There are a number of strategies to help sell an empty home quickly. First, let your neighbors know the home is vacant and ask if they can keep an eye on your house for you. Consider asking your local law enforcement officials to do the same. Ask neighbors to bring in the mail and any packages so that it looks like someone is living in the home. Additionally, maintain your regular outdoor maintenance for good curb appeal.

Another aspect to consider is the welcoming atmosphere of your house. Keep the lights on during the day, using timers to help control your energy costs. Make sure that the exterior of your home is well-lit at night. Maintain a reasonable temperature inside your home at all times to welcome potential buyers. No one wants to walk into a stuffy house in mid-summer or an ice box during the winter months while trying to get a feel for whether the house will work.

Consider staging your home with rented furniture and accessories to appeal to potential buyers. An even easier option is to use virtual staging to furnish your home with high-end appliances and furniture to highlight its best features.
