1. Fix it

Remember all those jobs that you've been putting off for the last few years, the ones that you never got round to? You need to sort those out. You might not notice the dripping tap or the damp patch in the corner any more, but any potential buyer definitely will. If you want them to walk straight back out of your door and into the bank to get a mortgage to buy your house, make sure everything looks good and is working exactly as it should.

2. Get the right agent

The right agent for a quick house saleMake sure you find an agent who is experienced in selling your type of property, and in your area too. There will have the best chance of providing relevant quick house sale advice that will get you a result – it’s no use appointing a flashy agent who talks a lot and promises a glossy sale brochure when they don't actually know the first thing about your type of property or what sort of person wants to buy it. If you get one of those, all will happen is that you end up with a long drawn out process with lots of people viewing the property and nobody buying it because it is being marketed to the wrong people.

3. Price it properly

It might sound obvious, but you need to make sure your house price is competitive. There is no way you are going to achieve a quick sale of house if the price is above, or even the same as, other similar properties in your area. Do some research (tip: visit the popular UK portal Find a Property, plug in your postcode details to compare house prices in your area). Look at asking prices and then adjust yours from 5% to 20% below those to create interest from buyers who are in a position to move quickly.

4. De-clutter it

Buyers form an impression of your home the second they stepped through the door. If all they see is clutter, they won't be interested. Tidy everything away so the place looks neat, sure that the storage bases well used and that there is plenty of it, and it will make a massive difference to the attitude and perceptions of potential buyers.

5. Modernise it

Ok, if funds are tight you aren’t going to be able to put in a new kitchen and bathroom, but there are some other things you can do to spruce up the property and encourage potential buyers to think that if they don't buy right now someone else will. Making minor changes like updating old-fashioned light fittings and switches, putting fashionable coloured (but still neutral) paint on the walls and even changing door handles can have a considerable difference on the way the potential buyer looks at your home
