					How to Sell Your Home Quickly With These Fast Home Fixup Tips

By J. P. Morton



In this article I'm going to talk about How to Sell Your Home Quickly and several tips, tricks, and
tactics that you can use to quickly and cheaply fix up your house in order to attract the right buyers
right away.

We're all feeling the pinch right now. With the massive recession that started in late 2008 and has
continued into 2010 that was started primarily by the meltdown in the housing market, many of us
are finding it harder to sell our houses then it used to be.

Fortunately there are a number of things we can do on our own to spruce up our houses a little bit
and make them more attractive to certain buyers. That's what I'm going to talk about in this article
today.

When you get right down to it, first impressions count. We try to explain differently to our children
with sayings like "don't judge a book by its cover"... but the fact of the matter remains that
everybody judges a book by its cover and everybody judges your house on its first appearance.

So the first thing you should focus on is the front of your house. Look at your house from the street.
How does it look? Are the hedges shabby? If so trim them up. How does the front door look? Put a
new coat of paint on it to spruce it up cheaply. Why not add a new front door mat while you're at it.
All of these things can be done very cheaply and very quickly and it's almost a crime not to do them.

The next thing to do is make the entry way to your house look huge. Right when you walk in the
front door you should see a table with a mirror on it. Mirrors make everything look bigger and they'll
make your front entryway look bigger too. Spacious entryways are particularly important. Take
everything else out that you can including coat racks and mail holders and anything else that clutters
up the entryway.

Next you should shine up the kitchen as much as possible. People love kitchens so you should make
yours look as nice as possible. This can be as simple as putting away counter-top appliances to make
the place seem bigger. Take down all those silly magnets and your children's pictures from the front
of the refrigerator because those things are adorable to you but look trashy to everybody else. Be
sure to wash the windows in your kitchen as well because this will allow more light into the room if
you haven't done it in a while.

Finally a quick trip out to the patio and a quick cleaning of it can do wonders as well. Clear away all
the junk from your patio like children's bicycles or the lawnmower that somebody forgot to put away
etc.

So there you have several very simple tips that you can use to quickly spruce up your home to
attract buyers as quickly as possible. Of course there are many other things you can do if you want
to spend some extra money but if you're on a budget you can't go wrong with these simple tips.
