The property market in Aberdeen is one that has not performed particularly well during the last 12 months. The overall average price of each sale was £209,295 and this made the area higher priced than the likes of Rosemount, Hilton and Sheddocksley.
The price of property has dropped by 7% which is a considerable amount compared to the previous year.
Selling your property quickly
Choosing to sell your property is a big step but when you eventually put it up for sale you will want to find a buyer as soon as you can. This is something that is mainly out of your control but following the tips below will enable you to do as much as you can to make your property stand out from the rest.
De-clutter – Carrying out a de-clutter of your home is an instant way to create space. Clutter mainly consists of items that you want to throw away and items that you want to keep. The items that you would like to keep have to be stored away so that your buyers can walk into your home and see how much space it has to offer.
Clean – Cleaning your home will ensure that it looks tidy and fresh. Carpets can become dirty over time so shampoo them and give them a deep clean. Bathrooms and kitchens can collect a lot of dirt and so it is important to give them a thorough clean. Cleaning windows will allow more light into the room which will enhance the feeling of space.
DIY – Your buyers will not be interested in carrying out DIY as soon as they move in so make sure that you complete as much as possible. Painting walls, repairing broken doors or even a leaking tap will go a long way to solving small problems that could cause buyers to look elsewhere.
Interior – The interior of your home has to look appealing to buyers and not just to your taste. You may like bright colours and schemes but your buyers will not be able to see beyond that so choose neutral colours that buyers can add to should they purchase your property. Adding in soft furnishings to enhance the feel of comfort as well as mirrors to increase light will make a huge difference.
Exterior – If the exterior of your property is clean and tidy it will give the impression that your home is looked after. Trim the lawn, clear away weeds and dead plants and spend time clearing patios and pathways. Paint any walls that require repainting and ensure that all windows are cleaned.
