The environment surrounding your home will become critical to the marketing of the property when you decide to sell. Be aware that even though you may be in dire financial straits, which is stressful of course, buyers will want to see something that gives them good value for their money.

Buyers will be impressed from the moment they pull up to the house or just drive by for a quick glance. If you do your part to clean things up and get them looking their best, that first impression will be a good one. Don’t neglect the yard because you can’t afford a major landscape project. Just keep the lawn mowed and the hedges trimmed. Plant a few inexpensive flowers to personalize it and give it a homey feel. This will not be expensive, but will take some effort on your part.

Clean up the clutter around the house. You’ll be moving anyway and will not want to drag all of your stuff with you if it is no longer useful to you. Tossing it out or giving it away before you sell the house will be more productive and you might get a bigger price for your house. Simply alter the time frame that you do the decluttering in for best results. You can also hold a yard sale and pick up a few extra dollars while you’re at it. Let each visitor to your sale know that you’re holding your sale because you will be putting the house on the market. Spread the word every where you can. Word of mouth costs you nothing but a bit of time.

Try giving your house a quick coat of paint in every room. Paint is inexpensive and will do wonders for the look of the rooms. Use neutral paint and if you have the time and extra money for a gallon or two of white, paint the window frames and door frames with white trim. It gives the house a clean look. Buyers love to see a clean house. Wash the windows and keep them washed throughout the selling process. Wash the curtains or replace them. Give your house every advantage to show well on the market.
