Selling your property quickly
If you are selling your property on the open market then you have to make your property look better than the rest. The following tips will help you to sell your property as fast as possible.
De-clutter- clearing your house of unnecessary clutter will make it look more spacious. So, throw away what you don’t need, store away toys, CD’s and ornaments as well as any other belongings such as cleaning products in the kitchen and cosmetics in the bathroom. To add extra light to your house, remove items from the windowsill and open all doors.
Have a good clean – Clean your home from top to bottom. Dust everywhere and clean the walls, carpets, windows and anything else that is on show. People like a clean bathroom and kitchen, so clean the hob and oven as well cupboard and draw fronts and the sink. Give all toilets, sinks, showers and baths a thorough clean to ensure everything is spotless.
Finish off odd jobs – Replace any broken lightbulbs, remove any marks on the walls or fill holes from past DIY jobs. Don’t be afraid to get a small amount of painting done in order to make the house look like it has been cared for.
Interior – Attempt to make the property as light and airy as possible but also make it feel homely. Soft furnishings always make things look more appealing and mirrors in the correct place can help to distribute light. Try to get a common theme in each room so it doesn’t look too scatty. A bit of uniformity will make it easier for viewers to see the bigger picture.
Exterior – The outside gives potential buyers a first impression, even if they are just driving by. Cut the lawns, remove the weeds, trim any trees or bushes and wash the driveway even give the fence a lick of paint.
