Not only because you want to complete the transaction for personal reasons, but also because the longer it sits for sale, the harder you’ll find a buyer willing to purchase it for or near your selling price.

There are many things you can do to setup your house for sale and make buyers more interested to get it right away. One is to get rid of comfort- and livability-reducing components in it. Here are some things you should eliminate to speed up the sale:

The causes of weird sounds

Many houses, especially the ones that have already been around for years, generate house-settling sounds. However, says that it’s important you know how to distinguish these from noises that mean a whole other thing. 

For instance, the rattling, squeaking, and scampering you hear may be from the little critters living in the hidden places of your house. This means that you’re sharing your home with unwanted tenants like cockroaches, rats, termites, and other vermin. As such, it’s important to contact a trustworthy pest control company as soon as possible.

Other outdated and worn components and systems

You may be selling an older house, but this shouldn’t mean you should sell it as is. Again, this isn’t to hasten the sale of your property, but to make certain the next family who moves in will enjoy a safe and quality life. Before you advertise the sale of your house, think about replacing cracked or damaged tiles, flooring, walls, and ceiling. In case the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) and plumbing system are extremely old, consider upgrading them.
