Selling your San Antonio Texas home is almost always a more complicated process than expected. But it can be especially difficult if you have to sell your San Antonio house fast. In this post, we will take a look at a few house selling tips in San Antonio that will allow you to get a fast sale.
Tip #1: Increase Your Odds
The first thing you should do to improve your chances of selling your house fast is to “stage” your home. This is when you make your house appear as attractive as possible to as many potential buyers as possible.
Consider the “curb appeal” of your home by putting yourself in the shoes of your prospective buyers. How will your house appear when they pull up in front? Consider what type of fairly inexpensive, fast improvements you can make – such as landscaping or tidying up your front yard– that will make your house more attractive.
If you simply don’t have time to clean the inside of your home yourself, spend a few bucks and have a local San Antonio cleaning service do it for you (there are a ton of good ones out there!). Then, once it’s cleaned, keep as many areas as possible off limits so that it stays neat and tidy. You may want to eat out until your home is sold! One tip is to keep all your surfaces free of clutter.
If you don’t have time to do home staging yourself, there are plenty of local home staging companies out there… just head to Google and type “San Antonio home staging companies”.
Tip #2: Upgrades Upgrades Upgrades
Ready for more house selling tips? Obviously, if you are going to be moving out of your home you don’t want to invest a lot of money in major improvements, such as a kitchen or bathroom remodel. However there are some more affordable upgrades you can make that can increase the value of your home and make it more attractive to buyers.
For example, if you currently have an old washer and dryer, replacing these with brand-new machines will only cost you a few hundred dollars but can really increase your home’s potential resale value. Plus, you can usually recover the cost of these types of upgrades –with interest – when you sell your home.
It’s not always possible to make the repairs and upgrades that are needed, however. If the work is more expensive than you can afford, feel free to call us at (210) 793-4448 to get a fast-fair offer on your house, as-is.

Tip #3: Don’t Distract Potential Buyers
When potential buyers look at your home, they want to see it as their new place, not your existing one.
Help them to see this illusion by removing everything that personalizes your home, such as family pictures, personalized art, and any type of clutter. (How To Remove Clutter)
It could be worthwhile to rent a storage unit for the time you are selling your home and move as much of your stuff as possible there to keep it out of the way.
The more open space you can have, the bigger your rooms will look and feel.
For local storage units just head to Google and search for “San Antonio storage units” and you’ll find a whole bunch of them!
