It is necessary to prepare your house for a quick sale when you need to sell your house fast. The following points are a good check list of the things to pay attention to:

1) Price
Most house buyers always look at the price as the first thing when looking to buy a house. If you price it lower than other similar houses in the market, it sticks out more in the market and attracts more interested buyers.

Houses that have been on the market for more than 3 weeks lose their appeal to most buyers.

Detach yourself emotionally from the house when setting the price tag. It is no longer important what you paid for it; what matters is how does the current price compare with similar houses in the neighborhood.

If your mortgage balance allows you to set the price lower than other similar houses, by all means go for it.

If you work with a Realtor, they might help you with the best pricing for your house. Look at the house more like a buyer instead of the seller. Highlight all amenities - location, size and other factors that make it more appealing than other similar houses. If you were buying a house, would you buy this house instead of all the others?

2) Physical condition of the house
When you look at the house from the outside, what is the first impression you get? Does it look like it needs some work from the outside?

When they step through the door, are the smell and atmosphere welcoming to them? If you were a buyer, would you love to live in this house?

Do not spend too much money fixing it up or you cannot price it competitively.

Do not go beyond minor cleaning up and touch-ups.
