Selling your property quickly
For many home owners a quick sale is required but when they are competing with other properties on the market it can be difficult to make your property stand out from the rest. The following tips can help you to sell your property quickly.
De-clutter – Any home owner will appreciate the fact that we quickly amass a lot of belongings. If your home is cluttered then potential buyers will be unable to see what your home has to offer. Begin by being quite ruthless, so throw away any items that you no longer require and store away as much as possible. Ornaments, toys, books and even some furniture can be stored away to make your home look cleaner and more spacious.
In the kitchen and bathroom hide away and cleaning products or cosmetics and make sure all window sills and doorways are not blocked up in order to allow as much light in as possible.
Clean – Give your home an exceptionally good clean. A spotless house will not only look good but it will also smell appealing. Clean the walls, carpets, sofas and windows, removing as much dust and dirt as possible.
The kitchen and bathroom are key areas here because odours and grime can build up quickly. Clean the toilets thoroughly as well as the shower, bath and sink. Where there is tiling, do your best to get the grout looking as new as possible and remove limescale from any surface and give the oven and hob a thorough clean.
DIY – You may have a list of jobs that you have been putting off for some time but now is the time to do them. Replace broken lightbulbs, touch up any scuffs or marks on the walls and even look to give some rooms a freshen up with some paint.
Interior– When people view a house, the interior design is important to them as it gives them a feel of what they can achieve should they purchase your property. So freshen up the interior by making it feel light and airy and add mirrors where possible along with extra lighting such as a lamp to offer more light and space.
Exterior – Give the lawns a cut, jetwash any paving slabs and give the windows a good clean. Remove any weeds and throw away dead plants and empty pots and then just have a general clean up to make sure it looks as good as possible.
