Selling your property quickly
If your property is on the market for a long period of time then it can seriously affect the price, so doing all you can to sell it quickly is important. To give your property the best chance of selling quickly you need to follow the tips below.
De-clutter- Clutter will certainly put prospective buyers off so ensure that you get rid of as much clutter as possible. Throw away what you can and store away other items that clog up your rooms. This could range from toys, to pictures and even books or CD’s. Clear the window sills to help it feel more spacious while also letting in more light.
Clean – A house that is dirty will take longer to sell so do your best to get everything thing spotlessly clean. Focus on the bathrooms and kitchens as these are rooms that do get dirty and hoover or mop all floors. Dust all surfaces and give the windows a good clean.
DIY – Broken fixtures and fittings will be noticed immediately as well as damage or scuffed walls. Fix any leaking taps, loose fittings and even give the rooms a lick of paint if possible to freshen up the place.
Interior – Keeping the interior of your property looking smart will make it easier for buyers to see what they are buying. Neutral tones and simple colour schemes will make them feel like they have a blank canvas to work from Encourage light by using mirrors and they will also make the interior feel more spacious.
Exterior – Give the outside of your property a thorough tidy. Clean walls, repaint fences and even jetwash your driveway. Cut the lawn, add new plants and trim any overgrown bushes or trees. The exterior of your property will form buyers first impressions.
