The time it takes to sell your home depends on a number of factors. However, here's a few proven, foolproof ways to reduce your home’s time on the market. 


  • Find an Experienced Local Agent

    Working with a seasoned professional is your best bet when it comes to selling your home. An experienced agent will dot all the Is and cross all the Ts. Plus, they may have access to off-market buyers who may purchase your home faster.

  • Deep Clean Everything

    An easy way to turn off prospective buyers? Have a dirty home. If you don’t want to deep clean, outsource help to get the job done...sometimes you only get one shot!

  • Take the “You” Out of Your Home

    It’s important to depersonalize your house so that buyers can envision themselves there, plus you want them to focus on and remember the house, not distracted . This means removing toys, children’s artwork, family photos,'ll be moving soon anyway so now would be a good time!

  • Light It Up

    Buyers love light and bright, so open the curtains, blinds, and shades. Turn on all lights in dark rooms. If any spots in the home lack natural light, strategically place lamps there to compensate.

  • Remove Excess Furniture

    Too much furniture can make your home seem smaller. Buyers want to imagine what they could do with the space. If possible, rent a storage unit to keep your extra furniture so you can declutter'll be moving soon anyway so now would be a good time to start!

  • Stage Your Home

    Along with removing your furniture, consider home staging. It has been shown to help homes sell up to three times faster, even New Home Builders stage their homes, which makes sense, since it allows buyers to view the home as a blank slate.

  • Get Professional Photos

    If there’s one thing you shouldn’t do, it’s skimp on the quality of house photos. It’s absolutely imperative to hire a professional photographer to make your home look flawless. After all, the NAR’s research shows that 96% of buyers use online tools to search for a home. There’s no taking back a first impression! 

  • Invest in a 3D Tour

    To stand out from other home listings, get a 3D tour done. This will help your house sell faster by allowing buyers to virtually travel through your home without leaving their own.

  • Upgrade Your Curb Appeal

    First impressions are also important when it comes to the first in-person view of your home. This means you need to ensure your house has excellent curb appeal. Easy ways to do this are painting the front door and getting a new mailbox. You could also spruce up the landscaping and add plants and/or color flowers in pots.

  • Perfect the Entryway

    To capitalize on that curb appeal, keep the good impression going in the entryway. Make sure the foyer/entry is clean and clutter-free, and that it appears as open as possible.

  • Repaint

    To help your home sell faster, a new coat of interior paint works wonders. Choose neutral colors so that, again, buyers can envision themselves incorporating their own personal touches in the house.

  • Make Necessary Repairs

    If there are any glaring repairs that you’ve been putting off, it’s time to bite the bullet to help your home sell faster. These days especially, buyers are looking for homes they don’t have to invest a lot of effort into fixing up.

  • Have Flexibility with Showings

    Of course a little notice would be good, but also be ready to leave the home at a moment’s notice when you list. Buyers like to house hunt on their own schedule, so you may have less than 24 hours’ notice when it comes to showings. However, being flexible in this way will definitely help your home sell faster.

  • Price Your Home Correctly

    Listing your home for the right price is paramount when it comes to selling it faster. Buyers and their agents have access to current comparable home sale prices, and a house that’s overpriced in the beginning tends to stay on the market longer. Even after the price is reduced, buyers tend to think something is wrong with the home. Don’t make this mistake!
