Selling your property quickly
To improve the chances of selling your Cambridge property quickly you have to ensure it looks appealing.
Follow these helpful tips to sell your property quickly.
De-clutter- Nobody wants to see a mess and the same goes for potential buyers. Store away as much clutter as possible and throw away anything that you no longer want or need. Items such as Cd’s, books and DVD’s need to be put away and window sills should be kept clear to encourage light.
Clean – Give your home a thorough clean throughout. Tackle carpets and hard floors and bring your bathroom and kitchen back to its best by focussing on sinks, taps, ovens, hobs and baths. Polish all surfaces and clean the windows.
DIY – Repair any cracks or holes in the walls and replace any fixtures that may be broken even going as fair as to oil creaking doors. A lick of paint will give any room a lift while external repairs to fencing or walls will offer extra appeal.
Interior – The interior is crucial so ensure that you try to make it as neutral and bright as possible. Adding extra light by strategically placed mirrors and lights will help to create the impression of space. The correct furnishings will make the world of difference.
Exterior – Your property has to have curbside appeal so do all you can to improve the exterior. Paint the house if you need to as well as fencing or walls. A clean pathway and driveway will help as will a good clean up of the garden and cutting of the lawn.
