You Have a New Job and Need to Move Fast. What’s next?

Discover the Secret to Selling your Home Fast

Congrats – you landed your dream job! But it starts soon and you need to move. Here’s how to sell your house FAST.

Curb Appeal

Like with interviews, first impressions matter. What do people see when they pull up to your home? Look at your house with fresh eyes. What home improvements you can make on a budget?

Here are some ideas to get you started:

  1. Improve your landscaping (think sod, flower boxes, or a tree trimming);
  2. Pressure wash the exterior. Clean your windows while you’re at it;
  3. Get a cool mailbox;
  4. Add stylish house numbers, an address plaque, doorknob or lock set;
  5. Repaint your front door, trim or shutters with colors that pop;
  6. Update your exterior lighting; or at the very least
  7. Hide anything unsightly. This includes trash and recycling bins.

Thin your belongings

You’ve impressed people so far. They’re inside your home. Make sure clutter doesn’t get in the way of your sale.

Here’s how to show your house as their next home:

  • Make sure your closets, pantries and cabinets are half-full.

This helps your house breathe better and feel extra large. Even growing families can see themselves in your house now!

  • Make sure your closets, pantries and cabinets are half-full.

Take down as much of your art as you can live with. Get rid of your photos. Remove the tchotchkes. Neutralize your paint colors. People should imagine THEIR lives in your home, not your life in your home. Out with the old, in with the new, as they say.

For extra help, hire a home stager.


  • Get your home to shine!

Install bright light bulbs, get window treatments that let in natural light and keep your windows clean. If your house is dim, paint your ceilings white and your walls warm pastels. Yellows, greens and blues are safe bets.

  • Update your kitchen!

Even people who don’t cook appreciate a beautiful kitchen. So much so that it can add 10k or more to your home’s listing price. Check the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, IKEA and others for countertops, cabinets and more on the cheap. After that, a bathroom update is worth considering.

  • Make your home sparkle.

Hire cleaners if you must. Too much dog hair, dust bunnies, dishes or smells will have potential buyers walk away in droves, so your house should be show ready at a moment’s notice. If you have pets, they’ll need to stay at Aunt Sue’s for any open houses or walk throughs. Hide their food and litter boxes too.

Most importantly

At the end of the day, you’re a regular person with a great opportunity who needs to relocate fast.

How long your house sits on the market comes down to hiring the right real estate team to represent you.
