So, you decided it's time to sell your Killeen, TX home and you are jumping at the bit to buy your new place. There's just one hurdle standing in your way - you have to sell your current Killeen house first. Through the grapevine or social interwebs you've heard horror stories about it taking months to get offers; or even worse, not even getting any offers; or worst of all, getting an offer on your house in Killeen only to see it fall thru last minute. Any of those home selling issues happen every day to Killeen homeowners looking to sell their house. But, YOU WANT TO SELL YOUR HOUSE FAST IN KILLEEN, Dag nabbit!
Well, if you're looking to sell your home on the MLS, there's a very simple, yet effective trick that's been proven to reduce your home's time on the market. A recent study by the Real Estate Staging Association found that un-staged homes spent an average of 107-days on the market. After staging, these same homes sold on average in 25-days while homes staged before going on the market sold on average in just 18-days. That's a wow-factor and something to note for those of you looking to sell your house fast in Killeen. Here at FixerUpper4Cash, your Killeen cash home buyers, we have even better news for you - it doesn't require any of your hard earned dollars to stage your house! We offer these six free tricks to sell your house quickly in Killeen:
1. Neat Freak Or Not...Channel It!
Whether you're a tidy person or not, now is the time to "sharpen your (tidying-up) axe" or to create one because tidying up is going to come in handy in the form of paying you dividends. The bottom line is this: declutter your house, you find your way to home buyers' hearts (and pocketbooks)!
Decluttering is not mathematical physics, it's simple really. The key here is to create an environment that is pleasing to the masses. Think of your friends houses' who you've always thought of as nice and neat, and mimic them. Pay particular attention to common clutter and junk magnets like:
- Kitchen and bathroom counters.
- Fireplace mantels.
- Laundry room shelves and book shelves.
- Entertainment centers.
More on closets...which sell houses fast in Killeen...If your closet is crowded, most buyers are going to think, "my stuff won't fit". Wow home buyers by showing them how much space there is for stuff - not how much stuff there is in the space.
2. Rearrange The Furniture
Once you've channeled (or created) your inner neat freak, take it all in for a second and try to see the big picture. Does your home say to buyers, "come on in, sit and stay for a while"? Does it flow throughout your home without buyers bumping into that dreadful clutter. If not, then keep on working until a buyer can seamlessly move throughout your home that you're looking to sell ASAP.
Here's some helpful pointers:
- Put bulky pieces in storage, in the attic, or worst case in a nonessential room like an office or garage.
- Move furniture away from walls.
- Re-purpose furniture within an existing room that will more effectively enhance a different room.
Bottom line is this - many homes we see are arranged so that the children can play in the middle of the room or so that the TV can be easily seen from every chair and sofa. Buyers want to walk in and see an open - yet intimate - space that stimulates conversation, not channel-surfing.
3. Think Like a Home Buyer
Although common sense to do it, cleaning for home showings is NOT fun. But many folks underestimate just how much it'll do to increase the home's sale price and they also underestimate just how clean it needs to be.
This isn't your run-of-the-mill weekend tidy-up. Think of it as the motha' of cleaning...and it's on giant steroids! It's all in the details. Think about what buyers look for and clean those areas. Pay close attention to these areas so that a fast home buyer buys your Killen, TX home quickly:
- Ceiling fans
- Window blinds
- Counter tops and tile grout
- Stove top
- Pet hair on the floor
- Under furniture and beds
Remember - nothing goes unscrubbed! Oh and don't forget your windows and mirrors - make em as shine as shiny as Mr. Cleans bald head!
4. Set the Table
We mean that literally and figuratively. You have to paint the picture for what a buyer's life will be like in your home. If you're a family living there, then it has to say to buyers "I think my family can live here too". And nothing epitomizes family quite like the dinner table. As such, give this area your upmost focused attention. Bring out and stage:
- Your best chinaware, flatware, and lines.
- Add seasonal, bold yet subtle colors.
- Add a centerpiece and/or table runner.
- Tuck in (and clean) those chairs.
And just an FYI, this need NOT be overkill - you don't have to set the table for every chair. Keep it real simple by setting just two spaces. Remember, the key is to paint the picture of what their life will be like in your home. Need some inspiration? There's plenty to draw on from the likes of Pinterest and a simple Google search.

5. Bring the Outside Inside
Any home has assets on the inside that help to sell your Killeen, TX house fast. But don't forget about, or even worse, discount your home's assets on the outside...and bring them inside! Take note of the existing blooms on the property and pluck those right up and place them right inside. They warm a room so much and scream, of course politely, "this is a wonderful space to be in". If there's no blooms on your property, no problem, pick them from a nearby field or spend $5 bucks at your local grocery store. Short on vases? Perhaps that's a good thing because you can add some unique vintage charm in the form of an antique pitcher or mason jar. You should also consider strategically placing some fresh fruits and veggies on a counter top. For the outside, if you've got a few funds to invest then we recommend painting trim and adding mulch to the front yard. Why? Because buyers give you about six seconds to make the sale - three seconds from the curb and three seconds from the foyer.
