Sometimes, life circumstances might lead you to a new city or a different state entirely. In some cases, you might be able to take your time in packing your things and selling your home, but in other situations, time is of the essence. Perhaps you need to move fast to accept a new job somewhere else, or maybe you need to be close to a sick relative. Whatever the case may be, here are a few tips that can help you speed up the process of moving and selling your home.
The fewer things that you have to deal with, the less time it’s going to take you to move. As you’re packing your bags, declutter and get rid of the things you no longer need. Now is the time to be practical about the things you actually use and need. Once you’ve decided which things you can live without, you have three options: you can donate, sell, or throw away.
Get Rid of Junk
Particularly for spaces like basements and garages, hiring a junk removal team can be a huge help. You’ll still need to take the time to declutter and decide what you want to keep, but when you’re left with just your junk, you can hire a team to take it away for you. This service can also be extremely helpful if you want to get rid of large items like couches, mattresses, or other pieces of furniture
Enlist Some Help
The old saying, “It takes a village,” is often used in childcare, but it’s just as relevant when you’re getting ready to move. The more hands, the better! Get the entire family involved, as well as all the friends and neighbors who are willing to help. Even if they can’t be there on the day of the move, they may be able to help you pack some boxes or decide on what to keep. Just make sure you show your appreciation by providing a meal or giving a small gift.
Sell Your Home with a Cash Buyer
Now that you’ve got the moving part taken care of, it’s time to sell your home. Selling your home on the real estate market can often take weeks, even if the market is favoring sellers. If you don’t have that kind of time or don’t want to worry about finding a realtor and buyers, working with a cash buyer can be a great solution. Cash home buyers can provide an offer on your home in a week or two (instead of waiting six or more weeks on the real estate market).
