your existing one.
Help build this illusion by removing everything that personalizes your home, such as family pictures, personalized art, and any type of clutter. It may be worthwhile to rent a storage unit for the time you are selling your home.The more open space you can create, the bigger your rooms will look. We’ve also found that good lighting makes a big difference. Make sure to replace some of your old light bulbs with newer, brighter bulbs. Check out this guide to learn more about how to pick the best light bulb for every room in your house.
You can also add cheap flowers to the outside and inside, you can hang generic picture frames or put small, simple plants throughout the house.
