Think simple: mow the lawn, edge the driveway, throw down a few bags of mulch in beds near the front door, and trim your shrubs. Spray the cobwebs off the shutters and ditch the deteriorating basketball hoop. Wipe down the front door and wash the front windows.
Now let’s look at a second strategy for selling your home when you have to move long-distance suddenly.
Option 2: Expediting the Sale–Sell to an Investor
The second option for a home sale is to sell your property to an investor. The beauty of taking this route is that the whole process can be completed in a matter of days because home buying companies purchase properties in their existing condition. If your long-distance move is happening in two weeks, it’s entirely possible to have your house sold by that time.
