Posted: October 16, 2015 by Alex Fowler

Tired of the house or location you are in? Are you in need to sell a home fast or are you just wanting to move? Either way, moving isn't easy. Especially when your looking at selling your home fast. Fortunately, there are some simple solutions to help you speed up selling a home.

Several reasons that you may need to sell your Springfield home could be that you are wanting to relocate to Nixa, MO or maybe even Ozark, MO. Maybe you got a job and just need to relocate in Springfield. Selling a home fast in Springfield, MO can be stressful. However, these tips can make it less stressful for you and also easier.

Pretty It Up

There are a lot of houses in Nixa, Ozark, and Springfield. So, first impressions are everything. If your home isn't that attractive from the outside, potential buyers will go on to the next home. If the front of your house is messy and unappealing, work as quick as possible on improving it. You don't have to completely redo everything, but just take a little bit of time in order to "spruce it up". Even just painting, mulching, planting flowers, power washing, and replacing burned-out porch light bulbs can make your home more appealing and inviting.

Pick the Right Price

Sellers normally believe that they should price high in order to get the highest profit and then if the house doesn't sell, they will lower the price. However, this strategy is not ideal if you are trying to sell your home fast. Buyers may be drawn away from the original high asking price, resulting in your home being on the market longer. Pick a more reasonable price when selling a home in Springfield, MO if you are short on time. This will attract buyers and speed up the process of your home selling.

Play a Few Mind Games

If you are having an open house in Springfield, MO and wanting someone to buy it quick, remove things like family photographs, keepsakes, and anything else that may distract a buyer from seeing themselves live in it. Buyers want to think of them and their families living in the house. This can make the buyers feel more at home and connect to it, which will make them more likely to buy it.

Be Flexible

If you’re looking to sell a home fast, be flexible with your schedule. You may have real estate agents, like ones here at Coldwell Banker Vanguard, calling you to see if they can show your home.They may give you little notice or call you during odd times. Be as accommodating as possible so more buyers can see your home, which could mean that your house can sell faster.

On the Inside Counts, Too

If you spend some time fixing up the outside of your home, you should spend some time fixing up the inside as well. You don't want buyers to love the front yard, but not the inside. Take note of what updates you can do quickly that will make your home more appealing.  Repaint rooms, remove wallpaper, and adding new fixtures and hardware are a few updates that can be quick and appealing. If this is too much trouble, then make sure to give your home a good cleaning and make small touches, such as putting out flowers and making your home smell good (for tips on this check out this link: These little touches will make your home more attractive to the buyer.
