5 Ways to Streamline the Process When Selling a Home

 Moving home is arguably one of the most stressful things to do in life. Having so many things to do and often very little time to do it, you can easily find yourself going grey early. Luckily, there are things you can do to turn your mountains into molehills. From clearing your clutter to cutting the dreaded paperwork hassle down, we will examine 5 ways you can streamline the process of selling your home.

Cash House Buyers

You’re probably asking yourself what a cash house buyer is? Well, quite simply, it’s a company that will buy your home for cash outright. This means you don’t have to spend time with lawyers, estate agents, and waiting for endless viewings to take place. Although you get a quick sale, there are some risks: not all cash house buyers are legit; you will make less than market value; there is very little regulation.

If you do choose to save yourself some time this way, then be sure to use a reputable cash buyer like the people over at blueprinthomes.com.

Throw Away Distractions

We’re all guilty of procrastinating at the worst times. It could be the games console, the dog, or the needs of your children. Anything that will distract you from packing up your home and moving on needs to be gone. Give the dog to a neighbor, the kids to a friend, and they can take the games console with them. Your stress levels will be massively decreased and your brain will thank you for it. 

Downsizing

Now you’ve found a fast way to sell your home and got rid of any distractions, it’s time to pack your home up. We all know it feels like we have more things than we do. You can help yourself by clearing all the clutter you don’t need. Whether you sell it, chuck it, or donate it to a charity, the more you streamline, the less time it will take to sell your home.

Keep it Organized

There’s nothing worse than getting to a new house and finding your winter clothes when it’s the middle of summer. Stay ahead of the game and put detailed labels on all your boxes - this way, not only will your packing process be speedy, but the right boxes will end up in the right place on the other side

A Helping Hand

Now you’ve got this far, you should be looking at more of a molehill. To get over this last hurdle you can get some helping hands to make your life easier. This could be the muscly neighbors or if you’ve got some cash to flash, hire some handymen to do it for you. 

Breathe, you’ve made it to the end. Or at least, now you know what steps you can take to streamline the process of selling your home. No one is saying that it won’t still be stressful, it will be - but now you can manage that stress efficiently.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
