  1. Do some paint touch ups around the house! Consider touching up the walls where pictures may have hung, the trim along the floors and the like. The better the paint job looks, the better the house works.
     
  2. Talk to someone that is an outsider. Ask them what you need to do to get your home sold sooner. For example, your real estate agent can be a great source for this!
     
  3. Be sure that you are decluttering your home, which is a great tip if you plan on moving soon, anyways.
     
  4. When taking photos of the home for a website or the like, or even when you have people coming into to see the home, remember to keep your pets out of the way. While you may love your huge dog, you are going to find that not everyone is going to love him/her.
     
  5. Remember that when selling a home, lighting is everything. Be sure that you have as much natural light in the home as possible. This is a huge selling point!
     
  6. Make sure your home has some great curb appeal…as this is the first impression that your home is making to potential buyers.
     
  7. Have a plan for when you want your home shown and whether you will be here during this showing. Some relators prefer that you are not, while others do not care. Be sure to talk with your real estate agent on what he or she wants you to do when your home is being shown to potential buyers.

Remember, the process of selling a home and moving into a new home is going to take time. But these tips can make it run a bit smoother!
