Selling your property quickly
Your property has to stand out if it is to sell as quickly as possible. To achieve this you can follow the following tips so that your property looks as good as it possibly can.
De-clutter- Try to make your property look as spacious and clear as you can. This will allow your potential buyers to envisage themselves living in the property. Throw away any unwanted items and remove any unnecessary items that take up space such as specific items of furniture. Add more light by clearing windowsills and even opening blinds.
Clean – A good clean will make your home smell and feel fresh. The bathroom, kitchen and any other toilets should be the main focus here but also hoover carpets and polish all surfaces. Give the windows a thorough clean and even your sofas.
DIY – Aim to complete any jobs that you have been putting off such as painting or fixing any items that may need repairing such as cracks and holes in the walls. Leaking taps are another common problem as well creaking doors. Do as much as you can because the less problems there are, the more likely you are to sell your property.
Interior – Aim to get the interior of your property looking as smart and as bright and roomy as possible. Try not to include too many colours in the important rooms and clear the kitchen of any needless worktop items such as knife blocks and chopping boards. Giving buyers a blank canvas will allow them to see what mark they can make on the property.
Exterior – A buyer will make a decision as soon as they see the exterior of the property. If you have a front garden, cut the grass, remove weeds and put in some new plants with a little colour. Clean any paths and driveway and tidy up any fencing and walls.
